    I have had just about the most aggreviating afternoon/evening!!!!! I've broken 5-6 of my machine needles, and only the good Lord knows how many times the thread broke!!!!!!! :evil: All I needed to do was a VERY simple FMQ on an extremely simple lap quilt. It has taken me about 6 hours to complete the quilting!!!!! :twisted: I'll never been so glad to finish something in my entire life as I will be to finish that quilt!!! :hunf: The only thing that kept me from ripping it apart or burning it was that I took a couple of breaks, and then returned to fight with it all over again.

    Sorry to rant, but it was either have my meltdown on the QB or jump off the nearest bridge!!!!! :roll:

    I sure hope everyone's day went much better than mine did! Sweet dreams y'all. :wink:

    Must be the Grinch was out and about today. There have been several similar posts. You are wise to give it for today.

    I hope tomorrow goes better for you.

    Isn't it amazing how that can happen? Usually with the simplest projects. That's when I walk away and take a break. Always seems to go better when I come back.
