Thread giveaway..and need some advice...

 While going through my craft room and moving it from one end of the house to another I began throwing thread in a box that I know I will not use.  Theses are all size 10 thread. I am going to give them away.  I am keeping it really simple..If you want them simply leave me a post and a way to contact you if you are the winner.  I would like to have them in the mail next Monday.  So if I make the drawing for Sunday sometime..get back to me quickly and I can get the box in the mail.
Look!! New Chair just for me!!  I needed a better chair.  My back was hurting and I was down right uncomfortable..so I went chair shopping..I was so happy to have found this..It is made in the USA..all of it....right here in Southern Indiana..I try really hard to buy products that are made in the USA..it is hard because of the price..you know we can't compete with China..anyway I was happy to have found a manufacturer and a store that only deals with made in USA..I found you have to stay away from the chain stores and bigger stores..so now shopping mom and pop type of stores when at all possible..Anyway..the chair is a glider,swivel rocker..had to put some non skid stuff on the bottom because it would slide across the floor.  Anyway it is very comfortable..I am liking it.  Ok now I have a question for all you German Shephard people (dog people too)  I just had Buddy groomed last weekend and he stinks again..it is not a poop smell..just an odor.  Is there anything I can do to keep him from stinking..it is driving me crazy.  He doesn't do the doggy poop roll or anything..because we watch him when he goes out.  He just has a funk about him..help me!!  Blessings everyone..

Hi Vikki, I have a question, have you had Buddy's anal gland sac's expelled? if they are full, it can cause him to have a bad odor that won't go away...also smell his ears, sometimes if they have an ear infection or water trapped in them it can also cause a yucky odor that also won't go away. lastly check all around his body for any lumps or scratches he might have that could be infected, sometimes they give off a really bad odor too. My Jade had an ear infection and she smelled so nasty we thought it was her skin...they gave us some meds for her and the ear cleared up and so did the smell. Zorbex seems like a safe product but I never used it before... Don't put me in the giveaway, I wouldn't know what to do with all that thread...LOL! Have a great day! Hugs Jennifer

I forgot, I have used Apple cider vinegar, it's safe and natural it has many uses for a dog but it also controls odor and it's not that expensive... Here's a website on it http://www.wikihow.com/Use-Apple-Cider-Vinegar-for-Dogs

Hi Vikki! I would love to enter the giveaway. I have just recently gotten into thread crochet and this would definitely help fuel the addiction :) shannonaufman at gmail.com

I have two basset hounds who used to be quite smelly. We started feeding them grain-free food, had their anal glands expressed and clean their ears weekly. I don't know which one worked best, but they are mostly smell-free now! I buy their food at Costco, they eat salmon and sweet potato or the turkey food (it's costco brand and not much more expensive than other dog foods). -Shannon

I'd love to enter the giveaway please. I followed a link to your site because I was admiring your gorgeous doily on Craftsy (Between Meal Centerpiece). It is absolutely gorgeous!! I'm disabled and waiting to have a spinal cord stimulator implanted soon. This would be such a blessing to be able to have thread to crochet with while recovering. What a gorgeous chair you've purchased. It looks so comfy!! Hope you're able to find the problem with your dog's odor soon. Would love to give your thread a new home. God Bless You!! My email addy is jennycrochet@gmail.com

Wow! Beautiful thread! Thank you for entering me in the giveaway. I would have a great time making things with all that!

Regarding your doggie, I don't know what you could do about that. I do have dogs but they are the type of breeds that don't have that type of hair & I think that makes a difference. Hope you find something to help.

Blessings - Julie

Hi Vikki! Thanks for visiting me...yes, I sure do find them don't I...LOL! I already removed the blogs that I visited that ticked me off. I also lost two followers that didn't agree with my views...needless to say I didn't lose any sleep over it. AH yes, life does go on after voting day...LOL! I won't be on the blog much after today, I have a cat going for surgery and I have to get some stuff done before my hubby goes on Thanksgiving vacation but I hope to be back to do a post before Thanksgiving. Have a great day! Hugs Jennifer
