Lucky me!

I got some wonderful news yesterday morning.  I won a fabulous giveaway on Susan Anderson's blog!  I was so excited because I never, ever, ever win anything.  So, I've decided my good fortune is going to be someone else's good fortune, too.  I already own all of Susan's books because I have ordered all of them before they ever are published.  Susan's books are beautiful to look at and always have the cutest patterns.  They are classics and ones I go to over and over again.  Anyway ....... the good news for everyone else is that I'm going to share.  As soon as I can get myself together (after my open studio/farm weekend),  I'm going to plan a giveaway.  So, stay tuned and we'll see how much joy I can spread around.

The time to celebrate is almost here!  This Saturday (that's tomorrow!),  from 11 am to 4 pm,  we are having a Yarn Harvest Celebration for our 2012 Sheep Dreams Home Grown - Fresh from the Farm Yarn and Roving.  It looks as though some perfect Kentucky weather is going to be smiling on Tanglewood Farm because it's predicted to be 74 degrees and sunny.  If you'd like to come out and meet our production team (the sheep girls and alpaca boys),  we'll be here to greet you with fresh apple cider from our local Boyd's Orchard and homemade cookies (from me).  If google maps doesn't make it clear enough,  please feel free to email me  or call 859-229-3195 and I'll try to give you clearer instructions.  (Please note that the operative word here is try!)  And, when you get here,  don't be afraid of the farm road.  When you turn off the main road (at the Tanglewood Farm sign) you'll go down a hill,  across a creek and up a hill on the other side.  I would say all but the lowest slung sports car will have no problems with any of it.

*If you're a spinner, feel free to bring your wheel and we'll set up some chairs out under the trees, where you can spin in the fresh air.  If you have a knitting project, bring it along and we can have our own "knit in public day"!


  1. Oh, I am SO glad you are winning some yarn as well as those books you already own! (And lucky you for living in that beautiful piece of Eden pictured in your header!) I remember how thrilled I was to win one of your giveaways before; the Alice Starmore book is my favorite knitting eye candy. :-)

    Have fun tomorrow; wish I could be there.... Hug Deb W for me, and Sara, if she comes!

  2. I can't even begin to express how much I would love to come visit those precious faces in that beautiful setting, but alas I must work. :(

  3. Congratulations on your big win!! I wish I could come over and see all the production crew today but, alas, Chicago is a little too far. What a beautiful place you have.

  4. Oh geez! If only I had read your blog yesterday instead of tonight!. I would so have loved to see your farm and family of sheep. I hope you had a nice turnout. WhooooHoooo !!! on the winning the prize!!
