I have so many talents and interests I can't keep up with them all. This morning I slept in. Guess I needed it as I haven't slept well in several nights. So here it is, almost 10:00 and I'm still in my pajamas! Why? I'm sitting at the computer going through all of my hobby e-mails and so not getting any work done! I do still own a business and I have clients who want me to help them and projects to take care of. So I'm sitting here blogging about it on Spark instead of working. I've also spent 2 hours this morning, reading quilt blogs, sewing blogs, blogs about the Queen's outfits and why she picks the colors she picks for them, geneology (found a really distant cousin recently) Politics and whatever else. I'm also trying to become a consistant blogger on my real blog. So I am going to sign off here, get in the shower, get some clothes on, and then go to my real job as a decorator. I have people waiting to buy things, waiting on me to price it! Get moving Carol. Later.

With time, women gain weight because we accumulate so much information and
wisdom in our heads that when there is no more room, it distributes out to the rest of our bodies. So we aren't heavy, we are enormously cultured, educated and happy.
Beginning today, when I look at my butt in the mirror I will think, Good grief, look how smart I am!
Must be where 'Smart Ass' came from!

I'm reposting the following from QuiltingB52's blog this morning as I wanted to share with all my quilting friends. This is serious as the disease is spreading!
"Fabric Alert Warning....
Friday, June 15, 2012
A recent study indicated that fabric gives off certain Pheromones that actually hypnotize women and cause them to purchase unreasonable amounts. When stored in large quantities in enclosed spaces, the Pheromones (in the fabric) causes memory loss and induces the nesting syndrome (similar to the one squirrels have before the onset of winter i.e. storing food). Therefore perpetuating their species and not having a population loss due to their kind being cut into pieces and mixed with others.
Sound tests have also revealed that these fabrics emit a very high pitched sound, heard only by a select few, a breed of women know as “quilters”. When played backwards on an LP, the sounds are heard as chants, “buy me, cut me and sew me”. In order to overcome the so called “feeding frenzy effect” that these fabrics cause, one must wear a face mask when entering a storage facility and use ear plugs to avoid being pulled into their grip. One must laugh, however, at the sight of customers in a quilt fabric store, with WWII army gas masks and headphones!
Studies have also indicated that aliens have inhabited the earth, helping to spread the effects that these fabrics have on the human population. They are called QUILT FABRIC STORE CLERKS. It’s also been experienced that these same Pheromones cause a pathological need to hide these fabric purchases when taken home (or at least blend them into the existing stash), and when asked by significant other if the fabric is new, the reply is “I’ve had it for awhile.” "

I have this disease but I am here to say that I actually walked into 2 fabric stores this week and left with nothing, not even a pack of needles! I don't know what came over me. I sniffed and smelled and took in the aroma but wasn't inspired to whip out my credit card! I'm seriously thinking about making a doctor's appointment! I did have a wakeup call when I got my latest credit card bill that I have devoted to quilting purchases. I figured I needed to pare that down a bit and maybe knocked some sense into me. This week I attacked a UFO of a BOM that I'm enrolled in. (ONlY YOU QUILTERS WILL UNDERSTAND WHAT I JUST SAID) I've been sewing bags like I didn't have any so I"m glad to go back to something that I needed to do.
I must be crazy to have signed up for Ripples and Reflections BOM. It is another thousand tiny triangles quilt! What was I thinking? I just finished Patriots in Petticoats which was triangle city! I'm behind on my blocks so I want to catch up this weekend. R and R isn't that much fun because I am making 4 of the same block, all those triangles! And all the same! It is quick assembly line sewing though once I get into it.
So tomorrow is Saturday! Yea! Another day to sew and catch up! Later.
