Spring Tease

Two gorgeous spring-like days have given way to gusty winds and colder temperatures. Mother Nature's tease has got me thinking about Spring things, like these lovely eggs decorated by Polish tatter, Woalka.

Woalka saw eggs on Renulek's blog and shows hers as she watches closely for more shared patterns.

Once the ChocoLove Giveaway is over, I look forward to playing around with egg patterns too.

ChocoLove Giveaway!

ChocoLove Giveaway Prizes

Ah, l'amour. If secret longings (or the more openly professed kind) have your tatting heart pounding, let me help take your mind off things with a sweet treat.

What could be sweeter than a GIVEAWAY?

Here's your chance to sate those lace cravings with one of four "ChocoLove" gift packs.

Up for grabs are four Dream in Chocolate notepads. (They are all the same, so I only put one in the photo.)

Tatskool has donated four scrumptious skeins from her superb Choco-family of hand-dyed threads (HDT):
  • ChocoMango
  • ChocoLime
  • ChocoRaspberry
  • Raspberry Ripple with Real Vanilla

Four 3.2 oz (90 g) bars of dark Belgian chocolate in these tempting flavors:
  • Raspberries in Dark Chocolate
  • Peppermint in Dark Chocolate
  • Orange Peel in Dark Chocolate
  • Chilies & Cherries in Dark Chocolate

Winners will receive one gift pack each containing a Dream in Chocolate notepad, a bar of ChocoLove Belgian dark chocolate (It has a love poem inside.) and a skein of Tatskool's size 20 HDT.

Does that put you in the mood?

To enter, please leave a comment on THIS POST by 12:00 p.m. Eastern Time on Monday, February 21. Also please include a valid contact. (You can use your blog or e-mail address. For example, isdihara at verizon dot net)

Winners will be chosen by random number generator and announced on Tuesday, February 22, 2011.

Even if you are feeling cynical about love this year, there's no better revenge than indulging in a little lace-inspired ChocoLove. Good Luck!
