I have issues, I know.
Don't we all?
But I may have to seek help...
Here's the story:
I recently needed a baby quilt gift.
And I have lots of fabric scraps in baby quilt colors.
So I went through The Scraps,
and came up with quite a few scraps already cut into
five inch charm squares in cute, baby quilt colors.
Which made me think:
"I could make a cute Lil Twister quilt!"
"Quick, easy, and scrap friendly!" I said."
(Yes, I talk to myself. And answer. Don't know what that means.)
"Yep!", I said to myself!
"Baby Twister it is!!"
Until I couldn't find my Lil Twister ruler.
I have the Lil Twister ruler.
I know I do...
I looked in the usual places...
cutting table, ruler rack, shelf above cutting table.
Then I checked the sewing table near the small cutting mat.
OK, on the sewing table,
there's a crock of my
'things I want to make soon, favorite patterns'...
you know - those great patterns
you pick up at shows and festivals
that you HAVE TO MAKE
I leafed through the stack quickly,
looking for my Lil' Twister ruler/pattern.
But I'd already looked everywhere else,
it had to be there.
So emptied the crock
(the crock, btw, may be a magic, bottomless crock:)
of "HAVE TO MAKE
NEXT soon patterns...
and slid them, one by one, into a drawer.
Here's the drawer now:
Now, I didn't count, but there are at least 50 patterns!!!
FIFTY "HAVE TO MAKE
NEXT soon favorites.
Doing some quick math -
assuming I live to be at least 104,
I need to USE & MAKE one of the aforementioned
"HAVE TO MAKE
By the way, February was my birthday month.
Guess what I bought myself?
Why, a new quilt pattern, of course!
What is wrong with me?
Oh, and I never found the Lil' Twister ruler.
