Holy Cows!! WITB: Highlights and Showstoppers 20/08/2019

Posted by Reneé Ettia on

Hello Yarnies <3

Well it's official! News of the amazing WITB has spread cross-species! 

Six curious cows came strolling into Yarnish HQ grounds this afternoon, no doubt in search of some yarn. Why else would they come? 

Little birdies also found their home at yarn central! I seriously cannot stand how sweet they are! (^▽^)

And what do you do when the animals march in?

Panic? Never!

Alert the authorities? Hmmm...maybe later...

Go live? Absolutely!

In case you missed the adorable little segment by Mrs Yarnish and The Clumsy Craft Lady, Shelby. Make sure you check it out on the Yarnish Community Facebook Group. It certainly made me smile... and, of course, yell and point at the phone 'coooowwss'!  ヽ(^◇^*)/

Now we better get into it! Quickly, before the animals snap up everything!!

Tonight's episode is brought to you by Old MacDonald. Where are you, Sir? You have lost a few animals! 

Holy Cow - it’s been a crazy day today!

First, Mrs Yarnish accidentally took the wrong medication this morning (I believe it was a sleeping tablet...whoops!)

Adorable new residents decided to call Yarnish HQ home, including little chirpy birds! And if you caught my designer spotlight post last week on the BotaniCAL you would have seen that I predicted this would happen hehe ฅ(*°ω°*ฅ)
