It was a dark and gloomy day in the scrapatch ...



Katniss was helping me sew on this dark and gloomy day.

Katniss says, " We need a pick me up. Time for a giveaway!"

I say to Katniss, "What are we giving away and why?"

Katniss says, "Who needs a reason?
Well, if you need to call it something call it a
Leap Year Giveaway."

I say ... "It's Leap Year?"

Katniss says, "Did you look at the calendar behind me?
It says there are 29 days in February this year.
That is called Leap Year."

I say, "How do you know about Leap Year?
You're a cat ... and cats can't talk."

Katniss says, " I'm a talking to you.  It think I was born on Leap Year."

I say, "Katniss, you are six years old.
Now you are just making this up.
We did rescue you from that shelter on a Leap Year,
so you are a Lucky Leap Year cat. 



Katniss says, "I might have been born on a Leap Year.
Remember that they did not know much about my life as a stray
before they grabbed me and stuck me in that cage.
I am lucky.  Life in the scrapatch is warm and quilty.
  So how about we give this away.
Didn't you say this was for a giveaway?"

I say, "I did, but I was thinking September."

Katniss says, " You are just hoarding fabric.
Give it away now and make someone else's day brighter, too."

I say, "Okay."

So ...

Katniss says, 
"It is Giveaway Time!!!"

That charm pack looks adorable and would be great in a grandkid's quilt. They all love coming and getting a ride on grandpa's tractor. Katniss is gorgeous.
