Brr! Giveaway

*the giveaway is now closed*

I was hoping to get to this sooner, but life has been a little distracting lately. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m so excited to offer a giveaway for a fat quarter bundle of Laurie Wisbrun’s yet to be released line Brr! If you have been around here for a bit, you know that I have had to pleasure of working with her fabric line.

The first thing I made was a pair of pajamas for my daughter. She wears them all the time and loves the polar bears!

Brr! Giveaway

Ahh…snow…a thing of the past.

Then I decided to play along with Katie’s Swoon along and made a mini Swoon with four blocks. Here’s the four blocks together in a photo mosaic.

  1. Here is a joke for the first day of spring:
    Four high school boys afflicted with spring fever skipped morning classes. After lunch they reported to the teacher that they had a flat tire. Much to their relief she smiled and said, "Well, you missed a test today so take seats apart from one another and take out a piece of paper." Still smiling, she waited for them to sit down. Then she said: "First Question: Which tire was flat?"

  2. When I see this line it makes me think of Coke. Maybe it's the Polar bear and the red, also the blue hints at ice cold. I love an ice cold Coke and I love this fabric!

  3. True story from my day.

    My husband works an on call job and was out working all night. This morning I was trying to be nice and not turn on the overhead lights. Picked out my clothes, put on my shoes and off I went. I stopped at Sonic to get a drink for work and my foot itched. I looked down to scratch it and realized I was wearing two different shoes!

  4. Oh, I wish I had something funny to tell you about but nothing is coming to mind at the moment (is it almost bedtime?). One thing that struck me funny today though you kind of had to be there, was my youngest son outside playing road hockey with our neighbour boy, and my son was wearing shorts, rain boots, a winter coat, all his hockey gear, and it was raining! At least he had the boots part right!!

  5. Okay, here is a joke for you! How does Lady Gaga like her meat? Ra-Ra. Hope you got a giggle, I just heard that joke today and it gave me a chuckle. Thanks for sharing this sweet fabric! Although I'm not quite ready to think of next winter YET (we still have some snow on the ground here… ugh!).

  6. I have nothing to entertaining or distracting, I usually head on over to yahoo and catch up on the entertainment news. Tonight it was dancing with the stars and waiting on severe weather to hit us. Nothing yet and it is 11 pm.

  7. This is a friend's Facebook Status today (it is not me – really!!):
    OH.MY. Put on a tank top to clean this am. Had to run out for a few errands, so I threw on a light jacket over my tank. Decided that I surely needed….um, undergarments. So, took off jacket and put bra on OVER tank top knowing that I would keep jacket mostly zipped up. Well, got hot..forgot about bra on OUTSIDE of shirt and , yep…..unzipped jacket. Walked around for hours wearing my bra on the outside of my shirt. Yeah…..

    How's that for a distraction – LOL!!!!!!

  8. I am no good a jokes…I can never remember them! So let me just say – I love your swoon, I joined the swoon along but quickly felt "all swooned out" and I hadn't even started my own…I guess too much of a good thing is not good and I am not a crowd follower but lately there have been some really nice swoons popping up and I am starting to feel inspired again! Thank You!

  9. Our bulldog, for lack of a better term, farts so much sometimes she gets up and walks away from her own stink! Oh, my, she just did it again!

  10. A professora pergunta:Niky,quem descobriu a Amรฉrica?E o menino responde:Nรฃo fui eu. A professora telefona para a mรฃe do menino e reclama:Seu filho nรฃo estรก com atenรงรฃo nos estudos,eu perguntei quem descobriu a Amรฉrica e ele disse que nรฃo foi ele…A mรฃe diz para a professora:Se Niky disse que nรฃo foi ele,nรฃo foi mesmo.Ele nรฃo รฉ

  11. Thanks for the awesome giveaway! I am wayyy to tired to be funny or entertaining, but if you want a quick distraction, head over to my blog and help me name my 7 unnamed goldfish!

  12. This is my favourite joke at the minute, courtesy of my mother-in-law (it was near St Patrick's Day when it went around, so the victim is an Irishman, of course):

    An Irishman goes to the doctor for a checkup. The doctor looks at him and says, "Your weight is getting really out of control. How about this: for the rest of the month, eat regularly for two days, then skip the third day. Come back in four weeks, and you should have lost about five pounds by then."

    So the Irishman goes away, and comes back at the end of the month. The doctor is astounded by the sixty pounds he's lost! "Wow," he says, "this is an amazing result!"

    "Tis," says the Irishman, "but I'll tell you, I thought I was going to drop dead on that third day!"

    "Ah yes, from the hunger, you mean," sympathizes the doctor.

    "Naw, it wasn't that so much, it was just exhausting bloody skipping everywhere!"

  13. The gals were all at quilt retreat, near a main street in town. That morning, a funeral cortege went by, and one woman from the group stood reverently at the window as it passed. On the way from the church to the cemetery, it passed the window again, and again the woman stood quietly to watch it go by.

    Another woman at the retreat noticed, and said to her โ€œIโ€™m so impressed by the reverence you showed to that funeral. Itโ€™s very thoughtful of you.โ€

    The woman said to her: โ€œItโ€™s the least I can do: we were married for over 36 years!โ€

  14. When my son was little he used to tell this joke…

    Why did the tree go to the hospital?
    Because he lost his eyeball!

    You have to imagine a 4 year old telling it.
    Thanks for the giveaway I love the polar bears!!

  15. I don't know that I am very distracting, but I am distracted! I was working on a quilt today and have a messy tangle of perle cotton that I am using. I got up to go get a cup of tea and when I got back to my chair I couldn't find that perle cotton. I heard my daughter yell in the next room – she thought my little ball of tangled up thread was a spider! I guess it stuck to my pants when I walked through!

  16. I am a terrible story teller so instead I am going to direct your attention to which is full of laughable things. thanks for the chance!

  17. A distraction? Well, for distraction here in Melbourne I have Kookaburras that sit in the tree and laugh all day long. I also have a bird that has a call that sounds like the first line of the chorus to La Bamba. Now that's a song that can be distracting.
    Thanks for your blog!!

  18. Today some conversation went to having chickens in "town" as compared with having dogs. One of the comments was "I'd rather step in chicken poop than dog poop"… sorry, that's all I could think of and I'm sure you're NOT thinking about fabric now ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. Brrr! completely describes the way I'm feeling at the moment…while everyone else seems to be having unseasonably warm weather…we have unseasonably cold weather. Oh well, all this snow shoveling gives me a great work out.

  20. This is such a cute collection! I am terrible at telling jokes but great at making the best sound effects, so here goes…There I just did one for you! Can you guess what it was. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    P.S. Wishing you the best of luck in the thing that we are currently not thinking about! ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. Sadly I can't tell jokes, not in german and even not in english. Sorry!But a funny story? We live very close to a small animalpark. One day my DH comes home and tells me, there is a monkey in the garage. Of course I laugh and think he is making a joke.But no way, there was really sitting a small monkey on top of the bikes! So we called the animalpark and two men came to get the monkey back which was quite a difficult task! I think everyone who visits us has to listen to this story!

  22. Where do snowmen & snowwomen go to dance the night away? The snow ball! That one is courtesy of my 8 year old daughter ๐Ÿ™‚ I thought a winter-themed joke would be appropriate given the fabric. Thank you for the chance to win!

  23. Well, I surely enjoyed the distraction of reading all the jokes and stories people posted here today! I, however, can't come up with anything (performance anxiety, perhaps!),but I'm sure something funny will come to me in the middle of the day when it does me absolutely no good because I'll be far from my computer! However, I love the jammies you made your daughter and your swoon is perfect! Thanks for the opportunity to win some of that awesome fabric!

  24. That is beautiful fabric… and my 6yo would probably steal it as it came through the mail slot. I dont know what plans she would have for it, but I am sure they would be elaborate

  25. I worded the joke incorrectly so it wasn't as funny…

    Q: What's the different between a snow man and a snow woman?

    A: Snowballs!

    Thanks for the chance!


  26. 5 years old son of my friend asked her this week end:

    "Mom if you die before you finish cooking, will you take the stove to the heaven with you?"

    He's on a diet so I guess he was very hungry and concerned about the stove ๐Ÿ™‚

  27. my baby showered me in kisses for the first time ever a few days ago – she's kissed me before, but never like this! it was the most wonderful thing in the whole world. she was super excited and just puckered her baby lips up. they were covered in barley & breast milk LOL she gave me like a dozen kisses in a row – some closed mouth, some not so much. the moose will be 1 year on the 31st ๐Ÿ˜€

  28. Sunday after church, a Mom asked her very young daughter what the lesson was about.
    The daughter answered,
    'Don't be scared, you'll get your quilt.'
    Needless to say, the Mom was perplexed.
    Later in the day, the pastor stopped by for tea and the Mom asked him what that morning's Sunday school lesson was about.
    He said,
    'Be not afraid, thy comforter is coming.'

  29. hereยดs one of my daughters favourite jokes:

    Teacher: I hope I didn't see you looking at Fred's test paper.
    Pupil: I hope you didn't see me either!

  30. An old couple was sitting together at the breakfast table and the wife says to the husband "my bosoms still burn for you after all these years." then the husband says " That's because one's in your oatmeal and the other one is in your coffee!
    Hope this made you laugh.

  31. I just got home from work, which is rather dull (although my family seems to think I live an exotic and exciting life), so I had to think about what entertaining events have recently occured.
    It should have been more obvious: The annual Seabee Ball was earlier this month, at which I witnessed two dozen Navy Seabees in dress uniform, singing and dancing to the Village People. (Just one song, out of the entire evening, but it definitely stands out the most!)

  32. I was just folding laundry, and thought of how nice it was that my son was past the age when he would only wear his one pair of undies over and over because they were his favorite. Thank goodness for the little things!

  33. I wish I could give you a joke but I honestly can never remember the important tidbids of info when it is time to repeat it sorta defeats the whole purpose of being a joke. Instead I just need to tell you good luck in Moda's sliced competition and keep up the great work. I also loved your mini quilt that you made. Beautiful work and great ideas that you've down onto fabric. Keep it up! Thanks for the chance.

  34. I am a follower. It is too early (5:3am) for me to go looking for jokes – I can never remember them; except one made on me by my then ten year old daughter. What has four eyes and can't see – MOM – a real knee slapper at the time;^)

  35. I've been thinking about funny stories and a couple "stupid criminal" incidents come to mind. Both happened some years back, both in the small town where I live, and both went on to make national news. Not sure what that says about the place I live! In the first incident, a man was practicing his quick-draw skills in a quick-draw competition AGAINST A SNOWMAN. Things didn't go well and he shot himself in the leg. Oops. In the second incident, a guy wrapped his entire head in DUCT TAPE and went to rob a liquor store. He barely got out of the parking lot when 2 passersby tackled him. The police came and arrested him. Later that night they showed him on the news with his face all red and irritated like you might imagine it would be after pulling off duct tape — and he was proclaiming "I didn't do it, I ain't no duct tape bandit".
    Maybe it's time to move.

  36. Wh at a great giveaway! I found your blog through the Swoon Flickr group. Your blocks look great and the hand quilting pops on the grey! I am a new follower. Thanks for the chance to win.

  37. I've tried to distract you by making you sweep up all that Goddess dust. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I'm still using scraps from Laurie's collection of Tufted Tweets, but it would be so nice to have some of the new one. Thx for the chance.

  38. Hey Angela:
    What kind of birds "flock together"??????????????????????????


    I love your swoon blocks! I have the pattern, but am timid about starting…
    Get to work, now!

  39. The police officer got out of his car as the kid who was stopped for speeding rolled down his window. 'I've been waiting for you all day,' the officer said. The kid replied, Yeah, well I got here as fast as I could.' When the cop finally stopped laughing, he sent the kid on his way without a ticket.
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  40. Brr! is adorable (like your daughter in her Brr! p.j.s). Joke time….When do you go on red and stop on green???

    When you're eating watermelon!!!

  41. I am going to the midnight opening of the Hunger Games this week. I feel like a teenager…. going out in the middle of the night. Ha! It should be fun. I know that's not interesting, but it should take up some of your time ๐Ÿ™‚

  42. Why did the squirrel cross the road? To prove to the chicken it could be done.

    Good luck this week, I have been following each of your SLICED entries and they are amazing and I really *really* hope you have a relaxed and creative coast into the finish line. Your work is amazing and just continue to do what you do so well.

  43. Will it distract you enough to know that I have an apt with the dentist this morning???? Do you feel my pain???? I really hate going to the dentist, but I've neglected it long enough….it is so hard not having insurance. Uhg!

  44. I don't do jokes well, but I will distract you by telling you that yesterday at sunset my husband went to a nearby beach and took a picture of the Gulf of Mexico. Normally at sunset the water is very calm and the sun reflects off the surface like a mirror, but yesterday the sea was angry. There were large swells and each was pockmarked with little wind distortions. The sun was a dull orange that matched the mood of the waves and the clouds didn't light up with the fading sun so the sunset which is usually a bright modern patchwork was more light a picture of reproduction fabrics.

  45. I have this cat…he is a Manx (no tail) and he thinks that every single quilt I make, I make for HIM! He tries to lay on them with his beautiful long black hair and his big golden eyes staring up at me. He also loves to play with all the scraps and thread bobbins. He really is amusing, but a pain at times. ๐Ÿ™‚

  46. I am no good at jokes, I always get the punchline wrong! Heard this one on TV the other day… what did the scarf say to the hat… you go on ahead I'm going to go around… ha! I thought it was clever!! hehe

  47. I can't think of anything funny right now. My four year old granddaughter has shingles of all things so I have been reading all the comments and laughing. Love the flat tire story Mary told.

  48. A possible funny thing that I think of whenever I see this line – there should be a coke bottle print to go along with the polar bears, especially with the print you put on the shirt. That's all I can think of when I see that particular polar bear.

  49. Cute pj's…My darling grandones are talking over dinner…not great eaters….
    Granddaughter says "I don't like the taste of this chicken"
    Grandson says "Plug your nose, you won't taste it. That's what I do whenever my dinner is disgusting!" Kids can say the darnedest things…(o:

  50. I am not very good at telling jokes—sorry! BUT I am definitely a followers…you are on my sidebar– Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  51. Hm, funny anecdote or saying… ugh! i'm no good at these, but i'm following along with sliced and i'm totally excited for you! Oh I got one — I was going to participate in sliced and I started my project, was 2 days before the deadline and i went back to the instructions to check something, thats when I noticed.. "office or storage space functional" — well, my project DID NOT fit this criteria.. needless to say it was scrapped and all i could do was laugh at myself for not reading more carefully! Not funny, but hopefully distracting ๐Ÿ™‚

  52. Laura @ Needles, Pins and Baking Tins

    I'm shockingly bad at jokes…

    "How do you put an elephant in the fridge?"
    "open the door and push real hard".

    See. Told ya.

  53. After her first day at School my Gt Niece told her Mum she loved it and could she go again tomorrow….fast forward to Friday, she informed her Mum that she had learned enough now so didn't need to go anymore!!! Tee Hee I think she has a few more years to go yet…. Linda x

  54. My daughter got her pottyseat stuck on her head at babies r us. The sales guy was ready to saw it off but the sales manager and i coated her head in baby oil. We got it off but it was scary. I took a picture of course. Can't wait to show future boyfriends!

  55. My favorite joke right now is Why did the ghost go to the bar?…For the boos! Yes, I'm 5 ๐Ÿ˜€ My husband just kind of stared at me when I told him that one.

  56. I'm rather bad at jokes, but here's one I heard on the radio the other day.
    Two farmers are talking.
    One farmer says," I gotta head to the barn to check on the colt."
    Second farmer asks, "He got colic?"
    First farmer answers, "No, he's just a little horse."

    Cracks me up every time I hear it.
    I am a follower too.

  57. Q: How many kids with ADD does it take to change a lightbulb?

    A: Hey, let's ride bikes!

    Get it…? Cause they get distracted easily…?

    Yeah, it's a lot better in person.

  58. Hmmm a distraction, let's see. We went to a spring training baseball game last weekend and we got caught in a hail storm! We are from southern California. Let's just say we weren't ready… It was really funny though, people were running and laughing and screaming. Gotta love desert weather. Anyway, love the fabric. Thank you for the give away chance. Your work as always is beautiful.

  59. Forgive me for being boring. I am just no good at being funny, or even mildly entertaining, when put on the spot! I do love this fabric, though, and would love to see my little girl tromping around in similar pyjamas!! Thanks for the chance to win!

  60. Hola!!

    Pues bueno encontrรฉ una frase que me hizo gracia: "No hay nada mรกs tonto, que leer un letrero sin ningรบn mensaje".

    Espero tener suerte.


    Costa Rica

  61. You are on my blog list, so I do follow. Jokes, stories… I'll have to think hard and get back to you on that one! Thanks for the opportunity to win some great fabric!

  62. Great projects! My kids are really into knock knock jokes these days, so their favourite is:
    Knock, Knock?
    Who's there?
    Isabelle who?
    Isabelle necessary on a bicycle?

    Thanks for the chance to win. And good luck!

  63. I just love this fabric – I am in love!!!!!!!!! I can't wait for it to come out, planning already. I surely would love to win it!!!

    Well, I always get distracted or smile when I think of my 16 month old grandson. He is quite the corker. My daughter works the 11-7 shift – 12 hour shifts plus goes to nursing school full time. She was dosing on the couch and he wanted her attention. She woke up to him putting his fingers in her nose, in her mouth, in her eyes, touching her hair, in her ears and when she opened her eyes, he was there with a BIG smile and s chuckle. Of course, his dad let him do it. She has stories like that everyday. He a good little guy. He lives in WV and us in Ny but not a day goes by that she doesn't have a funny little story like this that doesn't make us smile!

    Thank you for this awesome giveaway.

  64. my 2 yr old son showed me yesterday all the vocab he was learning, in very different ways…while using his blocks, he held up the half circle and said "where did the mezza luna go?" (we do not speak italian, not that i know of) and then while doing a school bus puzzle, he was looking to place a piece with a little boy in the window and said "where does the dude go?" hmm. note to self- no more saying dude.

  65. I am a follower of your blog, forgive me if is not quite appropriate but I just found a quote and I have no idea who may have said it but it touched me:

    … People cry, not because they are weak but because they have strong for too long …

    but talking about quotes (and you weren't), I really like: "a merry heart doeth good like medicine"

    Do let's keep looking for a good reason to laugh…

    (I said this and had a little chuckle at my own expense as I am going through boxes of tissues with a rather tedious sinus infection: "I have a snoodle full of snot" Somehow that just doesn't look so funny now it is written down but at the time it sounded funny, oh well…? more like gross…TMI???)

    Congratulations …. I'm drawing to compete …

    Hugs Maria Filomena

  67. I can't post on my ipad today – it keeps freezing up on the comment box! I'm trying on the computer now. Anyways, I was helping in a kindergarten classroom yesterday. One of the little boys came over to show me his bandaid and his boo boo. He told me he had rug burn and it was really bad, he said he almosted died! He took off the bandaid to further show me. It was a very tiny spot. Goodness, I hope he never really gets hurt! I love how kids tell a story, it is so comical.

  68. I am terrible with jokes! I can never remember the punch line! Sorry…I sure hope knowing that I am sitting here struggling to think of a joke, or anything funny is a distraction of some kind anyway. It was for me for sure! Thanks for the chance to win.

  69. I WANT!!!

    Here's a funny anecdote for you…how's about you delete all the comments except for mine? That would be HILARIOUS, and I would laugh like a maniac whilst reclining upon my newly won tower of adorable polar bear fabric ๐Ÿ˜‰

  70. And you know I follow you (into the mists of Avalon…on majestic, translucent steeds.) T

    That's from Stepbrothers, by the way…still applicable ๐Ÿ˜‰

  71. I love those PJs and the matching quilt is too cute. Your daughter will love the quilt, and I imagine it will be harder to get her out of the PJs.
    And yes, I'm assuming the quilt is for your daughter, because she'll probably tell you it's hers when you're done even if you had other plans ๐Ÿ™‚

  72. I can't say as I have joke but some guy side shipped me at the airport and then I proceed a wk later to back into someone so the left side of my car is being fixed and will take three weeks! After it all I had to laugh because I have never hit someone! So a little fabric might cheer me up!nhahaha!

  73. This isn't necessarily funny, but my Mom always purchases the Macy's bear of the year at Christmas time – I would love to make her a table runner from this fabric to enhance her display! Thanks for the chance, these are too cute!

  74. We were just talking the other day about how our two year old shortens everything to a one-syllable word – blanket is bike, hockey is hock, etc. Shortly after this, he came walking up to my husband with his finger in the air, saying 'booger!' – guess he knows some two-syllable words after all ๐Ÿ™‚

  75. I have a funny story for you: The snow has been rapidly melting (and for northern WI, this is very rare!) and last Saturday, the children were playing outside. Next to our house, near their fort, there was a long dead bird with only the wings and feathers left to be seen.

    My 4 yr old son comes running into the house, "Mama! Mama!", he yelled, with his eyes sparkling and full of excitement, "There's a dead animal outside!"

    "Oh?", says I. "What type of animal is it?" (not knowing it was a bird at that time)

    "A flat one!".. out of the mouths of babes, right?

  76. Boy did I need an excuse to read through some funnies today.

    Not a joke, but I'll share my favorite Gracie Allen quote – whenever I need a good laugh I watch old George and Gracie episodes. She is the ultimate ditz! So here it is:

    "This recipe is certainly silly. It says to separate two eggs, but it doesn't say how far to separate them." — Gracie Allen

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  77. oh my, the bra story was hilarious. so, this is kinda cute and sad….my just turned three year old boy has started enthusiastically saying "I LOVE MY LIFE!" i thought this was really cute until my husband pointed out to me that my little one picked that up from hearing ME sarcastically grumble "i love my life" when my kids are driving me crazy. oh dear. bad mommy ๐Ÿ™‚

  78. I have a new puppy- a 7 week old yellow lab. Of course she is sleeping right now with her ear hanging over in her water bowl and she doesn't care one bit. Love the pajamas and the mini swoon.

  79. Nothing funny to tell….maybe amusing though! I took my borrowed (daycare) children to the park this morning. One little guy I have not had for a week & so I guess it was his first time in a swing this year. It was a 'baby' swing, he is almost two. He *would not* put his feet in the holes! He is a hefty little guy & I needed two hands to hold him up. I kept trying to lift him up & angle his feet in, he was having none of it! So here he is, standing in the swing, I'm exhasted from lifting him up for so long…lol. I asked an older kid to grab his foot & pull it through…he cried! The very second he was finally sitting, he was laughing. Laughing so hard we were all laughing! I knew he would remember what we were doing once he was in! Poor guy did not trust that I was trying to pull his feet out from under him for a good reason. If someone had been video taping, it probaby would have been hilarious!

  80. I'm stealing a funny line from my favorite show Psych as a distraction:

    "It starts with a holla! and ends with a creamsicle. And if there's time in-between- Thundercats, Ho-oh!

  81. I don't know if it would be funny, but I remember one Easter (in March) we were all set for an outdoor picnic, but it turned so cold……….. and I know that can happen up north, but we live in Central Florida ๐Ÿ˜‰ We bundled the kids up and went egg hunting anyway. Love the fabric, thanks!

  82. here's a joke for you told to me by a 4 year old (no joke!)
    knock, knock
    who's there?
    i smell mop
    i smell mop who?
    (read it out loud and you'll totally get it! hahaha)

  83. Why is an elephant large, grey, and wrinkled?

    Because if it were small, white, and round, it would be an aspirin!

    Sadly, that is my favorite joke.

  84. I subscribe to you with Google Reader! Here's my all time favorite joke (warning, it's lame…)

    Why did the pony suck on a cough drop?

    Because he was a little hoarse.

    Get it? ๐Ÿ˜€

  85. I can't tell if my last comment went through or not! Here's another joke:

    What's the fastest way to get a woman naked?

    Put her on a scale.

    (My DAD told me that one, lol.)

  86. Oh, this bear maker NEEDS the polar bear fabric, because, well, she just does ;o)

    I'm afraid I only know rude jokes, and I'm really bad at even remembering all of them, sorry!

  87. OK, my funny thought for the day: envision if you can my little white dog in the front passenger seat going paw to paw at the window with the Chick-FilA cow — it was a stitch!

  88. In the British Museum in London, I was in the Egyptian section (this was in 1980). There also was a family with a baby and a 4 or 5 year old. We had all just seen a few mummy's and they were walking on.
    The little girl had a question: if those were the mummy's, where are the daddy's?

  89. We live in a small town and I was unaware that our grocery store automatic doors… so my daughter and I are walking in the store and I am blabbering on and on, leaning forward to push the door open… just about fell on my face! My expression had my daughter in hysterics!

  90. I am a follower ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Love, love, love those pj's too cute! I am sure your daughter will have them worn out sooner than you think – they would be my favorite too!

  91. You lead, I follow.

    The only funny thing I can think of (I'm the only one who thinks it funny) is when someone asks me how I am…..I always say, I'm on the right side of the dirt….see I'm laughing already.


  92. For once I think I have a funny story to tell. My husband and I had a rare treat of shopping together last week, browsing the Gap childrens section he found a pair of jeans that looked like they should have been in the mens. But they were age 13, he decided to try them on, in fact I persuaded him for a laugh, the joke was on me though because they fit! He bought them (for ยฃ8) and has worn them this week!
    Thanks for a superb giveaway

  93. oh lord, you have a million comments on this one.

    1. i don't have any jokes, but we are apartment hunting right now. we really don't like our landlord and haven't been able to find a decent place the past couple years, so we were forced to renew the lease. this time we're really gonna move, but we still can't find a decent place. it's sort of stressing me out. we found the perfect house last weekend and put in a rental application right away; we still haven't heard anything. so now all i think about all day is checking my voicemail to see if the property manager has called me. basically i'm paranoid that we won't get this awesome perfect little house. i feel like it's our only chance to be happy renters!

    2. you know i'm a follower. ๐Ÿ™‚

  94. I used to teach high school and one day I had my floor length maxi skirt tucked into my underwear through an entire passing period! How's that for funny?

  95. Funny story – the other day, Lilli (remember her – 4 and opinionated?) wanted me to play soccer in the front yard with her. First of all, she had to get dressed for the occasion – fleece hat, fleece jacket, and fleece gloves – despite the fact that it was 80 degrees outside! Then after kicking the ball around for a while, she decided that we had to tap the ball three times with our foot and then do a silly dance. And believe me, that girl can silly dance! But nothing would do but that Nana had to silly dance too – and I love her enough that regardless of what the neighbors thought, I did my best to out-silly dance her for half an hour!

    If that doesn't distract you, check out P. and her description of Norm's immobilizer and how she gets to see him naked more often….

  96. I'm a follower ๐Ÿ™‚

    I'll share my favorite quote/saying that I found on Pinterest:

    I hate it when people see me at the Supermarket and they are like:
    "Hey what are you doing here?"
    and I'm just like:
    "Oh, you know hunting elephants."
    I laughed for days when I first found this ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the chance!!

  97. Hmmmm.. I'm tempted to attempt some kind of "why did the polar bear cross the road" joke, but I can only think of really lame punch lines like "to win a fat quarter bundle"…. so sad! When did I start telling "dad jokes"?!?!


    On the first day God created the cow. God said, "You must go to the field with the farmer all day long, suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer I will give you a life span of sixty years."

    The cow said, "That's a kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. Let me have twenty years and I'll give back the other forty."

    And God agreed.

    On the second day, God created the dog. God said, "Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. I will give you a life span of twenty years."

    The dog said, "That's too long to be barking. Give me ten years and I'll give back the other ten."

    So, God agreed.

    On the third day God created the monkey. God said, "Entertain people, do monkey tricks, make them laugh. I'll give you a twenty year life span."

    Monkey said "Monkey tricks for twenty years? I don't think so. Dog gave you back ten, so that's what I'll do too, okay?"

    And God agreed again.

    On the fourth day God created man. God said, "Eat, sleep, play, have sex, enjoy. Do nothing, just enjoy, enjoy. I'll give you twenty years."

    Man said, "What? Only twenty years? No way man. Tell you what, I'll take my twenty, and the forty the cow gave back, and the ten the dog gave back and the ten the monkey gave back. That makes eighty, okay?"

    "Okay," said God. "You've got a deal."

    SO: That is why for the first twenty years we eat, sleep, play, have sex, enjoy, and do nothing; for the next forty years we slave in the sun to support our family; for the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain our grandchildren; and for the last ten years we sit in front of the house and bark at everybody.

  99. We often get parcels (of fabric) in the mail here, or things we have ordered off ebay, and so the kids often hear about us waiting for deliveries to show up. Well, today I went for my hospital tour because I am 35 weeks pregnant, and when I came home I was saying it will be about a month before the baby is delivered. My 5 year old asked, "Is the baby coming in the mail, Mom?" to which my husband responded, "Mom only wishes, son."

  100. Milk and eggs

    This is a story which is perfectly logical to all males:

    A wife asks her husband, "Could you please go to the store for me and buy a
    carton of milk, and if they have eggs, get 6."

    A short time later the husband comes back with 6 cartons of milk. The wife
    asks him, "Why did you buy 6 cartons of milk?"

    He replied, "They had eggs."

  101. I have no funny stories. My life is super boring. My husband on the other hand went to a meeting at church last week with his shirt on wrong side out. I usually check him but he left before I got home. He said nothing like standing in front of twenty men praying and speaking only to sit down and realize your shirt is on wrong.

  102. Funny story, My youngest daughter turned 2 last week. We took her to breakfast for her birthday and she began to play with an older gentleman in the booth across from us. When he got up to leave he came to bid us farewells. He looked at my daughter and asked, " Where did your mommy and daddy get such a cute little girl like you?" she clearly, politely but very seriously looked at him and said "At the target!" We all cracked up, gotta love kids!

  103. I have a two year old, and trying to teach better manners…so I grunt (instead of swearing, even if some of my swears are rather old-fashioned, the more frustrated I get, the bluer they get…). So now she grunts with frustration when something doesn't fit together! I remember when you made those, they're adorable!

    You've been busy lately, I know.

  104. I follow you!

    This is my favorite.
    A salesman was driving down a farm road when he say a 4-legged chicken running alongside his car. Curious, he turned down the driveway and followed the chicken into the farmyard.

    He said to the farmer, "That chicken is amazing, did you breed him?"
    "Well", the farmer said, "I did. You see, my wife and I, and our 2 sons, all like dark meat, so we wanted to breed chickens that would feed us all."
    "Wow", said the salesman, "how do they taste?"
    "I don't know", said the farmer, "I haven't been able to catch one yet."

  105. Ok, it's late and I'm a terrible joke teller anyway, but I thought this story was cute. My kids (I have 3preschoolers) for some reason started calling my dad -who is normally "Pop" to them- get this, Poppy Ding. My son told me today , " I like calling Pop Poppy Ding because sometimes he sounds like a cuckoo clock!". My dad is a new testament theologian and has never sounded like a cuckoo clock! And how does my kid even know what that sounds like?!

  106. I just signed up officially. I've been following your blog for several months now. As for a funny thought? Polar bears are my absolute fav endangered species. But I wouldn't want to cuddle a real one! Now with polars in print – I can!

  107. This joke is pretty silly but I read it the other day and so it's the only one I can think of:

    What Did the Bolt of Fabric Tell His Daughter When She Threatened to Run Away to India?

    "Go'll be sari."

  108. My favourite joke – told to me by one of my grade 12 students years ago. This student was always trying to tell me "dirty" jokes and I'd always have to stop him. One day he promised me the joke was clean. And it was:
    Why does a chicken coop only have 2 doors?
    Because if it had 4 doors, it would be a chicken sedan!


  109. My children tell me that I have no ability to tell jokes. They might be right, but It would be hard to prove since I can never remember any to tell.

  110. My friend Dawn told us at our Sip N Stitch get together last week that her husband had told her that he thinks they are soul mates. Dawn is in her sixties, this is her second marriage & Rick had to ask for 10 years before she FINALLY said yes. They have been married for about 12 or 13 years now. Far from finding this information romantic, she stated that it scared the **** out of her-she doesn't want to be his best friend/soul-mate, she's fine just being his wife. I came home & asked my husband if I was his soul-mate. The response was "If you want me to be." We have been teasing Dawn ever since. I am a follower by the way. Love the swoon blocks, esp. the one using Laurie's chairs!

  111. Yummy! Loving that fabric bundle! The pjs you made sre just adorable! Ok, now for some kid friendly jokes.

  112. Brrrr! We woke up to it snowing again today! I think the weather is mixed up?!?!? I love this fabric! And your quilt looks fabulous! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Here's my joke:
    A 71 year old lady goes to the doctor. All of a sudden she starts shreiking and hollering and running down the hallway. An older doctor takes her into his office to calm her down and find out the problem. Then he confronts the doctor that she was there to see. He says to the younger doctor "How can you tell a 71 year mother to 7 and grandmother of 12 that she is pregnant?" And the younger doctor says "Well, she doesn't have the hickups anymore does she?"

  113. I'm a follower via email. Here are two more jokes.

    Knock Knock
    Who's there?
    Ken who?
    Ken I come in? It's cold out here.

    Knock Knock
    Who's there?
    Acid who?
    Acid sit down and be quiet please.

    Thanks again for a generous giveaway and a chance to win. Hope your having a better day.


  114. So today I brought my son a chocolate iced doughnut with sprinkles for him when I picked him from preschool. I have no idea why i thougth that was a good idea, but I did it anyway. He got so excited when he saw it. Then he squealed, 'I LOVE SPRINKLE BAGELS!!!' it was adorable. Ok, that was my funny story for the day! I've been in love with this fabric for a while!!!

  115. A psychiatrist was conducting a group therapy session with four young mothers and their small children. "You all have obsessions," he observed.

    To the first mother, Mary, he said, "You are obsessed with eating. You've even named your daughter Candy."

    He turned to the second Mom, Ann: "Your obsession is with money. Again, it manifests itself in your child's name, Penny."

    He turned to the third Mom, Joyce: "Your obsession is alcohol. This too shows itself in your child's name, Brandy."

    At this point, the fourth mother, Kathy, quietly got up, took her little boy by the hand, and whispered, "Come on, Dick, this guy has no idea what he's talking about . Let's pick up Peter and Willy from school and go get dinner.โ€

  116. This may be a groaner, but I thought it was really adorable. When we were kids, my little brother (then 5) came up with a joke all on his own; What do you get when you cross a cat and a dog? A fight!

  117. Ok, this one is courtesy of my three year old. Why did the chicken cross the road? To get to the hamburger store! (followed by uncontrollable giggling by my little man) At least he gets it!

  118. Ah. Not a joke but one of those things kids say. In a conversation with my 3 year old- Me: We are going to visit Auntie Sara. She has a pool. Do you remember her? Do you remember the pool? J(acts like he totally remembers): Does she fit in it? Ba-dum.

  119. I am a follower and I have to admit your swoon quilt with this fabric is my favorite, and I might just have to make one when this fantastic line is released. Thanks for the drool worthy giveaway.

  120. Ok, so this duck walks into a grocery store, walks right up to the manager and asks "got any duck food?" *imagine aflac duck voice here*
    The manager says "NO and we DO NOT serve your kind here get out!" so out the duck goes.
    The next day the same duck walks into the same grocery store up to the same manager and asks "Got any duck food?"
    The manager say "NO as I TOLD you yesterday we do not serve your kind here. If you some back I'm going to nail your feet to the floor!" So out the duck goes again.
    The next day the very same duck walks into the very same grocery store and up to the very same manager and asks the manager "Got any nails?"
    The manager answers with a confused "no"…
    "Got and duck food?!"

    That is my favorite joke even if it is kinda long. Thanks for the fantastic giveaway.
