A Give Away...& Enzo, the Chicken!

For those of you who have joined the Woolie in the last year...you may not know about my infamous cooking ability.  I do, in fact cook...but, have a long history of catastrophe in the kitchen.  Exploding hard boiled eggs, kitchens on fire, casseroles that cook up with a hot pink color, desserts with the sugar left out...oh yeah, I do have a long history in the kitchen.  The thing is none of my mishaps have gotten so much as a whimper out of Enzo.  Until a couple of weeks ago.  The builder had installed per building codes a very sensitive  smoke alarm.  Me, I don't need a sensitive alarm...I need a alarm that goes off only and I mean only if the curtains catch on fire.  Unfortunately, when the alarm went off it had a really high pitched sound which hurt Enzo's ears and on top of that a woman's voice yells Fire, Fire, Fire...oh yeah my smoke alarms yells.

The result is my dog has morphed into a chicken.  Now, anytime I even go in the kitchen area he runs down the hallway and stares at me.




This is the face of a new breed of chicken...jeesh...I was just cooking...


Remember this fabulous wall hanging made my Bonnie Sullivan of All Through The Night that I purchased from her at the Buggy Barn Show...


Well...it means I don't need this pattern anymore!!!  And...it also means one of you may be the winner!  Just leave a comment on this post that you are interested and if you would be so kind to be a registered follower!


Although it is September I did actually finish this UFO, quilted, bound on August 30th!  So now I am caught up on my commitment to finish a UFO every month.  Now the question is what to finish for Sept...hummm.

  2. My smoke alarm goes off regularly when I'm cooking but I'd love one that actually yelled 'FIRE'

  5. Poor Enzo! Whatever will he do when the backup battery on the smoke alarm decides to let you know it's fading? Mine do random shrieks in the middle of the night and it sends the cats into frantic hiding mode--because usually there will be two or three of them at once! Yeah, my smoke alarms hate me. Enzo and I are united in our distrust of them!

  6. How about the smoke alarm tied to house alarm going off and the police showing up with guns in hand as the code was wrong it said "robbery in progress". We had the doors and windows open trying to get rid of the smoke from the turkey grease splattering in the oven.

  11. That happen to us but no dog in the house, we had install a new smoke alarm plus some other things, next day at 4:30am it went off. First look in every room nothing and then outside in the dark. At 6am I called the company, I was not a happy person because being retired I use the clock for a night light and I was thinking I was still working. He came right down and turn it off and put a new one in again. Thanks for the giveaway love it. Sally

  18. Aww poor Enzo~ he looks very worried. :-) I've never heard of a talking smoke alarm~ that is funny.
    Your turkey looks great! I love the snow angel! Snowmen are so me! Thanks for the chance!

  19. How could you? Poor Enzo! That's his sad face for sure, hoping he can learn to trust you again (teasing!) Some delicious smells wafting his way from the kitchen will bring him back, even if he has to crawl in on his tummy! Count me in on the giveaway, please!

  22. Although the Snowman sports wings and is most likely meant to be "angelic", I am a faery lover...SEW...he appears to me to look more like a Snow Faery! I would love to invite this creature into my realm of the Fae...:0)!!!

  39. I can't tell you how much I enjoy reading you each weekday. The picture of Enzo is hysterical and I can see the fear. But then if I heard that alarm, you'd probably see fear in my eyes too. I would really like to have the pattern, so throw my name in the bowl.

  40. I just had the best chuckle and then sent my son a copy of the first section of this blog entry. My "cooking skills" have been a long-time joke in our house. From 1st grade thru 8th, when kids had to write the obligatory "about me and my family" essay, everyone of them included the fact that I can't cook. My son has become a great cook...thru self-preservation! I would definitely not like that alarm either...and I agree, curtains on fire is a much more reasonable reason for it to go off! Poor Enzo... my cat hasn't gone so far as to leave the kitchen area when I go it, but I do get "the look" when I screw up - she's pretty disgusted with me! I'm just grateful for frozen foods and pre-cooked chicken...and my crockpot! Bonnie's patterns are adorable and I love that Snowlady Angel!

  41. Oh, I would love the Bonnie pattern, Snow Angel!!! I love your finish - it makes me think I should start a(nother) project! Thanks so much for the chance; if I win it, then I know that I SHOULD start something new :) Thanks again! and Happy Stitching (& happy cooking). PS- I am a follower now - always before followed you thru Quilting Daze blog

  45. Poor Enzo. I'm sure, over time, he'll get over that shrieking noise. Probably best if you stay out of the kitchen.lol

  47. I just signed up for your blog recently and am really enjoying it. My dream is to visit Oregon and all the quilt shops in your area. I live in Minnesota and am looking forward to the fall and winter months coming up - always means more quilting time for me.

  48. I love snowmen and well .... to have a snow angel would be just awesome!
    At least you don't have your smoke alarm going off at 4 am. We are currently inundated with the smoke from Yosemite. :/

  50. Angels patterns aren't very popular anymore and I need to make something with an angel for a Christmas exchange this year. Winning your pattern would certainly be a great help! (smile)
