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.
Diamond Jubilee is a flimsy!
