Gasp!!!



Ruby's next address

Thank you all for your very kind words. I'm still floating on a cloud with how well Ruby did at the fair. Come October 23rd, that ribbon and my pictures will be all that will be left to show for all of that hard work. I know that I knit this with no errors because the intention was to donate it and on that day, Ruby will go to a good cause in a silent auction. I doubt I'll ever wear it, except maybe to take some photographs. It's way too delicate for me and I can guarantee I'll snag something the first time I put it on. In the meantime, after the fair Ruby will be on display at my local yarn store until she leaves for good.

I added a new clock here Friday. At the end of September, my brothers and I are going to see Mareseatoats in Charlottesville (our first reunion of the 4 of us together since Mom died) and my brother requested a countdown clock be placed on my blog. He doesn't ask for a lot, so I set out to find a cute gadget. Would you just look at how I personalized it?

Here's the question...should it stay or should I go and edit? I say stay because when I realized my spelling error, I laughed like crazy. I hope Northworst Airlines got our destination right.

Well, of course it should stay! After all, Virgina is certainly a place I'd like to spend some time in, as I'm sure most guys would.

I don't blame I need to plan a trip and plant a clock. Do you win any money for the blue ribbon?

Keep it exactly the way it is. Too funny, perfect for a family trip, which, by the way, sounds like a really fun idea.

I didn't know you would have to give Ruby up. It is a bit bitter sweet. I wish you could have kept her......

Have a great Sunday.

What mis spelling?.....

Stephanie V said...

Oh, I thought it was a great typo. My vote is to leave it...we know what you mean. I think.

Rositta said...

Leave it by all means. You're finally getting a vacation, yaeh... Donating Ruby is a very cool thing to do and hopefully it will fetch a ton of money for the cause. Love the countdown clock...ciao

How lovely of you to display it and make others want to knit little Rubies.
