  7. I'm glad I found you through Danielle. What a charming creations and a precious event to have a giveaway for. (bless your heart)

    I fancy the owl.


  8. This is a really nice giveaway, especially as it has so much meaning to you. I think I'm in love with the owl as well, as owls are pretty cute, ( even though the eyes could mean business) especially when you wake up in the morning to one hooting at you!

    I'm also glad I found you through Danielle, you have a really nice blog <3


  9. What a nice giveaway. My dad passed away when I was 7, I have a handful of memories of him. I love the owl. I came over from Danielles blog.

    Happy weekend.


  10. YAY! Thanks to Danielle for the props! You rock girl!!! And thanks to everyone who is following and who posted comments... Welcome, its always nice to have new friends! Good luck y'all!

  11. I followed the owl, not even looking at the words. love it! cheers & keep creating! :)

  12. i love that funky owl because my sisters nickname is Hoot. she cries like an owl, true story. "whooooo whoooooo".

  13. I love that owl! I'm hosting my first giveaway this week too.

  14. they are all great items but i think the hand spun yarn is my favorite. it is beautiful. it makes me miss spinning (had to put the wheel away when my 5 year old was 2 before she completely destroyed it.

    what a neat way to honor your dad! i'm posting to facebook and to my blog.

  15. I just found your blog through Danielle, too, and it warms my little heart to see this lovely giveaway! What beautiful items to give away, and what a stunningly beautiful reason to do it.

    I am in love with the yarn- -I admire you for doing such a great craft...I only wish I could learn!


  16. What a beautiful way to honor your father! My father dies on Thanksgiving when I was 14, and his birthday was just a few weeks before that. Often around that time, I will set out an extra plate at dinner time as a way to remember him. My children will never meet him, so it's nice for them to hear stories and learn a little bit about their grandpa.

    The felted owl is adorable and the earrings are lovely, but the knitter in me says "I must have that green handspun!!!"


  17. This is such a wonderful giveaway, especially in honour of your daddy. (:
    I'm in love with the owl, hoooot!

  18. Oh this is very hard, they are all so beautiful. The owl is the cutest thing, the earrings are lovely and the yarn is gorgeous. Guess the compulsive knitter wins out, I would choose the yarn.

  19. Thanks everyone for your comments! It makes me so happy that you all have such wonderful things to say about my things!!!

    @ Adie! check out this website
    if you want to learn to spin (and you should, its the BEST, addicting and relaxing!) this is a great place to learn about it and it teaches you how to use a drop spindle...

    Also, I want to thank those of you who, in your comments, shared about your losses. As hard as it is, so many rays of sun shine through in place of my dad being (physically) gone.
    @ maria, I love the idea of putting a plate of food out for him!

    thanks all! and keep telling your friends about the give away! You are all AWESOME!

  31. I just found your blog and find it intriguing. I have never known or read about anyone who spins yarn. I was totally fascinated by all the yarn and wool goodies.

    Gotta love that beautiful dyed yarn.

  32. What a lovely give away. I'd have to say that the hand spun yarn is too lovely to resist!

  33. What a great giveaway! I love the little owl, but then I am biased as I love all things avian - I have a pet African Grey parrot called Lily. She is a little character!
