Not going so great

My plan for tonight was to finish the donation quilt so The Blue One and I could deliver it to the Project Linus meeting tomorrow, but that’s just not going to happen tonight.  I’ve run into a couple of problems.

Problem #1:
I stitch my bindings on the front, first, then machine stitch the back.  When I was doing the back, I happened to flip it over to take a peek, and I saw that.  Oh No!  I honestly don’t know how it happened, since I should have seen it when I stitched the front on first.  I had a mild freak-out, then ripped, and started again.  It’s down again, and it looks fine.

So I sew, sew, sew, and then this:
Really?  I’m out of thread?!?  Ug!  I guess it’s time to turn off the machine, grab another glass of wine, and grab a good book!

Despite my ‘un’-finish, I’m linking up to Chery’s finish it Friday over at crazy mom quilts.


About msminnesota

I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler'). I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!). This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI! IG: wannabequilter

  1. Oh that would be frustrating! You’ll get it done soon and I am sure it will be great! And hey, like you said, a good chance to grab a wine and a good book!

      Still not quite done…the new spool of thread I bough to complete the binding rolled under the couch and was missing for a day. It’s been found and I can now complete the binding! Then more wine!
      Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

    Been there too! Hope that glass of wine helped! Today is a new day and all will go smoothly, I’m sure 🙂

    Ugg… One reason I sew them on by hand, I have to lstare at it for so long, I spot these *issues* before I’m too far gone… LOL! But I really like the wine idea, that works wonders, too! Speaking of too far gone….

I want to hear from you...
