Must have been something in the air. Mom was having a lot of problems breaking needles on her Juki and big frame. Did all the normal stuff. Futzed around. Changed needle, rethreaded, cleaned etc. Walked away. Came back. Loosened the quilt in the frame and voila. Too tight.
I admit to being distracted tonight. Yet another weird day. Wanted to watch the special Gray’s Anatomy and thought it was really stinko. It managed to crank up my weird mishmosh of stuff. Which is really too bad since I felt pretty good when I walked in the door – I came in, made a nice little plate of dinner noshies and was doing a little this and that and then… Chatted with mom a bit about an even weirder show that they watched. Moral of that story: people will do just about anything you suggest if you let them do it on TV.
Finally say – ok I’m ready to quilt. I start. I realize I’m sort of going in the wrong direction which is away from me. And yes BLAM! I hit a pin and break the needle. No damage to anything other than the needle but BLAM nontheless.
So here I am. Taking a break and trying to refocus.
While I’m sorting all that out, here’s a great link that came my way via one list or another today or maybe both: HOW TO STEAL LIKE AN ARTIST (AND 9 OTHER THINGS NOBODY TOLD ME). Yeah you can thank me and Gerrie Congdon.
Had a nice time chatting with this couple today which was fun. Didn’t seem like they had a website yet but this turned up on search. They live in a huge restored church which is probably good since he seems to do some big works. At the end I find out that his wife quilts!! You just never know.
OK my cup of tea is done. It’s about time for hitchcock (what a great show) and then star trek (oh jean luc) and then I guess I have to get some sleep.
