A Pattern and Fabric Giveaway

GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED

This is me. Well, the lower half of me. I'm modeling the skirt I made on Saturday and wore to church Sunday. The pattern is Street Fair Skirts, designed by Marie-Madeline Studio, and made from "Zesty Zinnia" fabric by Michael Miller. I love my new skirt, and how comfortable and feminine it feels to wear.

You can have up to three entries. Here's how:

1. For your first entry, leave a comment telling me which one of the 15 Marie-Madeline Studio patterns you'd like to win.

2. For a second entry, just tell me a joke - a clean joke, please! Whether you have a knock-knock or a one-liner, leave the joke and punchline in a comment. We all like a good giggle, or even a good groan, if it comes to that. (Does everyone know why the chicken crossed the road?)

3. For a third entry in the giveaway, post about this giveaway on your blog, linking back to my post. Then return here and leave a comment saying you've blogged about it and where we should go have a look.

Here are a few other giveaway details:

Okay, I would probably choose the Tessa Bloomers & Bag Pattern. For the fabric (this was hard! :), I would probably choose Darla Rosie Dot Green for the bloomers and Yellow Darla Rosie Dot for the bag!

Thanks for hosting this wonderful giveaway!

My 4 year old grand daughter, Haven, told me a joke this morning without realizing it! While I was pouring out her cheerios, she saw my Fiber One cereal and asked what it was. I said "oh, that's my cereal and you probably wouldn't like it." She said "Oh, is that what you feed mice?" Get it? She heard "my cereal" as "mice cereal". I thought it was funny, anyway!

Chantel said...

I've been eying the street flair pattern ever since they came out with it, and would absolutely LOVE TO HAVE IT!! :)

Your skirt is beyond adorable. I'd be terribly tempted to just copy you, because I loooove the black and red together. Except. I don't have a cute shirt. hummm...

Chantel said...

A riddle, if you please:

What is greater than God, more evil than the devil, the rich need it, the poor have it, and if you eat it you will die.

Apparently, this question was asked to two groups: college graduates, and first graders. Guess who won? :)

Either the Street Fair or the Route 66 would be perfect - both my daughter and I could wear them... perhaps even my grad-student step-daughter would like them!

What do you do all day??

A man came home from work and found his three children outside, still in their pyjamas, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and 20 wrappers strewn all around the front yard.
The door of his wife's car was open, and so the front door to the house and there was no sign of the dog. Proceeding into the entry, he found an even bigger mess. A lamp had been knocked over, and the throw rug was wadded against one wall.
In the front room the TV was loudly blaring a cartoon channel, and the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing.
In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, the fridge door was open wide, dog food was spilled on the floor a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand was spread by the back door.
He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife.. He was worried she might be ill, or that something serious had happened. He was met with a small trickle of water as it made its way out the bathroom door.
As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap and more toys strewn over
the floor. Miles of toilet paper lay in a heap and toothpaste had been smeared over the mirror and walls.
As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in the bed in her pyjamas, reading a novel.
She looked up at him, smiled, and asked how his day went..
He looked at her bewildered and asked, 'What happened here today?'
She again smiled and answered, 'You know every day when you come home from work and you ask me what in the world I do all day?'
'Yes,' was his incredulous reply.
She answered, 'Well, today I didn't do it.'

I apologize for the length of the 'joke' but I like it!!

I really like the bag pattern called Bianca.

Peach Rainbow said...

I'd love the route 66 skirt pattern

Peach Rainbow said...

I read this long ago in a weekend paper, glad I found it in the net as well.
You might have already heard it but the first time I read it, it made me laugh till I was teary!

here goes;

Two little boys, ages 8 and 10, are excessively mischievous. They are always getting into trouble and their parents know all about it. If any mischief occurs in their town, the two boys are probably involved. The boys' mother heard that a preacher in town had been successful in disciplining children, so she asked if he would speak with her boys.

The preacher agreed, but he asked to see them individually. So the mother sent the 8 year old first, in the morning, with the older boy to see the preacher in the afternoon.

The preacher, a huge man with a booming voice, sat the younger boy down and asked him sternly, "Do you know where God is, son?"

The boy's mouth dropped open, but he made no response, sitting there wide-eyed with his mouth hanging open. So the preacher repeated the question in an even sterner tone, "Where is God?!"

Again, the boy made no attempt to answer.

The preacher raised his voice even more and shook his finger in the boy's face and bellowed, "Where is God?!"

The boy screamed & bolted from the room, ran directly home & dove into his closet, slamming the door behind him. When his older brother found him in the closet, he asked, "what happened?"

The younger brother, gasping for breath, replied, "We are in BIG trouble this time."

"GOD is missing, and they think we did it!"

A peanut walks into a police station to make a complaint claiming he was a salted.

A jump-lead walks into a bar. The barman says "I'll serve you, but don't start anything".

A sandwich walks into a bar, The barman says, "Sorry, we don't serve food in here".

A dyslexic man walks into a bra.

A country doctor went way out to the boondocks to deliver a baby.

It was so far out, there was no electricity. When the doctor arrived, no one was home except for the laboring mother and her 5-year-old child. The doctor instructed the child to hold a lantern high so he could see, while he helped the woman deliver the baby.

The child did so, the mother pushed and after a little while, the doctor lifted the newborn baby by the feet and spanked him on the bottom to get him to take his first breath.

The doctor then asked the 5-year-old what he thought of the baby.

"Hit him again," the 5-year-old said. "He shouldn't have crawled up there in the first place!"

Ooooh, that's tough! The aprons are SO cute. I think I'd go for the Route 66 pattern though, and make myself and my oldest daughter some more skirts!

Cathy said...

A joke from my dd's science book:

Sherlock Holmes and his faithful companion Dr. Watson go on a camping trip. They find a beautiful spot and set up their tent. After a full day of enjoying nature, they go into their tent and fall asleep. Some hours later, Holmes wakes Dr. Watson and says, "Look up at the sky and tell me what you see." Watson is awestruck. After a moment, he says, "I see countless stars." Mr. Holmes replies, "What does that tell you?" Watson considers for a moment and says, "It tells me that the universe is vast, and it will probably take us several lifetimes to gain even a small amount of understanding as to how it functions and what our place is in it." Mr. Holmes asks, "Anything else?" Mr. Watson thinks for a moment and says, "Based on the position of the stars, I would say it is approximately two o'clock in the morning." Once again, Mr. Holmes asks, "Anything else?" Desperate now, Watson replies, "Because the sky is so clear, we will probably have a beautiful day tomorrow." Once again, Mr. Holmes asks, "Anything else?" Frustrated, Mr. Watson says, "I can't think of anything else. What does it tell YOU?" Holmes is silent for a moment and then says , "Elementary, my dear Watson. Someone has stolen our tent."

Since I am a blonde, I have blonde jokes in abundance ... this one is my Mom's favorite.

A blonde walked into the library and said "I'd like a Big Mac, a large fry, and a Coke."

The librarian, surprised, stammered, "Well, ma'am ... this is the library."

"Oh, oh, I'm sorry!" said the blonde.

Then she whispered, "I'd like a Big Mac, a large fry, and a Coke."

Here is the joke. My mother was wearing a bandana to keep sweat out of her eyes while working in the yard. My niece dropped off my grandniece for babysitting. The little one looked at my mother and very very seriously said, "Grandma, are you a piiiiii-wrat". It was hilarious and all we could do to not lol. My mother is a petite white haired 80-year old and certainly not a pirate.

Hannah said...

I'd love to win the Tessa bloomer pattern! So cute for my girls!

Hannah said...

Second entry - why did the banana go to the doctor?

Answer: Because he wasn't peeling well.

Hannah said...

Oops, I guess I didn't read all the instructions. I'd like the Street Fair pattern, and the Darla Rose aqua!

Hannah said...

What's the difference between a woman jogger and a sewing machine?

A sewing machine only has one bobbin.

The Biggest Lie

Two boys were arguing when the teacher entered the room.

The teacher said, "Why are you arguing"?

One boy answered,
"We found a ten dollar bill
and decided to give it to whoever tells the biggest lie."

"You should be ashamed of yourselves,"
said the teacher.
"When I was your age,
I didn't even know what a lie was."

The boys gave the ten dollars to the teacher.

After seeing your finished skirt I must say that I too would love to try the Street Fair skirt pattern. I could envision it in many different fabric combos - oh to have a new summer skirt ... Sadly, I don't have any funny crack you up jokes that come to mind at this moment.

Second entry joke:
A blonde cop stops blonde motorist and asks for her driving license.

The Motorist scuffles around in her purse and can't find it. She says to the cop, "I must have left it at home officer."

The cop says, "Well, do you have any kind of identification?" The motorist scuffles around in her purse again, and finds a pocket mirror.

She looks at it and says to the cop, "All I have is this picture of myself." The cop says, "Let me see it, then." So the blonde motorist gives the mirror to the blonde cop, who looks at it, and replies, "Well, if I had known you were a police officer, I wouldn't have even pulled you over. You can go now."

Kristen said...

Love the Street Fair pattern - yours turned out so lovely! I'm very glad to have found your blog, and thank you for the entry in your giveaway. :)

Kristen said...

I'm sorry - I forgot to add my joke for an extra entry:

There were three men on a hill with their watches.

The first man threw his watch down the hill and it broke.

The second man threw his watch down the hill and it broke.

The third man threw his watch down the hill, walked all the way to the bottom, and caught it.

The other two men were puzzled and asked the third man how he did it.

The third man said, "Easy. My watch is 5 minutes slow!"

Hi Linda,
great give away and didn't your skirt turn out beautifully.

Some lovely patterns on Maria-Madelaine's site and hard to choose but finally decided that my favourite is Laraine shoulder bag as that is such an unusual closure.

I was going to post a link on my blog but as I haven't updated it literally for months I am positive no one is following it at present.

Hope you like my joke...

A new Woolworths Supermarket opened in Adelaide, SA. It has an automatic water mister to keep the produce fresh. Just before it goes on, you hear the distant sound of thunder and the smell of fresh rain.

When you pass the milk cases, you hear cows mooing and you experience the scent of fresh cut hay.

In the meat department there is the aroma of charcoal grilled steaks and chops.

In the liquor department, the fresh, clean, crispsmell of a Carlton Draught.

When you approach the egg case, you hear hens cluck and cackle and the air is filled with the pleasing aroma of bacon and eggs frying.

The bread department features the tantalizing smell of fresh baked bread & cookies.

I don't buy toilet paper there anymore.

Hi Linda
My favourite pattern is "laraine shoulder bag pattern".
Cheers

Ozjane said...

That route 66 skirt looks very tempting to make.

Marianne said...

I Love the Frilly Fandango Apron!
My DB and DSIL adore the 50's, they are doing their house 50's style, and Mandy would love this apron.
