Lizzy House's long anticipated Pearl Bracelets line finally came out earlier this month, and to celebrate the holiday season with you fantastic readers, Caitlin and I have put together a 1/2 yard bundle for one of you to win! As we all know, I'm rather partial to cool colors, and it is winter (well, at least in the rest of the country...it's a balmy 65 degrees here in New Orleans), so I picked 9 different shades of blues, purples, and greens to celebrate seasonal sewing :)
Caitlin currently has the Pearl Bracelet line in her shop I Don't Do Dishes for the uber-reasonable price of $8.25/yd, as well as bundles of the entire line - woot! And for the Tula Pink fans out there, keep your eyes peeled next month because she's going to be teaming up with Mara for an Anchor's Away QAL!

And speaking of holiday sewing, my Etsy shop was hopping this month, so I'm just now starting on my personal holiday sewing. Thankfully I got all the big stuff out of the way a few weeks back, but all my smaller gifts like bags and stocking stuffers are still on the To-Do List. And did I mention we're leaving for Kentucky for a week on Saturday morning? Eek! And did I also mention I'm coming down with the flu after struggling with a cold for two weeks, and it's that time of the month? Yeah...I'm about as friendly as a badger in a burlap sack right now. Which is not friendly at all, as my Great Uncle Hilliard could tell you.

Yes, that is actually my great uncle's name.
And yes, his four brothers once handed him a burlap sack that, unbeknownst to him, contained a badger. He was up on a horse, and they gave it to him and told him to toss it over his shoulder. Naturally, it bit him in the back through the sack. And he screamed and flung it involuntarily....whereupon it caught on the saddle near his leg, and the badger bit him again on the inner thigh. That's mountain humor for you. My grandpa nearly cried he was laughing so hard when he first told me that story, and I know I should have been horrified by it as a child...but I couldn't help but think he kind of had it coming, because who blindly accepts a burlap sack of unknown contents from their 4 teenage brothers? I'm sure there's a life lesson in there somewhere.
And I'm going to stop typing now, because somehow we've gone from Pearl Bracelet bundles to badgers. I blame the DayQuil.
