Free on Friday: For Your Little Tootsies

In a past life I dyed a lot of socks. But, after years of therapy, I gave up that obsession and now only hand-dye fabric and thread. It's good to be cured.
My therapy session. War of the Roses
Now your feet can enjoy my last pair of colorful socks (never been worn). Leave a comment today
and a lucky winner will win a pair of ladies hand-dyed socks!

How cool is that - handdyed socks !! I would love to win them, but I feel like I'm already a winner - I won an idea what to dye at my next dying session ! Thanks for that ;-))

Sally Westcott said...

I would just love those socks! At the moment my feet are clad in bright purple, wool socks to keep the snow away! My sock draw is calling out to your amazing socks! Pick me! Pick me!

I agree will Quilthexle - ta so much for the idea! Now I know what to do with those left over dyes that make me feel guilty.

Laura,
Love the socks, love your hand dyes and your threads. Mostly I am taken with "War of the Roses," which inspires me to take a look at the garden in a different way. Especially love how the clippers look like little birds with their mouths open!

I would be the envy of all at our folkdance group with socks like that!

Michele said...

What cool socks! I love all your beautiful dyed fabrics.

Willa said...

Hand dyed socks sound like too much fun!

Aussie Jo said...

Would love the socks (my daughter would probably pinch them), and love your colourful blog too!!!

Linda said...

How fun! Count me in! Would you sign your name on them?

debra said...

I would love a pair of your brightly dyed socks! They would fit right in with my ever-growing sock collection.

upstateLisa said...

Moving on to bigger and better!? Great socks!

Nicole said...

I would love to be the winner of those great socks. I have a home daycare and always wear crazy bright socks. I have never had a pair of tie dyed and that may be a super fun project!

Debbie said...

I would definitely wear those socks, Laura! I kind of like those colorful gloves on the quilt, too. Some years ago my son had a skin condition on his hands and had to wear a cream with cotton gloves (like the white glove ladies) on his hands. I dyed them all different colors. He had more fun wearing them that way.

I have a pair of panties hand dyed by Ami Simms (I had to rewrite that sentence. At first I had written, "I have a pair of Ami Simms' hand dyed panties." and that just sounded wrong! LOL) Anyway I would love to have a pair of Laura Wasilowski's hand dyed socks! ;o)

kimlyn said...

Love your socks. I just recently found your blog and now visit daily. You never cease to make me smile. :-)

Have a great weekend.

It would be so fun to wear socks like those with some bright sandals next month when I visit my sisters in New England...

Betty said...

I would love to wear that pair of socks. Thanks for the chance.

Jennifer said...

Love the socks! Glad you moved on to fabric dying though!

Cherie in St Louis said...

It's a bit sad that these are your last pair but who wouldn't want to win these??!! I participate in Ami Simms' annual Sisterhood of the Traveling Panties dyeing and have 14 pair of hand dyed panties :) Socks like these will fit right in!

cindy said...

I'm glad that I took the time out of our "getting ready for tea party" time to come by. So you are not going to hand dye any more socks?? what a shame but I understand, some things can be, well just better left for others. They are lovely and I hope I win, ooopps did I say that.
Have a wonderful day. I promise to be by more often as the tourist season slows a bit more.

I love your quilt and all the dyed fabrics. I like the idea of making a piece with an object that I can repeat and use different fabrics in.

Jean said...

I love the socks! How did you give you give up dying them? (Surely you aren't wearing plain white ones right now??:)

judi said...

I still regret not buying a pair of dyed sox from Artfabrik at QBL in 1996!!!

Yummy, Yummy, Yummy! My tootsies will sing if I win.

Sally said...

I would love to win the socks but am equally excited to make some of my own!

Marian said...

LOVE the socks! I'm glad you move on to fabric dying, but I think if it were me a stray pair would still end up in the dye every now and then.

Barbi said...

Socks or not socks? That is the question. I am wondering now about ways to use a thread blob.

Shawn said...

I love those PICK ME!!!

Jane Jeffress Thomas said...

I love bright colors and wear socks in the house even in the summer. Guess I am getting so old I don't have good circulation in my feet. :-) Love those socks!!! Thanks!!!

Well if they are extra large I could use some socks.

TJM wanna be quilt artist said...

Hardvto think of you sock less...but pass them my way please....

Diane J. Evans said...

Oooh, my cold tootsies could use these! After all, my philosophy has always been, "If you can't decide what color to wear, wear 'em all."
