The other day I showed you the appliqued portion of the first Comfort & Joy block--I was almost done with it and I thought I'd be able to post the finished block last night, but I'd mixed up the day I was supposed to reveal the third block. Confused yet?
There's more. I also thought I'd be able to finish that first block last night, but I somehow became obsessed with food and the refrigerator and didn't make it into the Sweat Shop at all!
What happened was that I needed to go to the grocery store and decided Winco was the best choice. Do you ever shop at Winco? Do you get lost in there the way I do and then spend two or three times the amount of time you'd spend in any other grocery store? Yeah, I'm not sure where the savings comes in when I could probably make a lot more money just WORKING the extra hour or so I spent wandering the Winco aisles.
THEN there's all the putting away of food once I got home, because I tend to buy more "stuff" too--such good buys, I just couldn't HELP but buy 67 boxes of Rice-a-Roni, could I?
On top of all that last night, I thought I should clean out the fridge--because when I got right down to it, that was the only way I was going to be able to fit all the stuff I bought into it. And then as I cleaned and tossed, I found dried, sticky spills on each of three shelves--one was a broken egg that fell behind the egg carton and dried and the other couple spills weren't much better. Cleaning those up took another hour or so.
Probably more than you came here to find out about. I should just shut up now and show you the finished block, shouldn't I? Because I DID get into the Sweat Shop tonight.
Clearly, I still have a few unresolved food issues I need to work through.
