Today the universe has felt the need to remind me of a few general truths.
1. Never, ever, EVER take a baby anywhere without a diaper bag. It doesn't matter that you only are going to be there for 30 minutes. Those 30 minutes will be the time that the child decides to barf (twice) and poop (explosively).
2. You can never buy enough white thread. Just have as much of it as you can store in the closet and you won't have to stop a project until you can get to the store by yourself (unlikely) or take the children with you (suicide).
3. Multicolor thread is expensive and comes in very small quantities. Don't expect a spool to do as much as you want it to. ever. It doesn't matter if it looks like a normal sized spool. It isn't.
4. You can never have enough fabric. Look at what arrived in the mail today! I love it! I have no idea what I'm going to use it for.
