…..when everything you try goes awry? I had one of THOSE days yesterday.
SIGH. I wanted to make a journal cover using a little design I'd stitched from Sweetheart Tree. Well, got the fabric cut and decided it wasn't going to work. OK. Maybe a needle book. I couldn't understand the instructions (for some nefarious reason), so decided "Heck with it, I'll make a pillow."
I got so intent on cutting the fabric just so, my left index finger ran into the rotary cutter.
Do you know how much a finger can bleed?!?!? It hurt like the dickens. I wrapped it up and walked out to the barn where DH was working to see if he thought I needed stitches. (Yes, it was that bad). He/We decided it wasn't bad enough for a ride into town to the ER, so I wrapped it in a bandage and went back to my sewing.
The little pillow looks B-A-D. I used some vintage lace, trying to rescue it - just not working. OK, so I need to rip out all the stitches and start over.
I decided to give it up and do more stitching on the medieval tile I'd started. Working away on that, I discovered I was off a stitch. hmmmmm - I'll make up for it…..stitched some more. DRAT. The "making up for it" looked (here we go again) B-A-D. I'll need to rip out all those stitches.
SIGH. Today will be a better day. I just know it!
