Here's the plan...(sorry about the dark photos, the clouds are out and the sun is hiding!)
Negotiate with Archie about payment for the task and persuade him out of bed...
|I'm not sure it's worth getting out of bed for, it's lovely and cosy in here...|
|You promise I'll get that biscuit afterwards? Any chance you'll super size it?|
Cut out and fold all the entries...
|This takes far longer than you'd think!!|
Put them in a conveniently empty food bag, add a dozen bits of food and shake...
|You can just see one of the 'biscuits' at the bottom.|
Get Archie to bring me a piece of paper...
|Hmmm, didn't quite think this one through - I think he might be eating the paper!|
Persuade Archie to take his head out of the bag and explain the rules...again! (No photo, I was busy trying to explain the concept of 'there's more to this than eating the biscuits' to a dog who was determined to get his head back in the bag!)
|Do you know, I don't think this is food after all...what's all the fuss about?|
Very kind of you to offer, I hadn't even considered swapping them,
I thought I'd have to bribe someone to take them!! You can send something ifyou want but you don't need to!
Congratulations, Josie! I'll be sending you an email as soon as I've published this post!
(No paper was eaten in the making of this post - I checked!)
I'm off to catch up on some blog reading and then do a spot of hand piecing - I'm stitching the grey borders on my Drunkard's Path blocks and I'm pleased I chose the Kona medium grey, it works well with the City Weekend fabric I've used. I'm also planning my fabrics and blocks for Sarah's QAL - not sure when I'll get round to starting all that cutting though!
Thanks for popping in!
P.S. I'm having a lucky streak at the moment! In the last few days I've won a Pezzy charm pack from Lucy, a beautiful pair of earrings from Karen's friend Catherine (I chose the turquoise pair!) and on Susan's blog I won two pouch patterns from Kat's shop. Thank you to you all, I'm thrilled!
P.P.S. Thank you, Giles and Marjorie - I'm very honoured! I'm going to ignore the rules and post some more random facts over the next few posts instead of what I'm supposed to do, I hope that's ok!
Random Fact Six I've had my ears pierced five times - I wear four (small!) studs in each earlobe and two (still small!) studs in the top of my left ear. I remember going out for my first 'Christmas do' at my last job and the deputy head said (in horror!) to the head 'I didn't know we'd employed a punk!' I think you could say it was a very traditional school *wink*
