It’s that time again, kids.
When Wendy asks you to do work for her in the guise of a contest.
Here’s what you gotta do.
At the end of last month, Roi said this in my comments:
When I notice questions being asked of you that have been asked numerous times before – espeically the ones I’ve asked previously – I wonder if it would help you to have a “Frequently Asked Questions” section in your blog. You could have us every-day readers do the work for you – come up with a list of those questions? Could even be combined with a contest???
“What a great idea!” thought I.
So that’s the contest. Email me (via the email link in the sidebar) a question and answer for my soon to be created FAQ page. You might notice that there is a searhc box in my sidebar — you can find my answers to common questions by searching through my blog.
Please email your entries to me by 5:00pm EST Friday, November 14, 2003 (one entry per person, please) to be included in the drawing for this:
This is The Knitter’s Handy Book of Patterns: Basic Designs in Multiple Sizes & Gauges by Ann Budd. The book was generously donated by Catherine in California (also known to some of you as “3c”).
Some Mouse-a-thon News
Yes, Ian and I are still bagging mice and taking them over to Capital Animal Care. We brought two shopping bags full over to Barbara on Saturday. We’ve still got 100 or so mice to bag, and that’ll finish up the last delivery of two shopping bags full, which we’ll do next weekend. I know there are a few more mice out there coming in, so we’ll bring thos over as we get them.
Apparently the mousies are big sellers! Barbara told me about a man who bought one for his cat, who is terminally ill and only has a few weeks left to live. The man has since told her that this mouse was his kitty’s favorite toy. so you guys can feel very proud of yourselves — not only have the mice raised money for the rescue organization, but in this case, and possibly more, a mousie has brought comfort to an ailing kitty.
A number of you have emailed me to ask if I’m going to have another mouse-a-thon next year. I know that I’ve got some interest from the emails — what do the rest of you think? I’m game if you guys are! We can do another one next summer, complete with raffle prizes, if you guys are interested.
I got a good bit done on Amphora over the weekend. Here it is:
Lucy seems impressed, doesn’t she?
