I did not purchase any fabric this weekend. Nor did I purchase any batting, rotary blades, needles, sewing machine, or anything else quilt related. I almost got through the entire sales period without buying a thing! Almost. My downfall was finding a bread maker for half-price at a local store.
For many years, I've resisted getting a bread maker. But I had a strange reaction to the pain relief medication prescribed after my fall in October and since then many things have tasted funny. The worst has been store-bought bread, which now tastes very bitter to me. I'd hoped this strange effect would go away with time, but it's been 6 weeks since I quit taking the med and bread still tastes horrible. Thinking it might be the preservatives and so forth that I'm now tasting, I decided it was worth the gamble of buying a bread maker. I plan to test it out tonight. If nothing else, the home baked bread will be healthier and probably less expensive.
If you haven't noticed yet, there's a new Sundrop Critter on my website.
