There They Go A Walkin' Down The Street! Eek!

It is just bedlam around this farm since the sheep found out my sisters are walking in the Avon Breast Cancer Walk in Chicago! Ugh! They are on the war path because they are not being allowed to walk too.... Suffice it to say, they are not happy--they don't like to be told no! (remind you of anyone??) So to appease the masses outside, we have all decided to raise funds to support and sponsor my sisters. They will be walking an entire weekend in June, for more info on the walk itself, you can visit http://walk.avonfoundation.org/site/PageServer?pagename=chic_home_2k7 to read more about it.

We are raffling off yarn and/or fiber each month til the walk. SO, our first raffle includes five skeins of special yarn from our very own sheeps. They all want in on this and I am spinning away as fast as I can (I have suggested they learn too but....) for next month's raffle.

You can find the particulars on our site , tickets are $2 each and we hope to raise this fund to contribute from 'Friends of the Homestead Sheep'. The February raffle will end on the 28th and we will announce the winner--who will receive the special items postage paid by the sheep.

It is for a good cause and you have a chance to help many many people with any donation. AND get a chance at some fantastic yarn!

We are waiting for our web guru to connect the dots on our website so it should all be there for you later tonight. Story of my web life! ha!

We will also be adding themed items for sale and ALL proceeds of the sales and donations will be put directly into the walk fund.

This should be fun and hope you all stay tuned! Lots more in store!
