Hey there! The last few days have been.....well....interesting......and this post may be a bit random and discombobulated....but just hang on and enjoy the ride!
The silliness all started on Friday when I received a very nice e-mail from Moda saying that we're no longer allowed to call this fabric by the original name they gave it which is Hershey.....
The Hershey company didn't like the fact that there was a fabric named Hershey so it is now named Chocolate. Seriously?! Seriously???!!! That's tooooo funny! I know companies have to protect their name and trademark and logo and all that stuff......but Seriously?! I don't think anyone is going to confuse a brown fabric with a chocolate bar. And apparently the Hershey Company is watching me to make sure I no longer use their name. LOL! Don't they have better things to do?! I feel all big and fancy and important because Hershey is watching me!
Anyway.....I've started my own chocolate protest and I'd love for you to join me. All you have to do is eat ANY other brand of chocolate as often as you want.....Nestle, Ghiradelli, Godiva, etc. Isn't that a fabulous protest?
Then....on Saturday morning I woke up feeling like I'd been hit by a ton of bricks and I still feel sick and I think it's now four days later. I don't really know for sure....my mind is a little foggy. Anyway, I decided I needed a little chocolate therapy and I desperately wanted a Reese's Peanut Butter cup. Do you know where this is going? Guess who make Reese's???!!! Noooooooo!!!!! Oh the horror!!!! So now I need to head over to my Pinterest board for "Sweet Treats" and hunt down all those homemade Reese's recipes I've been hoarding and make my own version of Peanut Butter and Chocolate Heavenly-ness.
But wait....my weekend gets better.....our AC AND our internet weren't working for most of the weekend. And when I finally felt strong enough to pull myself out of bed on Sunday afternoon to do some sewing, I spilled tea all over my beloved Granny Square Quilt. Nooooooo!!! But the good news is I think it survived it's time in the Emergency Room.....also known as the kitchen sink. Here it is in Recovery.....also known as a drying rack......
And I've just gotta say.....if you're ever feeling sick and need someone to take care of you....Mr. Sew Fab is not the man for the job - LOL! No offense to guys but if I said "he's such a guy" would you know what I mean? Here's a conversation between me and Mr. Sew Fab...
Me: You're a terrible caregiver.
Mr. Sew Fab: I know.
Me: What would happen if I ever got really, seriously, long term sick?
Mr. Sew Fab: We'd hire someone to take care of you.
And another conversation:
Me: I still feel really crummy. I can barely move.
Mr. Sew Fab: Hmmmmm......anyway.....can you make some of that Southwestern Orzo Salad for lunch?
And my favorite:
Mr. Sew Fab: We all can't be good at everything. We all have our skills. And you're gonna be really glad you're with me if there's ever a Zombie Apocalypse.
I guess he does have a valid point with that one.
And he is being a good hunter-gatherer and making sure I have food while I don't feel well enough to cook.....
And I do have some awesome news to share! Emma had a growth removed from her leg last week and I got the call yesterday that it was benign and harmless! Yay!!!!! Go Emma, go!
Right now I'm going to go curl up in a ball like Emma, eat some chocolate and take a little nap. And my plan for tomorrow is to avoid flaming and exploding objects, work on my Granny Square Quilt and get lots of rest.....Hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July!
P.S. I'll be back with the July Giveaway soon!
P.P.S.S. Just for the record....Mr. Sew Fab is a great guy and he's doing his best! Our conversations were more joking around and not so serious!!!
