You are right--I have so much wool, it wouldn't be right to enter, so I'll just leave you a comment to let you know I stopped by. Lovely wool though!

Michelle said...

1. Oh, yeah! I love wool and LOVE this designer. In fact she lives near me in the Portland metro area and has a WONDERFUL display at my favorite quilt shop - Holly Hill- in West Linn, OR. I have been looking at this pattern but have not purchased it.

2. I am a follower and would love to be entered into the drawing.

3. I am going to try to figure out how to post your link in my blog, but I will blog about it as well.

4. I am excited to say that I have signed up for this artist, Debby Busby's class at the quilt shop as well...she has a monthly "Wooly Wednesday" class and I am finally going to take it!

Thanks!
