just one of those days

Today was one of those days that started off with the best of intentions, at times seemed to be cruising along quite nicely, and then suddenly went careening off the road to it's eventual tearful ending.

So instead of sharing all of that with you (which I did, but then deleted!) I will instead share this





ahhhh a night of hand quilting ahead of me. Not really relaxing yet but perhaps at some point it will become so. I'm guessing more relaxing than toddler melt downs on the street, the cat walking through a puddle of red paint and then over cream coloured carpet, butter being painted over one of my sewing books ... whoops sorry I forgot I wasn't going to share!

  1. ooooh wishing you a great day 2morrow. Enjoy your quilting and think nice happy thoughts whilst stitching. One day you will look back on 2day and laugh, another memory to think about, one day. Happy Stitching

    Hi Mel - Sounds like you had the kind of day you would rather forget, but I know one day you will remember fondly the trials and tribulations of a toddler in the house! The quilt looks so fab! (ooh I can even see some of the fabrics that I sent you - thanks for including them!) I hope you enjoy the hand quilting, it is a skill I have yet to master. Hope you have a better day tomorrow. Cheers - Rita

  3. Aw so sorry you had a crappy day.... those photos of your green quilt just make me smile :-) I've never done hand quilting, not sure if my fingers would hold up! Yeah, I'm 28 and feel the Carpel Tunnel creeping in! Dude!
    Maybe today will be better... yes?

  5. ooh I'm sorry you've had a bad day and then I sent you a long boring email too sorry about that! The paint and carpet thing really sounds terrible. I'm in awe that you are quilting your quilt by hand!

  10. Amazing progress on your quilt Mel and it looks just perfect. I love how all the fabrics go together. And I love the fact that you're hand-quilting it, wow! You have more patience than me. I can't wait to see how it looks.
