It’s quickly approaching and today is significantly close. What the heck am I blaggling (My made up word which is an amalgamation of babbling, blogging, and babbling) about?
Why, it’s Corduroy Appreciation Day! Coming soon to a date near you 11/11/11. And here it is 11/1/11. Pretty close!
Today, the Corduroy Appreciation Club held a club meeting in NYC at the American Museum of Natural History under the life sized blue whale (whale/wale, get it? The main public symbol of the Corduroy Appreciation Club is the Whale) at 11:11 am. We missed it, but all wales were welcome.
On the agenda tomorrow is a membership drive. If you are a corduroy appreciator, you can send them here to register – Corduroy Club Membership. Or you can register yourself.
11/3 is Corduroy Snack day. Eat something that resembles corduroy. I suggest lined up celery sticks. They’re good for you. But licorice whips are good too. Be creative.
11/4 is Do a Good Deed day. And so on until the big day. You can find the countdown events here – Cordulog.
I’m working on a corduroy quilt project with the goal of having it done by 11/11/11.
This one was made a year ago. I like the way the corduroy contrasts against the smoother printed cottons.
It crinkles and washes up nicely.
And in case you’re wondering, yes, I am wearing corduroy today. Pants.
