TB Free...

...and yet the battle between rational mind and hysterical mind seems unending.

See? I told you there was nothing to worry about. We're fine.

C'mon!!! She barely glanced at it. And remember? The stuff leaked out!! Did we remember to tell her that the stuff leaked out???

I believe it was mentioned. Several times, in fact.

Awwwww...I knew we shouldn't have poked it! I told you not to poke it!! Should we call and tell her that we poked it?

No. Absolutely not. We are fine. It's over. Why don't we go take a nice nap?

Good idea. I do my best work in the subconscious milieu.

I hate you. Seriously.

I know.

I have decided to withdraw from this debate and leave that part of my brain to it's own devices. They will settle it soon, I'm sure of it.

Meanwhile, I decided to celebrate my consumption-free state with a little shopping excursion and a reprieve from today's workout. I've been fiddling around with the sewing machine a bit of late in the hopes that I might re-learn some of my long-lost skills in that area. Not wanting to spend gobs of moolah on that which may soon be relegated to the "never gonna finish" pile, I opted to use good old WalMart as my source.

Wait...what is that in the center of the pile??? Is that batting?
It seems that the quilting bug has crawled back into my field of vision. And why not? Every other creepy, crawly creature has invaded of late. I'm not sure if the low loft batting will see the light of day any time soon, but it'll be there if I decide to pursue this.
Meanwhile, I spent some time today cutting out pattern pieces for a couple of simple tote bags. We'll see if I can remember where everything goes. I've got scads of fabric left in the stash from the last sewing frenzy so there is plenty upon which to practice. If all goes well, then I may just have me a new knitting bag.
If all goes as I think it will then I will have me a new trash can liner.

Remind the subconsious mind that you had all those xrays when you had the monkey pox. TB probably would have shown up there.
Did I notice in your side bar that you have a visit with Dr. DeSade in two short weeks? (That should scare the TB out of them...)

Nifty recycling idea.... But I'm sure it will be a knitting bag instead of a trash can liner.

I'm just about to get my sewing machine out of its hiding place too! Got a few pretty cotton remnants that are just screaming to be a............something or other! Happy sewing.

Look forward to seeing the finished tote! Congrats re: the TB test, good to hear.

Take care, G

A new knitting bag sounds great...can't wait to see it.
No TB news is good news! Thanks for the compliments on my shawl- it was a fun project.

At least they both agreed to a nap!

I'm sure whatever you end up making with the sewing machine will turn out better than anything that comes out of my machine! I'm so bad that I use invisible thread so you can't see the crooked seams (that is when I am FORCED to sew a seam at all!)
