Giveaway!!!!

For those of you who are not cat or dog folks, avert your eyes.
I caught The Kraken trying to groom the dog yesterday.
He's a bit too shaggy right now.

Enjoy!

this one is my favorite (and perhaps the most disturbing):

I seriously laughed for at least 30 minutes after she stopped.


I presented at a conference and had only a small group. I was a bit bummed as I had spent a lot of energy prepping the presentation.
I comforted myself with a quick jaunt to Joann's. I got home to discover my pouch from the Pretty Little Pouch swap had arrived.

SO MUCH LOVE!!
I had bookmarked/favorited a pouch that I loved that I was sure I wouldn't get. I had even shown it to the Pirate and had ooohed and aaaaahed.
GUESS WHAT WAS WAITING FOR ME!!!!
Pouch received!
And it got EVEN better when I opened it up:
pouchie love!

I did major happy dancing (despite being sore from many hours of practice yesterday). The lovely Katie from Katie's Korner created it for me. She's got some other fabulous quilts over there. Please check them out....

Now...what you've been patiently waiting for...
I hit more than 50 followers.
I went the my LQS and picked up 3 fat quarters of Amy Butler's new LARK line.
These three lovelies can be yours.
Lark!

  19. Oh goodness, that is hilarious!! We had two dogs when I was growing up, a hound (who hated the water) and a lab (who loved it). Whenever Caleb went for a swim, Ginny lost her mind trying to dry him off. She couldn't understand why someone would get wet ON PURPOSE!

    Thanks so much for the giveaway! I'm a new follower, and I'm looking forward to future posts!
