It's MY Turn on the WOOL Blog Hop & a GIVEAWAY!!

I sure hope everyone has enjoyed themselves all week long.  I've seen some UBER talented gals out there who have come up w/some really cool ideas for using WOOL.  Once again, I want to give a big thank you to Denise from Quilted Brain for organizing this blog hop!  

Here's a few things that I finished earlier this week made especially for this hop.  I have been wanting to make up these guys for some time now and this blog hop helped motivate me to get cranking.  Those of you who know me, know that I love to create w/a variety of different things, namely WOOL applique, cross stitch and sewing/quilting. For those who don't know me that well, I used to have my very own shop yrs. ago, but now I have an Etsy shop where I sell needlecraft supplies for those same things I love to create with.  I decided to use a pattern I had from 'Simply Unique' called 'Owl Trio'.  (and yes, you can find a couple of these patterns listed in my Etsy shop if you want to make them yourself).  I used mostly a buttonhole stitch and what I like to call a 'prim' stitch.
 Please meet..........Ollie
 Oscar...........
 and Opie..........
 I love using overdyed wools the best.  They are my favorite.  I've made quite a few things over the last few yrs., mostly candle mats, table runners, and pillows.   I absolutely LOVE working w/wool!  It is such a wonderful fabric to stitch on.

And now for the GIVE~AWAY, I decided to design a little candle mat for you.  (I hope you can tell they are pumpkins and acorns) tee hee.  Totally NOT perfect, just primitive!
 You can turn it any way you like.........


 Here's what it looks like w/a candle in the center........(but that's not included in the give~away)!
 How can you get in on this........???
*Well, all you have to do is be a follower of my blog and state that you'd like to enter in your comment, that way I'll know for sure. (New followers are more than welcome, please click on to join in)!   That's it ~ easy peasy!!!  (please leave me some way to contact you if you don't have a blog).


**Oh, and for another TWO more entries ~ if you buy something from my ETSY shop(from now till next FRI. Oct. 4th ~ midnight EST), in ANY $$ amount, I will enter your name 2 more times.  To top it off, I am having a 15% off SALE on everything in my shop as well!!  You will need to use the coupon code WOOLBLOGHOP13 - (no spaces or it won't work).  The GIVE~AWAY will end on the same day at the same time. (oh, and did I mention that I usually put a discounted price on most of my items in my shop as the everyday price)??

Please go visit all the other gals on today's list as this is the very last day of the hop!  I hope you've enjoyed seeing all the wooly goodness that lurks in blogland around the globe!  Thanks for stopping by!
