I spent the last few days putting all those little 4" blocks together......and now it's done! WOOHOO!!!!
I'm totally in love with this quilt! I don't know how I'm going to quilt it yet, but it will be bound in red! And it's a heavy top, so I know the batt will be very thin!
And the 'oh no' part of this post?.......
Well.......here's the story! I've been following Weight Watchers since May, and part of the way I get my water in every day is to down a ton of coffee! Usually about 2 pots worth! It's decaf, so it's ok! It's also the way I'm able to get in any calcium, cuz I use my lactose milk in every cup, so by the end of the day, I've had some milk. And, at my last physical, I told my doctor this, and she just laughed and said, '25 pounds down! Whatever works!' So it's all good! LOL
So today, for a little change of pace, I found a couple bags of special flavored coffee (we usually use french vanilla), so I thought, "Fun! Gingerbread flavor! Why not!" And I drank a pot and most of the second by dinner time.
That's when I started feeling yucky! And I instantly thought it might be the butternut squash soup I made, cuz it was a brand new recipe (totally yummy, by the way), but thought maybe it wasn't agreeing with me.
Then about 20 minutes ago, I thought......"Hmmmmm! Could that coffee have been regular?"
I drink decaf (and have, for the last 25 years!) FOR A REASON!!!!!!!!!
Because the last time I had regular coffee.....just one cup!.......I was up for 3 DAYS STRAIGHT!!!!!! AND my heart felt like it was coming out of my chest!
I don't even know what a pot and a half are going to do to me!!!!
Needless to say......for the last few hours, I've been VERY busy! LOL
I actually designed 8 upcoming quilts, drafted the blocks for all of them, printed out ALL the pages for paper piecing 5 of them.......and now I'm getting ready to pull fabrics for them all from the repros stash......
And I expect to have all of the fabrics cut and kitted together by morning! Because I don't expect to ever hit the bed tonight! LOL
SHEESH! That'll teach me! And, needless to say, I am getting rid of those two bags of coffee!
Hey......could you tell by my story......I'm just a little hyper right now! Maybe I should do a little housework, too! Nah! LOL
