Wool Smiles!


                                              Sheep Weathervane soon to be back on my roof.  
                                               
Sunday in California and it’cloudy and suppose to rain again. So here I sit with a smile on my face. I am one of the most appreciative persons I know. I don’t take things for granted . So Friday when I called up Heavens to Betsy to order my wool to finish my rug. I was surprised to hear she had heard my name before . Well there are several Cheri's I explained to her I am one of the Cheri's that she follows on her website and maybe she knows as Back to Larkrise, Lol.


So this wonderful stranger with the nicest voice offered to give me FREE WOOL for a give away from Heavens To Betsy. Isn’t that exciting! The wool has never been seen yet it’s all new and the  wool samples have not even been sent out yet! As soon as the package arrives I will take some pictures and start  the official give away. Isn’t that funny how when you least expect it you have a big smile on your face and a happy moment is here for all of us to share. I have never had a give away so this is kind of exciting. My mail is up the street since were on a dirt road so I will be sprinting every day to see if 
it's here. I can hardly wait.

On a Cat note Morris my Big Orange Kitty has been hunting again. Morris  caught a big gopher yesterday but this morning he caught a bird.My husband rescued the bird by releasing him from Morris's
mouth and he flew away! Morris was trying to bring the bird in the house. I know it was a gift but he got a scolding No Birds! with a fluff of his tail Morris gave an angry face and sulked outside. That Cat at least he is not getting into any more cat fights. Cheri

New Heavens to Betsy wool?? Ooh, I am trembling with excitement ! I love their wool. I can't wait to see it. I better wait to see the new stuff before I place a new order.
Poor Morris thought he was bringing you a present. However I understand your return policy. Lol

Hi Kim, I Just got back from the grocery store. Wow the prices have gone up Gas prices are at four dollar a gallon gas and it's being passed down getting groceries.Oh well I am done complaining. Morris getting two critters in two days is a great indication he is back to his hunting ways.Thank goodness Jack was able to release the poor bird.Cheri

What fun!! It's so great that she's sending you this wool! Your weather vane is the greatest!! My cat used to bring me moles. She was so proud of them. I felt so badly for them. But I did love her lots!

Hi Cathy and Courtney, There is a store in Julian that has weathervanes and woodburning stoves. The store is still there but I don't know the name of it. Moles wow! I don't know if we have them in my yard just gophers. Isn't that great about the give away of wool that is so nice of them. Cheri

It's so nice of Heavens to Betsy to recognized you and offered you free wool for a give away. Aren't you tempted the least little bit to keep that new wool for yourself? Wool is like candy. I love to look at it and rearrange it by color and size in little baskets. I don't eat it of course but you know what I mean. lol. Morris is doing a great cat job. At least he's not bringing frogs in the house like my kitty used to.

I love your weather vane too. Have a great week. JB
