  8. Well, that's not fair. You have cheered me up with these bright, happy colors late at night when I'm not feeling well, but I don't have anything cheery for you. I'm sorry, I'm just one of those people who can't remember a joke if my life depends on it...which, thank goodness, it never has. Here's hoping you have lots and lots of smiles today, even though I couldn't help. :) magistra13 at yahoo dot com

  12. When my son was young this poem made him giggle. It still makes me smile thinking about that. Maybe it will give you a smile as well.

    Snowball By Shel Silverstein

    I made myself a snowball
    As perfect as could be.
    I thought I’d keep it as a pet
    And let it sleep with me.
    I made it some pajamas
    And a pillow for its head.
    Then last night it ran away,
    But first– – it wet the bed.

  23. We've been pretty sick at our house and the one thing that keeps making me smile is the other day my kids stayed home from school, but decided that they needed home school. Before I knew what was going on my 6 year old had taped a flag (with it's dowel) on the wall with scotch tape so they could say the pledge of alligiance. It took a LOT of tape, but it stayed there till she took it down. Thanks for the cheery fabric to look at!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh, what a lucky girl you are to get to stay home and play with fabric while she is off being drug from one silly thing to the next!

    Enjoy your holiday at home and hugs your kids twice!

  44. I'm loving that alphabet fabric, so pretty. Des may be in Disneyland, but imagine the crowds. Better to be home where you can take time for the odd cup of tea, and leave Disneyland until next month when things aren't so crazy.

  69. Just for laughs, my 3 yr old daughter just asked me to buy her 'smarshmells' (marshmallows):)

    ReplyDelete
  70. Try doing this.
    1) Go to your fabric cabinet/shelves etc. Browse thru those pretty prints. ....
    Does it cheer you up?
    :D
    2) If it fails, grab your bag and go to your favourite fabric store.
    3) Do not open Etsy. Everytime I did that without clear intention to buy something, usually I'd end up feeling awful. LOL.
    Anyway, have a great day! I hope it's not raining again today here in SIngapore, I need my laundry to dry up :P

  71. I would much rather buy fabric, than pay Big bucks to stand in line for loooong time.....maybe get wet.....and not really have anything to show for money spent ( cept pictures...)

    ReplyDelete
  72. Just think, the lines as Disney are like the long lines on Black Friday. I would happily pet the fabrics.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Let's see, how about a corny joke? What do you call an island covered in cupcakes?

    A dessert-ed island!

    Okay, it's awful, but it goes with the fabric, no?

  95. Hi Corrie and Des

    I found a page of quilting quotes on Green Fairy Quilts
    http://greenfairyquilts.com/pages/-QuiltingQuotes.php

    I'm sure some of them will resonate but I'll choose one of them. Hope you like it.

  102. Our 5 year old daughter's favorite joke: "How do you make a tissue dance? ---You put a little boogie in it!" It's getting LOTS of use at our house as we all recover from sinus infections. Sigh Winter WILL be over soon, right?

  107. Taking a break from Christmas sorting and Christmas decorating. We moved 1 1/2 years ago into a smaller house. We did very little decorating last year because we were home only one week in December. Anything (and this is a lot) that doesn't get used this year is not going to be kept. Problem is where to take it. Oh well! Love the fabric. Nancy A; rangerer@sbcglobal.net

  111. Hello! Sorry you couldn't go to Disneyland too, but if it's any consolation, you are missing high prices, long lines, and sore feet. Plus you can stay home and quilt. See? It's not all that bad is it. It would be even better if I win the fabric. Fran
