I would like to welcome those of you who are visiting for the first time participating in Vicki’s “Grow Your Blog Event“.  I started blogging in 2009 and this is my brand new website/blog launched about a week ago.  

My name is Lorraine and I am a textile/mixed media artist.  I painted for many years then ventured into textile/quilting and paper arts.  Several years ago I became interested in hand embroidery techniques and crazy quilting.   After dyeing fabric and experimental surface design it seemed a natural progression to start dyeing my own threads as I love COLOUR!   I opened ColourComplements (previously LES designs) in September of 2012.  I create beautiful, bold, vibrant one of a kind over dyed threads – perle cottons, rayon, sparkle chainette, viscose tubular ribbon and silk!  I generally post three times weekly about any ongoing projects and any new additions to the shop.  You will be the first to know if you sign up to follow me!  My plan is to start offering tutorials this year too so stay tuned.

In appreciation of your visit I am offering a sampler giveaway of my threads.   Of course, I’d be delighted if you would like to sign up to follow me!  Lots of options to do so – signing up at the end of each post via direct email, RSS feed box in my sidebar OR the “updates via email” slot in my sidebar.  For the giveaway all you need to do is leave a comment.  I’ll be selecting a winner via random generator on Saturday February 15, 2014.   This is the sampler you could win!


I hope you enjoy your visit!  I will be taking a break from blogging over the next week so I may visit YOU!  Remember, I’ll announce the winner on February 15th!
