Big Summer Yarn Giveaway!

big summer yarn giveaway on

I have some good news on the home front! We have finally moved. As you might have noticed, I was a bit stressed about the whole thing, but now, with each and every box, crochet hook and spatula successfully moved and unpacked, I am starting to enjoy the settling in phase. I can’t wait to start taking pictures of new recipes and some new hooky stuff to share with you. Soon!

Till then, to celebrate the big move thing and mostly, to thank you for your patient waiting for me to have time to sit down to my computer again, I am GIVING AWAY some delicious YARN today. It’s bulky, soft and very easy to work with. I actually used it to make my latest project – the Crochet Flower Rug. The package that ONE of you can receive has just enough yarn to make the above mentioned rug. Or anything else that will please you. Oh, and it comes with a crochet hook too!



To enter the contest, just answer this question: DO YOU HAVE ANY FUN PLANS FOR THE REST OF THE SUMMER? (Leave your answer in the Comments section of this post please.)

    I will be going with my daughter and taking the grandchildren to the Dinasoar Museum and the Gopher Museum in Drumheller, Alberta – Canada and we are all so very excited!! The gophers are dressed up in different scenes and there is even one in a wedding party complete with bride and groom. I plan to get more creative this winter and have designed my own craft room complete with many organizers, fold up craft table and just purchased a sewing machine and with help from You Tube will be teaching myself to sew. Fun!

My husband makes beautiful hand-turned pins and he’ll be busy with that, and come October for our anniversary we will be traveling to Maine to visit dear friends. I am so blessed to be doing what I love with the people I love most! Thanks so much for the contest – good luck to us all!
