Thank you, Cat3! I try to make them a little different each year. Fun to make and that redheart wood is perfect for the occasion; doesn't need stain or any extra coloring whatsoever.

Chances to win are just slightly better than the lottery (about 45:1, compaired to about 2,000,000:1) and there's no entry fee. Compare that to the value? Lets say the lottery is for $2,000,000. That compared to a genuine one of a kind Jimbo Valentine hook?? Well ok they got me there, but still mine's free! Drop on over and enter... only a few days left!

Thank you, auntbubbels.  I'm so excited and can't wait to receive it! :clap   It really is a beautiful

piece of art and I will treasure it always.  It's not often I win anything so this was a wonderful

surprise. I'm thumbing through my patterns now with a cup of coffee, trying to decide what to make

first!

 

And lots of love to you and everyone here on the 'ville,  Happy Valentine's Day!   :manyheart

Congratulations, Benita! And thanks to everyone who entered. Got some great comments and even inspiration for Karol's (my wife) Valentine card. I made up a heart from red yarn, attached it to the outside of a card and on the inside wrote "I YARN for you". heh... She thought it was cute.
I'll have your hook in the mail today, Benita... hope it makes lots of "heartfelt" things for you.

It's here, it's here!  I just received the hook and It is absolutely

gorgeous!  This is my first wood hook and it feels fantastic.  My goal is to
own one of each size.  Thanks again Jimbo for this opportunity and sharing your
talent with us.  The wrapping was nice, also.
