A Call To Action; and, a Funky New Yarn?

I’ve made a few good friends amongst you, my readers. You make me laugh, you’re generally there for me whenever I need you. Thank you!

It’s not often I get to do a little favor in return, but an opportunity arose today. Leesa dropped me an e-mail telling of a contest over at Avenue Beads, where they sell “Unique Handmade Art Glass.” Seems they have a new colorway of art glass shards they’re planning to sell, and they’re having a contest to name it.

Leesa made it into the final poll with the name Amphibian. Remember that name, folks, it’ll be important in a minute. Amphibian. There are ten names being voted on to find a winner, and Leesa’s is one of them. A M P H I B I A N.

If you would like to help Leesa, you can go to Avenue Beads at this link:


and cast your vote. Voting ends at 11:59 p.m. on June 21 (not sure what time zone that is), so don’t hesitate. Vote for Amphibian today!

(While you’re there, be sure to look around the Avenue Beads site – they do some really nice glass work!)

Good luck to you, Leesa!

A Rattie Yarn

This is a little fuzzy because I took it with my phone, but look at the new yarn that I found in my stash!

Rattie Yarn!

I wonder what size needles I should use?

Thanks for posting my contest plea, Jen! And thanks to all who take the time to go vote!

About that new yarn… Hmmm… not sure on the needle size, but I can’t wait to see what you make from it! (lol)

I voted! So far amphibian is in the #2 position. Here’s hoping it gets enough votes. As for the new yarn…I’m not sure what size needles, but I’m pretty sure they should be a nice metal needle. I’m thinking that wood or bamboo needles will probably not last very long 🙂

I’ll be voting. I had to say what a cute stash addition you’ve got there! I bet the mileage is just ferocious.

That is the funniest thing I’ve seen since the local 7-11 employee’s name was “Balwinder”! Nice yarn 😉

[…] You guys just totally rock! When I posted about our friend Leesa’s contest yesterday, her entry stood at a tie for fifth place. In less than twenty-four hours, your votes have put her in first place! That is just totally awesome! […]
