Joke's on me !

Yep, I was totally cracking myself up over this......

I wordled and steam-a-seamed and stitched and stitched....and worked on my chain stitch....and then gave it a gentle squirt to remove the water soluble pen......

and the bloody thing ran.........................

Ironic really........

  4. Oh no! Is bother a swear word? Don't tell all the mums that read Winnie the Pooh to their kids every night!

  7. Oh no! Could you wash it with that dye grabber stuff? Very clear and explicit I know, but surely you know what I mean? Love the idea though (but not in my house - can't have the kids picking that up at home!)

  8. Hmmmm got a few extra to add to that :s
    I would be flat broke putting money into a jar just from the kids saying fart without any other words..Even my sweet little innocent 19 month old daughter says fart!!

  10. What a bugga about it running. Otherwise it is brilliant!! Apparently I owe the swear jar here so much money I will never repay it and when I am in my sewing room the girls have yelled 'swear jar' at me from the other room a few times.
    You should get that fabric printed and sell it - you'd make a fortune.

  11. that swear jar is totally awsome. I so need one of those.

  12. Bugger!!!!
    Have you tried "Frixion" pens?? They're made by Pilot, a friend just told me about them and the ink disappears as soon as you iron it. Just like magic!! They're only about $4 or $5 at the newsagent.
    Hugs,

  13. I read on the Yarn Harlot recently that she went outside and layed on the road for a while recently when she did something stupid. LOL

  14. squirt the whole thing so they all run slightly?

    I'm not sure I approve of such language, and I'm not showing this to my mother. We is refined at my house.

    (there isn't a font for stuck up scottish accent, shame)

  15. Oh what a bugger of a thing after all the hard work has been done...
    :(

    ReplyDelete
  16. Well it stinks that it ran like that. But it is good for a laugh!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oooooo Bugger!! I LOVE it, the appliqué not the mistake :-)

  18. Don't you feel like such a bumface when sh*t like that happens?

    ReplyDelete
  19. You made me laugh and made my day! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Doesn't that figure! Thanks for the laugh!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh no, irritating! love the project though, so funny!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hopefully this laugh of the day will help me to not have to add a quarter to the jar as the day progress and a try to make a #%¥€%#%-oops a quarter-vinyl fireman stupid (another quarter) Halloween costume raincoat.

  23. I'm guessing there were quite a few additions to the Swear Jar at that very moment.

    Poor dear -- thanks for sharing the chuckle!

    ReplyDelete
  24. You should add soem more water and make it look like you meant it!

    ReplyDelete
  25. It is ironic but try using bi-carb in the spray bottle, I'm reliably informed that it works..!!

  26. There are a couple of choice words missing from your jar!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh the Irony!!!!
    I bet you could have added a few more words to that jar!!

    You know, I was told years ago, if a fabric runs once, it'll run again so you can generally 'save it'.. this happened to me, wash the sucker with an old nappy and voila! no more run/ruined fabric!

    still giggling... cause $hit like that happens to me, I have a $hit happens magnet!

  28. Hhmmm.... back in the 70's my mother would have said "Say naughty words and God will punish you". LOL - consider yourself punished Jod!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. You made me laugh out loud again. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  30. you are always good for a chuckle and that you have given me today!

  31. he he he he he he...... What a bugger... ;)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Can you make it part of the design!!??

    ReplyDelete
  33. I had one of those days today too. Only yours is much funnier. Maybe that's because it's not me...

    ReplyDelete
  34. Love it!
    Could it have been a more perfect project for that to happen!?!?!?
    You wouldn't have had to say anything you could have just pointed.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I wonder how much your 'real' swear jar has in it!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I don't see bugger in there, bet it's there now!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. If you keep squirting water on it, it will eventually disappear. But, I am assuming you have already done that?

    ReplyDelete
  38. ZOMG the irony is hilarious!!!!!

    (sorry about your booboo though!)

    ReplyDelete
  39. *snork* My jar could teach your jar a word or 2.

  40. Oh poo! Damnan'buggerit! Sodding, pen, why can't it just walk like others? Ooohhh no, it's got to run...

    I do like that jar tho'... might need one just to keep spare swearwords in... in case I run out.

    Ok, that's not entirely likely, 'hem, 'hem!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Ooooohhhh! So ironic! Bumcheeks!!!! Lots of love, Amanda xxx

  42. Too funny! I've just read several of your blog posts and with each one I have laughed out loud, my youngun keeps saying, "what mum?" She doesn't understand how I can be laughing at innanimate objects such as my monitor! Too funny, Jod. And I just love those knights of the Sewing table (crack up) complete with blog-ready alapecia! You're precious.

    Chat soon!

  43. Oh what a fabulous swear jar! Why don't you try something like Vanish powder (do you have Vanish down there?) If you rub some on with a bit of water and then rinse it might come off. Sort of like washing your mouth out with soapy water for saying all those bad words!

  44. I bet you said all these words and more! I love this, even with the little imperfection! I have never, ever seen or heard anywhere else the word 'bumhead'. It was a word my youngest daughter called people when she was extremely cross and obvously thought was a very bad word but it used to make us laugh (probably shouldn't have!). I thought she'd made it up!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Joke on you or not, the idea is fabulous. Perhaps it's appropriatae the ink ran a little?

    ReplyDelete
  46. This is hilarious! I hope you were able to save it somehow. But I suppose it's even more perfect now.

Hellloooooo !!!!
