WARNING: This is a rather sarcastic post. Proceed at your own risk. You've been warned.
Must be no one has missed me--or at least not enough to leave a comment about it! So I will just do a bit of rambling for tonight.
On a recent episode of Blue Bloods (hubba hubba Tom Selleck!), some of the family were out bike riding. The youngsters had helmets on, but not the aunt/mom. An accident ensued, with the youngest rider, having unbuckled his helmet at a rest stop, having head trauma and going into a coma. Now--in the interest of setting a good example on tv and as the aunt/mom, why wasn't Erin wearing a helmet? It could just as easily been her that was hurt and it would have been worse without a helmet.
Speaking of helmets, it amazes me the number of horseback riders who don't think they need a helmet. Really? Anyone can be thrown at any time, even on the tamest horse. You just never know. So why take a stupid chance?
I've been making some serious inroads on unfinished blocks. I am within two blocks of being caught up on my Monthly Bliss 3 class quilt and three blocks from finishing my pink Green Thumb sample. Will miracles never cease....
Several ideas for new classes are running amok in my brain. I'm excited to get things on paper, but know that if I wait a bit, the final ideas will be better than what I can do now. Stay tuned!
And one final mini rant. In a recent quilt magazine, a well known designer said, in essence, not to worry about your piecing skills, because it just won't matter if you cut off points. Really? There's no shame in cutting off points if you have done your very best and that's the result. But to just not worry about them at all? Pass the chocolate--I feel faint.
And, as a reminder, you can visit the tutorial about posting blog comments here:

That's it for tonight. I'll try to be less snarky next time.
P.S. I am listening to The Forgotten by David Baldacci.
