The Monday Smile

Good Morning everyone, I hope all you mums had a lovely Mothers Day yesterday. 
 I have two things to make you smile this week, the first one is for all the stash-buster's, our challenge has been recognised by Lets knit magazine, they have done a feature on stash-busting and they have mentioned our challenge.

Who knows we may get more stash-busters wanting to join in the stash-busting fun, the more that join in the more idea's we will have.  There are some lovely idea's in the magazine by the way and there is a pretty jumper pattern I would love to make, but I haven't made anything for myself for ages and I'm not sure if I will have the patience to complete it... will have to think about it. :)

The second smile is a bit naughty again I'm afraid but it made me laugh out loud when I read it so I hope it does the same for you, have a happy week!

The Hypnotist Accident
The town fathers were looking for a way to increase attendance and participation at their regular meetings. One member suggested bringing in a hypnotist. The officials agreed, a famous hypnotist was hired, publicity distributed, and everyone was pleased.
A few weeks later the meeting hall was packed, and the town's people sat fascinated as the hypnotist withdrew a pocket watch. The hypnotist began chanting... "Watch the watch, watch the watch, watch the watch..."
The crowd became mesmerized as the watch swayed back and forth, light gleaming off its polished surface. Hundreds of pairs of eyes followed the swaying watch, until suddenly the hypnotist's fingers slipped and the watch fell to the floor...
"Shit" said the hypnotist.

It took three weeks to clean up the town hall.
