Ooooh pretty! Sign me up for the Heavens to Betsy beautiful wool. It will be put to good use in lots of hooked rugs and pillows. I love the gold for backgrounds or the pinks and roses for flowers. Oh it's all pretty so it's hard to pick a favorite color.
My suggestion is to take my entry and rub it with tuna. That should help Morris.....hehehe

Hi Gals Well let me tell you about me and the Brown UPS truck. He drove down my dirt road real slow like he was lost and then past my house! I ran in the house and got my keys and drove after him. Lucky he was turning around down the street to take a second look and there I waved him down!Lol I had no makeup on in my garden clothes dirty garden jeans. It wasn't my finest hour but I got the Heavens to Betsy wool!

Joanne said...

Oh Cheri - too funny with you chasing the UPS truck!

well sign me up for the Heaven's to Betsy wool give-a-way also! I love their wool and would buy more if I was employed - LOL But at least I can oogle it at the hook-ins! My favorite color to hook with is too many to mention - most all my rugs have some sortof red in them or a gold/tan! Right now I am hooking redware eggs for my give-a-way! Hmmm if Morris is like Jonesy (who will be picking my winner) he likes paper balls so I figured I will ball up all the names and let him pick.

Thanks for the opportunity to be entered!

Larkrise garden girl said...

Hi Joanne, Good idea with Jonesy. I wish I could fiquer out what that is on your blog.I am tempted to email my mother in law who is 94 and ask her what it is. Lol Your eggs look great!Don't forget to click my link to their blog and you get a second chance to win. Cheri

My current project(finished hooking it just this weekend)is a floral rug that used Heavens to Betsy "Kermit the Frog" from the January wools for the background. I should have a picture of the rug on my blog within the next few days.

My favorite color would probably be blue, although purple is a close second.

My anniversary is on April 11, so hopefully that will bring me an extra bit of luck for the giveaway.

I LOVE all of the new color's.. ESPECIALLY now that Spring is FINALLY starting to emerge..COLOR is GOOD!

Bye the way..I Love the pictures of your yard and can't wait to plant in my own!:) Have a great day! 00seaurchin00@gmail.com
