Poppies and Heart of the Rainbow both blow me away. I suppose they are similar a bit, so I'd probably have to buy Fresh or Regatta, too. These are all so stunning.

Really any of your silks are gorgeous, but I tend to love the bright, bold combos the best as they just seem so happy.

Lindsey said...

Wow, I don't think its possible to pick just one...or even two favorites. I love the vibrant colors you use. If I have to pick I would say the Regatta is my fav. And I love the Fairy Land hand painted silkscape...gorgeous!

Danielle said...

Heart of the fire and Map of the earth are my two favourites! You have beautiful silks.

I've always wanted to try these with my children to see how their imaginations would take over...maybe now is my chance?

Thanks!

Heart of Hyacinth b/c those are the first beautiful flowers of spring around here. The first color after all the brown and gray.

Sherry said...

It would be so hard to choose. We have yet to get a playsilk, just learned of them recently. We have a son with handicaps and he always has to carry things around, blankies, flannels, anything for comfort. He loves bright colorful things with any kind of greens and blues. Good Earth and Heart of the ocen are a fav now. Heart of the ocean reminds me of our son even though he doesn't talk, he has the biggest herat, you can see it in his eyes. my email is mysticviewgoldens at live dot com

Aimee said...

I would go with Heart of the Morning Mist and Heart of the Dawn. They are so gorgeous, and perfect for my sweet little girl! It would be AMAZING to win them!

Jingle said...

I would choose Good Earth and Fire. I love the elemental feel of these colorways and the symbolism they invoke! They are truly inspiring!

I'd go with Icecap and Garden at Giverny. The first is sharp and clear and the second is sort of fuzzy - each has its place for sure!

Heart of the Sunrise and Heart of the Dawn would be my choices if I was so lucky as to win this, my daughter is very drawn to pinks and warm colours right now. She loves playsilks and would treasure this so much! What a great Solstice gift this would make!!!

Love all your gorgeous work! we love the 2 playsilks we have ordered from you and the wearable wonder dress up skirt and head garland are beautiful as well that I purchased for my daughter for her bday. I love something specific about all your colourways but if i were to choose 2 it would be Good Earth and Ice Cap. Good Earth because well I love anything Earthy and think it would be beautiful for a playscape and Ice Cap because would love to create a water/river playscape for my daughter.

Margo B said...

Wonderful giveaway - we got our first bunch of silks from you for our daughter's 2nd birthday last month and she loves, loves, loves them.

With Christmas coming I'm tempted to introduce some of her cousins to the joys of playsilks -I think Sweetheart and Heart of the Hyacinth would suit her cousin nicely.

I would love to enter this giveaway, and the color way of my choice would be two earthen tones, I like your brown and golden looking shade, I would choose those colors because they are of the only shades that I do not have already..

I am so excited to have found your etsy shop (and from there your blog) tonight. I have been playing with felt all week (making a horn of plenty and harvest vegetable set for my kids) & am also working towards my daughter's fairy birthday party and Christmas. I can only imagine the level of play & enjoyment they would have with the map of hte world & heart of the hyacinth playsilks with the brand new-to-us treehouse that santa will be bringing for my son. I was looking for playsilks for her party & came across your work - absolutely fabulous. I'll be adding the fairyland hand painted silk to our wishlist for Christmas - what an amazing dreamland!!
