We Interrupt This Message...


I don't know what happened. It's not like I ever need to use it.



Can I be trusted to go to the store to replace it?

I knew I couldn't be trusted when it didn't occur to me to look for another one in the house.

I knew I couldn't be trusted when I decided not to call a nearby-living relative to ask for hers. Even though she hadn't used it in more than 15 years, she might need it again. Today.

I knew I couldn't be trusted when I decided not to call the other relative living nearby to ask for hers. Even though she probably had more than 20. She likes to own things in multiples.

I knew I couldn't be trusted when I started browsing the ads, to see how many 40% off coupons I could gather.

But I was very good. I didn't buy any fabric. It wasn't on sale, and I don't pay full price for things.

This stuff was on sale though. They had a lot of stuff that looked like the ribbons they sold at the quilt show. The one I bought stuff from. I might have to take up crazy quilting or something.

O this is too funny! My guild had a garage sale and I knew I couldn't be trusted there. I donated a lot of specialty fabrics for use in crazy quilts. BTW. Anyway, as luck for my wallet, I had to work that weekend and didn't get to go to the garage sale.

Were we seperated at birth? My wallet is VERY happy that the local fabric store closed - now I have to drive so far, I hardly ever go. Thank goodness, cuz I sure can't be trusted.

Hi Shasta, what a funny post. Glad you posted on my blog, but unfortunately I couldn't get your email to work for me, but want to thank you for the nice comment about our new GGGD...She is adorable. AND YES, Mommy almost waited too long to get to the hospital.Of course, since all is well, she sure didn't have to "labor" too long...***LOL***
