I couldn't wait to get my sewing side of the room back in order so I could get back to work on what I thought was an easy, stress free project.
It's not. My scrappy sashing is a nightmare. I tried so many ways to get it to work out mathematically so the little blocks line up in a way that made sense. Of course they wouldn't so I was irked.
After I gave up on that mess I decided it might be better to work on something I knew was easier so I picked up the rings quilt only to find......
....the blue Chaco marker I had been using for the border was missing. I looked everywhere and couldn't find it. I was even more irked. I went online to get another and read some reviews only to discover people complaining that the blue DOESN'T WASH OUT. So now I have a permanent blue lines where all my straight line quilting is? At that point my level of irk went off the charts. I was done for the day. Maybe the week.
Grumble, grumble....I should have just done what I usually do. When quilting straight lines I used to just use a piece of masking tape to show me the way. Some times the old ways are the best.
