"T" Stands for . . . .Winners?

Thanks so much for all the great "T" words!

One of my favorite things about giveaways is how I get to know the folks who drop by even better. For Example, this time I learned that Bea has two daughters that live in Tahiti, Jen's favorite color is orange, hence her "T" word of tangerine, and Amy likes turtles, not the candy kind! I also learned that Melissa built a trebuchet in high school and Wanda meets her quilt group every Tuesday!

Here's a little summary of the "T" words, 26 folks left comments about "T" first names, 6 folks about "T" last names. Time was the most popular "T" word, 16 of those, thanks/thankful came in second with 11 mentions and tea came in third with 8.

Some of the "T" words made me think, some made me smile, some made me hungry. Here they are, something to think about as you make your Schnibbles pattern, "T" Stands for Thelma by Carrie Nelson for Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.

Anytime I blog about my grand dog Tucker, I always get a few questions about his heritage and comments about those ears. Well I have an ear update!



His right ear has flopped over, just the right ear, but he can push it back up when he's on high alert! The left ear always stays up. Regarding his breed, this dog was found wondering the streets of Los Angles when he was just a pup, my daughter adopted him from a rescue group. We suspect he may have some rat terrier, dachshund, and chihuahua in him, we have no idea where the ears came from! He's fearless, he'll jump from the top of the couch, to the dinning room table to the kitchen island then down again. But then, if you grew up on the streets on Los Angles you would be fearless too!

Whew, now that all the giveaway hoopla is over, I can blog about how I spent my Leap Day Sewing Day, stop back by!

  1. It is possible your sweet guy Tucker has Papillion in him. My girlfriend has a Papillon and one of the breed characteristics is big butterfly ears, hence the name. The bottom line however is it really does not matter what he is because he is just adorable with a Mom who loves him.
