Who’s Who Challenge Continues …

We have a winner .. .and we are a couple of days behind.  How did that happen?  No Idea .. except there is simply never enough time in the day!  We’ve been adding lots and lots of what we call “Classic Fabrics” .. fabrics from some of your favorite collections that have been around for a long time, but have been hidden away in a dark closet for a special time … and that is now!   So, the winner of the Challenge #3 is …. Jenna.  Congratulations!   Keep up the great work!
  Will the fabrics in her booth give her away?

So, now we move on to Challenge #4.  Before we do, here is the ‘hidden’ promotion code … save 10% on your entire Homespun Hearth Order – you must use code BBH784   … this code is valid through Saturday 6/13 – midnight EST – excludes ‘ZM’ items – and remember, free shipping with orders over $150, we ship in 24 hours, and, most importantly, you will be rewarded with a wonderful shopping experience.    Okay – back to the challenge.  First, we want to take a moment to thank you for your donations toward the Avon Walk  … and good luck winning the quilt!  Avon is having a problem with our website, so hopefully it will reflect the correct donations (approx $6,000!), in the next few days.   In the mean time, you have your work cut out for you… again …. So, who is this? Don’t you just love this booth?   Don’t you love all of those quilts?

Will the fabrics in her booth give her away?

Before I do the Who’s Who Challenge,c I wanted to get this blog out … We are SOOO excited! One thing we did at Quilt Market is re-stock our wool department … and it is going to explode! This is where The Silver Needle Wool & Naked Sheep Society was born! We also designed 5 more wool programs that, if you are even the tiniest bit of a wool enthusiast, you are going to love it! I’m not going to elaborate here. OK – so I’ll elaborate some. Stash programs, Auto-ship programs, Christmas programs … woops … that’s it. Check it out!

Who’s Who Challenge #3

Good Morning Everybody!   Today we had the most beautiful sunrise here in Colorado.  I woke up early, and realized that the sun was creeping up at 4:45am … that’s just not right!  But, I did get up anyway – it’s amazing how much a person can look at when there is peace and quiet!

Okay, before I go on to the Who’s Who Challenge, I want to let you know that you really need to check back here a bit later today … especially of you love wool and/or fabric!

So, we have a winner … and more people joining the contest!  Today’s winner of a Free yard of  Breast Cancer fabric is Jenna!  Great job Jenna — the answer was “Joined at the Hip”.   We appreciate all of your answers … right or not-so-right!

And to remind all of you, we are keeping track of all winning answers, and the 3 people with the most correct answers receive a Breast Cancer Fat Quarter Bundle and a Homespun Hearth Shopping Spree!

Everybody I know that has heard it has to grab a tissue to wipe their laughter tears.

One of these days we may have a view of a fox, deer, and oh …. that idea called ‘Sunshine’ ..??

Moving on … a quick Monday Madness special. We are in the middle of our Sidewalk Sale right now, and for you bloggers, take an additional 20% off any of a Thimbleberries 6″ Roll. Just enter code VWBL04 to receive your discount. Click here to order.

Look close .. you may see Mrs. Nuthatch looking for the all clear!

I’m not so sure about the weekends around here … it seems that lateley we have been ‘deprived’ of some Spring weather. But, the birdies here (Mr. & Mrs. Nuthatch) didn’t have to wait long to get a jump on their nest building. Moments after this picture was taken this morning, the sun shined brightly on their birdhouse, and the snow fell right off in one big clump! Within the next few hours, the fields will be showing grass and pine needles for them to carry in for their nest. And, if they are lucky, they may even find some batting laying around. It’s only a matter of a few weeks, and we will be hearing some faint chirping from their home!

So, while we are in the midst of our Fab-Bake Sale, we thought we could still add a bit more of an enticement for our blog readers. For the entire day today, you can receive an additional 10% off on any kit that you order today! This special ends at midnight tonight, so be sure to get yours soon. The code for this extra discount is: MM9584 Click Here to see the Kits

Have a wonderful week!
Teresa and the Birdies!
