Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

The Center for Disease Control has issued a medical alert about a highly contagious, potentially dangerous virus that is transmitted orally, by hand, and even electronically.
This virus is called Weekly Overload Recreational Killer (WORK).
If you receive WORK from your boss, any of your colleagues or anyone else via any means whatsoever
This virus will wipe out your private life entirely. If you should come into contact with WORK you should immediately leave the premises. Take two good friends to the nearest liquor store and purchase one or both of the antidotes – Work Isolating Neutralizer Extract (WINE) and
Bothersome Employer Elimination Rebooter (BEER). Take the antidote repeatedly
until WORK has been completely eliminated from your system. You should
immediately forward this medical alert to five friends.
 If you do not have five friends, you have already
been infected
 and WORK is, sadly,
controlling your life. Get help immediately.

I thought this was funny and it does somewhat apply to me right now.
Just picture all those
papers in the picture above as pieces of  moda fabric.
Okay, I know, I know who my readers are. None of you feel sorry for me. I get it! I will stop whining.
I should probably spend some time re- writing the virus warning with acronyms like FUN, QUILT, SEW, MODA, STITCH etc.  How would you re-write the virus warning?

    LOL! I have to show this to my husband. He is trying to work less hours… But I shouldn't lecture; I'm in the same boat. I've been working on a big project for the last month, and haven't had much time to sew. I'm almost done! Warm up the iron and turn on the sewing machine, darlin' cuz I'm gonna make up for lost time.
