Oh yeah, a GIVEAWAY.  In celebration of my birthday and holidays coming so soon thought it would be fun to share my festive attitude with my hooker blogger friends.

Previously I showed a picture of my new Christmas design which had just been started, and then an update.  So here is  now the finished hooked piece and I like it a lot.  It measures 10 x 18 ~ actually, you hookers know that sometimes in some areas it might be a smidgen over or under as is the case with this mat.  But the approximate size is between 10x18 and 10.5 x 18.5.  And I just finished hooking it and should have tugged at the right top corner to get a better and more straight picture, but didn't.
The outside one line border was a special gift oh so many years ago at Cape May when the multi-colored, dip dyed piece arrived.  It was in an anniversary gift bag and while I had no idea how it would ever be used in a rug of mine it has now settled nicely in this design.

So, in just 2 days, before noon, the winner will be drawn for the GIVEAWAY  for this Holiday Tree Ornaments PATTERN on linen to the lucky winner.  Sorry guys, not the finished piece, that will be offered for sale on my web site.

The requirements are that you be a FOLLOWER and no anonymous OR NO-REPLY messages will be included.  So, if you are among those who wish to remain "anonomous' with a no identity and NO-REPLY you will not be included.  Those e-mails go to my spam and will not be seen so not included.  Only those people whose comments show up on my blog will be included.

The winner will be chosen on December 4th before noon.  Good luck for those of you who enter and thanks so much for visiting.



  1. it is coming along so nicely! love the colors. I don't hook as you know, but still count me in. Here is a stupid question, can you hook with strips of cotton, I think you can, but duh? me, I don't know. If you did what size strips and what kind of cotton? yard goods, tee shirts? hook? Because, wool I am allergic to it. Thinking you couldn't get the pretty dye changes like you do with the wool.

  8. Saundra - I enlarged the photo of your rug so I could see the background better - the wool you're using is PERFECT for this rug - the whole thing is so cute! It would be fun to hook it up myself - what a lovely giveaway!
