This morning one of our Farmgirls told me privately, that if she was picked, she would ask to send the hat to Lisa's 90 year old Mom who is really quarantined at home. I would like to honor this request, but I wanted all of you to know that I am currently putting together a different, but just as much fun, giveaway. I will still accept all entries just as before and select a winner on April 13. This also means, if you left a comment so far not really wanting to have your name in the basket to choose, I will now put your name into the pile for selecting a winner. So, I am changing the title of this giveaway to just plain Spring giveaway #2 because it will not be another hat. All of my cotton yarns are in Fall colors and the stores are closed to be able to purchase more spring colors in time.

I really hope this change will be OK with all of you. It just seems like sending Lisa's Mom some Farmgirl Mail would be so much fun! I will write a card listing all of your names and a generic Farmgirl category to cover those who sign up after I get this out in the mail. It would be fun to let this Mom know we are all rooting for her continued safety and provide her some fun.

This giveaway is in on for all of you as originally planned, minus the hat, but with other fun surprises!

Since we had so much fun doing our Spring Giveaway, I decided we needed another one to help bring some fun here at MJF! Judith, StitchinWitch, started a thread about an Easter Bonnet and that got me to thinking about making a generic Spring hat that can be worn any day. Many of you still have cold weather and Spring has not arrived yet. This simple hat can brighten up any cloudy, windy chilly day so that you can still feel those colors of Spring but have a bit of needed warmth.

Sign up will go through April 12, and I will select a winner on April 13. If you win, please be prepared to immediately send me your mailing information so I can ship it right away.

I am excited to announce that Heather Neeper is our Giveaway #2 Winner today!! Congratulations Heather and I hope you enjoy your box of goodies!!

AND.................I created a "BeeHappy" box for Heather with the help and advisement of the Bees who come every day to my backyard to enjoy the flowers. So, one nice fat Bumble Bee asked me, "what about all those who put their names in the hat or made a nice comment? What about them?? I told him about the last giveaway Peter Rabbit project for everyone else and my Bee said..........."Wait a moment. Let me check back with you in a minute after I talk with my buddies over there at the Geraniums." Sure enough, a few moments later, back he came and buzzed out this idea. Brilliant, I said!!! The bees said they would assist with the plan too. So.......thanks to my Florida Bees, everyone who left a comment , Bee on the look out for a little bit of fun buzzing your way soon!! #BeeHappy, #BuzzFun, #BeeMJF.

Winnie, it is so pretty. I'm not signing up because I have a large Irish head and doubt it would fit me. Thanks for hosting this fun give-away and the lucky FarmGirl who wins it will be blessed by your giving spirit.

Oh Winnie, I am signing up! It is beautiful. It is still cool here in Minnesota, and will probably not totally decide to be warm spring until sometime in May. Today forecasted high is 67 degrees, so I plan to be on the deck, reading, crocheting and soaking up some sunshine. Hope you have an amazing day.

Oh Winnie that is lovely! I wish I had those skills. I will put my name in, because if I win I will give to my mom who is in lockdown at her assisted living apt.
She turns 90 May 7th, and we SO hope to be there.

Oh Winnie that is so sweet! If it is OK with you, can you send it to me? I want to give to her for her birthday if that's ok, and hope to be able to see her in person by then. If not, I'll be sure she gets it somehow. It is just that right now, we have to put stuff outside in a box, and they take it back (and this adorable hat may be more tempting to change hands than some depends or laundry detergent LOL.) She has dementia and macular, so mail is sometimes hard for her. I will definitely make sure to get a picture one way or the other. Thank you guys SOO much. Farmgirls ROCK!!!

Lisa, I am so happy that you think your Mom will love the surprise and I will send it out tomorrow to the address that you provided me in your email.!! We are all going through hard times with this pandemic but isolation is perhaps one of the hardest restrictions we must do. I hope it won't be too much longer before you can actually visit your Mom and I know she will be so happy to finally see you in person again.

Thanks everyone for supporting this idea, and I want to share with you that it was Grace, katmom, who had the wonderful thought. So lets send out a Woot-Woot to Grace and a round of Farmgirl hugs coming her way from each of us!! Thank-you Grace!!!

Lisa, when you do finally get to visit your Mom, please post a photo of the hat on her for all of us!! I know I hope and pray that one day I will be 90 as well as all of you wonderful Farmgirls here at MJF!!

Sorry for the worries Dianna! We're healthy - just having lots of issues with the dairy market due to the virus. Farm markets are crashing and things are getting scary but we're healthy and hanging in there.

I got the package today. Thanks you!! I am so excited to give to mom.
Putting it away, so I'm not tempted to open. I will let everyone know, and post a pic as soon a I get to see Mom. I talked to her today and she is confused about no family get together for Easter.
But we'll be sure to WHOOP it up as soon as we can
Thanks Everyone!
Have a Blessed Easter!
