L@@k what arrived at my doorstep this afternoon! Recently, I entered a contest to win this over at Aunty’s Tea Room, and I WON! If you haven’t met her, I suggest you visit her because she is truly one-of-a-kind. I’ve come to know her as “Teeni”, a remarkable person, writer, and artist. Amongst her many talents is her mad ability to crochet. She has started what she calls “Yarndango“, a weekly challenge for herself to crochet, knit, or even sew one amigurumi a week for a year. She and her husband have recently adopted a sweet little boy kitty named “Chocolate Chip” and to offset his medical costs, she is selling a some of her unique crochet patterns. Most patterns are free and you can even follow her on Facebook. She is encouraging others to join her by trying the challenge for a month and by participating you will make new friends who share the same passion for crafting and get the “Yarndango badge” for your blog. What are you waiting for? Don’t be shy, get over there!
I’ve never won a contest before, ever. So imagine my happiness? I opened the box and this is what I found!
I took him out and introduced myself as his new human mother, and I told him he could call me Big Mama if he’d like. He thought that was cool and told me his name is bLUe.
But wait,… Houston, we HAVE a problem! Teeni didn’t tell me her little alien had a bad habit. This is definitely not right.
Some habits I can handle, like say – a chocolate habit for instance. But smoking that whacky-tobaccy? No. Not in this house.
Here’s bLUe, enjoying his last smoke. He doesn’t look happy but I have to keep him healthy, he is my responsibility now.
Thank you again Teeni! I love him and will take good care of him!
