In this year when we seem to especially need something fun, I am particularly happy to see the return of
Christmas in July!!!
and I hope you are as well.
For anyone new here, or who just needs a reminder of how it all works, here are the details.
Every Wednesday during July, I will make a post that will show a prize for that week. In order to be eligible to win said prize, there will be a question or questions to answer, and the comment must be on the post for that week to be considered and must be posted in the comments no later than 11:59 p.m. on the following Sunday. Winners will be announced on the Monday after.
So let's get started, shall we?
First up, here is the prize for Week 1:
Here we have a book that is really kind of a journal for your projects; it's geared towards knitting and crocheting but I'm guessing you could adapt it for your own needs. Knit Notes : Explore * Design * Create, by Nadine Curtis is a handy item to keep track of things, and with things happening on Ravelry causing people to have migraines, etc., it may be time to use paper and pencil to do that. I picked this up at the public library's book sale last summer. It was a whopping $2.00, because the elastic that goes around it was broken off; it's been a year, and I have never picked it up again, so I decided that maybe one of you might want the chance to give it a good home. What is hard to see in the photo due to my poor photographic skills is that in addition, there are some heart-shaped stitch markers that will come with it.
Here is the question I would like you to answer to have a chance in the drawing:
What is one of the funniest stories you can remember from a holiday when you were a kid? It doesn't have to be related to Christmas - it can be from Halloween, Purim, Arbor Day, July 4th - any holiday at all (though you can't say something like, "When I was 5, and my parents celebrated Ladybug Day ..." because even though Ladybug Day sounds awesome, I have never seen it on a calendar).
Please make sure that you leave your comments on this post only, no later than 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, July 5, 2020. That way, I will be able to find the comments all in one place. I will choose a winner through a random number generator and announce it on Monday, July 6, 2020.
And here it is, the first of July - what? Philadelphia was supposed to move into the controlled Green Phase of activities reopening after the stay-at-home orders for Covid-19 this coming Friday, but due to spikes in cases, that is now delayed. Not surprising, at least not to me, and personally, I'm glad they are working with an abundance of caution. So Yellow Phase it will be, at least for a bit longer.
Wear a mask, people!!!! It is seriously the minimum you can do for the rest of us.
