Diary Quilt Tuesday - On Wednesday

I promised that I would post these every Tuesday but yesterday I was sick, so here it is today.
This is what I felt like doing all week last week.....screaming. The very intense quilt I have been working on is nearing the end. I am anxious to move on to other projects but won't until I get this one done.

I sewed three pieces on to all 48 sections only to find out I had the wrong measurements. This represented hours of work, I could not believe I read them wrong. Or so I thought......after ripping out all 144 pieces I realized they were sewn correctly and I had just ripped them all out, and would have to do them again. Now I also wanted to cry long with scream. People in the house are tiptoeing around me, my sewing room looks like hazardous waste area and I am dreaming about sewing on this quilt! I don't know how much longer this is going to take but I am thinking of power sewing Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

On a nicer note my husband Bob gave me some herbs to grow for Valentine's day. I made him oatmeal cookies with raisins. We go for a more low key day, plus I looked lovely after I slept most of the day and never got out of my pajamas, so very romantic!

  1. I'm sorry you didn't feel well yesterday. Our day was so low key my husband wasn't even here, he's on the road.
    I love the block and I can relate about being driven to scream.

  2. Oh my, how frustrating for you. Sure hope things are looking up soon but you did get an adorable screaming block out of it!

  3. Kelly!
    I don't ever say out loud or write this but this deserves.."I almost peed in my pants"
    I am sorry, I should not laugh but I am giggling as I write this.. You make me laugh! Oh you are so funny!
    This block really, really, reeeeally
    conveys how you feel.
    Love those eyes!

  4. So sorry that you didn't feel well and that you had such a frustrating experience with your quilt. Your block is great and really shows how you feel!!!

    I think your Valentine's presents to each other were very thoughtful and sweet. We like a low key day too.

    Hope you are feeling better soon and that you have no more trouble with that quilt project!

  5. Wow, you really know how to convey frustration in fabric!! Just amazing! I wish I could zip over and give you a hand to get this quilt done! thinking step at a time and you'll get there. Ithink herbs is a romantic gift. I thought at first it was Sage Parsley, Rosemary and Thyme like the Simon and Garfunkel song, I love that song. Good luck in finishing the quilt,!!!

  6. Sorry about all the strange grammer in my comments when I type on my phone all sorts of words pop up. I'm just you get the gist of what Im trying to say.. :)

  7. Oh, my! I don't know whether to laugh or cry with you! I sure hope that you got to eat a bunch of those cookies! I can't wait to see THE quilt. Are you going to call it the Quilt from L?

  8. OH NO!
    would it help to tell you that I've done that too? not on the same scale, but I have done that!
    i feel for you pal
    tgif - you'll be ready for a glass of wine at 5 today :)


I love to read your comments, they make my day!
