Because I couldn't make this up if I tried....

I have loads to say because I've been a traveling fool & I want to share my adventures with you, but I had to show you this.  I couldn't make this up if I tried.  And don't I wish I had because people would be handing my money faster than I could count it.  There is a new Wii game called Kirby's Epic Yarn.  You heard me.


I resisted for several days even.  Yesterday afternoon I couldn't stand it anymore.  I had done responsible house work & grocery shopping & not fun stuff most of the day & I caved.  I started playing & I took some screen shot pictures because again, I couldn't make this up.

Kirbys epic yarn
There is MAGIC YARN.  We already knew that, but for it to go public is pretty big news as far as I'm concerned.

And yes, they are in Quilty Square.  Bwhahahahahaha.

Kirby's epic yarn
See, yarn does fix everything.

And there is a fabric store!  Run by a guy named Loomis Woole.

There are buttons & zippers & felted fabric & you unravel the enemies & collect beads - it's such a knitters dream that I don't even know what to do with myself.  OH OH - and the bad guy has evil knitting needles, but I didn't have my camera out when they showed them.  On top of that, it's getting great reviews from the gaming community as a whole, so it's not just us. 

If you have a Wii, go get it right this second!!!!!

Commercial over.

How excited was I when I went to the Texas State Fair yesterday & saw this:

As it turns out, I DO rock, it wasn't just in my head!  Although 3rd....hmmppphhhhh.  I won't even go there because it will just make me sound bitter.

YAY ME!  As my hubby told me tonight, I am clever, but I'm not modest. (Did I mention that I love that man?)

Next time I'm going to tell you all about my last minute surprise trip to the Taos Wool Festival.  It was fabulous!

Oh, and PS - get that damn stupid can off my shawl please!!!!!! Thank you. (no offense to Robert whatever your name is because I'm sure you are a lovely person).
