And the CCM Felt Hats Notecard Giveaway Winner is…

First off, thank you very much to everyone who entered this CCM Felt Hats notecard giveaway… All your kind comments mean so much to me!


CCM Heirloom Handknit Hats Super Fans

After writing out the names of all the contestants, I tossed them into a hat… But not just any hat! This old brown hat boasts one of the first freehand embroidery designs I ever attempted. (Perhaps you recognize it?)


In the end, I couldn’t pick just one winner, so…


Congratulations to both Mary AND Cj…  I’ll send you each a set of notecards pronto!


CCM Felt Hats Notecard Giveaway

While cleaning my studio this Spring, I found a stash of notecards featuring some of my freehand embroidery on felt:

Set of 4 glossy notecards featuring macro images of the free hand crewel embroidery of New Hampshire fiber artist, Carrie Cahill Mulligan.

Notecards measure 4″ x 5.5″ and come with matching envelopes🙂

They’re nice cards, on heavy, glossy paper. I was surprised to realize they’re a decade old, and that I’d been saving them… For what?  What good are they to anyone buried in my desk.

(“Spend out!” I could hear Gretchen Rubin whispering in my ear…)

“I should give these away to CCM Felt Hat fans and supporters!” I immediately thought. So here we are…!

Felt Hat Sister Act: Robyn’s Story

“I wanted to treat my sister to one of Carrie’s gorgeous hats:

…and accidentally fell in love with this green/navy dragonfly hat when trying them on… So I treated myself and bought Pam her stunning pink-on-pink hat. We now are both stylish AND very warm!

During this bitter winter, my dragonfly hat has kept me warm through many hockey practices at the rink, and has garnered many compliments around town. I always looked awful in winter hats, and was amazed to see how stylish Carrie’s hats are. They are unique, and can be worn on a run or with dress clothes. I even wore mine into to a job interview with a suit (and got the job)!!

I recommend Carrie’s heirloom hats even to people on a budget; think of what we spend on groceries or oil, but this is something you invest in for yourself. I bought mine with Christmas gift money, and it has been my favorite gift.

Thanks Carrie for keeping us all warm and happy this coooold winter!”
