Oh my goodness, if that title sounds ominous, it's because it's supposed to lol!!!!!! You guys won't even believe my luck, and sadly, I'm not talking about "good" luck!!!

You know how sometimes you have "rules" you live by, such as "don't go swimming right after you eat", "don't start watching a scary movie right before bed", "don't wear those skinny jeans when heading out for a buffet dinner"....those kinds of things because you've done them in the past and the results were not… Continue reading System Overload!

When people find out you sew, they automatically assume that you must be a Quilter, and then they ask you to replace a zipper in their child's winter coat lol!!
