    So I stop at DD on the way to work today, my normal morning stop, and the guy behind the counter says…where’s your birthday card? HUH…well he remembered from last year that my birthday was around our Memorial Day holiday and wanted to know where my card for my free medium drink was :) What a great way to start my day! Have a wonderful day and thanks!

    What a coinkydink! I have been sharing jokes as my comments today. I am going to re-use this one:

    Why did the chicken cross the playground?

    To get to the other slide!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    I am so obsessed with Survivor that I think I’ll have to miss my weekly patchwork meet up so I can stay home and watch the finale! I can’t even believe it myself. I could set the tivo (which is what I do every week) but I just want to see it so much I don’t think I can wait.

    I am so bad at thinking up funnies on the spur of the moment.
    My 5 year old son told me a joke the other day that was really cute, something about why a chicken crossed the road but I can never remember the finish of jokes. Maybe I am the joke!

    Our kitten is “singing” right now. hehehe…I can’t even begin to describe what he sounds like, but it’s pretty dang funny!! He always sings in the morning and when he wants to play.

    This isn’t a funny story, but it’s still a good one that only quilters will appreciate. Last night we went to dinner at the home of a couple from our synagogue. We don’t know them terribly well. I was explaining about my quilting and the woman said “I have three quilts that I inherited from my grandmother but they are so old – I was about to take them to Value Village.” She showed them to me: a beautiful Irish Chain and a Dresden Plate, and one other that I didn’t know. All hand done, tiny stitches – beautiful colours, exquisite work. The edges were quite frayed, but overall the quilts were in good shape. I oohed and ahhed over them and, instead of taking them to the thrift store, she ended up hanging them over her stair railing! Victory!

    Gorgeous fabrics! Funny but not gross… Totally random, but my 1 yr old is downstairs calling the chickens to come to him, “Ayyye, Tick-dee-dee” (hi, chickadee). It’s very cute!

    sukie says:

    Something funny? Can’t you just look at my face and laugh?? Hopefully that got a grin out of you. . . think of Ron’s circle desk and how that lady ran around it to talk to him. . haha!

    my favorite joke of all time (yes, it’s super corny…)

    An invisible man went to the doctor.

    The doctor said, “I can’t see you”

    Makes me laugh every time!

    Q+B says:

    ok… I was going to write “Pick me… pick me” but I guess I’ll write something longer. Thank you again for hosting the Bloggers’ Quilt Festival, what a huge success it was! I had a fabulous time looking at the quilts and some has created a few inspiration / ideas of quilts. I love the colors and the pattern of the give away – you get really nice fabrics! I should start going venturing out from batiks – because most of my fabrics are batiks. Thanks again for the give away.

    I’m terrible at jokes (even simple ones) but my kids love this one:

    What’s a witch’s favorite subject?

    Thanks for keeping up such a great blog!

    Lynnelle says:

    Well, where do I start? should I just say IT’S MY BIRTHDAY THIS WEEK and I think turning the big ‘double score’ (can’t bring myself to say the number!) deserves a little something, PLEASSSSSSSSSSSSSSE!!!

    Sara says:

    I am so bad at jokes sorry:( I will say my 3 yr old cracks me up all the time though;) He loves to say hi to people walking down the street from our window on the second floor. If they don’t say hi right away then he will keep trying until they do! OK I guess it is more cute, but he’s 3 and such a ham like I said!!

    How about another kid’s joke (my 5 year old twins are all about jokes now!):
    Why is 5 afraid of 6? Because 7, 8 (ate) 9!

    While at a barbeque yesterday, my daughter, who is 17 months, burped so loud that her lips rippled. It was very funny.

    An elderly couple was watching television one evening. The wife said, “I am going to get a dish of ice cream now.” Kindly, the husband offered to get the ice cream for his wife. “I’ll write down what I want so you don’t forget,” she said.

    “I won’t forget,” the old gent said. “But, I want chocolate syrup and nuts on it. So, I’ll write it down,” she replied.

    “I’ll get you the ice cream. Don’t you worry,” replied the gentleman.

    A few minutes later, the old man returned with bacon and eggs. His wife said, “See, I should have written it down because you forgot the toast.”

    ooohhhh ! these fabrics are GORGEOUS !! The solids are PRETTY !!!!! I don’t have a funny story ; but interesting ! While waiting for the Fallen Heroes Ride to start this past Sunday , my friend and I went to bathroom in WalMart (it started in their parking lot) . My friend just lost her mom , and her mom’s friend took some of her clothes and told her she’d make a quilt for her from the clothes . She called her last week and said she could not bring herself to cut the clothes up yet , but she would ‘in time’ . I was talking about memory photo quilts and told her I didn’t know much about them . So a lady in the stall between us started telling me how you copy it and all . So when I was washing my hands , the lady came (a WalMart employee) and apologized for joining the conversation and said ‘you know us quilters , we can’t pass up any opportunity to talk about our quilting ‘.

    Elisabeth says:

    Lovely fabrics. Thanks for a great giveaway.
    And here’s something funny: My daughter who is two years old was suffering from a cold this winter. I said to her: “I can hear you are a little hoarse.” She looked at me with this look on her face and replied: “I’m not a little horse, I’m a little Ellen.”
    Hope it made you laugh.

    shout4joy says:

    my children like to play with words (maybe I need to make a word quilt?) and yesterday seemed to be equivocation day…so we decided we need a word super hero named The Equivocator or Equivocation Man – love those kids! (Pick Me!)

    Marci Girl says:

    Well it is funny that you said funny and not gross…what kind of gross comments have you received in the past?

    A few years ago I heard a joke on the radio that pertained to Thanksgiving, and it was hilarious, but I am so terrible at telling jokes, that by the time I got home to tell my husband, all I could remember was the punchline. So I proceeded to laugh hysterically for an hour and then spit out “He rolled over in the giblet gravy!” We never have figured out what the actual joke was…

    Molly says:

    Ok, not funny but this morning I could NOT find my purse anywhere. Wallet, cell phone, favorite lipstick …. all missing! My kids and I were tearing the house and car apart. Last night I tried to fit in some quick grocery shopping before bed and apparently left it in the cart in Walmart parking lot. Some kind soul turned it in and I retrieved it before work. Very grateful to the person who found it and I just realized I’m trying to do waaaaay too much in my days. I need to slow down and be more mindful of myself.

    I was volunteering at the preschool in town and loved this…its not lol funny but it made me smile and hopefully will make u smile too.

    Teacher addresses whole class..”okay, it time to get in line for snacks. Girls, please stand up, push your chair in and go stand in line by Ms Melissa.”

    All the girls + 1 boy stand up.

    Teacher: “eric are you a girl?”
    4 yr old Eric ” mommy said I canbe whatever I want when I grow up so today I’m a girl cuz I’m hungry”

    Makes perfect sense to me! Thanks for the chance :)

    Love those Bella Pastels.
    This is a real dog story. My pups were prone to tearing up tissue paper, newspaper or any paper they could find, especially kleenex boxes full of tissue. We had two mini schnauzers. We came home from a famly event to no dogs barking. There were tissues everywhere. Lady was in the den smilling at us but no Belle. The family spread out and I took the kitchen. Around the island there she was with a square kleenex box over her head just sitting there. OMG, how long had she been sitting there etc. To this day my adult children make up stories on how that happened. Just cuteness.

    Carly says:

    Love the solids! OK…something funny. My daughter (3) just came and told me she needed to do some “apple jacks” (jumping jacks) to get warmed up. She also calls apple jacks (the cereal) “cheerio jacks” for some reason. :) Thanks for the giveaway!

    Love purple and pink and the solid colors I would need in my stash.
    I am holding up my one hand, how many fingers do you see? 4 the other is a thumb. HA HA! Got this from American Pickers.

    Last week the Queen of England visited Cork city where I live. My kids were discussing this and wondering if she would visit our house (they are 3 and 4) but decided she couldn’t as my friend was staying with us at the time and we have only one guest bed! The innocence of it all made me smile!

    Jody says:

    Thanks for a great giveaway Amy! Kind of a funny story happened to us over the weekend…Our dog has been on a strict diet for the last two years – I had to leave with the girls for a few hours and when I came home he had somehow got into some leftover steak….I was upset to say the least but he looked so happy like he had the best leftover T-bone of his life!!!

    Here’s one of my favorites. So two muffins are in an oven. One muffin says to the other “Wow is it hot in here or what?” The other muffin says “Eeeek! A talking muffin!”

    We gave our weenie dog a bath yesterday (first sunny days in weeks) and right after she ran outside (someone left the door open) and rolled around in the dirt! Guess who got another bath???????

  41. 41

    My little grandson (almost two) can make his head look just like a bobblehead. He will do it on request. It’s hilarious. I am not a joke teller so can’t think of anything really funny. Loved the Festival, Amy! Thanks for the really cool giveaway!

  42. 42
    Mary Smith says:

    Funny, huh? Well, okay…here is what I found amusing this morning. I have a 100 lb dog and she has a doggie door. This morning, it was raining and I heard her barking. I walk over to look and she is inside the house with her head out the door using the flap as a hat so she doesn’t get wet. I laughed so hard I couldn’t yell at her to get back in the house.


  43. 43

    Ah, something funny…ok, until about age 6 my daughter thought that since the word ‘clothes’ referred (often) to more than one item of clothing, it only made sense that one piece of clothing would be referred to as one ‘clo’. As in, ‘I need to put my doll’s clo on her now.’

    erica says:

    I can’t really think of any jokes or anything, but my kids make me laugh all the time with the silly things they do and play, lately my two year old is in to carrying some sort of container stuffed with whatever random things she can fit in it. Yesterday we went to church and she brought a little easter basket with (among other things) her swimsuit stuffed in it. She wasn’t to thrilled when we made her leave it in the car

  45. 45

    Something funny? Wow, now that is some pressure :) My 18 month old will not eat dinner unless there is music in the background…her favorites are The Beach Boys and Jack Johnson. Talk about a combination!

    Helen says:

    I used to teach 6-7 year olds and one numeracy lesson at the start of the year we were ordering and comparing numbers. One of the questions said something like “Look at the numbers below and draw a ring around the largest one”. When I looked at one boy’s work he’d very carefully drawn a beautiful diamond ring, complete with little sparkles of light, around the answer…so cute! Thanks for the giveaway – I’ve enjoyed reading all the amusing comments.

    Deonn says:

    Amy, thanks for hosting your marvelous blogger’s quilt festival! Now another giveaway?? Nice! A joke… hm – I am really bad at jokes, so I here’s a little story. I have a sister who was 51 on May 6th, and another sister who turned 50 on May 18th, and I’ll be 52 in just a couple of days. The three of us are close in many ways. We were all new drivers when we took a trip to “town” to go to the zoo, and my middle sister who was driving saw the sign that read “Speed Bump Ahead”, only she read “Speed, Bump Ahead.” So she sped. And we flew over the bump in the old ’57 Pontiac and hit our heads on the ceiling. That was about 37 years ago, but it still makes me laugh my head off whenever I think about it or tell someone else (her kids). She still doesn’t think it’s funny. Start the day with a smile, I say!

  48. 48

    Something funny: My daughter informed her preschool teacher she was getting a baby brother. Teacher says to me “I thought you looked like you might be pregnant but I didn’t want to ask and be wrong!” I told her “we’re adopting” She couldn’t get any redder! Wait…that’s not funny…maybe a little sad.

  49. 49

    The only funny (only to me) was the joke….what did the grape say to the elephant…..He didn’t say anything, just gave a little whine (wine)….I’m the only one in the world that thinks it’s funny.

    Have a great day.

    I don’t know if this is “funny,” but I found out that when our coffeemaker causes the filter to fall over, I can pour one weak cup back through the reopened filter and then the whole batch tastes better.

    Mary says:

    A man walks into a psychiatrist’s office saying over and over, “I am a wigwam, I am a teepee, I am a wigwam, I am a teepee!” The psychiatrist says, “Relax! You are two tents!”
    Hope you laughed, and thanks for the GREAT giveaway! :)

    yesterday was my daughters 4th birthday party & her grammy got her one of those purple round chairs with princess’s on it & she say’s “but I don’t like like tinker bell anymore” & sits in it with a little poochie lip! Too funny.

    Penny G says:

    I have a cat that will come to me whenever I am ill. The kicker is that if I am not ill she chooses when to come see me and at times will come wake me up and then walk away to prove she is in charge. Not funny at 2 am. My take on it – My husband thinks it is the funniest thing in the world.

    where do bunnies go when they get hurt? to the hopspital! this is the current favorite joke of my 4 year old!

    Angie Woodard says:

    First of all I have to say I love the Hoot Collection fabric. Now this is one of those you had to be there moments but over the weekend we went out to eat at a restraunt called Fuji. This is a Japanese restraunt where they cooked at our table. Now the cook scared our friends 2 1/2 year old little boy and he started crying. The cooked reached down on his cart and pulled out this statue of this little boy. Well needless to say this little statue shoots out water. Good thing my 10 year old daughter didn’t ask questions. Great evening and we had a blast.

    Tanyia says:

    My daughter told me this funny … A girl walked into a shoe store… what did she say? OW!

    I will tell you the true story of… zombie bird!

    I was outside and saw a dead bird on the ground. Since I didn’t want the dog to get into it, I got the dustpan to scoop it up and toss it over the fence into the trees. When I did that, the bird suddenly came to life and flew, low to the ground, towards the open door! I didn’t turn around fast enough to see if it got inside, but when I went in, the dog was contentedly munching away on her dogfood, and not acting at all excited like she would if a zombie bird had suddenly flown into the house.

    The next morning, I found the bird lying in front of the door INSIDE THE HOUSE! It had somehow been hiding inside all night, without my dog being aware of it, until it finally crawled out to finish dying!

    This time, when I scooped it up (with much trepidation), it did not come back to life. I still have no idea how my dog didn’t notice it. I can only assume the zombie bird died because it went after my dog but couldn’t find any braaaaaaains.

    I was pushing the button, filling a glass of water at my friend’s refrigerator door. When it was full, I released the button, but the water kept flowing. I started yelling help, and my friend told me to move the glass because unbeknownst to me, the real button was behind the glass. I had been holding the “water” selection button. Thanks for the giveaway!

    Alathia says:

    Hope an underwear story is not considered gross. They were clean. I very much dislike underwear that crawl into my backside! One morning they were crawlin’ big time. Later that morning I was in the restroom and looked down and the tag was in a really weird place. Wait that’s supposed to be on the outside! And what’s it doing down here? Turns out not only had I put them on inside out, they were twisted around. My left leg was through the waist and my waist through the right leg hole. No wonder those babies were crawlin’. After a fit of hysterical laughter, because if you can’t laugh at yourself…. Anyway, I redressed and all was well with the world for the remainder of the day. The End.

    Melanie says:

    Funny? Hmmm. I told my 8 yr old daughter I would pay her $2 to wear a dress today. She said no…but, her 11 yr old brother said, “I would for $2!”:)

    Deborah says:

    I’m awful at jokes, so I’ll just say this stupid thing. We were driving in south Georgia and passed a pasture with a lot of cows in it (and had a strong whiff of the smells associated with a pasture). My daughter was in the back seat and said “Oh my goodness, can you smell all that cow maneuver?” (she was about 6 years old)

    Lovely fabrics – any one of your commenters will be thrilled to win these.

    Okay, this weekend I took my 3-year-old son to the playground, and I was pushing him on the swing. He kept yelling, “Higher! Faster!” So I really gave it all I had and gave him a huge push…and he flew right off of the swing. Thankfully he’s fine, otherwise it wouldn’t be a funny story. Mom of the year!

  68. 68
    Jessica says:

    Yea for a giveaway! Okay, something funny. My 14-month-old son climbed up on his chair, onto the table to reach his playdough which was on our side board. He did all this naked. I didn’t know the boy could climb like that!

    Mimi says:

    For a few years I have had these fancy tongs that were always open and everytime that I would put them in the drawer I would think, “Gosh I should put an elastic around these to close them up, funny that they weren’t made to do that!” Yup for about two years… until a couple of weeks ago when I unknowingly pushed the end thing and they locked shut! Hehehehehe

    We have a lot of critters at our house. 6 indoor cats and 1 indoor dog. The poor dog is species confused.. And while he is not a large dog, he still is about 20 lbs, not too small either. He tries to run across the furniture but the worst part is he tries to use the litter boxes. I guess he thinks if the others can, why can’t he. It’s too funny.

  72. 72
    Tawny says:

    Something funny – that’s a tall order.

    Hmmm… my daughter is learning how to talk and she always says “sunny” instead of “funny”. Everything is so sunny in her world.

    “brother sunny!”
    “puppy sunny!”

    Awww… Ok that wasn’t funny. But it was very sunny!

    Well, I was reading blogs on Saturday ( Rapture day) and Nancy said that she and her friends were going to the big sale at the fabric store that day……” just in case you CAN take it with you”. I laughed out loud. Thanks for the chance to win your great giveaway!!

    lol, Mimi :D

    Me at the beach yesterday as we’re getting ready to leave: “Oh, No!! Where are my glasses????!!!”

    “Mom, right in front of your eyes!”

    (all I can say is: they must’ve been so filmy from the salt air that I didn’t realize I had them on)

    Thanks for the giveaway. I googled quilting jokes and found this.

    Addicted to Quilting

    She Learned to Quilt on MONDAY.
    Her stitches all were fine
    She forgot to make us dinner
    So we all went out to dine

    She quilted miniatures on TUESDAY
    she says they are a must
    They really were quite lovely
    But She forgot to dust

    On WEDNESDAY it was a sampler.
    She says stippling’s fun
    What Highlights What Shadows!
    But The LAUNDRY was’nt done

    Nine Patches were on Thursday
    Green,Yellow,Blue and red.
    I guess she really was engrossed
    She never made the Bed.

    It was wall hangings on Friday.
    In colors she adores
    It never bothered her at all
    That crumbs were on the floor

    I found a maid on SATURDAY
    My week is now complete
    My wife can quilt the hours away
    The house will still be neat

    Well, now its only SUNDAY
    I think I,m about to wilt
    I cursed,I raved,I ranted
    Cause the Maid has learned to QUILT !

    My coworker’s daughter is almost 2 years old, and recently they bought her a pair of little chairs. So she had been picking up the chairs one at a time and moving them wherever she’s going, and muttering “ohmygod ohmygod ohmygod” under her breath as she’s moving them. Apparently she learned this from her dad, who always says “oh my god you are getting so heavy, oh my god” whenever he picks her up in her car seat! She’s such a cutie! Thanks so much for the lovely giveaway!

    Something funny?? My 10 year old son has decided that reading the first three letters of any words is enough. Yesterday he dumped a sweetner packet into his drink. My husband asked him why. He said I wanted more sugar in it. My husband said that it was sweetner not sugar. Ian says “No, it says Sugar Substance”. My husband says “No – it says Sugar Substitute!” I love that boy!

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

    My husband took me to a new quilt store I’ve had on my list for awhile. He opened the door and said, “oh crap.” Cracked me up. And yes the store was just that cool.

    I spent yesterday sewing. Twice when I when to reach for my measuring tape, the cat grabbed it and took off. I had to race around the house chasing a cat with a measuring tape flopping behind him. I swear he was giggling!

    This morning, My sweet 6 year-old “baby” boy was begging for a treat from his Easter basket (yes… it’s still flowing with chocolate goodness!). Of course, my response was, “No candy this early in the morning!” However, he snuggled up close to me with those big eyes and said, “Pretty please… with FABRIC on top??” Needless to say, he thoroughly enjoyed his early morning candy kiss! He knows just how to woo his mommy :)

    My humor tends to be more physical so I often make people mad when I try to be funny over the interwebs… something gets lost in translation. So here is the master of comic delivery, John Lithgow… excuse me, SIR John Lithgow doing a dramatic reading of Gingrich’s press release. Regardless of one’s politics, this is hilarious!

    Several years ago My Brother and his girlfriend were visiting, I did some laundry for them ans as i was hanging their “smalls”on the clothes line i couldn’t believe my eyes. I thought my brother was into some kinky “french knicker” type garment and blamed his much younger girlfriend for leading him astray. I couldn’t look either of them in the face for a while. When i brought the washing in some time later and was folding “HIS” strange undergarment i suddenly realised the garment was “HER” sports Bra/ tankini. Flip one up and hang it from the bottom and let the straps hang down and you will see what i did. We still laugh about it

    My grandkids love grilled cheese sandwiches, but Levi, the 3-year-old thinks they are called “girl” cheese sandwiches, and he never wants a “girl” cheese sandwich, he wants a “boy” cheese sandwich.

    I was telling a friend the other day how to make goof balls with melted carmels, marshmellows and rice krispies. I guess I goofed though because they also have a stick of oleo and a can of sweet condensced milk melted with the carmels. The carmel was too thick to roll the marshmellows in and they wouldn’t coat. Guess I shouldn’t just try to go off the top of my head with the recipe.

    Sarah says:

    I’m having a lazy weekend at home, and the highlight was when my brother posted a video of my nephew taking his first steps. The funny part is that even though Andrew has been pulling himself up and walking with support for months, he refused to put his hands down on the grass to stand up on his own. (But happily walked to mom after help getting up).

    I follow you but I admit to not knowing you well enough to know if you are a cat person or a dog person .. I’m hoping you’re a cat person so you’ll be amused by my story .. I have a cat (affectionately referred to as the devil cat) who likes to drag a blanket around the house. The blanket is a knit blanket made from the super thick wool ease. The blanket is big enough to cover my queen-sized bed. I have yet to figure out how he does it and have never even see him dragging it, but somehow he does it. Okay, maybe not so funny.. :)

    The other day I was trying out a new tote tutorial for a blog I followed. I decided to watche a few Zac Efron movies while doing so. I was so into Charlie St Cloud that when I sent to sew around the top of the tote, I sewed to the top completely together. I had to seam rip the whole thing and do it again. Luckily the tote came out great and the movie was just as good.

    My husband ran into a man he thought was his dentist, that he had an appt with in a few days to have several teeth pulled. So he said to him I am not looking forward to our meeting. Later he realized it wasn’t the dentist but the mortician he had seen. No wonder the guy looked surprized at his comment.

    something funny, hmmm…my I was putting my grandson to bed a few years ago and asked him if he wanted me to lay next to him for a while. He said, “sure, but wait Bubbi I have to scoot way, way over because you have a big booty”! Out of the mouths of Babes! Instant diet!

    I struggle with coming up with funny things to share…but I’ll try.

    I am a new sewer and have so far made only a few things (a beach bag, alterations on quite a few clothing pieces I already owned, and a baby quilt), so somehow I decided I could alter a bathing suit of mine. It was too big in the bottom. Uhm, let’s just saw that now… well, I won’t be wearing it ever. Teaches me to try to work with that difficult bathing suit fabric!

    Sarah says:

    You can take a read at my blog. My kids do funny things all the time. Recently my 6 year old told my 4 year old he doesn’t have to exercise yet (do pushups) because in his words, “Nathan, you’re not even to the point where girls are gonna like you!.”

    This weekend I went with my daughter, her fiance, and his mother to make wedding arrangements. At the wedding venue, the lady was asking about table overlays, aisle runner, chair sashes, and the other usual things you do for a wedding. When the planner stepped inside to get something, my daughter’s fiance looked at us and said, “I had no idea it took all of this to make a wedding happen. And by the way, I don’t even know what most of those words mean!” We doubled over laughing. By the way, he is a great guy and has actually been very helpful in the planning. But this comment was just too funny.

    Kim says:

    This weekend I was practicing doing applique. I took my first class Thursday evening. Anyway, my grandchildren were “helping” me by picking out their favorite fabric in my stash to make hearts with. I now have a train heart, in flannel no less, a pink and purple heart and a black heart. And I really don’t have them because they took them home. So I’ll need to make more to show my instructor for this Thursday’s class.

    And that was a peek into my life!

    Wow Amy, what a great prize! For years we had squirrels that would eat all the birdseed out of the bird feeder. One day I greased up the pole with crisco and went to the window to watch. Sure enough the squirrel made his appearance. He examined the pole and made a huge leap, thinking he would climb the pole. He slid down like a fireman. He sat up, looked at his chest and it was like he was saying to himself “What’s this mess!!”. It only deterred him for about 15 minutes ;-)

    My 20 month old daughter loves for everything to be clean. Last night she was eating crackers sitting on her daddy’s chest. She got crumbs all over him, so she crawled down off of him, left the room, and returned with a towel she had pulled out of the drawer in the kitchen. She proceeded to clean him off with the towel saying, “messy!” and then “all gone”.

    Miki says:

    My husband is a professional photographer and his studio is in our home. Our three year old granddaughter has loved to play behind the backdrop since she started walking, and she refers to the area as China. Yesterday, the backdrop was not up when she came over. She came in and the first words out of her mouth were, “This place is a mess. Where is China?” She then started finding all the pieces to put the backdrop back up and insisted that my husband help her get things back to their proper order. We had a hard time not laughing hysterically over her antics. She is so cute, but very bossy, as only a three year old can be.

    It wasn’t funny at the time, but yesterday a bird flew into our house & immediately flew upstairs! Talk about 2 people trying to corner a bird to coerce it back downstairs and out the front door, it had to be funny enough for a video! It ended with my husband with a golf club, trying to get it to come out from behind the TV where it was hiding scared to death! We about peed in our pants laughing when we finally convinced it to leave!

    The other day I was cleaning the house, and my two year old figured out how to open the sliding door in the kitchen. Great. So after he’d done it a dozen times and I’d run out in the yard after him just as many times I finally got serious with him and told him to knock it off. I could just SEE the wheels turning in his head and he looked at me, looked at my cleaning stuff and with his hands on the door handle he said, “Mama, you go in the other room, and, uhh, use that dustbuster.” I could just see his little mind thinking, “Yeah, and I’ll stay riiiight here…sure I will….” It was so funny! Thanks for the giveaway. :)

    When I was younger, my parents took us to a national forest. I had to go to the bathroom, and there was nothing around, so I ran away from my family to do my thing. When I was done, I turned around because I heard talking and there was a guy video taping a girl, with the camera pointed in my direction. I’m still waiting for it to show up on America’s funniest videos, or YouTube.

    From cuteoverload…

  153. 153

    I don’t know if this is funny or sad. I went thru the drive in at McDonalds for a litte treat…a small order of fries and a coke. The kid told me they could not give me a small order, as they were out of small bags. I suggested he give me a small amount in a bigger bag. Dead silence. Finally, I said never mind, I will just have a coke. He was SO relieved.
    I am an avid follower of your lovely blog, by the way. Thanks for all the inspiration.

    I’d tell you my most embarrassing story, because it’s rather funny – it involves my dad honking the car horn and a guy trying to kiss me – but sadly, it would take a phone call or conversation at a coffee house. :)

    Thank you for your wonderful blog. I have loved looking through all the quilts in the festival! When I get pregnant I tend to faint a lot. Once I was in a K-mart checking out at the checkout and started to faint. I grabbed onto the closest thing I could get my hands on which happened to be the checkout ladies elastic waisted stretch pants. Needless to say they came down with me!!

    I have so many people ask me how I find the time to quilt between being a wife, mom of two, work full time, school part time, room mom, one in scouts, one in gymnastics and a hubby that travels alot…..well I tell them I make the time to quilt because at least I am still “in” the house with them….the hard part is getting out to “SHOP” for fabric!! So I spend my lunch hour searching online….and I appreciate all the blogs I read to keep with the latest designs!! Thanks!!!

    Ok… As i am typing this comment my 3 and 6 year old boys are rolling down my stairs and as they arrived at the bottom i hear my 6 year old say: Oh sick, your bare butt is in my face! He acidentally grabbed a hold of the 3 year olds pajama bottoms thinking it would slow him down while heading down the stairs. They are both laughing their guts out!

  167. 167

    So I am a mommy to two boys. One is 2 1/2 years old and one is 6 months old. I am currently breastfeeding my little one. The other morning my 2 year old says, ” Mommy please come play blocks”. I tell him when his brother is done eatting I will play. My 2 year old calmly gets up, walks over, takes his hand and pulls my 6 month old away from my boob. He looks at me as if nothing has happened and say, “Ok mommy he is done eatting”. It was all I could do to not burst out into laughter. It was so funny. I am new to the blogging world and hope when they get a little older I can dedicate more time to my blog. In the meantime I am going to soak all the mommy time they give me. They are my smile morning, noon, and night! Thanks! Loving all the funny comments.

    The year after my grandpa passed away my 82 year old grandma was doing her taxes and she was getting so upset about how much money she was being taxed that she stated “Filing singly takes so much money from you… I’m going to need to get pregnant to have a dependent for next year” :)

    Something funny…let’s see.

    When I was younger I used to watch my Mom make Chocolate Chip cookies all the time and once I asked if I could make them. Well, I didn’t realize that the reason they pulled “white stuff” from 2 different containers was because 1 was Flour and the other was Sugar. I just pulled from 1 container…the sugar one and made an entire batch of cookies using only sugar. They were disgusting to say the least.

    Yesterday at a dinner at our son’s girlfriend’s family… I was asked by one of the aunts if I was my son’s sister! WHAT?????? Okay… my son is 26 for crying out loud. I almost died laughing. Obviously that aunt is my new best friend. : )

  178. 178

    Oh OH OH OH Pick ME pick ME!!!! (<—what? That's not funny?)

    Ok, so I just finished Elizabeth Hartman's Tokyo Subway Map quilt top (making for my husband) and my baby girl (Mia – 4 years old). Got soooo excited. She ooohed and ahhhhed like it was Christmas morning. She exclaimed, "Mommy. Daddy gonna share his blanket with EVERYBODY? Daddy gonna share his blanket with me?"

    Daddy made it clear that nobody gets to use his quilt. Everyday, Mia will go to Daddy to promise that she won't get his blanket dirty.

    I think Daddy's little girl will win this battle. What do you think?

    My dogs are desperate to go outside but with all the rain they get so wet, muddy and stinky. I drag them into the bathroom and dry them off with the hairdryer. Once they realize where we are going – they love it, turning thier heads like movie stars in a photo shoot.

    Funny story: My husband and I do not allow ourselves to have candles in the house anymore. My cat, Dante, has lit himself on fire on three separate occasions. First time, he tried to sniff the candle and lost some whiskers. We thought he’d learn his lesson, but no. Second time, he walked by it on the coffee table and lit his tail on fire. So, we decided to move the candles to the mantle. We were watching a movie one night and we see Dante leap onto the mantle and start siddling by the lit candle. We leap up as a fireball erupts on his side, grab him and throw him to the floor, and thump out the fire. I’m pretty sure my cat has no idea he was in any danger and his only complaint was that his parents were hitting him just for being on the mantle. At this point, no more candles, just electronic ones.

    The funny thing is that I’m a Literature major and it took someone else to show me the humor in my own version of Dante’s Inferno.

    My almost 2 little man is not a cuddler, and getting hugs from his is like pulling teeth some days. I’ve finally figured out how to get him to hug and cuddle. He likes squeezes, so now when I want a hug, I squeeze him and say “squeeze” and he squeezes me back. :-)

    Today as I was siting on the balcony, I was thinking about what to write here as a comment, because I would like to get some fabrics from the USA so much. At that moment a “huge luck” flew onto my head. In Hungary this means that you will have a lucky period in the upcoming days. I run to my notebook quickly, and tell you this story.

    my son had a “mom’s night” at preschool. they gave us these stories that were fill in the blanks and the teacher filled them in with what the kids said. Prior to this they hung on the wall in the hallway at the church were the preschool was. Here is a shortened version, but you will get the idea:

    The favorite meal my mom cooks is pancakes. I like it when she snuggles with me. Her favorite color is red. Her eyes are blue and she has brown hair. I like it when she plays games with me. She looks prettiest when she wears……(wait for it)……her underwear!

    Yup, that is what he put! The teachers thought it was hilarious of course. I asked him why he put that and he said he thought it would be funny. He has such a good sense of humor, even if it is at my expense!

    Oh gosh! This is tough and I NEED solids so badly too.

    Oldie but a goodie ~ and I hope the formatting is not going to make this horribly unreadable. *crossing my fingers*

    A man was driving along the highway when he saw the Easter Rabbit hopping across the middle of the road. He swerved to avoid hitting the rabbit, but unfortunately the Easter bunny jumped in front of the car and was struck by the car.

    The basket of eggs and candy, the rabbit was carrying, went flying all over the place.

    The driver, being a sensitive man, as well as an animal lover, pulled over to the side of the road, and got out to see what had become of the rabbit carrying the basket. Much to his dismay, the colorful rabbit was dead.
    The driver felt so awful, he began to cry.

    A woman driving down the highway saw the man crying on the side of the road and pulled over. She stepped out of her car and asked the man what was wrong. “I feel terrible”, he explained. “I accidentally hit the Easter rabbit and killed it. Children will be so disappointed. What should I do”?

    The woman told the man not worry. She knew what to do. She went to her car trunk and pulled out a spray can. She walked over to the dead, limp rabbit and sprayed the contents of the can onto the furry animal.
    Miraculously, the Easter rabbit can to life, jumped up, picked up the spilled eggs and candy, waved its paw at the two humans and hopped down the road. 50 yards further on, he turned again, waved and hopped another 50 yards. Again he waved.

    The man was astonished. He couldn’t figure out what the substance could be in the woman’s spray can. He ran over to the woman and asked, ‘What is in your spray can? What did you spray on the Easter rabbit”?

    The woman turned the can around so the man could read the label. It said:
    Hair Spray, Restores life to dead hair. Adds permanent wave”.

    My 2 1/2 year old woke up at 2:30 in the morning crying that I needed to do her hair!(and she hates having her hair done)She just kept repeating “Do my hair!” I finally took her into the bathroom, she looked in the mirror and said “I need a drink”. It was too funny. I just kept wondering what she was dreaming that set that off!

    Friday before Mother’s day my 3.5 year old daughter and I were at the grocery store and I decided to get some flowers. I asked her if she was buying me flowers for Mother’s day. So looked at me and said- No- I am getting them for me. For A____ (her name) day. :)

    Okay…one of my most favorite shows is How I Met Your Mother. Here’s a funny quote from that:

    Lily: [Lily sees Barney hitting on Claudia] Oh, hell. No!
    [grabs Barney by the ear and yanks him away from Claudia]

    Lily: Claudia is getting married tomorrow and so help me God if I catch you even so much as breathing the same air as her I will take those peanuts you’re trying to pass off as testicles and I will squeeze them so hard until your eyes pop out and then I’ll feed them to you like grapes.

    Barney: [confused] Wait… my eyes? Or my testicles?

    Lily: [pause, thinks about it] One of each!

    Thanks for an awesome give away!! Can I still say, “PICK ME!!!”? LOL

    My 2-year-old: “Do I look like a pwetty gu-wol?”

    At least she doesn’t have self esteem problems.

    Ok, I think this is funny but my fiance thinks it’s embarrassing and won’t let me tell anybody – yay for the internet!

    We got a new hose for the side of our house, to wash cars in the driveway, and after the first time we used it, we found out that it was too short. So, a few months later, back at the store we saw hoses again and decided to buy a longer one. Got it home and hooked it up. Next time he goes to wash the car… he discovered that we had actually bought the same size again.

    That’s when the real stupidity started – we headed off the store to buy a coupler so that we could hook the two hoses together and get a double length hose. So, standing in the garden section, we are looking at the hose connectors and wondering why they don’t seem to sell anything that would work. Then I spotted a little thing called a “spout extension” with a female fitting on one end and a male fitting on the other, and I pulled it down, exclaiming “this’ll work!” He looks at it and says “oh no, it needs to be male/male.” And I’m going “oh yeah, this is basically just a really short garden hose.” Cue crickets as we realize that garden hoses are male on one end and female on the other, and therefore can just screw together.

    Funny… but a little sad, with a bit of sweet. My 2.5 year old dislocated his elbow last night after a rousing game of “five little monkies jumping on a bed”. He was a total trouper. At the ER, he shared a room with a nice lady who had hurt her foot. As soon as his elbow was relocated, he waved really hard at her and said “I CAN SAY HI NOW!” Guess he couldn’t have waved with the other arm, lol!

    A week ago, my 18 month old neice was over playing with everything she could find and hid a few. I’ve been looking for a wallet ever since. So, yesterday I moved my kitchen table about a foot away from my kitchen island. This morning while I was having breakfast, I looked over from the table and from the new perspective noticed something under the kitchen island. It was a small jewelry bos and the the wallet. It really made my day just imagining what she was thinking when she hid them there. :)

    Ok, so my 18-month-old neice was over a week ago and was palying with everything and hid a few things. Fast forward a little to yesterday when I moved my kitchen table about a foot. This morning when I was eating breakfast, I looked over at my kitchen island and from the new perspective saw something underneath. It was a small jewelry box and wallet that my neice had been playing with and hidden. It really made my day to imagine what she must have been thinking when she hid them. :) Thanks for the chance to win a great giveaway.

    What a great giveaway. I love owls!! I could tell a bunch of things that I think are funny but that no one else would think of as funny. So I’ll just tell my nephew’s favorite joke (he just turned 5) What’s a pirate’s favorite resturant? AAARRRby’s.

She had just put the same fabric into her shopping cart on the same site. In fact, we both ordered 3 small fat quarter bundles of all the same fabrics. Great minds running amok!

The other day the weather finally dried out a bit and I caught him carrying one of the living room cushions out the back door so he could recline on the patio in comfort. Crazy pooch!

    Commenting from Australia on a beautiful spring day.

    After checking out something on my sewing table, my 4-year old decided he wanted to applique something today. And we did: we added some applique to a plain t-shirt for him. But he insisted on calling it “croquet” – no matter how many times I tried to convince him it was applique. :)

    Catherine says:

    Gosh, funny but not gross? I live in a house full of boys, so that’s a tough one.

    How about in the tenth grade when I was running to catch up with a friend and got pushed into a locker. My pants got caught on the lock and {due to either my intense speed or the cheapness of my pants}, they tore to the knee. Not “at” the knee – – down TO the knee.

    So, my parents made me ride the bus and I had no car at the school. My parents worked a half hour away, so there was no one to bring me clothes. No worries, said the secretary, just change into your gym shorts.

    Which were teeny tiny and stained.

    And I hadn’t shaved my legs in at least a week.

    And I sat next to my crush in the very next class.


    Not sure if that was funny, but it had to be better than “pick me, pick me!” ;)

    Would love to win.

    Something funny: I saw this quote today…something like “Birthdays are good for you. Research has shown that people who have more, live longer.” lol!

    Love the fabric! Here’s my story–
    I teach high school math. One of my colleagues is pregnant currently, and so the kids have babies on the brain. One of my students was talking to me, and out of nowhere, asked, “So, when are you going to get a baby?” As if they come from the baby store!

    The colors are so pretty, they remind me of all the flowers that are beginning to bloom right now. I’ve been interested in translating photos into quilts. These colors would be great to interpret garden photos.

    Hi Amy! Usually I have some really silly/witty thing to say but when asked – as you did – I go blank. Perhaps that’s funny. Not in a haha way but in a “isn’t that funny/weird?” way.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    Something funny…something funny…I once had to sit through a movie with a life-sized cut-out of Orlando Bloom as my date. Now that was pretty funny! My friends even bought him a ticket.

    I have a tuxedo cat I named Missy who doesn’t like anyone but me. She’s been known to offer her head for pets or scratches, and as soon as you touch her, she lashes out with claws extended! (You’ve been warned!) My grandson stayed over last weekend and left a sock behind. Missy found it, dragged it out to the middle of the living room floor, and used it for a pillow for her nap. She’s a weirdo ;D

    Sue says:

    The fabric is wonderful, it would make a great baby quilt for the new grand baby my son and daughter in law are due to have in October. It is their first child and as of now have decided not to find out the sex yet. So grandma has to make a gender neutral quilt, and I need to find a pattern to make it out of too

    My 3-yr-old Ben has been saying the funniest stuff lately, not sure where he gets it. The other day, we were putting our rainboots on (we live in Seattle)…

    Ben: Are these made of wubber?
    Me: Yes, they are. They’re rubber boots.
    Ben: Where does wubber come fwom?
    Me: It comes from a tree. From a rubber tree.
    Ben (totally floored): Are you FWEAKIN’ HECK?!

    My husband and I live in Boston and to get around we mainly use our scooter since it can be parked right on the sidewalk. It has been raining here ALL week (boo!), but that doesn’t stop us from scooting around. My husband decided to scoot to this tavern to play a video game since there was a break in the rain. It just so happened to be a place that has big brunch and there was a line outside the door for it. The tavern has large windows right in front where he went to park. As he was attempting to park the scooter his foot slipped on the kick stand and down went the scooter…and he followed suite. Not only did ALL of the people in the restaurant see him, but eveyrone in line did too. Naturally someone had to call more attention to the situation by yelling out to ask if he was okay. He was brave enough to attempt the parking again and then passed by all of the people as they watched and snickered at him. I was hoping (and still am) that his incident pops up on youtube.

    okay…funny story- my husband and I were just away for our anniversary and it was a rainy, cold and windy day so we decided to go do some shopping at some cute little stores. We went in one store and there was a younger guy behind the cash register and no one else in the store. we were heading out when the guy says, “Nasty day !”. My husband frowns at him and replies, “Yeah, you too “. The guy looks confused and kind of stammers, “Well, have a nice day” as we are going out the door. We are in the parking lot and I’m turning around to ask my husband what his problem was, when he stops and his eyes get big and he says, ” Ohhh ! He must have been talking about the weather !! “. I’m like, “Whatja think he was talking about ? You think he was telling you to have a nasty day ??” He says, “Well, I thought it was some kind of new punk saying or something”. Umm, okay honey…new kind of “punk-talk” ? We aren’t even 40 yet ! I guess you kind of had to be there, but boy is our teenage daughter loving teasing him about this one !

    I can’t think of anything funny because I have been blog hopping for hours. So I fond this joke that someone posted somewhere in cyber space and I will share that…

    This is about the best I can come up with:-
    Angus Broon of Glasgow comes to the little lady of the house, exclaiming, “Maggie, cud ya be sewin’ on a wee button that’s come off of me fly? I canny button me pants.”
    “Oh, Angus, . . . I’ve got me hands in the dishpan right now. Go up the stairs and see if Mrs. MacDonald could be helpin’ ya with it.”
    About five minutes later, there’s a terrible crash, a bang, a bit of yelling and the sound of a body falling down the stairs. Walking back in the door with a blackened eye and a bloody nose, comes Angus. The little lady looks at him and says, “My God, what in hell’s name happened to YOU? Did you ask her like I told you?”
    “Aye,” says Angus. “I asked her to sew on the wee button an’ she did. Everything was goin’ fine, but when she bent doon to bite off the wee thread, Mr. MacDonald walked in….”

    So today, my 5-year-old son was colouring a picture of a turtle. He says, “Mummy, I’m going to name him Frisky the Turtle.” Oh, what a cute name, I thought. Then this evening, he came to me and said, “Mummy, I’m going to give Frisky the Turtle a new name.”
    What a shame, I thought to myself, because I love the name Frisky for a turtle. “Yes,” he declared. “I’m going to call him Frisky the Head.” Wow, I didn’t see that one coming!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    I don’t have much funny today. But something not so funny. When I went to the bottom of the stairs to the basement this morning, there was a small puddle of water. Into the rec room I went to check out the new carpet and sure enough a pipe had sprung a leak and the whole room was flooded. DH was not happy. Nor was I. But what can you do except smile and get on with things.

    When my kitten Sheriti was 4 months old she was a tiny little girl only a bit over 2 pounds. At Christmas time I was filtering a batch of Chocolate Raspberry Port…sounds yummy right! Well Sheriti jumped onto my shoulder and launched herself headfirst into the bucket of port…OMG! OMG! I scooped her out and she went running, trailing rivers of port all over the carpet.. the hose from the electric filter is spraying port all over the walls…I’m chasing Sheriti who is hiding behind a chair licking herself. How do I explain that my kitten died from alcohol poisoning?..not going to happen! I finally grabbed her and ran to the bathroom, filled the sink with water and dunked her in and out about a hundred times. She was so insulted! I, on the other hand,could have used a large glass of port about then…but I had walls and carpet to clean. True story!! Fabric would ease the trauma considerably!

    Something funny……..I have four little girls and a wealth of stories to draw from but I can’t think of anything, oh wait! Our newest arrival came about five weeks ago and the day we came home from the hospital we went for lunch. In the middle f the restaurant my two and a half year old announces in a reasonably loud voice “That baby came out of your vagina”. It was a lovely moment that we shared with half the restaurant!

    Love the giveaway – thanks so much for the chance!!

    Last summer my 3 yr old son needed to go potty. I asked him to go inside through the garage. Not very long after that he came back out of the garage. I was puzzled becuase he did not actually have time to go inside, take care of business, and then come back out. I go into the garage-only to see that he had done his business on the car tire.

    Such beautiful fabric. Thanks for this fantastic giveaway!

    My personal favourite joke is……

    A frog telephones the Psychic Hotline and his Personal Psychic Advisor tells him: “You are going to meet a beautiful young girl who will want to know everything about you.”

    The frog is thrilled, “This is great! Will I meet her at a party?”

    “No,” says his Advisor, “in her biology class.”

    I think it’s rather cute! :D Hope you have a lovely day.

    Cute and funny – a sure way to get a smile at my house is to say “All done. Hat.” Which is what my darling daughter said one morning when she was finished eating her bowl of oatmeal. Maybe she thought oatmeal would make her hair grow?

    Great giveaway! I would hope you pick me but after going through all 3 lists for sew mama sew I can see why its boring to receive the same thing over and over again. I would suggest looking up comedian Jo Koy for entertainment. He is HILARIOUS! He might be a bit gross at time but I think he is amazing. Worth a try if you get bored :D

    Went for a “girl-dinner” yesterday and one of my best friends having a hard time with her to small boys told me: We spend the our children’s first year teaching them to walk and talk and the rest of their childhood telling them to sit down and shut up.
    Had never thought about it, but is so true. We had a big laugh!

    What a lovely giveaway! On the fun side (or not so much for me…) I have just managed to try and answer the phone and in the process wreck the lounge…spill my tea, break the phone, drop EVERYTHING that was on the dining table onto the floor AND scare the cat half to death – it’s looking to be a good day already. x

    I’m not sure that I’ve got something funny to say! It’s 10am, I’m at work in England and noone has made me a coffee in ages (no, I’m not some kind of despotic boss who expects people to make me coffee, it’s just that I bloody well made them one so it’s their turn). I’m bored already and alternating between entering giveaways, wondering how wide the white border on my crochet cushion should be and thinking about what I might eat next. Not funny, not smart, but not “pick me”!

    I’m sorry. I’ve got a lot of jokes I would like to share with you. But all of them are in german. And I think after translating they are not funny anymore. That is why I just got one of my favorite youtube-movies: It is just about a pug saying batman. Hope you like it!

    wonderful giveaway. thanks for the chance to win such a pretty layercake.

  490. 490

    Funny is not my strong suit, except that funny (unfortunate) things seem to happen to me. Just recently, I went to MA to visit my twin sister for our annual twin retreat. We drove 2 hours north from her house to her new vacation home, only to find that we had not brought the keys. It was 10 PM, so we put the back seat down in the car, and settled in for the night, figuring we’d figure something out in the morning. It turns out, a neighbor noticed us “loitering” and called the cops. It was embarrassing, but also a godsend, because this cop spent an hour with us trying to figure out how we could “break in” to my sister’s house. Ironic, but an hour later, we were in, all thanks to the men in blue.

    Knock knock
    Who there?
    Banana who?
    Banana split.
    Then he laughed hysterically, very cute but not really all that funny.

    Yesterday, my four-year-old son decided that he wanted to see what it was like to “have a baby in his tummy.” So, he stuffed his pants and shirt with as many of his stuffed animals as he could. He decided that it felt nice and snuggly. Too bad he didn’t have himself in his tummy – he was not nice and snuggly!

    Nicole C says:

    Thanks for the great giveaway. I’m not great with jokes, but I think it’s great when my daughter asks me how I know if she’s actually taken a nap or she just said she did. I just tell her, Mommas just know :)

    something funny… my daughter and niece had this conversation last Sunday:
    Nadia: I have cancer in this game.
    Emmie: Yeah, cuz you get better from that.
    N: No, you have cancer until you die!
    E: I think it’s hard & painful & difficult, but they can make it to go away.
    N: Nope, you have it forever, but sometimes it gets kinda better so it’s like you only have allergies.
    E: Well, let’s pick a sickness you can get all the way better from.
    N: OK, we’ll say I just have a broken spine.

    This is a great giveaway!

    Funny…well, whenever my chihuahua wants food she starts rubbing her head on the bed to get my other dog to fight with her. She does a crazy run around the house a few times. Then she sneaks up on my other dog and growls at her.

  513. 513

    Something funny? Well, yesterday my toddler thought it wa the funniest thing ever to say ‘Bum, bum, APPLE!” LOL! She was laughing so hard every time she said it! Her first joke ever – I am so proud! :)

    Well, the funniest thing I can think of is my little 2-year-old who’s sick today. She’s been throwing up (not funny, I know), which is a completely new occurrence for her, and when I try to get the bucket to her to avoid a mess, she says, “No hat!” because, of course, she’s always played with that bucket as a hat.

    Such pretties for giveaway! Something funny:
    I was standing in line with my sons at Walmart Sunday night and my youngest started saying: “Bikinis, zuchinnins, martinis” and I couldn’t figure out how my 6-year-old strung those together then I remembered it was in Katy Perry’s California Gurls. I didn’t think he was paying attention. It made me and my older son laugh.

    Hmm,…something funny….My son (at 12 months)heard my husband say my first name, Meagan and insisted on calling me “Meggie” for months. He would yell for me in the morning when he woke up,..”Daddy,..Meggie.” :) Thankfully I broke the habit by only reacting to Mommy. He calls me mommy now.

    Sherry Book says:

    Funny story: I wrote down my sister’s name for a giveaway at our local quilt guild earlier this month because she was busy at the time. Well, she won the drawing but said “that’s not my name, but it IS me” because I had written down her maiden name instead of her married name by mistake. She’s been married for 7 yrs, but by mistake I had written down the wrong last name. Of course she got me back on Mother’s Day with a card made out to me with MY maiden name. Ha ha

    Peggy W. says:

    I am not a very funny person. This is the only joke I remember and I hope it does border on the gross side or affend anyone.
    Why did the blonde stop nursing her baby? She was tired of boiling her nipples. My son added to that joke by saying “all she had to do was say come get them while they’re hot” He was only about 5 at the time. Thanks for the very generous giveaway. Your blog is on my favorites list.

    Anne Simonot says:

    Something funny? The first time I met my brother-in-law I made supper for him and my sister, dessert was a pie which needed cornstarch to thicken it. I used a generic container to store this in, but didn’t realize until months later that this was in fact a container in which my then-husband was storing his Dr Scholl’s foot powder. So the pie was thickened with foot powder! I told this story at their wedding – and apologized for trying to poison him.

    bailey says:

    I sat and stared at a Goldfish box trying to think of something funny, and about 10 minutes later I realized that the sound I was hearing in the background was not rain, but my dishwasher gasping for breath. However, I don’t really think that’s very funny – more sad, I would say. Either way, I’d actually start a quilt if I had a charm pack – my biggest issues are my inability to “finish” something once I’ve started it, and picking out the “best” coordinating fabrics. :)

    Leigh says:

    The funniest thing I’ve seen lately is my 6 month old nephew’s newly acquired crawling skills! He sort of leaps forward using the tips of his toes and his elbows. He hasn’t quite mastered getting his butt in the air yet. But he is SO proud of himself!

    Laura K. says:

    At last night’s Modern Quilt Guilt meeting, we had a long, hilarious discussion about “Hipster Craft Fairs.” This is when you go to a hugely hyped craft fair hoping to find great things and be inspired, but really all you find are “vintage upcycled” wall hanging (toilet seats with nickels glued on) and “upcycled lamp for decoration only” (a broken lamp full of jolly ranchers). I mean, of course there are super clever lego paintings, but they are a thousand dollars each, so that is out of the question. And the place is crawling with banjo and accordion playing twenty year olds with half their hair shaved off. Great for people watching, but SO not my scene.

    My husband heard my daughter’s ipod alarm go off, and when he retrieved it, we saw the reminder was “Tell Mom I love her”. Totally sweet, but we’re still mystified why she set it at 11 p.m.!

    Emily says:

    I was telling my 4 year-old son (for the 2nd or 3rd time) that he needed to clean up his toys. He looked me right in the eyes and said “mom, I thinks now would be a great time to sew something”. I think he wanted me to leave him alone! :-)

    Something funny…my daughter always comes up with things that make us laugh so hard. A few years back she was sitting in the car,we had just picked her up from a birthday party. Out of the blue she says “people think I’m great” Apparently someone must have thought she was alright at the party :)

    What a hoot it must be to read all these funny comments! (What a lame pun…)
    My kids tell me that it’s so great to tell me a joke, I have such a bad memory for jokes, each one sounds new to me even if I heard it a hundred times (this joke is on me)

    My 4 1/2 year old nephew is constantly asking for cake from the local supermarket. Loves the frosting on the cakes there. So my mom starting telling him he needs a job to pay for them. It’s getting a little expensive especially if they don’t have any of the little ones. So, the other day he woke up and found a dime on the floor. When mom went to check on him, he said that he had money and asked to buy his cake. Lol

    If fun waiting for what he’ll come up with next! Thanks for the qiveaway!

    Was playing Disney Princess Barbies with my daughter (3) yesterday, they princesses were threatened by a dragon (Rex from Toy Story, cast against type) and Snow White saved the day by KO’ing the dragon with a Bruce Lee Hi-ya karate chop (she may watch a lot of kung-fu and boxing movies with daddy). I thought it was very resourceful of Snow White ;)

    Melissa says:

    I went to the movie theater with a friend the other night. She was showing me her fancy popcorn buttering technique where she just gets a half bag of popcorn, takes it to the butter squirter, tosses with butter and then goes back to the counter to have them fill the rest of her bag with popcorn. She had set her drink down and when she walked away I moved the drink closer to me so other people could do their buttering. When my friend returned to the butter station there was a line so she bent down to take a drink of “her” soda that was sitting on the counter. It happened so quickly and I could see her face make that quizzical look when she thought something tasted strange and her eyes looked up at me across the counter and noticed I had two cups with me. Then the look of horror. One of the gals at the butter counter said, “Well, that was slightly creepy!” Of course my friend bought her a new drink but we just cracked up all night over it. It all happened in slow motion as I started waving at her to stop. Reminds me of that McDonald’s commercial that’s playing on tv lately.

    at my first dinner with the In-laws i made a lemon-meringue pie.
    everyone complemented me on the vanilla flakes in the cake, which was strange since i didn’t put any… only later, when washing the dishes, i realized it was the non-stick coting i accidentally scraped from the pot.
    i hope i at least made you smile

    Argh! I can never think of anything funny when I’m asked to! Erm, when my daughter was younger (3-ish), she would say “Knock-knock.” Of course we’d respond, “Who’s there?” and her answer was always “Burrito!” She’d burst out laughing. We have no idea where she got that or why. Sorry, not that funny unless you’re there.

    Thank you for the lovely giveaway!

    I currently have my 13 day old son laying on my chest. He was born at home 19 days early after just 3 hours of labor. It was intense and awesome and we’re glad we had planned to have him at home since I don’t think we would have made it to the hospital on time. Plus, my 3-year-old got to meet his little brother right away. I think if we ever have any more kids we are going with a homebirth with a midwife again all the way. We were so blessed by an uncomplicated labor and birth!

    Those fabrics are lovely, and I do still have to make a thank you gift for my midwife! Thanks for offering it up!

    I was telling one of my friends who doesn’t sew about my quilt project to which she responded, ” so what you are telling me is you cut up perfectly hood fabric sew it back together and pay more to make your own quilt than it cost to buy one in the store. Sound like a blast.” You have to love non-quilters.

    I can tell you something funny or sad?
    Okay both..
    I am just learning to sew and while I THOUGHT I could take on a task of a blanket I THOUGHT WRONG!
    I thought, ‘Self how hard can it be to sew a straight line 4 times?’ Okay sew it wasn’t sew straight, but it was going to be turned inside out right? wrong! I sewed one side inward and the other one faceing out!
    Sew needless to say I had to unpick all of the corners(yeah I forgot to leave a spot to turn it-so!)
    I finally got it done but I don’t DARE give it as a gift!!
    I also just want to say how hard it is for me to cut into gorgeous fabric…but I am because I have been practicing on all of my scraps(mistakes)!
    Thank you for the opportunity!

    We are having our ultrasound tomorrow to find out the sex of our baby, if its a girl would love this fabric for a cute baby quilt! The other day my 6yr old son told me I was getting “round” and then proceeded to show his Dad that he has a baby belly too. My husband just told him, boys don’t have the babies they just make them..luckily he ran off without asking any questions…

    wanda spain says:

    Happy belated birthday,it looks like you had a lot of fun with your friends. The material you are giving away is one that I have been trying to buy for 2 months. I just started quilting 2 months ago and it seems like m money goes for templates, thread, and fabric that is on sale the cheapest. I dont have a stash so I have to buy everything right away. That will change. I live in South Dakota and by winter I will have a stash, and projects lined up to do. I lived in Ms for 15 yrs and living in the cold in the winter turns me into a hermit. Not use to it anymore. I have joined you and I am looking forward to seeing what you will have in the future. Good luck and thanks for the chance of winning, this is fun too.

    usually my daughters think my sewing creations are cute but one day i was trying to use the remains of cut up jeans from my jean quilts. When they saw what I had made they were thinking 70’s…not a good thing mom. We had a good laugh.

    my daughters were not thinking my jean pocket purses were worth reproducing. then we went to a craft show just weeks after that and what did we see, jean pocket purses in more than one booth HA HA we all got another good laugh! Then this year my daughter’s husband’s grandma made their little daughter a jean book bag with what else but a jean pocket on it. Ha Ha again! The first thing her husband said when he saw the bag is well your mom will like the pocket! Ha HA again! Do you have a family joke that just makes you laugh when ever you see something that reminds you again of an incedent? I said at least when I die you will have something funny to remember me by. Ha Ha. I know this will not seem funny to all of you but for us it is a hoot!

    wow! this is an awesome giveaway! i’d love to win it, thanks so much for the chance!

    i’m really bad at telling jokes… but last week one of my parent’s cats got spooked and ran off in an unfamiliar area. we’ve all been out looking for him, posting on craigslist, putting up posters, etc. we’ve gotten a few calls from people who’ve seen him, and a few people mentioned that he seems to have made a friend, they keep seeing him with with a black cat. on friday my mom was out looking for him and she asked a little boy, he was about 7, if he’d seen her big grey cat with green eyes. the little boy looked at her all serious and said “i have, but i think he’s married though” ha! we all got such a kick out of that!

    hmmm funny…i think my 4 year old is hilarious…of course i’m her mom so i may be a little biased. lately she’s began to notice the difference b/n chubby and skinny…so i told her that it’s not nice to say out loud that someone is chubby. well the other day she went right up to someone who was pleasantly plump and asked them “are you skinny?” the man, who was very serious replied. “uh, no, i don’t believe that i am.” i about died.
    of course now, i think it was hilarious and sweetly innocent.

Today I received the final supply I need for a fascinator hat I am making for a friend (some Russian veiling) – and then I realized that I forgot to buy some large alligator clips so that she can wear it. No worries though – the sweet seller had included 3 of the very size I need in the package as a thank you gift!

    Feel like, since becoming a mother, most of the things that make me laugh are things my son does. I have a feeling these won’t be too funny for anyone else, but you did ask for something funny.
    We have a piano at home and my husbad was explaining to our 1.5 year old about the different notes. So now, every time my son asks to be put on the piano bench, he very ernestly bangs on all the notes while calling out ‘do do do’.

    A few weeks ago, well the day of the royal wedding, my kids were arguing in the kitchen. I went to see what was going on. Turns out that my seven year old son had told my ten year old daughter that the wedding had been postponed until the next day because Kate Middleton just remembered she had a doctors appointment. I couldn’t stop laughing!

    Hi – my husband and I recently trekked across Europe with a backpack – I stopped by a place in Germany to buy hand lotion – the cashier got a really funny look on her face and said, “are you sure you want diaper cream” – oh well, that probably would have helped chapped hands too

    Something funny…hmmm. Well, as I was making sloppy joes for dinner the other night my two-year old daughter asked what I was making. After telling her I was making sloppy joes she said “MMMM! That sounds amazing!” Not too funny, but kinda cute. :)

    Woo hoo, I’ve got a one in 726 chance! Man, this Sew Mama Sew give away is competitive stuff!

    I’m glad I’m not too late in joining in on your fun, that Hoot charm pack and Bella Solids Pastels Layer Cake would certainly help build my meager stash!

    Maybe next year I’ll be able to give something away, this year, however, I got nothin’.

    Thank you for your generosity, I’ll be following along in your sewing adventures. One of the great things about this give away is the discovery of so many wonderful blogs!!

    Alia Ghulam says:

    Hi Amy! Great little giveaway, thanks for the chance! Something funny? Two things I have for you. Today I was baking two sheet cakes for a commission and my hubby came home for lunch (how dare he) and he called me to come and have a look at something! It was a baby gecko (they are rampant here in this part of the world!) and he was on his back and dead and missing his little tail. He was a baby. This is NOT gross! He was so cute. i guess the funny part is my hub and I were arguing in a playful way on which of our two cats were the culprits. As God as my witness, both were looking at us discussing this topic and then turned to look at each other and then both ran off! hahahaha! I love my kitties! Second, I finally sat down to eat food as all morning I was eating chocolate, butter, icing, powdered sugar, peanut butter, icing, oops and more icing and was strolling through this giveaway bonanza and was leaving a comment and fell asleep! Then, after a million kkkkk’s, I just kept writing! hahaha!! Thanks again, Alia

    I love that It’s a Hoot fabric. Here’s something to hoot at: My son did one of those fill in the blank thing for Mother’s Day. Thinking he’s 8 and wears a 10, he told the teacher that I (age 35) wore a 38. Such a blow to my self esteem. :)

    The funniest thing I can come up with now is what my daughter told her father. While he was making breakfast, she said “Daddy, it’s simple math. I’m going to be 5 on my birthday, so I get 2 waffles!”. That one will keep me smiling all day… Thanks for the chance to win!

    I just gave a friend an outfit that someone passed onto me…it wasn’t my style. She wore it to church this weekend and went to her moms for lunch. She took off the jacket and her arms were purple! Her mom thought she wasn’t getting enough oxygen and wanted to take her to hospital! poor thing nearly had a stroke! This was a black velour outfit we guess that had never been washed? My friend had a good laugh about it…she couldn’t scrub all the dye off that day, so wore it again to evening service…Glad it wasn’t me :)

    I have 3 kids ages 5 and under, so some days just are a bit harder than others. Two days ago was a rough day, and in the middle of all the fits, siblings fighting, messes, etc., my 3-year-old son said to me, “Mom, don’t get mad. Get Glad.” I laughed so hard. And then decided to cut back on tv time.

    This was my first Market and I had a blast! I know I walked the entire circuit and still missed things as I see cute stuff on other people’s blogs. The most exciting moment of market for me was when I met Pokey Bolton from QA magazine and she knew who I was when she saw my name from my constant comments. :D Still not sure if I should be embarrassed or excited. I do like to comment! lol

    Becky says:

    I was in the gas station the other day and I heard someone honking the horn loudly. The woman in line in front of me thought for sure it was her daughters messing around and was getting frustrated. I turned to look and saw that it was my (too smart for her own good) dog trying to get me attention. It was funny!

    Keri Schorah says:

    GREAT BLOG!!! Love your giveaway too, but I guess everyone writes that….hmmm…something funny…..Where does a Forest Ranger go to get away from it all? If a fly has no wings, is it called a Walk? WOw they were funnier in my head! I’ll do better next time! Thanks for a chance to win something and be creative!!!

    Jenny says:

    Great giveaway, thanks for the chance to win! Something I find quite funny right now is the way my 2 year old talks, so many ordinary words sound like dirty words when she says them, for instance sock, fork, shirt, fish, they don’t sound so nice when she says them, we all get a good laugh though!

    My son was so cute at the Smithsonian on Monday…we went to see the ‘Hope Diamond’ and he wasn’t impressed. Instead he turned and rather loudly said of a huge piece of quartz, “This must be the Hope Diamond!” =) It was absolutely adorable!

    Thanks for a great giveaway!

    Kristin says:

    Oooh, such fun at Quilt Market, I’m totally jealous!!!

    Something funny, my family just receied a trampoline over the weekend and the kids were all jumping on it all day Saturday and Sunday and Monday (holiday weekend). When it was time to go to school Tuesday morning two of the four of them said they couldn’t go “because the trampoline makes my leggy jumping and I can’t walk anymore” in these concerned little faces! It was priceless, turns out they got a little seasick! Totally cracked me up in that “you know you’re a mom when…” sort of way! LOL

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    Anita says:

    I’ll try this again…it gave me an error, so hopefully it will work, if there are dups, sorry…

    This week, we visited the Smithsonian. We were all excited to glimpse the famous Hope Diamond. My 7 year old was less than impressed. He blurted out, “That’s ugly! This must be the Hope Diamond.” He turned to the nearest corner hosting a large white piece of Quartz, claiming that is must be the Hope diamond! =) It was really cute!

    Alright, so this may only work for me because I’m incredibly easily amused, but one of my favorite phrases to say is “Edited it.” Say it a couple of times, then make it better by saying the sentence “Ed edited it.” Makes me giggle like an idiot!

    Amanda says:

    Something funny: This morning my 4 y.o. daughter (with daddy’s help) sent me a text asking when I was going to be done making money. (Stemming of course from the whole “I don’t want you to go to work, mommy” and me: “but mommy needs to go to work to make money, sweetie”). Cutie.

    Keriann says:

    Funny?! I stripped down to nothing in 5 seconds flat and crawled on top of the kitchen table after a big bug fell out of the PJ pants I was wear?!!! I know you said nothing gross and at the time it was gross but really re-reading the story cracks me up! You can read the whole event here:

    I’m certain it’ll be worth a laugh or two!

    Sarah says:

    When we are talking about “adult stuff” (work etc.) in front of my daughter one day she asked what the heck we were talking about, We told her it was over her head…she got really mad at us and yelled “of course it is you guys are taller than me!” She still doesn’t get the expression and it still cracks me up :)

    Something funny – a couple of weeks ago my fifteen year old son ran in a marathon wearing a morph suit (a sort of a lycra tight affair which covers all of you, including your head) – before he even started he was absolutely roasted & he tried to drink out of a water bottle, by sucking through the lycra….completely unsuccessful, and totally hilarious to watch… love you my big son
    Hope this brings you a smile Amy

    Vicky says:

    I have never been able to remember jokes but my son had to learn a poem to take into school this week and this is what he chose from our penguin book of poetry for kids:
    The moon’s a great white football
    The sun’s a pound of butter
    The earth is going round the twist
    And I’m a little nutter!
    I’m not sure it’s quite what his teacher had in mind but it made me laugh anyway.

He asked me “have you tried them on already” and I had to tell him that “no, you are the one that needs to try them”. “ooh”, he sayed. He is a really cute man with alzheimers that we help now and then, he always makes us smile. Thank you for the chance to win.

    Anne says:

    Thank you so much for the great quilt festival. I love to see the quilt awesomeness from around the world and blog hop. Such a great idea.

    When you said write something funny what immediately sprung to mind is the great classic from Abbott and Costello when the two of them are playing baseball….with who, what, where on 1st, 2nd, 3rd base. I can watch this over and over and still laugh.

    Oh, your blog is so cool. I am going to subscribe to it in my reader so I don’t lose you. I am really inspired by those charms and the solids. I want to make a skirt out of charms. I have seeen a few of them, they are patchwork circle skirts. I have been saving them for a while, and cuting them too. It just occurred to me that having a selection of fabrics that matched each other thrown in there might be nice. Happy Quilting Fran

    Fran M says:

    Hopefully this isn’t a duplicate post. The first comment I made had an error in it, and came back in code, so I don’t think it worked. Anyway, I love charms because I am planning a patchwork circle skirt made from them. It might be nice to have some coordinating fabrics to work with.

    I can’t think of a joke, but something I find funny and adorable is the fact that my niece (about 20 mo.) loves bunnies lately, but she calls them “bummies”. It’s so fun to see her point to a bunny in a book or somewhere and say, “it’s a bummy!” or sometimes she likes to just hop up and down saying, “a bum a bum a bum a bum” and we’re not sure why, except that “bummies” hop
