I'm a winner!

Aren't giveaways great? Winning is even better of course - so I was very pleased to hear I'd won Team Bacon's giveaway!

What's that you say? You haven't heard of Team Bacon? I'm not a member, but this is what their charter says: "Team Bacon stands for having fun with creative like-minded individuals and supporting charitable endeavors through our collective obsession with bacon. Bacon brings together so many people from diverse walks of life. Some prefer pork; some prefer turkey, some prefer soy; but all can agree that in all its forms, bacon is wonderful. Bacon connects the masses in a communal love for a tastier life."

What's not to love? Mr Nifty knows the way to my heart inevitably involves bacon, so I consider myself a worthy winner!

So - what did I win?



My very own Sassy Sally Bacon, carved from the loins of awesomeness, fun and never-ending good times. (It must be true, it says so on her birth certificate)

I'd just like to point out to those people who think I'm slightly eccentric for knitting meerkats in costumes that I am VERY sane indeed compared to BaconMama!

Not only did my bacon come with a birth certificate, I also have a licence entitling me (compelling me!) to build a better world through laughter and bacon.

I also got a couple of sachets of bacon salt - a product I had not known existed but for which I shall now scour the UK supermarkets!

BaconMama asks "What do Bacon do?"

Well - Sassy Sally came on a day trip to Whitstable, Kent (one of my favourite places, and where we hope to live in a few years time)

We had a picnic on the beach (no bacon in the sandwiches...it seemed wrong)



...posed for photos with Nifty and an inevitable meerkat hitchhiker...



...and considered diving into the sea (fortunately decided against it!)



then home again, where *somebody* discovered an opportunity for a photoshoot with the latest meerkats!



Thank you team Bacon!

Nifty, I just love to read anything you write -- so witty and funny! And, how your Meerkats have such personalities and expressions.

And, just think... all from 'so much yarn, so little time!'

Love this!

Congratulations on winning such a fun giveaway! How sweet of your meerkats to welcome Sassy Sally with open arms instead of munching on her bacony goodness. ^.^
