I may NEVER get this quilt done, but will heed your warning and not try micro stippling. I HAVE been thinking of trying pebbling, after watching...OH, NO...a youtube video! LOL
    Well I'm right there with ya, with my ripper in hand. I've been working on piecing today and its been one of those days where you lay it out and something happens between the layout and stitching...It may be that I took Sew4nin advice...LOL Glad I could make you laugh!

    I was just going thru some of my books tonight to get some new ideas when I read the tip about singing or humming to keep from tensing up. Now I will have to send everyone outside so they don't lay down and laugh themselves silly because of my singing. I am so bad I know that music lessons won't even help me.

    Ha! I was going to recommend a little Bailey's in your coffee.... but the wine sounds much better!! I guess glass should be not too big or the microstipling could become macrostipling and that would not be good....

    Ditto!!! Wine works that way with a lot of things - when you work out that fine line between too little and too much. Just kind of smooths things over!
