a public service announcement

When one is drinking a cup of tea at your computer, DO NOT try to kill a bug you let in.  If you want a new keyboard and mouse, just go get one.

This ends this public service announcement.

Have a good day!


EDIT:  I discovered I get to purchase 2 new lamp shades, also.  One is for the lamp shade that now has a tear in it and the second one is so I continue to have matching  lamp shades.  Sigh!

Decisions...decisions...I can't decide whether to use this in the backing or save it for another project.
These are all the scraps left over from making this quilt top.
The block I built with the scraps left over from the quilt top is 24" by 18".  I can't decide if I want to use the rest of the flocked material to built  the block out to 72" by 48" or use some other fabric to get it to the right size.  But, what fabric or fabrics would I use?  Would it look okay scrappy or do I want the fabric to blend in somehow with the block?  Nor do I want the backing to show through to the front.  So would the scrappy block be real obvious from the front if I used it?

I think I'm going to set the whole project aside and let it ferment until I get a bright idea.  I.e. when my Muse comes back for a visit and whispers an idea in my ear.

Think I will get busy on my sister's sweater I'm knitting for her.  I actually have the body knitted and I'm trying to pick up the right number of stitches for the sleeves.

I hope everybody is having a good day!
