  2. Oh my goodness that sheep necklace is the cutest thing! I just love it! I like the others too but it’s my favorite.

  3. I like the Sheep Necklace the best. It reminds me of my pet lamb I had when I was 6. I called her Muffin.
    Thank you!

  4. Oh the sheep is my favorite by far! Thanks for the chance! Love your favorite things every year! Thanks again!

  5. Absolutely “re-maker-able” who would have thought old silverware could be so beautiful! Love the sheep but all are cleverly done! Thanks! Merry Christmas to all.

    1. Oooh, the sheep is my favorite. I have a sheep collection. Thanks for the chance to win a fabulous prize!

  6. I’ve been waiting for the 12 Days – love these sheep! You find the most adorable things! Do you ever sleep?

  7. The sheep or the maker… hard to choose favorite. I would say sheep because we love animals, my daughter worked with sheep in 4H, and the necklace is adorable! Have been waiting for needful things to start! Thank you!

  8. How do I choose a favorite? All are lovely. If it comes to one, I’ll have to choose the sheep.

  9. I love these, if I worked with wool, I would choose the sheep as my favorite. I love you 12 days. Paula in KY

  10. Finally necklaces that are appealing. Love the sheep as his wool gives us our craft. Love the thimble as it relates to our craft.

  11. Hi. My favorite is the sheep—- I just ordered it. I also love the silver thimble. Thanks for the unique items!

  12. I have so been looking forward to your wonderful 12 Days of Christmas. I order or stop at the store when I am in the area. It would be wonderful to be picked to receive one of the necklaces. I really enjoy wool quilting and have done many of your patterns, also a few in my stock pile to be done. The sheep necklace is my favorite. Enjoy the wonderful time of the year. Merry Christmas.

  13. I love the sheep!!! It’s great the way you support other small businesses. It’s something we all need to do

  14. I’m not one to wear much jewelry, but I LOVE the silver maker necklace! I’ve become a maker of foundation paper pieced designs and am learning to knit since I “retired” after my job of 17 years was eliminated due to restructuring. It has been a blessing in disguise.

  15. They are all lovely, but the sheep has got to be my favorite; full of character and looks a little sassy, like me!

    1. I like all three necklaces. Lisa, you have excellent taste! If I had to pick one, it would probably be the needle & thimble coin.

  16. 😮 these are sooo cool!!! The sheep is my fave bc I love all things repurposed! Thanks for providing these to buy!!!

  17. I love the sheep. So unique and who doesn’t love the animals who provide the wool for us to stitch!
    Just ordered it. Thanks for offering unique products by other small businesses.
    Merry Christmas!

  18. My favorite is the last necklace in silver for 2 reasons: the needle and thimble cover it all AND the chain is only 20”. At 5’, I need short things!!

  19. Even though I work in wool and am a maker of many things, I love the thimble by far the best! It brings memories of my mom and sisters sitting at the quilting frame while catching up and sharing. Family memories are always tops!

  20. Holy wooly moly! That sheep necklace takes the cake! Not only cute as a stitch, but it shows some really cool creativity and super recycling of things no longer used or needed. I could not get to ordering fast enough! I am so glad the local, artisanal folks are being supported. That is so important in this day and age.

  21. I love the silver sheep. What a great gift to give myself as a wool stitcher for Xmas. Love them Lisa!

  22. I LOVE the sheep. Perfect for wool appliqué people. Perfect for sheep people. Perfect. Cutest necklace ever…

  23. Happy Holidays Lisa! I was so excited to see your 12 days of needful things post today! It’s just fun, what can I say! I also enjoy reading others comments too. I think the sheep is adorable! I love that you support other merchants too!! Hugs, Jakey

  24. Hi. You always find the best things!!! The thimble coin is fabulous. Hoping to get to your California store again soon. Happy holidays and the best in the new year.

  25. The darling sheep necklace reminds me of the sheep that graze the alfalfa fields during the winter in Smith Valley, Nevada. The only traffic jam we ever complain about is when the sheep are on the road moving from one field to another. What a unique and lovely piece of jewelry!

  26. Do I build my items I wish to buy over the 12 day’s and then send to purchase on day 24?

    Love you Lisa. Hope your holiday is a blessed one!!!

  27. Just returned from Ireland so, of course, the sheep has to be my favorite. Thanks for doing this Lisa.

  28. Have a special place in my heart for sheep after a month long tour of New Zealand. There were sheep galore, so cool to be driving down a country rode and have a flock of sheep surrounding the car.

  29. I 💛💛💛💛the 🐑 sheep. He fits all my favorite things to make…. wool appliqué, knitting 🧶, and wool batting for quilts 😊

  30. It’s hard to choose a favorite. The two that I hope to own are the Thimble Coin and Maker. Thank you for doing 12 days of Christmas again this year !!!!! As well as everything else you have done and do throughout the year !!!!!

  31. Oh my gosh, I love that sheep. Gosh darn it, here I am already falling in love with the 12 days of Christmas. That sheep may just win.

  32. They are all great but the maker necklace is the best! It will keep me feeling creative when I wear it!

  33. I am mad for the sheep! And sad… it could have been in my wool box if Santa’s elves would have shown up to help the artisan pound them out! Bummer!

  34. All are lovely. My favorite has to be the thimble and needle coin, reminds me of a medieval guild sign.

  35. Lisa, My granddaughter loves pigs, the sheep necklace (I ordered) has a similar shape with a few changes. Would you share the name of the artist, or give her my info so I could check to see if this is something they would be willing to make?
    Thank you , Donna

  36. I love the coin ones… both silver and gold are pretty. Thank you for the giveaway and the opportunity to win.

  37. I love them all. Would like to buy one of them for my sister’s birthday, but I guess I have to decide… for her, it’s between maker and the thimble. I’d probably choose the thimle for her!
