Someone Slap Me Please

For a variety of reason, I really do need to be slapped.

I live with a 6 year old infomercial junkie. Slap me because that just screams that I let her watch far too much television. The latest I want we've been listening to is about the Incredible Brownie pan. Grace and I even went to sew with the ladies in Springhill two weeks ago and the host had one and made brownies. Long story short, I found a knock off on Friday at Bed Bath and Beyond. I brought it home. We CRACKED up when I showed Grace the pan because she literally recited the commercial word for word. Today I made brownies. I didn't burn them, which was a plus. But I did eat one too many brownies, because I have absolutely NO will power, and not I feel absolutely miserable. Slap me for that too.

Friday afternoon I took 4 hours of vacation to do nothing but sew. I succeeded, but I didn't do a single bit of quilting or piecing, which was the intent for the 4 hours. Instead, I plopped myself in front of the embroidery machine and became completely obsessed with making diaper wipe holders. I made 10 with zippers and 10 little bags. So obsessed, that I even ran to Wal-Mart to buy more zippers. Slap me, OK. As if the diaper things weren't enough, then I got on the kick of making key rings and putting a metal key fob on them. Very cool, but very addictive. So I stopped the embroidery about 8:30, long enough to get Grace in the shower and in pjs for the night.

I really don't know what came over me, but then I realized that I hadn't used the 2 new dies that I got for my Go Cutter. There were 25 fat quarters that had been ironed and were going to be used for a Turning 20 top. No instead I used them and cut out apple cores and drunkard path blocks. Haven't started sewing those because that would mean I might have to finish the horse top that's on the design wall in order to make space.

Nothing I should have finished over the weekend was even touched. UGH. I'm seriously going to have a make a list for this week and truly stick with it by marking off the completed items. Needless to say, I didn't even come close on my Quilter's Accountability challenge for the month of February.

Oh well, I made some really cool things. I will be sure to share pictures tomorrow. Have a great night.

For all that guilt now, sounds like you had a blast then!

That is so funny about your obession - I have been obessed with purses, wallets, mittens and scarves. Once I started I haven't been able to stop. And I know what you mean when your kids are a walking infomercial - can you say "SHAM WOW!" Lisa

My 5 year old insists we get that brownie pan too! What's up with that? Is it because when I make brownies and cut them, they are a big mess of crumbs? They still taste good. Kids!
