New Falloween Treasures From A Wonderful Friend

Good Evening Friends, Tonight I would like to share with you some wonderful treasures that I was so lucky and blessed to have won from a wonderful friend Valerie from http://thewoodenacorn.blogspot.com/ "The Wooden Acorn". Valerie was celebrating having finally settle in her new home after a very long journey of moving and decided to share her joy with us all, by having a Falloween Giveaway.  She had four very generous give aways. One to be given away each week for the month of  August with a "Grand Surprise" box to be given to one lucky person at the end of the month just for signing up for her give away through the month. Each week Valerie very generously added to the surprise box and at the end of the month all the names were put into a drawing and she picked out one lucky winner.........can you guess who that winner happened to be? Yeap you guessed it.....Moi!  :)
Oh my gosh gals, when I went to her blog and seen my face posted (yes she posted the picture from my bio, which made it so nice as one could then connect a face to the name) on her site I could not believe I had been chosen as the lucky winner.....I even second guessed myself and had to read the whole entire post to make sure the person I was looking at was really me! heheh OOooooh and the treasures she added to the surprise box were every crafter's dream come true! Well, instead of me telling you, why don't I  just show you...hhehe
Look at all the wool would ya! I told you it was a crafters dream come true! All wonderful warm color's of fall. And if the wool wasn't enough, she included three beautiful spools of Valdani thread all warm fall color's also! Then there was a spool of my favorite wool thread. Gals if you do penny rugs this thread it fantastic for doing so. It compliments all colors of wool and yet stands out and gives your piece a more prim look. Valerie does carry it in her ESTY shop, which can be found here http://www.etsy.com/shop/PrimFolkArtShop?ref=em

Valerie also included this wonderful Falloween book, loaded with tons of beautiful fall projects and patterns

Penny rugs, pumpkins, Wool pillows.

 A wonderful little squirrel pattern all made from wool. Punch needle pattern and many, many more other patterns too. This book is just awesome friends, and Is already one of my favorite books for fall projects...So many great project's that I want to do! If this wasn't enough, Valerie also included in my little box of treasure's this wonderful Halloween note pad too!

If you have not have the chance to visit with Valerie at the Wooden Acorn http://thewoodenacorn.blogspot.com/yet, you are really missing out on meeting such a special gal! Valerie is just the sweetest and always makes you feel so welcome! Gals, if you have a few free moments stop by and say hi......I know she would love for your visit! She also has a wonderful ESTY shophttp://www.etsy.com/shop/PrimFolkArtShop?ref=em which I mentioned above. It is chocked full of wonderful patterns from needle punch, rug hooking, stitchery, pennies, to name just a few. She will also now  be carrying notions, vintage finds, Valdani  thread sets, both for punch needle and stitchery and many, many more great items.  I have been shopping with Valerie for a few years now, and her shop is one of my favorite places to shop! Not only does she have an excellent assortment of crafting items....but the service is impeccable and I can always count on receiving my items within a few days! 
I just LOVE all my new treasure's and can not thank Valerie enough for everything she has so very generously gifted me......and for the wonderful service she has given me by making my shopping experience with her such a PLEASURE!
