I have nearly 80 unpublished blog posts, and most of them are Friday Funnies. While trying to set up Friday Funnies in advance for the month of June while I was too busy pedaling to pay tons of attention to my blog, I found a lot of dead Friday Funny links. Perhaps it's time to use up some of those remaining unpublished Friday Funnies before all the links go dead.
So, here's to Comedy Week at Snowcatcher!
Don't forget to send your mandalas to Kathryn at Crochet Concupiscence by August 31!
You may do whatever you'd like with snowflakes you make from this pattern, but you may not sell or republish the pattern. Thanks, and enjoy!
