The Goddess of Craft - she is a vengeful, spiteful thing

  1. You are happy because you sold eight of your SWAK blankets in a week, so you bought a lot more fabric to make new ones for the shop? Okay, now you won't sell anything for three weeks. Bwahahahaha!
  2. You have a deadline looming and a sample quilt to make? Okay, your stash no longer has three fabrics that coordinate. Bwahahahaha!
  3. And you're out of chocolate! Bwahahahahaha!
  4. And your toddler refuses to take naps! Bwahahahahaha!
  5. You get up early to get some work done before your toddler awakes? Okay, now she'll get up at 6:40am, but only on days when you wake up early. On days when you sleep in, she'll sleep until 8:30am, thus depriving you of 90 minutes of time that could have been spent in the studio. Bwahahahahahaha!
  6. Trying to entertain the kid for an hour while you get some work done? Okay, now the portable DVD player is broken ... but only when you try to use it in your studio. Anywhere else it works fine ... but all of the work you have to finish requires that you be in the studio. Bwahahahahahaha!
  7. You have no deadline and a huge pile of scraps you're trying to use up? Okay, your stash is now chock full of fabrics that coordinate with the scrap blocks ... but you don't have enough yardage of any of them. Bwahahahahahaha!
  8. Oh, and the cat puked on the pile of fabric you stored on the floor because you were too lazy to file it. Bwahahahaha!

Stay tuned - later this week I plan to slice off the end of my finger with a rotary cutter, then set my studio on fire with a shorted-out iron. And, if things go as planned, the kid will pee on a finished quilt that's ready to ship to a customer. Should be fun!

Isn't that just how things always work out?

I had to laugh about the cat puking on your fabric, LOL! It reminds me of when my husband and I lived in condo with carpeted floors, and the cat would eat in the tiled kitchen, and then go in the living room, and throw up on the carpet. Now, why couldn't she just throw up on the easy to clean tile???

At least now we have hardwood floors everywhere, so when she does throw up, I can just mop it up. I did stop giving her soft food, and that helps a lot - she can't keep soft food down for some reason.
