Stay inside tonight

Because it's the Friday Night Sew-In. This month, we signed up with Bobbi over at Crafty Vegas Mom. There's still time to join in the fun!

I intended to keep working on the Be Yourself quilt. But I'm having some issues.

Remember the Black-Peach dilemma? The black seems too dark alongside the cream and straw fabrics I'm using around the four-patch blocks. Today I bought some peach fabric:

And I hate it! I don't know if you can tell from this photo, but it's really peachy. I forgot to take my square to the fabric store with me to match, but that didn't matter anyway because they only had one peach solid. It was pathetic. I bought a metre of it anyway, hoping that it would be the right shade, but it's too bright and sweet. I need muted.

I think I'm having so much trouble making up my mind on this because I'm stressed. It's not my job. It's not the OnlyChild. And it's not Mr. P (he's pretty easy to live with, actually). It's not even the Wild Things - Abby's peeing spree is not a regular occurrence. There are other things going on that have me a bit worried and upset. When I'm feeling this way, I have trouble making decisions and moving on.

I wonder if I should take my block and head to another fabric store or if I should just find something else to work on for tonight...until I can make up my mind or until this stressful situation resolves itself and I can finally get on with things. See, I can't even decide what to do. Sigh.

I'll let you into a secret - I dislike peach. Not sure I own any peach coloured fabrics at all. I hope you find a solution. It may jump up and bite you - lol !!

You know what I like with black fabrics is a bright red. Of course that is just me. Yellow looks good too. I really don't think your peach is all that bad. Say I am having a giveaway on my blog to promote my blog as I have been away from it for a while and need some more followers. If you have time go in and check me out and leave your comments.
