Originally, I thought this would be a fun activity for Sewing Buddies to do together, but the more I mulled it over, the more I wanted to open it up to everyone! So, for your Monday evening enjoyment, a QUIZ. Sewing Buddies: you have extra incentive to participate–read on for details!
I should let you know: I am a raging nerd. This is likely no surprise to the vast majority of you. As a nerd, I love to challenge myself. Jeopardy? Huge competitive sport in my house. Trivial Pursuit? We actually have family rules and individual handicaps (like: my mother and I are no longer allowed to be on the same team–too many sore losers, I say). So a quiz a la Pioneer Woman? I am all kinds of down with that.
The rules are pretty simple: first response with all the correct answers wins! To open it up to as many folks as possible, I’m actually choosing THREE winners (again, similar to how the Pioneer Woman does her quizzes): first response with ALL the correct answers wins; first PAIR of Sewing Buddies who BOTH give all correct answers wins (Buddies must each answer individually; I’ll keep track of who belongs with whom); and one response will be randomly selected from ALL responses for a wild card win. If you’re keeping track, that makes FOUR winners total. (And: This is not a math quiz.)
Answers should be left in the comments. Please, only ONE entry per contestant. You will be able to see your own answers, but everyone else’s will be hidden from view until after the quiz is completed and the winners announced (keeps it more interesting, you know). Quiz is open until Tuesday evening at 7 pm EST; winners will be announced Wednesday here on the blog.
I may have mentioned my book. It comes out in a scant four weeks (jubilee!), and I am anxiously awaiting a shipment of copies from the warehouse as we speak. These are my baby, and I won’t be handing them out all willy-nilly. Gracious, no. But I WILL bestow them upon the worthy, which is to say, upon winners!
The first response with all correct answers wins a copy of Stitch by Stitch. The randomly selected response with all correct answers wins a grab bag of fat quarters from my very own stash–8 fat quarters in all. The Sewing Buddy pair who both answer correctly first will each win BOTH–one copy of the book plus a bundle of fat quarters. Woot! Go, Sewing Buddies!
OK, y’all. This is going to be seriously fun. Ready? Go!
Good luck, everyone!
