Insert image of large polka dot chicken wildly flapping about and shouting "I'm late, I"m late"
Well does the title of this post give you a nice visual picture? Good, and welcome to my crazy blog. I do appreciate that Vicki of Two Bags Full has put together this blog hop to let me get acquainted with new blogs and new readers. If you hang in there through my ramblings there is a giveaway at the bottom! Or you can scroll down now - your choice!
Let me introduce myself -Hi, I'm carol - aka The Polka Dot Chicken and I'm a bit cracked! I love quilting and knitting and cross stitch and card making and jewelry making and other crafty pursuits that catch my attention. I am afflicted with crafter's ADHD - shiny stuff can send me off in a direction I didn't even know existed and it makes me happy. I'm a bit of a contradiction in some areas - I like my quilts bright and bold, I like samplers slight primitive and try to sneak in a chicken somewhere in the piece, I like my knitting to be fun and fairly mindless - striped sock yarn makes me giddy!
Here are some examples of the stuff I do -
quilts I've made...
cross stitch samplers I've completed...
So in honor of you stopping by and checking out my blog I'd like to host a giveaway. Here's the deal - leave me a comment on this post about what your favorite hobby is before February 15 at midnight EST. I will use one of those random number thingys and pick a winner and post it on February 15. Oh what will you win? I will send you a $25 gift certificate to the crafty shop of your choice, just be sure I can order the gift certificate online. Now I have lots of friends who tell me that when you don't have a blog it can be hard to leave a comment and therefore they don't win the giveaways. So if you are in that category and can't leave a comment on the blog I want you to send me an email at CFUN53@gmail.com and I will add you to the drawing. The easy way to send the email is to scroll down the right side of the blog to the little picture of me when I was a darling child and underneath it click on the link that says "View My Complete Profile". That opens the page and again underneath that photo of the adorable child I was you can see where it says Email - click on that.
I hope you will look at posts I've done and come back and visit me often. You don't have to be a follower to win the giveaway but I would appreciate it. You can follow my on Bloglovin' or click on my Followers button or whatever works best for you.
Thanks again for stopping by - now I'm off to visit new blogs too.
