*the giveaway is now closed*
I was hoping to get to this sooner, but life has been a little distracting lately. 😉 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!
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.
I’ve decided to hand quilt the swoon, so it will be a little bit before I’m finished. I don’t really know what I’m doing, but I’m having fun.
I’m making progress although I haven’t been able to work on it a few weeks. Soon I hope!
But enough about me…I know you guys want a chance at some of this adorable fabric!
To enter to win the fat quarter bundle you can
1. Help Distract me 😉 Leave me a comment with a funny thought, joke, or story. Anything!
2. Become a follower or let me know that you are a follower.
Good luck everyone!

Here's one that my little girl told me. Why is six afraid of seven? Because seven eight nine!!!
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.
I am a happy follower! 🙂
BTW- I agree that the polar bear fabric makes me want to grab a bottle of Coke! 🙂
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.
Now for the distraction:

I got this joke that made me laugh out loud from a friend of mine. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did :o)
While walking down the street one day a Corrupt Senator(that may be redundant) was tragically hit by a car and died.
His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.
"Welcome to heaven," says St. Peter. "Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we're not sure what to do with you."
"No problem, just let me in," says the Senator.
"Well, I'd like to, but I have orders from the higher ups. What we'll do is have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity."
"Really? I've made up my mind. I want to be in heaven," says the Senator.
"I'm sorry, but we have our rules."
And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell.
The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course.
In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him.
Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the people.
They played a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and the finest champagne.
Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly guy who is having a good time dancing and telling jokes.
They are all having such a good time that before the Senator realizes it, it is time to go.
Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises.
The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens in heaven where St. Peter is waiting for him, "Now it's time to visit heaven…”
So, 24 hours passed with the Senator joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns.
"Well, then, you've spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now choose your eternity."
The Senator reflects for a minute, then he answers: "Well, I would never have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be better off in hell."
So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell…
Now the doors of the elevator open and he's in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage.
He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags as more trash falls to the ground.
The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulders.
"I don't understand," stammers the Senator. "Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and caviar, drank champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now there's just a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable. What happened?"
The devil smiles at him and says,
"Yesterday we were campaigning,
Today, you voted.."

Now for my favorite awful joke…
What do you call a fish with no eyes?
Blogger just isn't cooperating tonight. I cannot see if comments actually post.
Here goes a sanitized joke. A ice fisherman was tired of being chased away from his fishing hole by a polar bear. So, the next day he spread peas around it on the ice. Then, when the polar bear lumbered up to take a pea, Mr. Fisherman kicked him in the ice hole… and he fished happily ever after. My late father loved this joke and I was reminded of his jokes today.
I am a follower…I have my granddaughters for the week, haven't had any adult thoughts!
My last comment didn't post so will attempt again. Funny: my grandniece Ans wanted to play with my mother today. Ans told her greatgrandma that Ans was the Mama and ggm was the child. Then, as Ans watered flowers she shook her finger and told ggm "Child, you aren't working hard enough – go stand in the corner". Later Ans told her ggm "Child, work first then play." Ans told me, "You got that right Girl" and later "Did you know that Nationwide is on your side?" So funny as Ans is only 3 yo and a mimic of her mother.

And here is my funny:
Cotton a trap, please help me!
I just think it's funny that you said you don't really know what you are doing…but your stitching looks GREAT and the blocks looks sooo pretty! I just had to giggle. Most of us feel, at one time or another, like we really don't know what we're doing 🙂
I am a follower of your blog. I am really loving this cute fabric! Would be so fun to use in some projects for my sweet little grand daughters.
After seeing your apron in the Sliced competition, I had to follow you. To the kitchen…and beyond! (My big girl would love a project out of the Brrr fabric too. Course, she's 26, but still loves her Kringlebear.)
Here's my kids' latest funny comment…
Somehow, my keys got locked in my car. The car that rarely got locked when I parked it outside, much less in the garage. My 4 year old summed it up well: "We can't go anywhere! Now we'll have to walk on the street."
