ooo nice giveaways! I am putting my hand up for the remnant stash as I am a skirt girl and never wear pants. Which is a crying shame cos if I did wear pants your fisherman pants would be at the top of my list!

Leonie Guld said...

Hey M* maybe you had better keep watching over the coming months, there might just be a skirt release!!

Leslie said...

I love this giveaway. I'm not funny but my daughter is, at least to me. She always categorizes her tiredness. She's not "two" tired, she's only "one" tired. Her tiredness level dictates if she can pick up or not.

Something funny... up until recently we've been feeding our younger kitten by the refrigerator, we have kept her dish on top of it, to avoid carousing dogs from eating her food at any given moment when we aren't looking. When she's feeling like she wants it, she meows, of course, but if she thinks we're not getting it for her, she stands right next to the fridge, meows, and then licks the fridge. It cracks me up every time!

This story is from my 18 month old son:

I would like to tell you that I like counting. I think I've learnt it because before I do lots of different things (like going down the slide, or going in my high chair or playing games) mum says "one, two, three!". I like doing this too except I only say "two, free." I can never remember "one". Mum tries to get me to say it. Our conversation goes like this:

Mum: One, Two, Three
Me: Two, Free
Mum: One, Two, Three
Me: Two, Free
Mum: ONE, Two, Three
Me: Two, Free
Mum: Say One
Me: Two
Mum: Say ONE
Me: Two
Mum: Say Two
Me: Free

I think mum finds this funny but frustrating.

You have a wonderful blog! Something funny: growing up I was very close to my dad. But, he used to LOVE trying to embarrass me! Whenever we'd go out grocery shopping he would roam the aisles calling out embarrassing names like "soooooie!" (pig call) and "gertrude!" It used to drive me nuts but now that I'm grown up and married I totally miss it!

angelique said...

Hi just got sent over here by your Hyena sister. I would love an entry into your bits and bobs giveaway. Theres nothing like picking up a bit of fabric from somebody elses stash.

the amazing jelly fish said...

funny true story... embarrasing just a bit
Husband is large man, I am a smallish but tall woman (i kinda look like sandra bullock but that is not the point of this story). So wayyyyy back when we were first married, and we were umm.. shall we say "tickling" and playing around in zee bedroom, somehow we started saying "rarr" to each other (roar but emphasis on the A) anyways, he pinned me with his knee in my bicept... did i mention his ham's are the size of my waist? anyways i am yelling "my-arm" but it sounds like "rarr" to him so he calls back "RArrrr" . I say again "my-arm",by this point he thinks he is quite the studdd and is calling back again "RAAARRRR" and after the 3rd round of his misunderstanding my words i scream "MYYY {BREATH} ARM!!!!!!"

finally he turns around and sees what he has done and as quickly as he can he gets off. Very appologetic "sorry dear" as he rubs my arm.
We were laughing about this just the other day.. 13 years ago it happened. still makes us laugh so hard we tear up.

great blog so far by the way. Love the creativity in your family, and feel your pain with family going into a home.

Leonie Guld said...

thats what I'm after!!!! Mum and I walked in to a nursing home the other day excited that nan was getting a new home and the weight of looking after her is finally off our shoulders. We were so oblivious in our own joy and gayety that, while we cheerfully chatted away to the residents, we forgot that one of their friends had just DIED!!!!!!!!! Which enabled the bed to be available to nan!!! Well we were a bit quieter yesterday when we dropped her off!!! POINT TO ANY ONE WHO IS PUTTING THEIR OLDIES IN A HOME, EMPATHY PEOPLE, EMPATHY!!!!!

Lucy Bowler said...

Subtle, Leonie, very subtle! I bet you're not the first to suffer from the nursing home bed joy, only to quietly realise later the reason for its availability! I frequently get around with both feet in my mouth which isn't as evident on my blog where I can edit my inadequacies! Funny, well all sorts of utterances from Tom at the moment. Cross this morning, sent to his room and he yells out 'I'm going to... what's a swear word?' obviously about to say one if he could think of one. He calls the local Lions Park the 'Lionsless Park' as there aren't any there... very literal, my boy! And his slightly subversive sense of humour - I ask him to write 'Please be quiet' and he writes 'NOISY'!!

kiko said...

The fabric is lovely!
A funny story....hm here is one

My 4 yr old was learning about plants and flowers in school. The teacher asked "what 3 things do plants need to grow?" Answers: water, sun, and air. My daughter piped up and said, "Patience!"

My girl had me in stitches last year when a friend sitting at the far end of the table asked to see her ballet positions. Quick as a quick thing my then nine y.o. whipped off her shoes and held them at shoulder height and took them through the feet positions of ballet. Clever and speedy I think this kid is set to take over the world!

stitchinpenny said...

I love the bag. I went to the tutorial and tried to copy it, but no success so I would love to win this giveaway.

Natalie said...

Hi there! I flew over here from your sister's blog and now I'm adding your blog to my feeder too! Love it! Funny (awkward story): I used to work as a receptionist in a medium sized accounting firm and one of the things I liked to do was send out birthday cards for everybody to sign. They went out with some regularity and people got used to seeing a folder being passed around. One time, I sent out a sympathy card for someone's father who had passed away. One of the partners was on his way out the door, saw the card folder and quickly scrawled:"Cheers to another one! With many more to come!"

Kindershop said...

Hmm, something funny?! How about this: Tom Brady is going to be a Dad, AGAIN!
Thanks for the chance to win.

Emily said...

My favourite joke in the whole world is one my cousin told me when she was 5: "What did the zero say to the eight?"... "NICE BELT!"

Bethany said...

So a while back I was talking to my 4yo about her Sunday School lesson which was about Jesus loving us. She told me that Jesus saved his friends when they were out in the stormy sea. I asked her why Jesus saved them, expecting to get, "because he loves them." Instead I got, "'Cuz Jesus gots the power!"

Great blog by the way!

Brooke said...

Well, I made someone on another blog laugh by telling them I have three cats and none of them were currently wearing underwear. So maybe that will work here too. :-)

skippedydoodah said...

Oh I adore your blog and all your fantastic creations (enough sucking-up?), you're just so creative and awesome (enough now?) and I wish I had a smidgeon of the talent you possess (now?)... Plus your kids are the cutest things I've ever seen and you must be an incredible mother to make them so happy (seriously - now ;) ?)

I meant that by the way... But here's something funny - me and a little girl I look after were in the garden yesterday looking for bugs and minibeasties and seeing how many different types we could find. We thought we'd come to a bit of a stalemate when she came running over to me, flushed and breathless shouting "I've found one! I've found one!"

"Found what?" I asked.

"A WIGHEAD!!!!" she positively screamed.

When I'd recovered from the hysterics I found out she'd found a little earwig in my Rosemary bush. Bless.

Skip (ooh pick me pick me pick me pleeeeease!)x

The Sander Family said...

I am having a really hard time thinking of something funny that isn't bathroom related! We have a baby in diapers and a neighbor who is potty training and ends up using the backyard for his toilet, so we get lots of laughs from seeing him with his pants around his ankles, but it isn't so appropriate here! I love the fabric stash though, especially the last print with the black panther. I hope I win even though I am not so funny!

Wendymoon said...

I really wish I was a funnier person. Because I want this fabric. How about this joke that was my favorite when I was a kid?

-Why did the monkey fall out of the tree?
-He was dead.

Well, I tried. If you could see me, I would be making a really funny face for you! :-)

Leigh said...

Last night I couldn't find my 4yo daughter in the house, and when she's quiet it usually means she is up to something. I found her sitting on the back porch in her underpants, with a baseball cap on her head and her backpack on. She was eating yogurt and said she was watching a football game- while staring into our empty back yard! She is a strange girl :)

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

My toddler daughter was sitting in her high chair next to her grandpa (but across the table from me) when she was learning how to drink from a cup. All of a sudden, she looked her grandpa directly in the eye, held out the cup of milk, poured it onto the floor and said in the cutest voice ever "I do it". Twenty-five years later, she is still known as "I Do It Amber"!

QuiltChick said...

Hmmm, as I just got a haircut, I will share my haircut story...when my daughter Em was 8 years old, she watched me pouring over hairstyle mags for a style I might like. She looked up at me with those big hazel eyes and said "But why mummy? you already have two hairstyles, big brown helmet and big brown bush!" Unfortunately 11 years later, it's still true.....thanks for give away day!

Liz B. said...

Lovely fabrics, and very generous of you! My funny story is one I've been telling everyone lately. I took my 5-year-old niece grocery shopping and asked her to please remind me to get hamburger buns for dinner. She asked, "Can you please also get cheeseburger buns, I LOVE cheeseburgers." Her parents got a kick out of that one.

Holly said...

You want funny - my daughter just painted her face, hair and a large portion of my craft room with hot pink nail polish. Because "its beeeaaauuutiful!"

Had to go in the other room to stop laughing before I could put her in time out.

amandasasikirana said...

oh this is hard... well, here goes. my daughter clims on my lap and said excitedly, bubble, bubble! I said, what bubble, there's no bubble on the table. she kept on saying bubble, bubble! finnaly she grabs my polyfil stuffing and said bubble! ooohh.... so that's bubble!

Eema-le said...

When my MIL is grumpy she loves to say (you have to imagine this coming from a very proper looking 75 year old with a British accent);

"I have two words for you, and they're NOT good morning"

Deanna said...

I know I will think of a million funnier things after this is posted, but here's what I have now--

Until very recently my husband believed (because I told him so) that the only way to cure tapeworms was to hold a jelly doughnut near the afflicted's rear end and grab the head of the worm when it came out to have a snack.

Baba said...

For the fabric Stash: Something funny. You would think having free range chickens would be the coolest in thing to do, but every morning we have to scrape off the chicken poop from our steps just to walk outside. How cool is that?

melonkelli said...

What do you call a pig with three eyes?






PIIIG!


I don't know why that always cracks me up.

Cindy said...

Person 1: "Knock Knock:"

Person 2: "Who's there"

Person 1: "Smell Mop"

Person 2: "Smell Mop Who?"


Say it out loud and if you don't get it the first time or two...say it a bit faster and you'll get it.

Karin said...

That's amazing! Love the fabric. And you're giving this away? No way.

Karin said...

Oh I'm supposed to be funny. booo.

Lane said...

this is about how awesome my fiance (new boyfriend) at the time really is. we were walking around walmart looking for candy. he was pushing the cart and jumped on like little kids do. the cart went flying out from underneath him, crashing into an end cap, knocking some plastic cups off and he did this superman style face plant on the floor. arms and legs completly out stretched. i fell down on the floor laughing til i cried :)

Terisa said...

I'm loving the fabric selections! Pick me?

Christy said...

Love the fabric, count me in. I have a 7 year old son who will kill me if he finds out I repeated this but it is toooo funny. He gets out of the shower and asks if he will be harry like his dad, I reply yes and he groans. He then asks will I get hair on my privates like dad. And I die laughing and say yes. He then wants to know if he can shave it like I shave my legs and I tell him he can but he might not want to.

Sharon said...

ooh, cool stash givaway! i have a almost two year old who LOVES to play outside. for the past week it's been really really really windy. so we go outside to play, i'll sit on my porch crocheting or something, while my little one plays with our dog, and the wind just knocks her rught over. then she stands back up and gives me this look like i just ran over and pushed her down and ran back to my seat. then she gets blown over again, and turns aroung with this look on her face that just yells "quit pushing me over mom!" only to be confused because i'm nowhere near her... it's really funny to watch, "what is this powerful invisable force!" hope it made you laugh:)

M said...

I was just sent this from a friend recently, it made me laugh out loud:

An old man goes to the doctor for his yearly physical, his wife tagging along. When the doctor enters the examination room, he tells the old man, "I need a urine sample, a stool sample and a sperm sample."

The old man, being hard of hearing, looks at his wife and yells: "WHAT?"

"What did he say? What's he want?"

His wife yells back, "He needs your underwear."

Hehehe, hope you thinks it's funny too! Your blog is really great & I love your stash giveaway!

What is a soda's favorite kind of music?

Soda pop!

My toddler is practicing her manners, (very well, I might add) and the other day I was in a mood. She was climbing all over me, like she likes to do while i am busy, and knocks my water over onto the carpet. Me being a mellow person, used sarcasm, instead of harsh words. I said sarcastically, "Thank you for spilling my water!" I removed her from it, and proceeded to clean the mess up. About five minutes had passed, and I sit back down beside her, and she says "You're welcome, Mommy." I had no clue what she was talking about, so I asked her what I was welcome for, not expecting her to say what she did "You're welcome... for spilling your water." Oh, how hard it was not to laugh at that, and to explain sarcasm to a toddler. sigh...

Thanks for the chance to win! And for being so generous!

lyndyloo said...

Lovely blog thank you. Funny story - I think it will be hard to beat a lot of the others that are here but..this is good but long sorry :)

A Michigan woman and her family were vacationing in a small New England town where
Paul Newman and his family often visited.

One Sunday morning, the woman got up early to take a long walk. After a brisk five-mile hike,
she decided to treat herself to a double-dip chocolate ice cream cone.

She hopped in the car, drove to the center of the village and went straight to the combination bakery/ice cream parlor.

There was only one other patron in the store:
Paul Newman, sitting at the counter having a doughnut and coffee.

The woman's heart skipped a beat as her eyes made contact with those famous baby-blue eyes.

The actor nodded graciously and the star struck woman smiled demurely.

Pull yourself together! She chides herself. You're a happily married woman with three children, you're forty-five years old, not a teenager!

The clerk filled her order and she took the double-dip chocolate ice cream cone in one hand and her change in the other. Then she went out the door, avoiding even a glance in Paul Newman's direction.

When she reached her car, she realized that she had a handful of change but her other hand was empty.
Where's my ice cream cone? Did I leave it in the store? Back into the shop she went, expecting to see the cone still in the clerk's hand or in a holder on the counter or something! No ice cream cone was in sight..
With that, she happened to look over at Paul Newman.
His face broke into his familiar, warm, friendly grin and he said to the woman,

"You put it in your purse."

That would be so me!!

Alexa said...

Maybe you have to know the people, maybe not. There is a great knitting group that I've been to a few times. One of the guys was introducing his partner to knitting. He gave him the yarn & needles and let him have at it (he knew the basic knit stitch). A little while later he calls out "I don't know what to do, I'm at the end of my rope!" He had run out of yarn and didn't know how to join more.

Count me in! What a fun bunch of fabrics! Something for you to laugh about? Listening to my 4 year old explain to me about the 'molecubes' that go into your nose and that's how your nose smells! The things he picks up from TV!

Jennifer Ladd said...

Very cool giveaway! I'm going to try to come up with a good one so I can win ...

My daughter is from Vietnam, and we've really been focusing on trying to get her to understand what that means. We are always trying to tell her that Vietnam is VERY far away, and she was born there, but she now lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. So when she was looking over my shoulder as I was working on the computer a few days ago and she saw a map of the United States, I was happy to point out to her where she lives. I pointed to Lake Michigan and showed her how Milwaukee is right next to the lake. In a very animated voice, she said "Oh, yeeeaaah. I live in Milwaukee." A full minute passes in silence as I continue to work and she stares at the map. She looks up at me with a look of "yeah, right" and says "Noooo.... I can't fit in that computer."

kelliemorgan said...

How do you make a Kleenex dance? . . . Put a little boogie in it. A great joke from a great student of mine. Thanks for the chance at these. Awesome!

Ylime said...

my three year old just ask for help in the potty and when I got there she had tp (still attached to the roll) stuck between her cheeks. hmmmm.... it is going to be an interesting day. :)

UK lass in US said...

I was reminded of this one yesterday: My husband and son were washing their hands in a public restoom when my son points to a man exiting a cubicle and says, "I think he did a poo poo because it's stinky in here"...

I think I'm too short to carry off your cool fisherman pants with style, but I couldn't pass up the chance for that beautiful fabric. Take care,

Mommyof2girlz said...

Today I was counting to 3 to give my youngest daughter (almost 2yrs) time to clean up her act..and just as I get to "2"..she screams at me "tee" and starts to laugh...I wouldn't keep a straight face, she is just too cute.
Thanks for the giveaway :)

Terrie Sandelin said...

Funny Story (to me anyway, so just a little worrisome noting just how much these moments made me laugh): sitting on the front porch on a summer night next to my husband, vodka tonic in hand. A very sweet, peaceful moment. Then a bug bit me on the arm and it really stung and I twitched my arm and threw the tonic in my husband's face. Totally unintentional (!!) but the astonished look on his face (his dripping wet face) as he turned to me, "What did you do that for?" Still gives me the giggles. Fast forward a decade or so later, siting on the back deck with my husband on a summer night. Very peaceful. I take the ball and aim towards the back yard to make the dog happy and hit the deck post instead, bounce the ball off the side of my dearly beloved's head. He turns to me: "What is it with you, me, and summer nights?" And me, saying, "Honey, honestly, you know I couldn't do that if I tried." Okay, probably not funny to anyone but me.

The Shumate Family said...

I am at a loss for a real side splitter, although I am constantly laughing at something or other, raising 4 children... but my brother's favorite joke was always...

"How do you make a hankie dance?"

"Put a little boogie in it!"

Hope you enjoy all the humor coming your way today! Thanks for the giveaway!

SummersDesigns said...

My daughter is 11 months old. I have heard of children holding their breath to get what they want, but I had never seen a baby act like they were trying to puke when they don't get their way. She will sit there in the floor making an awful noise, turning red, all the while looking at me to see what I am doing. Thanks for the giveaway!

janet said...

i really like the selection of fabrics your offering! I can see some really cute things made with them!

janet said...

oh, i didn't know i had to be funny with that last comment. sorry, i'm not quick with funny.

The Mangerchine's said...

I love this bag!

so something funny (and true). one day i was at work and had just finished interviewing someone for a job, went back to my office, and realized that my fly had been down the whole time! worst part was, that i was wearing one of my worst pairs of underwear that is only reserved for days when everything else is dirty... it's a shiny leopard print pair, and i'm not an animal print kinda girl! how embarassing!

Lola Jo said...

Ooh, great giveaway!

My Dad likes to ask my daughter to get sodas for him. It drives me crazy and I think that's mainly why he does it. Anyway, we were having a family party and my Dad asks my daughter for a second soda and she says "No, Grandpa! They are not good for you! You should have some water now." He has since stopped asking her for seconds...

Laura said...

So I work at a daycare. With toddlers (18-30 months). One day during co-ed bathrooming one of the girls asks "he has a tail?" By the time we realized what she was saying and what she was talking about she was on another thought so it didn't get clarified till a couple days later when she asked "I touch it?" LOL!

Tam said...

I'm not funny, so no chance of winning, but just wanted to say what a wonderful giveaway.

angela said...

I don't know if I should post this here but it's hilarious. Several months ago, my 5 year old daughter woke up after only being asleep a few hours. I was still awake (probably blog surfing) so she came into the living room where I was. My husband wasn't aware the she was awake. He came into the room wearing just his underwear/tightie-whities, something he never does especially if the girls are awake. As soon as he turned the corner and realized she was awake, he turned back around to leave the room. As he was walking away, Ava asked him "Dad, what's that in your panties?" ugh. She was still half asleep so I don't think she remembers. Thank goodness.

Sara said...

Love this giveaway! Ok, I have a terrible memory for funny things. Here is the only joke I can ever remember:
Did you hear about the fire at the circus?
It was in tents!
(say it out loud)
:)

Louisa said...

Laugh every day, every hour. This is my latest smile: So I'm happily browsing all these new blogs and leaving comments for the giveaways. Have to type in the this is a human leaving a comment security word that shows up on the screen, usually a make me squint nonsense sequence of syllables. And then what shows up... sadist. What!? What's google/blogger trying to tell me! Spyware?! Identify theft on my id?! Well, it made me laugh.

SIGNE said...

A couple og days ago a bumble bee flew up my pants while I was playing with my children, their friends and the parents og their friends. When it bit me I saw no other option than to drop my pants to let it out.
The bumble bee flew off, but nobody saw it, so they were all looking at me like I'd completely lost my mind.
Once I pulled my pants up again and looked around, I just started howling with laughter. They look on their faces - the adults particularly, was priceless

bellsjo said...

A classic about ice cream vans to tell the kids - when they play music they have run out of ice cream!

Love the fabric - what a lovely giveaway!

Marte said...

Hi! I love every thing you do! I wont it!!

Heather said...

My son and daughter were eating animal crackers. I gave each of them a handful. I later heard my daughter crying because her big brother ate some of hers. When I asked him why he did it, he very calmly responded, "They wanted to go see their friends!" (the other animal crackers in his belly) :)


Thanks for the giveaway!

funny story...

one winter i moved my car out of the driveway and parked it on the street. When I did this I rolled down my window to talk to my husband. The next morning we woke up to a blizzard. It was so bad there was a driving ban in the city, so we stayed snuggled up inside. When we decided to go out and shovel out our cars...i noticed mine looked weird. Well, I left my window open and yes....there were drifts in my car. I had to literally shovel out the inside of my car. BTW...my husband couldn't stop laughing at me. I was so embarrassed I made his promise not to tell a sole! He kept his word...I finally told my parents about that one a few years ago.


Thanks for the chance to win!

Things that make me laugh are things my boys say/do. My oldest got a new pair of shoes and said that he looked "snazzy". He also says that when he's either in 1st grade or college that he'll ride a horse. With or without the snazzy shoes, I'm not sure.

carmel said...

2 funny things that my kids have sed latly:
my 5/5 year old doghter askt me, while playing on the computer with the comfy game, who is talking to her throgh the game? is that god's voice??? that was so funny!!! and we do not raze are kids thinking that god talks to them. so that was one.
second thing is with our 2 year old boy that talks so sweet and babyesh- we have a cow soft toy. and the cow has these small udders. so he askt me in hebrew: what is that? is that teath?
:-)
and now im 7 monthes pregnant...
hhhhh....

Tawny said...

It's so difficult to be funny on cue. So I'll let me son try it out. Here is an excerpt from my latest blog post:

Terry catches Logan and proceeds to pretend that the little boy is a snack: "Num num I'm going to eat you!"

Logan squeals and tries to run away.

Terry: "This little boy is so tasty!"

Logan: "Logan no tasty!" He then starts brushing off his arms and legs. "Logan no tasty! Wiping the tasties off!"

HAHAHAHA!

So that's how you do it - and here I was walking around all tasty, when I could have just wiped the tasties off. Too much fun!

bylulu said...

My Lovely (and INNOCENT) daughter after a recent visit to grandma's house discovered and learned about Conch Shells... My mom has a few of them. and little L Loved hearing the ocean in them. When she got home she decided to tell here dad about all the cocks she saw a grandmas house. Needless to say after much laughter and explanation my husband relaxed!

Ruth said...

Eehaw, after reading all these funny stories, I just can't think of anything funnier to tell you. Wah, I'm so boring. But I do like this giveaway and your blog. Thanks for the link to the tiny happy tutorial.

I don't know how funny I can be....
Could I just win on account of my good looks?
no, eh?
Well, I can spell supercalafragilistexpealladocious....is that goood?
(apparently I can't spell "good"--oops)
Could I win on the account that my daughter (she's 4) turned to me today and told me I look like I have a pregnant belly? (I'm not, by the way)
So I asked her "do you know what makes a pregnant belly?"
"yep" she smiled "too much dinner".
Honestly, I'm truly a skinny woman trapped in a chubby girls body. truly.
She's fightin' to get out but the food just goes in and shoves her back down!

Oh man! I don't stand a chance. There are some super funny stories on here. I know I don't have anything that funny. Hope you don't hold it against me.

For everyone who had those funny stories? Thanks for all the laughs tonight!

Funny = living in a 2 year old' world....

- statement one (after the man in front of us passed gas at the grocery store - of course at 10 decibels loud) - Mommy! The man butt burped!

- statement two - Mommy, apples have belly buttons like mine!

- statement three (after watching Finding Nemo and trying to get her to eat her (Nemo) vitamins) - No Mommy! I CANNOT EAT! Fish are friends, not food.

I NEED to write all of these down - she'll never believe she said them. She makes my days wonderful and full of life and belly laughs.

Thanks for the opp to win - love these little scraps of fabrics :)

Love the fabric scraps! I have another toddler funny: the other day I told my daughter, "Wow, you are smart!" She replies, "No Mom, I'm a smart cookie!"

When my son was four or so I was out mowing the lawn and he just would not stay inside with his daddy like I wanted him to. Finally in exasperation I explained that if he didn't stay out of my way while I was mowing I might cut off his toes. He gasped in horror and said "Why would you do that?" and I hurredly had to explain I meant accidentally, with the mower. Kids! :)

My best stories are about my daughter (of course!). She was born deaf and received cochlear implants which allow her to hear. Because she got her first one at 15 months her speech is that much behind. I crack up at some of the things she says. Some people don't get my humor, but here are a few of her words ;)

Like most kids she likes ice cream and she asks for it but it sounds more like ass creme. So I asked of course if she wanted chocolate or vanilla ass creme and she went for chocolate! hehe On a less vulgar example, her dad just graduated from graduate school and she was excited to go to his "congratulations" and got a kick out of his "congratulation clothes". She is also looking forward to congratulating from preschool next month!!

Thanks for letting me share and get in on the giveaway!!

Ooo, lovely fabrics and bag pattern!

Let me see, funny... Well this morning I was listening to the Country program on the radio (yes I'm a city girl but it's so fascinating!) and in the middle of a serious bit about farming in drought country they have a quick sound-bite of an interview with someone on the farm that went like this: "I'm one of 17 kids. I blame my mother, she was a bit deaf and every time my parents went to bed my father would say "so woman, are you going to sleep or what?" and she'd say "what?"" It was so unexpected and amusing that I really did laugh out loud :)

With 4 boys it's not hard to get your surprises quite often! At that moment it's sometimes not funny, but great for later :)
Like the time that my now 10-yo was about 3 and I made some paper-maché balloons for piñatas. I hung them to dry on the fan in the living room (luckily we didn't get visitors until they were dry), and he asked me to turn it on... NO WAY!

Recently I did the project again for his little brothers (then 2 and 4), and my 2-yo didn't even ask and turned the fan on! You can't imagine the mess in the room...

Ahhh, remnants - beautiful!
Ok, I only know one joke and it's not funny, but it's funny to me cos it's the only joke I can remember....
Q.What's white & falls out of trees?
A. a Washing Machine

I know, it's not funny, my girlfriend made it up in grade 7 and it's the only joke I can ever remember!

Sorry, you had to read such a bad joke.
Forgive me.
From a fellow Australian.....

I am not very good at funny, but will give it a go because I really want a chance to win :D

After chatting with friends for a while at a party I decided to go and see what my then 3 year old son was up to (as you do). I walk into the family room to find that he was in a very deep and meaninful conversation with a lady that I did not know very well, that was OK! The problem was that he was talking about how his mum had REEEAAAAALLLLY BIG BOOM BOOMS and I had absolutely no idea what he was talking about. He spotted me across the room and yelled out....

Hey mum you have reeeeeaaalllly big booms booms don't you mum???

At this point I still had absolutely no idea what he was talking about (nor did anyone else for that fact, and yes everyone was listening at this point) I said...

I don't know what you are talking about baby, what does mommy have???

Him: You have reeeeaaaallllly big boom booms mommy, show her your boom booms.........

I still wasn't getting it and gave him a puzzled look!

He then decided he should try and show her himself and comes over and starts to lift up my top!!! :O

It wasn't until then that I had realised what he was telling the world about :blush: I was soooo embarrassed!!!!

And on a side note, I'm not that big at all LOL!

Thank you for offering such a great giveaway!

We recently moved from North Carolina to North Dakota USA - about 1700 miles away - and there is a huge Norwegian population up here (I'm still a Southern Girl at heart) - Anyway - they have these Lena and Olie jokes - (I guess those are common Norwegian names) - and they are so funny.

Lena is walking home carrying a case of beer...
Lars passes her on the road and says "Vatcha got dere Lena" (Trans. What have you got there, Lena?)
Lena replies "A case of beer - I got it for Olie"
to which Lars replies "Good trade!"

I know - hahahahaha...

I have a friend with a small son. She noticed the refrigerator door open the other day, the eggs missing. She found him in his room with his stuffed birds spread around in twos and threes. When she walked into his room he beamed at her and exclaimed "You're just in time to see the NEXT set of eggs hatch!" And sure enough, under several birds, she found eggs splatted into the carpet.

Now I get to go back and read all the other stories :)

Malinda said...

oh the stories above are soo funny!!

I'm not really a story teller but...

my husband is a late night person and I am so not! I always go to bed first and he usually comes in to get one last smooch in before I go to sleep. Sometimes he can't resist and will tickle me until I'm laughing so hard that snort.

Ginny said...

I'm not funny, but wanted to drop by & say such a cute bag. Love seeing all the crafty talent around the world!

I love the spotted leopard fabric.
I have a funny story that is not mine. I found it here and nearly spit out my drink when reading it.

"My son started playing with Thomas trains before he could speak thanks to an older cousin. So when he started to talk, he would say train names...So like all children some of the letter sounds go missing when first speaking.

Thomas= dumb-Azz He would emphasize AZZ
And Percy -can you guess, yep Pussy

Well, this went on for like a year, so we got used to hearing him say it and wouldn't even think anything about it. Also, kids get pronouns mixed up...like "pick you up" instead of "pick me up" So one day we were out at a park playing and Ben runs up to me and says, "Where's your pussy....dumb-AZZ?" in his cutest little boy voice with his hands out and shoulders up. Well, the mom next to me was like, "ughhh...what did he say?" I'm pulling trains out of my pockets and started to explain, but she didn't think it was funny. Once I saw she was offended, I started laughing so hard at how it must have really sounded. She looked at me like I was crazy and left."

Q:What did the snail that was on the turtle's back say?

That's my favorite joke, it's so clean and simple and cute!

My Mother's Day card was signed from Cinderella. I asked Delaney (my 3 1/2 year old) if she'd sign her real name too, in case we end up having 20 kids and in 20 years I want to remember who gave me this precious card. Her reply: "Well, do you want me to write Delaney, or facts?"

My husband and I had the very rare night out last night, and I entertained my friends by singing songs from a children's television show:

"When the question is digestion, your body knows how to break it down, whoo!"

My friends got a kick out of it!

Mary said...

Gorgeous fabrics & thanks for the awesome tutorial (I added it to my list of thing to sew this summer!)

I am not that funny, but here is one of my favs:

Did you ever notice when you blow in a dog's face he gets mad at you? But when you take him in a car he sticks his head out the window. - Steve Bluestone

So true!

One time I was trying to teach my daughter how to paint. I put out an apple to teach her how to draw a sphere, paint and shade. I said to work on painting her apple, and I would be right back (I had to go take care of the baby). When I got back, I was ready to teach her how to shade her work, but what I found was my daughter took the red paint and actually painted the green apple red. She literally "painted the apple".

It's an old joke around out house now. Whenever we do something silly, someone in the house sings out, "paint the apple".

I would love to have your fabric. I'm also going to try for the paint too. I always need them.

We water our cats using a recyling water fountain. One day the power went out, one of the cats wanted a drink but would only drink from if the fountain was flowing. He was so peeved that the water wasn't moving that he hauled off and smacked the fountain!

Drea said...

LOVE the fabric and was actually going to check out that very tutorial, I thought the bag was too cute there sitting on the side of your blog!

Yesterday my husband was working outside as usual (he used to be a landscaper and now that he's confined to a cube in his current job, he's making up for lost time on most nights and weekends--I'm pretty sure he's addicted to buying seeds/plants on ebay) and so our son likes to peak out at him through the screen door every once and a while to see what he's up to. So this particular time my son starts dancin' at the door (as only 13 month olds can) and there is my husband, doing some sort of umpa-lumpa dance outside at him to make him laugh. They continue this a couple times and the last time I saw a group of young girls ride their bicycles by our house--didn't think much of it until my husband peeks in the door and said, why didn't you warn me?! One of the girls had turned to her friend and said, "now THAT's scary" as my husband was jiving at our front door, so he tried to step aside so they would see my son dancing with him... but, alas, I'm pretty sure they only saw a grown man doing some sort of butt dance at my front door from their angle... maybe that's why our neighbors don't talk to us much...;)

Hmmm...something funny? Yesterday some family members came over to meet my new baby boy and I had Gabe in a wrap-around sling-type-gadget; the kind that creates a bunch of folds around your body which your baby slips into as if still in the womb only on the outside. And while everyone else was cooing and adoring, my 5-year old cousin shared his opinion that with Gabe's head peeking out of the kangaroo-pouch, it looked like I was a two-headed alien. He then asked his mother earnestly whether all aliens have two heads.
