What a yarn, time to tickle your creative funny bone.

Good morning all, how are you this Saturday?
I believe it is going to be very wet with us here in the North of Scotland today, would it be wrong to say I'm working so don't mind?
Yes, I know it is, still if the weather isn't great it will be the perfect day for crafting!

Today's crafty funny bone tickling has a crocheting feel to it.  Having been busy with roses and thistles this week I have been drawn to the yarn of hooking!

Why is it when you are counting and following a pattern you always get asked a silly question.  I always answer it with numbers.  My family now know to leave me until I stop counting!  

This next one made me smile, oh I so need one of these bags!
With the recent opening of the new Jurassic World film this one made me giggle, a crafter's version, no dinosaur puns please!

Now do you have any of these?

I have a cross stitch I started whilst in the Navy probably about 24 years ago, it was a traditional style sampler but I made a mistake on the cottage roof.  It was an early piece and I was still very much learning.  I have never gone back to it to rectify my mistake and I can now no longer remember what it was.  The funniest part is that is was in the thatched roof and I bet no one but me would have noticed a slight colour change in the wrong place, until of course I have now told you all.  Maybe one day I will get it back out and finish it.

Finally today I had to just add this last quote.  It made me laugh, I like the idea that you only have to please one person a day.  How easy would that be?  I need to remember this next time I am getting hassled by someone.

It only remains for me to wish you all the very best for the rest of the weekend.  Have a good one whatever your plans.  More from me on Monday.  x

Yeah, I relate to everyone of them Erika, and I do the same when stitch counting, Alistair knows too to back off. Rain here and much cooler, hugs Kate x

Hi Erika,
super funnies today.
Now that last one I have a plaque on my craft room wall with that on it.
Funnily my Dad bought it for me when we were holidaying in Scotland.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
