    this is the song running through my head too as I read this. So sorry for your frustration...been there, done that. Maybe a nice cosmopolitan would help? I know it does for me at these times...

    aw, I hate those kind of days. For me, if it starts out like that I'm doomed for the rest of the day ... might as well go back to bed LOL.

    Ummm...had many days like that!! The other night I was trying to put a quilt on the frame, and I put the backing on wrong TWICE!!! All that pinning and unpinning!!! Whew!!!

    I almost gave up and went to bed. Glad I didn't. I needed to have it finished that night. Luckily all went well after I got it on right, and I finished before midnight.

    Thanks for all the support from all the folks here. I plan on sitting down to sew again today, but not going to set my hopes to high.
    But sometimes it is just one of those days....

    HST is half square triangles. Sounds like that was a crappy day. Maybe she should have had a drink or two eh?

    Through my considerable years, I have mostly learned that after about two incidents of flawing whatever I am touching, it is best to sit in my chair and watch something stupid on the tv, cause ain't no way I am going to accomplish anything good for this particular day.

    Don't know your age, but welcome to the world of us older folks :roll: :)

    I was working on simple BOM from my LQS, super simple with HST and some flying geese units. First I mess up my up on orientation of HST twice, then I sew on a flying geese unit backwards. At one point I had to wind a bobbin and I cut the top thread, wound the bobbin, put it in and proceeded to sew until the 6 inches of thread on the top ran out.
    I was cutting a Lil Twister wreath project, had it all laid out on my cutting table. Went to move some fabric and created enough of a breeze to blow off some of the blocks and now I can't figure out how to get it back the right way.
    I tried cutting some strips for a very simple swap block I was working on, and for some reason turned my ruler around and cut them 3" instead of 3.5".
    I decided it was time to stop with the quilty projects and sit back with my knitting. So I am knitting on a sock that I have been working on for a while and totally forgot to do one part of the pattern and didn't figure it out until I was four rows past that point.
    Sat down here to read the list for a while and look at pretty pictures, and promptly spilled my tea all over the computer desk.
    I was thinking of reading but I will probably get a lethal paper cut.....

    Nap time yeah. So sorry that your day went bad. However, thank you for your post. You gave me a laugh in thinking of days that I have had like yours. My suggestion when having days like this: find something to laugh about, sleep and if that doesn't help, a good stiff drink. LOL

    Not to worry you are not alone. Many of us, especially myself have had day (or several days) when nothing goes the way we plan or want it to. At this point it would be my suggestion to sit back in an easy chair, read a good book, and drink some hot tea and eat chocolate. Jeanniebelle

    I hear and feel for you Sue.....you aren't alone. And at least you did all this in the wonderful privacy of your own home. I will never live down, nor forget, the day I put my favorite sweater on in the morning, and went shopping all day, without a coat over the sweater, only to discover that night I had worn the sweater backwards all day long!! Wouldn't have been so bad if the "front" was just plain....but it had a pocket on it.

    ROFL....we all have days like that!! Hang in there.....

    I would then go to prayer, or a quiet corner for reflection/quiet time until it passes. That could be me!!!
