WTF Myrtle?

Wow! It's 2:30am (CDT) and I've just about finished organizing our stash. For those of you who don't know, my wife is a quilter also! She's the driving force behind the recently born Disconnected Stitches. Go check it out and tell her I sent ya!

Anywho back to my WTF.... We recently purchased 2 bags of fabric at a thrift shop. Kinda a lets see what we get when we get home type of deal. It's been sitting in my living room chair for about a week now and it was time to go through it! While going through the fabric we found small pieces about 1 1/2 inches square folded in half and taped with masking tape. WTF Myrtle? C'mon do you really need to tape the ends together? I won't go into the ones with the tape and a staple!!!

This episode of WTF lead me to invent, coin, birth, or whatever you wanna call it the term Psycho Sanitize. It is a Verb. Past tense is Psycho Sanitized. Definition: To tell someone of a encounter with a person or item that lacks common sense or a reasonable explanation.

Lemme use it in a sentence for ya...

After dealing with all that fabric I'm going to have to Psycho Sanitize so I can get some sleep.

And thus, you've just read my Psycho Sanitization. I feel much cleaner!!

Have the best Friday possible.


  1. Oh Lordy, you d crack me up, Greg. I can picture your taped treasures. I found a pretty good condition quilt top probably made in the 30's, fairly good condition with one exception. Somebody thought they could quilt it by just sewing a cheap backing onto the top. Wrong sides together. They began machine quilting, sort of. It's awful. One of these days, I'll rip out their stitcing, remove this awful back and make something better out of it??? Maybe, someday. Thanks for the new vocabulary word, I'll be using that in the future.

  2. Hi!
    Thanks so very, very much for your nice comment on my Decision Portrait Series! It's nice to see a man quilting and blogging about it!

  3. would have been nice if they had hidden treasures inside the taped and stapled bundles LOL

  4. I came home from lunch and saw several teenagers walk RIGHT SMACK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD...... there's perfectly good sidewalks, on BOTH side of the road!!!!

    *shakes her head*

    This Psycho Sanitized me!!!


  5. Okay, you're a new blog to me, and a funny guy! That's a keeper in my book. Thanks for the blog, and the laugh. I'll go see what your wife is doing now,.... pokey
