'It's Friday, it's 5 o'clock and it's........Crackerjack!!!!!!!!!!'
Ahem. No it's not - but a metaphorical prize for those who recognise the immortal words above (and an extra pat on the back for the names of any three of the presenters). And we don't feel old at all after that, do we? No. Yikes!
Try again. 'It's Saturday, it's 10 o'clock and it's........the Christmas Quiltalong!' Hurrah! Now you might not win cabbages on this show, kids*, but we are going to have a CRACKERJACK of a weekend! (see what I did there?)
You are all invited to come over to my place for a weekend of SEWING and - I hope - a great deal of seasonal fun. We have a CHALLENGE to take up, a little Christmas baking, something to stretch the braincells - and a heartfelt plea to be answered!
Of course, by 'seasonal', I mean Christmas - though you might not know it in the middle of July. Here in the UK we have a proper Summer going on - wall to wall sunshine today is due to be the hottest day of the year with temps up to 29C! This is what it looks like out of my attic room window at the mo.
I've just thought! OzSue has this sort of weather at Christmas all the time - wow! Weird (for those of us with snowmen and roaring fires at Christmas), but I love how different our experiences of the Festive Season are! More of that later........
In the meantime, there is sewing afoot!! Have you taken up the gauntlet of QuiltSue's challenge?? Can you come up with a Christmas project not measuring more that 96" around the edge with USES NEITHER RED NOR GREEN FABRIC - boy!
Joanna's place! But you can always use this time to work on any of your Christmas projects - there's nothing like being ahead of the game to give you that smug feeling in December!
Come and join us? Do say you will!
I've set up a Mr Linky on the QAL page - sign up and join the fun!
*as an aside, if you look at youtube vids of this quiz/games show for 10 year olds, you'll see what facts the children were expected to know. I like to think I am bright enough, but I struggled on the gen knowledge questions. Are we dumbing down our education system? Hmm.
