|Just Say NO.|
I have a hard time saying NO, especially if there's a sob story involved.
Otherwise, how do you explain me agreeing to quilt a king-sized top that a friend's recently-deceased mom had left her? KING-SIZED. On a home sewing machine. 'Nuff said.
My most outrageous request was, "Can you make me a simple one-shouldered evening gown for a party next week? Just clingy and straight." Yeah. The words 'simple', 'clingy' and 'one-shouldered' should not ever be uttered together. Fortunately, the words I'M SORRY, BUT NO did come out of my mouth.
The pic above is my latest LEARN TO SAY NO project. This time, for the school nurse. And there wasn't even a sob story involved.
Long-time readers of this blog may remember this t-shirt quilt I agreed to make for a friend's son's graduation.
|How could I say NO to a fellow teacher who is also a baseball mom? Obviously, I couldn't.|
This friend has another son who plays baseball. He graduates next year. GUESS WHAT I JUST AGREED TO?
Sigh. I'm getting worse, instead of better...
