My Yarny Winnings from Brown Sheep Company!

On April 6th I checked my Twitter feed to see what was the haps.  As I scrolled THIS got my attention:

Elizabeth Clements! Calling Elizabeth Clements! Message me, please, Elizabeth Clements! You are our winner of our random drawing that includes all of our first 2,000 “Likes!”

I clicked the link that took me to the Facebook page of Brown Sheep Company.  I asked them if it was really me they were trying to reach.  ( I haven’t won anything since the 7th grade.  A phone.  It was UGLY.)  There ARE a few Elizabeth Clements out there, you know.   Guess what!  It WAS me!  Not only did I win, I won YARN.  Glorious, wonderful yarn.

After emailing back and forth with the lovely Melissa from Brown Sheep, I was all set.  All I had to do was wait.  Patiently.  For yarn.   Patiently waiting.  Pay-shen-tleeeeee.

Finally, it arrived on Friday.  I took it out and spread it before me.  The color is rich, and the yarn is so soft.  I received a pattern for a knit jacket called Two for Tea.  I feel so very, very blessed.  The economy has steamrolled my yarn budget.  I have been living on Red Heart Super Saver yarn.  It is nice to receive some yarn that won’t turn to lava in a fire.  This yarn is definitely a blessing from above.

Here is a looksy:

 

 

 

Pretty, right?

 

Go check out Brown Sheep’s site and get a look at all of their wonderful yarn.  The only retailer I have found is about an hour away from me.  Boo!  But it is well worth the trip.  Brown Sheep is a family owned company located in Mitchell, Nebraska.  I love Nebraska.  I used to make a pit stop there on cross country drives in Sidney.  (Cabela’s was a great distraction for my son when he was a tiny tot.)

My thanks to Brown Sheep Company, for making this lady very happy.

Giving is the greatest!

If I could spend the rest of my life creating beautiful things and then giving them to wonderful people, I would do it.  Really!  There is no greater joy than giving something hand made with love to another precious soul!

The sun has made this Saturday so lovely.

I feel so loved when all of the roosters line up and crow for me when I come home.

Today is a good day.

Have a great weekend!
