Yoo Hoo! Post number 100!!! Give-away!!!

I never thought when I started writing Shabby Sheep that I would ever reach that 100 mark!  Thanks for continuing to be curious about what I’m working on and doing!  As promised I am going to start the give away RIGHT NOW…

And it will end on Fathers Day at 12:00 noon.  I will have my daddy draw the name!  How fun is that?

Here is what I’m giving away.  These pieces of red, white and blue wool and this piece of red,white and blue wool!

blog giveaway wool

And this great hooking journal with red, white and blue wool “fringe” on the edge.



To enter, just leave a comment on this post.  For an extra entry mention it on your blog (entry #2)—and let me know.  For the third entry, put a link on your blog to this post! And let me know.

 And today I want to show you the pattern I’ve drawn for my Shabby Sheep logo rug. 


I’m going to add a paper Stanley Home Products tape measure to the bottom.  A friend gave it to me to decorate my sewing box with it.  And the crocheted pieces I got at a garage sale.  (I think they were made for pillow case and tablecloth edging) And also the antique buttons that my mother-in-law gave me.  She brought me a whole tin of these cool buttons that were her mom’s.  And at the bottom are the swatches of the dyes I am going to use.  They are Pro Chem.  I’ll be using the lightest of the swatches.  I can’t wait to get this started but I’m waiting for the dye to arrive in the mail and I haven’t finished the binding on my chicken yet.  Really don’t like to start another project until the last one is completed, you know.

This is being typed with the Windows Live Writer that I heard about on  So far it’s MUCH easier than the format on blogger.  It is still the “carrier” of this blog.  Just using the live writer for the writing!  So easy!! 

You can link to Windows Live Writer Here.

Thank you again for reading about my little life and Get Registered!!!

sheri, your shabby sheep with embellishments will be a great project. It is adorable. I also buy vintage lace and have some that I just bought from a hand crocheted canopy that I want to put on pillow cases and sheets--I know that I will never use the canopy. Your give away looks yummy and I am so impressed...100posts and I am still struggling to set up my blog. arlyce

Sheri, I bet when you began your blog you didn't think of writing 100 of them!! I enjoy all of them!You know how odd it is that we haven't "offically" met yet we live in the same town, well "Betsy" from "Heavens To Betsy" is one of my very best friends! We met at a Rug Retreat 10 years ago and see each other every summer! I love her wool so your Give-Away is wonderful. I love your Journal also! You are a very talented woman! Love Ya, Jeanne
