The weekend my brain went on vacation

The OnlyChild and I have a long-running joke that we share a brain, because we think so alike and often say the same things at the exact same time.

This weekend, she must have been using the shared brain because it sure as hell hasn't been in my head.

If you read my post yesterday, you'll know what I'm talking about. But here are some additional blunders from the weekend:
- I forgot to put soya sauce in the stir fry last night. Bland.
- I put too much milk in the fudge and it didn't set. Eating it required a spoon.
- I did a load of laundry today, mainly so I could wash my pants for tomorrow night's dance class. And I forgot to put the pants in the wash.

And...
- After yesterday's Swoon frustration, I vowed to pay attention to what I was doing. However, I still managed to make a mistake in the third block when I used my #1 fabric for flying geese blocks instead of the white. Now I don't have any 3 1/2 x 6 1/2" rectangles to complete the blocks. Plus, I'm probably going to run out of white fabric. I had to put in yet another fabric order. And this time it was more expensive. So I guess I will be using the money I make marking government exams this month to pay off the Visa.

I have banished Swoon for a while.


It can live in this plastic container until my brain decides to migrate home.

I'm not armed, but I might be dangerous.

Hope it comes back soon - it could be quite dangerous without it! LOL

Was it the scarecrow that wanted a brain? Maybe he took yours? Just kidding, well.....as busy as you are and with all you do, it is a wonder you know which day it is.

Ah well, be glad you are too young for "Senior Moments".

You're so funny -- I hope Swoon won't be on timeout for too long. I hate it when I have days like you did yesterday. Sorry. Hopefully, today is a better day!

Well...just change that pattern up to make it your own...I'm sure you'd do a fine job of it. How funny that you had to eat the fudge with a spoon and that you didn't wash the one thing you wanted to do in the laundry!!! :)

Yes. Sounds like you need a Swoon break! But I hope you pick it back up soon.

Your block still looks great! A break might give you a fresh look at it. Thanks for the no texting while cutting tip in the last post. That is a good idea. I can't cut and even think about anything else or it goes badly for me. I hope you start again soon.

Too Funny! Your brain will return and you'll make one fabulous quilt! Despite the mishaps...I think the block looks good.
