I'm sorry I'm not going to be very amusing or entertaining, but at least I'm also not going to tempt you into buying fabric you don't need today!
I'm feeling BLAH! And I really, really hate feeling that way on a weekend, because it's such a WASTE! I've had some female issues (not to be too indelicate) plaguing me this weekend, contributing to my general blahness, and I can't even eat a bunch of chocolate to console myself because of this dumb diet. Carrots just don't do it for me.
Remember I said I was determined to finish quilting the monster this weekend? Well, I've had nothing but trouble with my sewing machine, and I think I'm going to need to take it into the shop. It's been sounding a little funny lately and I ran into trouble a week or two ago. A good cleaning, oiling, and needle change seemed to solve the problem well enough, but then it started acting up again this weekend. Cleaning, oiling, and needle change did nothing to help. And what's really annoying is that I just have the outside setting triangles on less than two of the borders left to quilt. Grrrr! Tonight I'll set up my Bernina and maybe see if I can do any quilting on it, but I bought the Juki because I was having problems with tension on free motion quilting with the Bernina--which is what I need to do, so I'm not hopeful. In any event, I'm behind schedule now, so even if the Bernina does work out, I won't have the quilt done in time for my Thimbleberries Club meeting on Wednesday. I know it's only a self-imposed deadline, but still . . . .
Then I was going to clean house today and actually DID clean part of it before I pooped out and decided to take a break. That break's now lasted the rest of the day.
And you know what else? I just realized I never took a bath today. How can a person forget something like that? Well, the plan was to clean house and then clean myself, and you know how far I got on that plan! I guess I should at least go take a nice, relaxing bath.
I have a gazillion sewing projects I've been looking forward to working on once I finished quilting the monster, so you'd think that with a little reprieve due to machine failure I'd be making the most of it and pulling out fabrics and patterns willy nilly, but the blahs kind of make it a lot less interesting and make me a lot less motivated. BLAH! Double BLAH!
I thought about not posting to my blog today, but since I post pretty much every day, I didn't want to worry anyone if there wasn't anything new here. Hopefully the blahs will subside and I'll have something entertaining for you to read soon. I know this will pass. And if it doesn't, I'm eating the chocolate anyway and to heck with the diet! In the meantime, I'll go back to contemplating my navel . . . .
