Besides being a great dad, my Dear Husband Harley Dude (...ok, that's funny...how often can does your title and nickname combine to be a palindrome?)...uh...where was I...oh yes! DH,HD is a renowned pun-master.
To qualify for prizes, you must submit as your entry, a very funny pun as a comment on this post. Did you sleep through English class? By definition, a pun is "a humorous use of a word in such a way to suggest two or more of it's meanings, or the meaning of a word similar in sound."
The only clean jokes I know are actually puns.
What did the fish say when it ran into the wall? Dam.
Two peanuts walk into a bar. One was a salted
A man walks into a bar with a piece of asphalt under his arm. He says "I'll have one for me, and one for the road".
A rope walks into a bar. The bartender says "we don't serve your kind, now get out." He goes outside, twists himself into a knot and then fluffs up his loose ends. He returns to the bar. The bartender says "Hey! Aren't you a rope??" to which he replies "Nope...a frayed knot."
Each day from now until January 24th, I will read the entries to DH,HD. His favorites entries of the day will be entered into a good-old-fashioned-pieces-of-paper-drawing for the very cool prizes (which I'm about to tell you about). I will announce the winners bright and early (Mountain Time) on January 25th before I go to work. One entry per person.
Quilthexle's World. I find her style of piecing very inspirational. Recently she seems to have become addicted to dying fabric. This is phenomenally good news for all of us. There are gorgeous dyed fabrics available in her etsy shop. She has put together a set of beauty just for us!! The pieces are hand dyed from upcycled damask fabric. There are 4 pieces in the set, sized about 21"x 32". Be sure to check out her other fabrics and projects.
I have 3 prizes from my stash:
I met these authors at the May 2011 Quilt Market. Colleen uses paper piecing to make those intricate, seeming impossible medallions. Donna's flip method makes intricate piecing simple. Both of my autographed copies will be sent to one lucky winner who will hopefully USE them instead of just admire them as I did.
And for those of you who like smaller projects, an autographed copy of Gudrun's book on table runners plus Elissa & Heather's bag patterns that include full size applique patterns (I was all excited about skipping the copy-shop step).
I carefully laid these batik charm squares from my stash out for a picture, then after they were stacked up, discovered that I didn't have the memory card in. You'll just have to trust me that they are gorgeous in shades of blue, purple, green, pink & yellow. There are 103 squares of all different batik fabrics (no repeats).
So that's it. 5 prize packages. To enter, add your favorite pun as a comment on this post.
