I have no willpower. Seriously, none. There was this round robin that was full and I said to put me on the alternates list in case someone dropped out. Lately I had been hoping that no one would drop out, because I don't need to be in anymore round robins. So Ruth emails me to see if I would fill in because a couple of people dropped out. Do I say no? Of course not!! I'm such a loser. Oh well, the Open Theme RR will be done for me in a couple of days. I'll finish Jen's today and then I'll work on Kathy's that I received early. The Stitcher's Lane RR should be done in the next couple of months. Then I'll just be down to the Mirabilia RR and the Band Sampler RR. The new one will be a Teresa Wentzler theme. I was initially thinking corner motifs, but in looking at some other round robins using her border sections, I decided to do that. They're just gorgeous. I already have fabric picked out and a pattern in mind. So, currently I'm way ahead of the game LOL

This morning was so bad. I needed to be to work early today. So I woke up really early, did the dishes, started the laundry, got Eva up and dressed and we were almost out the door and I brilliantly decided to start the car and get it warmed up. I locked my keys in my running car. It took about and hour and fifteen minutes for the locksmith to show up. GRrrrrr! Fortunately, it turned out to be no big deal.

I have to tell this little story about Eva. I keep laughing about this. They keep playing commercials for Chocolate Lucky Charms (Tracy!) and she keeps wanting them. I've given her every reason in the book as to why she can't have them. Finally, I just told her they were only for bad little kids. That finally kind of cured her of wanting them. So the other day she was being really bad. I sent her to her room and after a few minutes I went in there and explained to her that she was being bad and the first thing she asked was if she could have Chocolate Lucky Charms now. LOL Talk about backfiring!!

That's a great story about Eva! :)

I know what you mean about round robins. I think I'm addicted. Luckily you're right though and the open-themed and stitcher's lane RRs are almost done. In fact I have my last piece for the SL RR here and if I'd just stitch it up I'd be done with that one!
