Converging Corners Rainbow Quilt by WaterPenny

Sew Mama Sew Giveaway!

Today is a fun day in the crafty blogland – dozens of blogs are having fun giveaways today with Sew Mama Sew! I’m happy to have two samplers of my favorite brand of thread Auriful – I use the 50 wt of this for almost all my piecing (I use a beige which blends nicely). It has very little lint and gives me very few skipped stitches, etc. no matter what crazy things I am trying to sew with it.

They also have fantastic decorative weight threads – the massive 12 wt wool and cotton add a really neat touch and can be used in the sewing machine, albeit slowly and I recommend a 100/16 topstitch or a 90 metallic needle.
Aurifil Giveaway!

Lastly, it may seem like this thread is pricier, but since you get soo much of it on a spool, and you have fewer tangles that leave you pulling out and throwing away thread, it’s actually very economical.

To win (there will be two winners), just leave a comment by December 7th! You can tell a joke or a funny story if you like.

You can leave a second comment for an extra entry if you follow my blog. International entries are welcome! 

Though I haven’t blogged in a while, I’ve been sewing away on several custom orders. Here is something I made for myself. Do you ever finish a project with a long list of all the things you would change about it to make it better? I can’t look at this yet without thinking of all the ways I would improve it. As I have no intention of making another version of this one any time too soon, I think I’ll just tuck it away for a bit.

Lamps Quilt

I’m sharing it here because it is chock full of some Aurifil thread! I used the white 12wt on the lamps – it was a bit fussy like I said – it’s a huuuge thread, and I need to fix a few areas, but I do love the effect.

Lamps Quilt

Ok – to repeat – To win (there will be two winners), just leave a comment by December 7th! You can tell a joke or a funny story if you like.

    I just started using Aurifil (almost through my first spool – it lasts FOREVER!) and I love it!

    Your quilt is beautiful! The outline effect of white on black is awesome!

  2. Kathrynn

    I can’t believe it, I have totally forgotten the punch lines to all the jokes I know, performance anxiety I guess. Pick me anyway please

  3. deborah b.

    i’ve never had the pleasure of working with aurafil, but i would SO love to; i keep hearing all about how great it is! i love that there are wool AND cotton threads. i have some projects i’ve been wanting to do with wool but didn’t know what thread to use. thanks so much for the chance!!!!

    a funny story. my four-year-old was playing in the sandbox the other day, and pretending to be a cloud that rained. all of a sudden, she laid down flat on the ground. i asked her what she was doing, and she replied: ‘i am a cloud! i have to come down to the ground to refuel with rain!’

  4. Tawny

    I’m terrible at jokes. But I’d love a chance to win the thread- I’ve been curious to try it and see if it lives up to the hype 🙂

  5. Mari

    I’m not good at on the spot funny. Awhile back I did see a little cartoon with two sheep. The female sheep was knitting the fleece right off her partner, which I would totally do to my boyfriend if we were sheep with opposable thumbs!

  6. jessie hansen

    funny story, eh? I don’t feel funny, how about a happy thought? I’ve been working hard lately to get back to a decent weight. Before I got pregnant with my last I wasn’t fitting into my favorite jeans and then I got pregnant: forget it! Last week I tried them on on a whim and they actually fit! A little snug, but at least the zipper didn’t bust again. Yay!

  7. mary smith

    Why did the elephant paint his toenails red?

    So he could hide in a cherry tree.

    Have you ever seen an elephant in a cherry tree?

    Works pretty good doesn’t it?

  8. Lynnette

    Awesome giveaway! Thanks for the opportunity. And I love your quilt – the quilting is unique and the white lamps really jump out at you.

  9. Kara

    My stock of jokes is severely affected by having kids, but here’s our current favorite:
    Knock, knock
    Who’s there?
    Interrupting cow.

  10. Brenis

    Aww wish I could come up with a fun joke! We were watching Bones the other night, and it was about comedy and the different kinds. There was this one joke – “What’s up with circles? They’re pointless!” – I thought was so lame.. not even a chuckle, and there’s my husband absolutely HOWLING!!! Yah. He’s a math guy. LOL So to me that was funny! 🙂

  11. GoSewYourself

    Here’s my go-to funny story. My husband has an Indiana-Jones-like fear of snakes, so one day a few years ago I put a realistic rubber snake on the lawn mower. He found it the next time he got the mower out! He was a bit of a chicken about killing the snake with a shovel. I grabbed the shovel away from him and “killed” it myself, then flipped it over to show the obviously-fake belly. He was pretty angry at me afterward and swore that he would never…well…you know…with me again.

    We now have a daughter, so obviously he didn’t stay mad forever. 😀

  12. Melissa

    At work today a pregnant woman came into our shop with a top that said, “It’s not mine,” on it. I thought it was hilarious. I love a good sense of humor.

  13. Lisa Cox

    I’m horrible at jokes. But sorta funny story. The other day, my husband was at band practice and he’s talking to the other members of the band. One of the guys says something about money being the root of evil. My husband pulls open his jacket and he’s wearing a t-shirt that says, “If Money Is The Root Of All Evil, Then I Want To Be Very, Very Evil!” They all busted up laughing.

  14. Linda Boerner

    I would so love to win the Aurifil threads. Have been using them now for about 1-1/2 and it seems like a spool lasts forever.

    Thanks for participating in the give-a-way.

  15. Janet Frank

    Well, you asked for it…here goes…What do you get if you cross an elephant with Darth Vader? Ready?? You get an Ele-vader, of course! I told you…you asked for it! :0) And I really love Aurifil thread! Been using it for a couple of years now & its really superior! Thanks for the chance to win some more!

  16. Tabatha

    Thank you so much for NOT making this giveaway about a religious holiday! I wish I were a funny, witty person but I’m just not and when put on the spot, I just freeze. Ah well, 😀

  17. Lisa Marie

    from the Superior Threads newsletter:

    BOB’S SUPERIOR JOKE (Good Halloween Joke)
    Three friends from the local congregation were asked, “When you’re in your casket, and friends and congregation members are mourning over you, what would you like them to say?”
    Artie said, “I would like them to say that I was a wonderful husband, a fine spiritual leader, and a great family man.”
    Eugene commented, “I would like them to say that I was a wonderful teacher and a faithful servant of God who made a huge difference in people’s lives.”
    Bill said, “I’d like them to say, ‘Look, he’s moving!'”

  18. Cindy

    I’ve heard of this thread, but never tried it. Thanks for the giveaway.
    “knock knock”

    “who’s there?”

    “smell mop”

    “smell mop who?”

  19. Pat O

    I would LOVE to try Aurifil thread. It truly is peaking my interest! I will spare you in telling some of my nutsy jokes! Thanks!

  20. Kristy @ Quiet Play

    I have yet to try Aurifil but would love to! Have heard such good things about it!

    Right now my son is still getting the hang of jokes, so the most heard jokes in our house make no sense and not even remotely funny but Mr 5 thinks he’s hilarious!!!

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  21. Valerie

    I’m the worst joke teller! But one thing I think is cute is my 4year old twins call the game hide and seek-Hide and Sneak. Too cute!

  22. Lara @ Luellabella

    I haven’t tried Aurifil yet – but I have put it on my Christmas wish list. This year was our 6th wedding anniversary – we like to buy things from the traditional wedding present list and this year it was iron – my hubby (who is Italian and has only been speaking English for a few years) bless him, bought me an iron…not something made from iron – we had a good laugh.

  23. Colleen

    Dear Santa
    Please send me a big fat bank account and a slim body for Christmas. And please don’t mix them up like you did last year.
    Love, Colleen

  24. jmniffer

    I’ve never used this thread but have read great things about it. I would love to win some and give it a try. Thanks for the chance.

  25. Beth

    I have never tried aurifil thread!
    Not really a joke, but my 3 year old grandson told me Thanksgiving is boring and he wants to go trick or treating again!

  26. Kathy Davis

    Would love to have this thread in my stocking. No one ever puts anything in my stocking. I am really good too. Does this happen to anyone else?

  27. Joyce Mitchell

    Haven’t used Aurifil thread before, but would like to win some to try out.

    Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  28. Debbie Reyer

    Teacher to Little Kid outside: Put that straw down you don’t know where it’s been!
    Little Kid: Yeah I have it’s been on the ground.

    You gotta love little kids wisdom!

  29. Marilize

    Eep – I am not good at telling jokes at all. I tend to mess up the punchline and backtrack to correct pivital information so much the joke gets figured out long before the finish. I do however have a pretty big laugh, so I appreciate a good joke 🙂 Your comments had me olling quite a bit. Thank you

  30. Tas

    I have to be honest and say that I haven’t heard of Aurifil until popping in to visit your blog. Always ready to try new, recommended things though so thank you for giving me the chance to win.

    My funny story for today? My daughter started school midway through this year and has just started religions education. Today they got taught about the birth of Christ and she showed me the drawing that she had done…little baby Jesus complete with an afro do!

  31. Annie K

    “Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit; Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad. ” 🙂 I just started using Aurifil, it is fantastic thread!

  32. gina

    oh ive never had so much fun trying to get to the end of all the comments to write mine!…im laughing out loud here!!… very bad at telling jokes…i mean i get altzheimers when i have to think of one…yep…none come to mind…..take it eassssssy….

  33. JLVerde

    Funny story (courtesy of a friend and her daughter).

    Daughter came home from school and told her mother her friends didn’t like playing trivia games with her any more because she was too good at it. “I’m really good at old movies,” the daughter added. The mother was feeling a bit proud, since she liked to share old black and white classics with her children. “Yeah, really old stuff like ‘Ghostbusters’.”

  34. annette

    joke from my 3 yr old……
    knock knock mommy, who’s there, cows, cows who?, cows wear pants!!
    🙂 3 yr old humor is awesome!

  35. Margaret

    After reading some of the comments I had to get on my cell phone to view your quilt – awesome. Can’t think of any jokes – my mind just went blank

  36. Mara

    I’m not sure if this is funny or if I would even want to win (if you read this) but my daughter told me she was working when I found her cutting my spool of thread up, she did a good job of it too, if you consider the amount of little pieces of thread on the floor.

  37. Laura

    I love jokes, but when it comes around to telling them, I’m terrible at remembering them! Thanks for the giveaway!

  38. KJ

    I just bought some Aurolfil and haven’t had a chance to use it yet but have heard nothing but wonderful things about it. Thanks for the chance to win some.

    Your work is wonderful.

  39. Crunchy Con Mommy

    I’m bad at jokes, but my 3 year old provides endless funny stories. Lately we’ve been dealing with him using the word “damp” as a curse word. Somewhere he heard someone say “damn” and started saying it-and using it as a curse word when frustrated! We eventually got him to start, but then he learned the word “damp” as in moist. Now he uses that, so we are constantly trying to figure off if his toys actually need dried off, or are just making him frustrated, lol. And we have to do it without laughing, because we don’t want to encourage him!

  40. Gill

    I would like to try some Aurifil thread!
    What do you call a penguin in the desert?
    (from my cracker at our family Christmas meal today!)

  41. Sam

    Haven’t used Aurifil thread and the fact that they have wool thread is intriguing to me. Also, I’m loving your lamp quilt – especially the echo quilting!

  42. jenny

    I want to read all these jokes! Some are very funny! Alas, I have no joke, but I just bought my first spools of Aurifil no more than two hours ago. I can’t wait to try them out Thanks for this giveaway!

  43. Lindsay

    Funny (and true) story. My seven year old son was holding his urine while at school. We ad a discussion about why this was bad and here is how the dialogue went:
    me-Joshua, you can’t do that. You have to go potty during the day because if you don’t, it’s bad for your bladder.
    Joshua- what’s a bladder?
    me-it’s the thing that holds all your pee.
    Joshua- (insert long puzzled look here) ya, sometimes my bladder sticks to my leg.

    Ha, Ha, ha. I about died!!!!! Thanks for the giveaway.

  44. Heather

    I’ve seen Aurifil like 50 times in this Giveaway Day, looks like I need to try it.
    Knock Knock
    Who’s There?
    Boo Who?
    No need to cry, it’s just a joke.

  45. Amy in UK

    A joke? I’m rubbish at telling jokes but here goes: What do you call cheese that isn’t yours? .
    Nacho’cheese (get it – not your cheese)??

    I hear groaning in the peanut gallery ;0 GREAT giveaway – would love me some Aurifil 🙂

  46. Sarah Norman

    What’s brown and sticky?

    A stick!

    That used to crack me up! Such a childish sense of humour I have 🙂
    I’ve never tried Aurifil before, I only know of one place that sells it over here (UK) and they have only just started doing it in neutral piecing colours only. Would love to give it a go though 🙂

  47. Patricia L.

    This was one of my kids (now all grown) favorites from the Muppet Show long long ago.

    What do you get when you cross an elephant and a rhino?


    We still use it as a response to some questions.

  48. Jodi R

    I honestly can’t think of a joke that would be appropriate to put on the internet… need a joke book for Christmas I think

  49. Rocio H.

    I want to try this thread, keep hearing how wonderful it is. I only use Gutermann thread because it is what I can purchase close by.

  50. Deb (Two Cheeky Monkeys)

    Oooh, I’ve been wanting to try Aurifil thread! Okay, here’s a “joke” my 5 year old told (she and her sister are very keen on “knock knock” jokes).

    Knock knock.
    Who’s there?
    Mummy who?
    Mummy who is soooo cute and loveable!

    Aww…she makes my heart melt. 🙂

  51. M

    Found this on reader’s digest:
    A junior manager, a senior manager and their boss were on their way to a lunch meeting. In the taxi, they found a lamp. The boss rubbed it, and a genie appeared. ”I’ll grant you one wish each,” the genie said.

    Grabbing the lamp from his boss, the eager senior manager shouted, ”I want to be on a fast boat in the Bahamas with no worries.” And, poof, he was gone.

    The junior manager couldn’t keep quiet. He shouted, ”I want to be in California, with beautiful girls, food and cocktails.” And, poof, he was gone.

    Finally, it was the boss’s turn. ”I want those idiots back in the office after lunch.”

  52. Judy W

    Jokes – something funny? I’m the one that is still trying to absorb the joke to even get it – yes I’m that slow at jokes. Would love to try this thread, I’ve heard great things on all the blogs. Thanks for the chance.

  53. Beulah

    The mind of a 4 year old….I learned last night that our newest neighbors’ 4 year old is making plans to run away forever! Her thoughts are well planned…she knows where she is going, what she wants to take…..her plans…running away to live in my sewing studio! 🙂 A girl after my own heart!!!

  54. Stephanie Zito

    I love Aurifil threads and just started using them! I’ve just used the lighter weight (50) for piecing and quilting! I’m anxious to try the thicker weights for some detail quilting and applique! I think your quilt is gorgeous! Sorry – I can’t think of any funny jokes! Thanks for the wonderful giveaway!

  55. Adri H

    Terrible at joke telling – I always preempt the punchline, but here’s my silly attempt…
    Why was the hamburger dancing?

    He was at a meatball.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win! adriprints(at)yahoo(dot)com

  56. Katie Y.

    So I”m not very funny when put on the spot… I’ve never used Aurifil, but I would love to try it out! 🙂

  57. Barbara Orozco

    Sorry, I don’t know any jokes in English, I can make puns, but for jokes I’m lacking living a few years in an English speaking country. But I can’t tell German jokes either, so probably I’m a hopeless case. 🙂

  58. Laurie Zimmerman

    Sorry, I forgot all my good jokes, but if you go Monster Inc. Laugh ride at Diseyworld, you will laugh hear a few. 😀 Thanks for the giveaway.

  59. Mary P

    I’ve never used Aurifil thread but would love to try. Here’s a (lame) joke:
    How many flies does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

    2, but we can’t figure out how they got in there!

  60. Carey ~ Gypsy Thread

    Hi, my name is Carey, and I believe I’m becoming a thread snob. Quality thread makes SUCH a difference in the quality of sewn pieces and in the maintenance of a sewing machine. I’ve yet to try Aurifil, but I’ve read lots of great reviews. Thanks for offering this as your giveaway item!!

  61. Kessilari

    I’ve always wanted to try Aurifil, but never gotten around to wanting to pay the price for it. -grin-
    And here’s an old and cheesy one, but I always give it a good ha, at least.

    A duck walks into a bar and says to the bartender, “Hey, you got any grapes?”
    The bartender says, “Heck no! This is a bar, we don’t have grapes.”
    This happens for the next couple days, until the bartender is sick and tired of this silly duck. So when the duck shows up again, the bartender yells, “Hey duck, if you ask for grapes one more time, I’m going to nail your beak to the bar!”
    The duck says, “Hrm. Well, got any nails?” The bartender says no, it’s a bar.
    The duck says, “Well, then you got any grapes?”

  62. kriswithmany

    My 3yo, in her saddest face, said yesterday, “I really need a pony, a microwave, and a light. Then I can be happy.” It was so cute, my husband and I laughed until we cried.

  63. tusen

    Once we are asking our friend’s little daughter “what is it” questions, pointing to various objects. When somebody pointed to a glass with some red wine and asked what it was, the girl (I think she was no more than 3 years old then) replied “Quarks”.

  64. Linda L

    I really can’t think of any jokes (but really enjoyed reading all the others). Thanks for the giveaway. i love Aurifil.

  65. natski

    I’m sorry I’m no good with jokes 🙁 but I really really want to try out some aurifil after all the good things said about it lately
    hopefully i’m still in the draw

  66. Ellen M.

    When do you go on red and stop on green????
    When you are eating watermelon!
    Thanks for a chance at the Aurifil – can’t wait to try it!

  67. Christie S

    Running low on red thread today and loaded my bobbin with some old, old, old, thread that cost 18 cents. (wish I could remember what year I bought that). Anyway it was a terrible mistake. Thank goodness for seam rippers.

  68. Kate F.

    Do you watch How I Met Your Mother? My “jokes” are about as funny as Marshall’s fish list. For example, What’s Irish and stays out all night? Paddy O’Furniture. Thanks for the chance to win!

  69. Kay Lemieux

    One guy says to his friend with a terrible memory “you remember that guy who lived at the end of the road with the dog?”
    His friend replies “Yeah, yeah, it’s ah, ah, it’s a flower, it’s smells nice, it has thorns..”
    His friend interrupts “Is it a Rose?”
    “Yeah, that’s it!” He turns and yells to his wife “Rose, what is the guys name who lived at the end of the road with the dog?”
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  70. Mom C

    Had a grandkids sleepover a while back. for breakfast one requested greasy pancakes. I had to call her mother for instructions. Make the mix as suggested. Heat the pan, melt a layer of butter, spoon in batter, cook, turn over, add more butter, cook and voila, greasy pancakes. They don’t really like pancakes at their house.

  71. Judith

    I use the 50 for both piecing and quilting, but I’ve never tried the other weights. Thanks for the chance to win some. (And the joke was provided by the resident 5-year old. She has a million of them.)

    knock, knock
    who’s there
    Doris who?
    Doris locked, that’s why I’m knocking.

  72. Michelle

    I have been hearing so much about Aurofil and really want to give it a try! Thanks so much for the giveaway!

    Here’s my daughters favorite current joke(I hear it daily AT LEAST). Why is 6 afraid of 7? Because 7 ate 9. Hardy Har Har.

  73. Fran

    I am known universally as being able to ruin any joke or funny story, so I’ll spare you in that regard. I agree with you about the wonders of Aurifil – I’m a recent convert & it is amazing! I’ve only tried 50wt but am keen to try their other threads. Thanks for the lovely giveaway.

  74. Annette Tejpal

    A neutron walks into a bar. The bartender says, “for you, no charge.” That’s the best I can do. Thanks for your giveaway!

  75. Amy

    A grasshopper walks into a bar.
    The bartender says, “we’ve got a drink named after you!”
    The grasshopper says, “you’ve got a drink named ‘Steve’?!”


  76. Erin

    My nephew thinks this is the funniest:
    What’s your name: “sally”
    What color is the sky: “blue”
    What’s the opposite of down: “up”
    Sally blew up, ha ha ha ha

  77. Bree

    I haven’t had a chance to try this thread yet so my fingers are crossed for this giveaway!

  78. Leo

    well maybe just fun to me .. but I dragged my 11 year old sister outsde to have an alibi to build snowmen … my stepma really did gives us a strange look – I don’t think she really believed me that it was my sisters idea …

  79. Rachel

    I adore Aurifil!
    Well, yesterday I ate two egg and bagel sandwiches in less that 45 minutes, put the OJ in the pantry and dropped a bowl. I don’t know if its funny, but it definitely means I’m expecting!

  80. Beth T.

    I am so *not* a funny person. I think I stopped learning jokes when my brother put down his “Jokes, Riddles, and Funny Stories” book about 40 years ago, after reading every joke over and over and over, aloud, on one of those long car rides people used to take (sans individual dvd players or headphones).

  81. angelina

    i’ve never used this thread, but ive ran across it twice recently already. hmn…
    good stuff ?

    a skeleton walks into a bar and says :: ‘ ill have a beer , and a mop “.

  82. Ali M

    I see most of us are as joke deficient as I am, must be tired from all the holiday fabric shopping! Thank you for the giveaway, I think that is a pretty great quilt!

  83. Deb

    I know what you mean about things you would change – I just finished a BOM where when it was almost done I looked at 75% of the blocks and wanted to change fabrics in them to make the finished product look better balanced.

  84. Emma

    I have never tried Aurafil threads before. What do you get if you cross a kangaroo with a sheep? A wooly jumper. That possibly only works if you’re British.

  85. Melinda

    Haven’t tried Aurifil so I’d love to win. This isn’t necessarily a joke but it amazes me how our vocabulary changes on a daily basis. I overheard a mom the other day telling her almost 2 year old (who was playing a DS video game), “Did you die? Are you dead?” Excuse me? It just sounded so strange when I stopped and thought about it! The kids today have a totally different concept on so many words today!

  86. nancy

    There’s a family nearby that likes to keep stuffed toy dogs in dog houses. And we are talking about 4 or 5 dog houses . . .

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  87. Berene

    My fave stale and somewhat lame joke is: “What’s town and sticky?”
    A: a stick.
    (I said it was kinda lame. But I like it because it makes my kids groan every time I tell it)

  88. Berene

    A typo on my joke… ha ha. I guess the joke’s on me!
    Meant to be “what’s BROWN and sticky?” And you already know the punchline now so it REALLY is LAME!!

  89. Karrie Smith

    I like your blog. I don’t have a funny joke or story :/

    Thanks for the chance to win! Awesome prizes 😉

  90. Alyce Rodriguez

    Thanks for the giveaway! I’m dying to try Aurifil thread. I know a joke in Spanish… Como se dice espejo en japones? Aki toy Haha! That’s a classic. wonderlandbyalyce(at)gmail(dot)com

  91. Rebecca

    Mmmm, I’ve never used Aurofil before but it sounds (and looks) wonderful!

    I read this joke on the Amnesty International Australia website recently, and as someone who is somewhat cynical towards politicians, it made me chuckle quite a bit:

    How many bureaucrats does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
    One to assure everyone that everything possible is being done while the other screws the lightbulb into the water faucet.

    Hehe, gets me every time.

    Thanks for the opportunity! X

  92. Nicole Sender

    I would love to try Auriful thread. I’ve never bought any and sounds like I should sew with this thread.

  93. Carmen

    Two antennas met on a roof, fell in love and got married. The ceremony wasn’t much, but the reception was excellent! (Thanks for the giveaway!)

  94. vintageattempt

    thanks for the wonderful giveaway! And thanks for having people post jokes. I am sadly not a joke teller, but I loved reading some of the comments 🙂

  95. Janet

    My grandkids have taken up music this year. My granddaughter (8) wanted violin lessons and she got set up with a violin and teacher. Then I decided to give my piano to my daughter. I bought it for her and her sister to take lessons when they were young and I wasn’t using it enough to justify the space it occupied. My grandson (5) decided it was his piano and kept asking when he was going to get his piano, until we finally got it moved. He is now taking piano lessons but he also “plays” the violin while my granddaughter is doing her homework. Kids are so cute!

  96. Tricia L.

    My husband hates this joke…cause it’s the only one I tell…and it’s horrible.

    Knock Knock!
    Who’s There?
    Orange who?
    Orange you glad to see me??

  97. Tracie

    Thanks for the opportunity – I’ve wanted to try this thread!
    My sisters and I were in a shoe store once. It was a VERY tiny store in NYC and the entire back wall was a mirror to make the store look bigger. Since the place was so crowded we didn’t realize the wall was mirrored until we got to the back of the store. Well, I was looking down at the shelves, not up as I was walking, so I tried to move aside so as not to walk into the person in front of me, but they moved too – then again, and again… then I looked up from the shoes at the person… who was me – or rather my reflection in the mirror. And my sisters and a couple of customers laughing at me were reflected behind me. So I laughed too and turned around to go the other way.

    I’m terrible at saying something funny- but I just heard about someone who tried a new turkey stuffing recipe and instead of stuffing with 3 c popped popcorn she used 3 c unpopped popcorn. apparently the turkey exploded in the oven and splattered everyewhere.

    Oh man – I’m definitely not the person to be telling jokes. I’m terrible with them, but looking at some of the other comments, you got a couple of good ones.

    I purchased my first spool of aurifil thread but for some reason, I’m saving it for something special. I think I’m going to break it out tonight!
