I know I know…do we really need sweets?…Um yes…We left one day open in our line up of 12 days in case something came up that we wanted to promote…well…nothing did …so we thought we would help another little business and sell what we think is a great must have can’t live life without item…
In our Subscription Wooly Boxes we always include two of these big caramels that are made by a local candy maker…Some of the box subscribers have stated they want to be able to buy more…cause two really aren’t enough…so…here they are..they are .45 cents each or 1lb for $10 approx 25 caramels...Order Caramels HERE.
Yesterday… It was sleep over at MiMi’s house…Jace came to trim the tree…and help me make candy…He wears his little elf hat and slippers that Sharon made him so proudly!
Only a little chocolate on the face and shirt…
It’s bath time ALWAYS here and Mimi found some new glow thing-ies for the bath… (Thanks Kristi, he loved them..now for more colors!!)

My son A.J. (Arthur Giles Potter IV) he is my heart and soul. We were married 1 month shy of 12 years when my favorite person in the world was born. When he was 6 yrs. old he gave me a reason to fight breast cancer and all it’s horrible lasting effects and setbacks. He’s now 20 in his 3rd yr. of college with a major in mechanical engineering. I’m so proud of him and the generous, caring, hardworking person he’s become.
Always think of my Grandma and her “Linzer” cookies this time of year. ❤️
My sister Carolyn, she always there to mske me laugh.
Making cookies with little ones is special, as is making them with a special sister. My young freshly graduated granddaughter left a couple of weeks ago to work at Powder King, a ski resort on the other side of our country in BC. It is heart wrenching, but everyone of us applaud her trying out her wings, and wish her the very best experience. This will be the first Christmas we will not see her open her gifts and enjoy her stocking from Santa. Love her forever
My son Philip.
Rod, my rock,my other half!
Very nice of you to share your family with us. I love the tree skirt. Do you have it in a kit
Phyllis…I do have it in a kit for a smaller tree like 18” the pattern is in Christmas Gathering book..I enlarged it…the kit for wool tree skirts are expensive so that is why I do not have one…but if you want to enlarge the pattern and order about 2 yds of wool you can!
Debi, my dear friend who recently passed away from cancer. She is with Jesus for Christmas this year and now is my guardian angel.
My sweet sister, Valerie! She’s 19 years older than me and we are as close as 2 sisters could possibly be!
My 98 year old grandma
Eboni, Monica, Nicole, Diane, Heidi, Carolyn, Pam – my mother’s caregivers – wonderful women!

My mom, my role model and my quilting buddy. Now the roles are reversed. My siblings and I are her caregivers, trying to provide for her the love and support and security that she gave all of us for most of her life.
Sheryl F. She is my dad’s cousin but has been a great friend to me, especially in the last 4 weeks. Always available to talk and pray. Life has been very stressful due to recent rotator cuff surgery and the sudden death of the mom of my 16 and 17 yr old stepkids. Sheryl has been there for me.
Reva – she inspires me, she supports my wacky ideas, we laugh until it hurts. A true friend and confidant
Wow. Thanks Lisa. My husband and I actually visited Menasha in September to visit Primitive Gatherings and to buy some caramels. We brought back 2 lbs for a friend and 2 lbs for us. Still have some. My husband and I share the caramel from the wool box each time. Will there be candy in the Christmas box too? Am hoping it arrives before Christmas, feel like a kid again waiting for Santa. Thanks for making Christmas so special this year.
Just got your book “Wool, Needle and Thread” yesterday from a local quilt shop 12 days of Christmas promotion. Absolutely love it. Will be using it as a resource for sure.
Merry Christmas and a very happy new year.
Vangie Brake, Ontario, Canada
My friends Denise and Gail are special to me. They don’t judge and we share a weird sense of humor.

Doreen, my best friend since High School.
Thank you so much for making this possible Lisa. Hope to see you again in a class soon.
My sweet is my husband Ron. He is so sweet to put up with my many many hours of stitching wool addiction.I would share the caramels with him if I could.
This is not easy! There are so many people in my life who are special to me, including the obvious choice of my husband, who I’m not going to name. My choice of all of them today, is my Uncle- Beryl Carney. I hope he knows how much he’s loved!
Thanks for asking this question- it made me stop and think about all of the wonderful people in my life at a time of year I often think of those that are no longer a part of it
Jodi my daughter. Alway there to help others. So proud of her
My husband Raymond because he supports my quilting habit by letting me plan vacations around quilt stores, doesn’t mind that my quilting supplies have spread throughout the house and never asks how much I spend on qulting.
My husband who is currently having to serve as my caregiver.
The best quilt husband ever.
My Dad, WW “Bob” Roberts, is special too me…he is my hero. He is gone now but forever with me.
Love the glow bath lights…need to find them for my grandkids.
Thanks for the chance to win!
