Sneak Peek

I have every intention to finish this quilt top this weekend. However, our power inexplicably went out on Saturday from 11:30 to 8:30. Not cool, my friends.

I spent a good chunk of last night working on it instead.

I was making good time. I finished sewing the sashing on, making the strips of squares for the border, sewed those on. I was really making progress. My goal of finishing the top before I left this weekend to camp with Shawn's family looked like it might happen.

Then I realized I was out of white muslin and it was too late to go out and buy some more. Looks like this isn't getting finished until next week now! Darn!

Ugh! Just reading your post got me frustrated! I hate when:
1. I run out of bobbin thread an inch or two from the end of the final row.
2. I cut my backing fabric just a little too small.
3. The fat quarters I buy are cut too small and now I don't have enough for the pattern.
4. I buy the wrong batting...online!

Just a few miserable things that have happened to me lately! Here's hoping your week gets better!
