Boo Hoo.....

I don't have any photos cause I'm too sad about the fact that my machine quilting was a disaster!

I am now practicing my reverse stitching. It's not fun!

I'll have to forgo having my second TTS quilt done by the deadline. I am going to hand quilt it and it will take a while!


GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE ELSE THOUGH FOR THE DEADLINE!!

ON BEHALF OF CHOOKYBLUE - CRACK CRACK! LOL

Reverse stitching. Two words I hate. Hope it is all going well for you today.
