Shopping and Sewing

It's been a busy day of shopping in the morning and sewing in the afternoon.  We went out for breakfast and then off to the mall to try and do some shopping.  Mostly I just walked from store to store.  Even with a list I couldn't find anything I wanted to buy.  So not one gift was bought today.  I take that back, I did find a small gift for my grandson, but that's it.

This afternoon I got back to work on my daughter's gift, and got the quilting done on two of them.  However, on the very last row of stitches on the second one, I realized that it was humping up in the middle!  I kept trying to convince myself that it would be okay when it was bound, but in the end, I gave up and started ripping it out.  Unfortunately, it's very dark thread on dark fabric and it's a real pain to take out, so I'm not done yet.  I got very discouraged and decided I needed to something else, and started on a DJ block.  Even with that, I selected a difficult one, and was able to complete only about half of the block.  So, no pictures tonight.....maybe next time.

I have decided that you really need to be in the shopping mood to find anything.

Sorry about the reverse sewing that you had to do. That is so discouraging.

I hate when I have those kinds of days. I know it's not much comfort, but we all have them.....and I'm sure tomorrow will be a bit brighter for you!
