    Oh my, I feel as if I need a window in my belly to see where I am going. I have been quilting today. I sewed three parts of my quilt together wrong. Not once or twice, but three times. After the third time, I shut everything down and will face it again tomorrow. I went out and cleaned the kitchen. I managed to fill the salt and pepper shakers correctly. Thought I would vacuum. But decided maybe today isn't a good day to fool around with electricity.

    Hear you, i' ve been on the same bus, started at 5:30 ( wait that's really 4:30)) & it's been downhill from there. Went to take photos of a quilt, couldn't find it, took an hour, had left the camera on now the batteries were dead. No more batteries. I was afraid to drive the car to get some, was sure i' d get a flat.
    forgot to take something out of freezer for dinner, so were eating grilled cheese!
    I think i' m going to take a hot bath, put on my pj's, & stay out of trouble

    Same here-today was a blah day-wanted to do some free motion but my Phaff is cutting my thread somewhere inside. I am not happy-I just had it to the sewing machine guy for a cleaning and now I have to take it back!!GRRR! So now I've decided to cut some material for a new quilt-with my luck my rotary cutter will break!!! If that doesn't work I'll do some hand work. It's cold here in Pa but no snow and no sunshine.

    We can blame it on the time change!!!

    I am feeling like I need a nap and it's only 6 pm here...

    It's cold here, too. But I did notice my crocus are blooming!!

    It is going to be a quilt for my aunt in Ireland. We are going this summer. I have ideas..doing a Texas theme. It will be my version of turning twenty. I have several Texas theme fabrics and a gorgeous Texas wildflower fabic and coodinated Moda marbles. Made several drawings and trying to zero in. I'm calling my embroidery lady tomorrow about a panel in the middle with Yellow Rose, Armadillo, Outline of Texas, boot and Longhorn. The turning twenty part will surround this panel. Keep your fingers crossed!

    Remedy: go to your LQS and spend some time lost in the colors and textures of the fabric! Treat yourself to one item, then go to lunch with a friend, afterward head home and try again!

    Definitely time for a break when that happens. Go for a walk, visit with a friend, read a book. .. return fresh.

    Some days it just doesn't pay to get out of bed. My inner clock woke me up at 5:30 this am. At least I am able to get things done.

    I've had those days. Too many, and too close together. Definitely time for a good book and a warm quilt to cuddle up with.
