I don't often comment on blogs - So I understand but if you were going to comment on a blog this would be the post to do so.

Our Samples from the mill, They came on Valentines Day!!!We kept taking them out and ooohing

We love our wool, We love what we do and we love you.
 We started out as a "Handmade America" and love to know that our wool is helping to carry on that role.
But Reallly.... Why should we have all the fun, Lets pass it on!
If you have a crafting blog and use our wool or would like to, We are going to let you get the FIRST peek at them and do a giveaway with them.
If your blog is on our blog roll then you are automatically in the running to be the blog we choose.
If you have a crafting blog and use our wool or would like to, let us know about it by entering it in the comments section and I will add you to our blog roll.

Blog Love and a FREE pattern!

 As I may have mentioned before, I have some serious blog love for Jodie over at RicRac . Well guess what, She has woolley Love for Heavens to Betsy. Jodie is over in beautiful Australia where there are plenty of sheep but hardly any wools (?) So I may have sucked up a little bit by sending a present. Jodie in turn has sent the link for this too cute pattern, Totally FREE for you to enjoy.Thanks so much Jodie!
I am having trouble with the direct link not working but you can view and print the pattern by going to RicRac and clicking the free tutorial for little bird on the right hand side.

Mom's Hooking Style

Its been way too long since I last posted, I apologize. There have been colds,Snow days, New wools delivered,Crashed Computers,New computers and hence an addiction to farming in farmville.

My Absolute favorite in any of mom's hooked rugs is the movement she creates with her wool. Here are few photos of what she has been up to that highlight her fantastic hooking style. This is such a great way to use wool that you have on hand that you really aren't sure what to do with!

These last two images are using our new black wool "Oliver" for the background. The images are not the greatest due to using my phone's camera, I will have better ones in the near future as soon as I get a new photo program loaded onto the new laptop - that I got for a steal at Staples for only $499 !
