Fizzled.

Deadlines just don't work for me anymore.

NOT at All!!

I really really wanted to enter

PROJECT QUILTING~Season 2

The challenge this week was fairly easy. I have it all planned; partially cut out; and partially sewn.

But, then yesterday the iron fizzled. It burnt up or something. I won't be able to buy another until Friday and the project is due Saturday.

I am thinking everything that I touch breaks anymore. The sewing machines, the iron...

Well, at least I am getting better on my embroidery stitches.

I don't think I shall enter the challenge again. Something will probably come up and I'll get frustrated again.

But, anyone is welcome to vote on the projects. I can't wait for that...usually there are some great ones!!

Don't you just hate it when that happens? Isn't it funny how several pieces of technology/machinery all choose the same time to go wron? For me, it's my printer and the cooker hob this week.

Oh no! Sorry about your iron. :( It's very frustrating when things don't go the way we want them!

That's always the way it seems to go. Hang in there ....

At least you haven't broken the baby -YET!?!?! :)

Don't give up....

I swear they build stuff to break down after a certain period, nowadays. I just replaced a 30 year old music system. I doubt I'll see anything last that long again!

Have been missing you! Sorry to hear things have been rough for a little while, but thanks for the stitchery pattern sites. I think we go through stages of being with our machine, or quiet time with just a needle. Hang in there and God bless your day! Debi
