    Been there, done that several times, lol. No wine for me, then it wouldn't get done.
    Believe, it can be done!

    These stories gave me a chuckle because last night as I was frog stitching several hexes, because I had cut probably 100 5 inch hexes, had sewn several together, and THEN decided I didn't like that particular color, and started in again. Now to figure out what to do with those lovely hexes that are perfectly fine, but just not for this project. (Smacking forehead, duh!) What is that old saying, if you don't try something, you won't make mistakes! Guess we are trying to do something!

    oh dear...not laughing AT you, but WITH you I am sure....my recent motorcycle accident triggered the fibro brain fog this week...I can not hold a thought together long enough to walk 2 feet! Hope the rest of your sewing goes as planned!

    Yes, I can attest to that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What amazes me is that I can do it again, after the first time I did it.

    Chocolate always helps.

    Rule of thumb--ALWAYS keep chocolate near your machine. BTW, I think my machine has gone deaf. No matter what I say to it, or how loud, it just doesn't respond.

    OMG, I think everyone's week has been going this way! lol Guess we can either blame it on the moon or the Olympics...maybe the heat? Think I'll give that chocolate a whirl and see if it helps ME! lol
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    I have a large spool of cotton thread, and I fill two bobbins with it. I generally run out of needle thread first, then I fill another bobbin, and put the full one in the bobbin and use the used bobbin one for the needle thread. I never sew without bobbin thread this way. I hate to do that!! =)

    Another one is looking high and low for a missing piece to finally find it stuck to you someplace and it's really hard to see if it's on your backside!!!!!!!

    At least you can laugh about it. I just hate it when I am sewing away and find out that I'm not really sewing at all.
    Be the best that you can be at everything you do.
