Living On Borrowed Time?

I was sitting in a crinkly paper gown on the examining table at the Dr.'s office and he was sitting on the rolling stool, facing me. He was explaining all the details of a serious condition (with a long name) caused by precision piecing in patchwork; the consequences of which would result in premature death. He raised and eyebrow and declared that he'd once seen a patient live to 49 years old, but that was highly unusual and not at all the norm. I kept trying to interrupt him and tell him that I was already older than that but he just kept shaking his head and talking, he wouldn't listen to one word from me; that's when I woke up. So much for sharp points and perfectly matched intersections... maybe I should take it a little easier... geez... I don't want to kill myself here... what's the point in that?

Life is Good!

So funny!! Obviously you are way too obsessed with precision piecing! ;-) Time to ease up on yourself.

ROFLOL!

I, on the other hand, can quit any time I want to!

Cute! I guess it is time to ease up!

So are you still going to even consider dismantling that fabulous BOM project after the blocks realigned themselves ~ especially now that you've had this dreamy vision??

:-)

Salem Stitcher said...

Yep, your subconscious is trying to tell you something. Maybe you should leave that BOM quilt as is. Or, have you already "fixed" it and now your inner rebel is taunting you for your perfection?

Either way, take it easy on yourself!

LOL. Somebody's trying to tell you to lower your expectations just a bit. :)

I dare you to leave a point cut off in your next quilt. Its very liberating!

Barb said...

Oh my, this is close to being a nightmare, thank you doc for causing this very scarey scenario! Glad it was only a passing dream (nightmare) not a true happening! You give us smiles with your blog posts...thank you, I always look forward to your entries!

that is quite funny!

the other night i dreamed that a co-worker of mine (who recently had a baby....you remember sophie's burp cloth), had decided that her daughter was allergic to diapers, so she had her 3 month old potty trained. the details of the dream went on and on about the baby and all the places that she used the bathroom, and all the different excuses that i got for why it had happened
i went to school the next day and went straight to her to let her know she was a tad bit crazy if she actually decided to do that! :)
