On the About forum, I have been watching a swap. I have never done a swap before and think it would be a lot of fun. So asked a couple questions and decided to go ahead and sign up. Well, because of my brain defect (there really is one--I'll explain in a moment) the instructions just did not connect properly. It said the swap would be in 3 catagories:white and black, cream and white and another one with a couple of embellishments.
Somewhere all colors was mentioned. My brain connected with the all colors and held fast. So, I post and say I have some oranges and yellows that I think will be wonderful. The host politely advised me that I was in another time zone. The colors were to be black and white and ....! I had to bail out, not because of the total embarrassemnt but because hubby and I are on a very tight budget and right now it means no fabric buying. I do not have any black or white material on hand. It sounds like a fun swap though, it is called crazy quilting blocks. I may just have to try one of these.
Hubby (and I) laughed when I told him what I had done. We have to laugh at my brain almost everyday---actually throughout the day everyday.
At the age of 16 I was in a terrible car accident; thrown through a windshield of a truck that flipped so many times it was unrecognizable. I suffered severe brain damage in the memory section of my brain. I am now 42 and we all have learned to live with it. But, I do not remember the past what so ever at all. Realistically, I do not remember what I did yesterday. I start each day anew. One of the reasons I only quilt one project at a time.
My brain has to work overtime in everything that I do, it is really hard to explain. But that is one reason it connected with the all colors and held fast. So the next time I decide to join a swap, I have to make sure hubby looks it over first and can determine if I am up to the challenge and understand the rules.
Did not want to add "sorrow" to my story but had to explain to make it a tad bit more understandable. Plus, this way I can look it over and it is in black and white what I did. Have a great day and hope you did enjoy my blunder!!
