i swear i am doing it.
this little "quilt-a-long" has caused me
quite a few episodes. quite. a. few.
everything was going smoothly until
week 2. and it has been down hill ever since.
let me just break it down for you:
so i was sewing my rows together and my machine
decided it didn't wanna play nice anymore and
i had already sewn 1/2 way down the row
before i looked up and saw something askew.
so i had a fit of rage:
and ripped it all to hell. i just was not
in the mood that day.
so it lay in a ripped tattered heap in the floor
for about a week until i decided to fix it.
THEN, once i slapped it together
(literally, no trimming and truing up-
did i mention i was not in the mood?)
i went to get snuggle fabric for the back since
it was on sale..got 2 yards...figured that is enough..
WRONG. it only covered 1/2 of it. i could have chopped
it all to bits and re-assembled, but screw that, the
material was on sale....so back to joann's i go.
i had it in my head that i only needed 1 yard.
so i get home, true up everything and i realize
how small my one yard was....
WELL HELLO! that was because it was
only 1 YARD, IDIOT!! so instead of
tossing the whole damned thing in the fire i
talked my self down and pieced it till it was the
right size.....then i break out the batting
i had gotten a few weeks back when it was
50% off, and guess what? TOO SMALL!!!
well it was wider than longer so i just trimmed
the excess off the end and sewed into place so it fit.
it is still 1" too short, but who gives a crap!?
so i get 1/2 way thru quilting 1 side yesterday, and
my machine decided to have another tension moment..
one i have yet to figure out. i don't understand how it
can sew 12 blocks continuously and the F up on
the last few. i just don't know why what this
stupid little quilt is becoming such a pain.
i WILL finish it, just in spite of its self.
it may look like doo, but by God it will be
marked off my list. and hidden in the closet.
or given to satan for Christmas.
i am not bitter.
so i am trying to redirect myself into
cutting the pieces for Raggedy JoAnn.
not making very much headway.
on to cuter things!!!!
here is my new fav:
she doesn't have a name yet
don't u just wanna smoosh her little face in?!
how's yalls projects coming?
Anyone else have something they want
to burn in a ritual?!
