Murphy's Law, I Guess

Today is day 30 of Blogtoberfest. Only one more day to go.

Did you know that Amy from Amy's Creative Side is having a blogger's quilt show this week? Well she is! And I wanted to show my primitive flowers quilt, but unfortunately it is still not done. Oh, I've been working on it, but things just aren't going right for me. I broke my thread many times, changed threads, put a new needle in, re-threaded my machine - but still it kept giving me problems. Then Mimi got into the mess. Walking all over my quilt. Trying to get my attention by scratching my fabric bin. I have put her down for her nap now, but she is not asleep yet.

Just pretending to sleep.

And then, as a final assault on myself, I ran over my thumb with my machine when I was just about finished all of the quilting. Ouch! That hurt. I am putting the quilt down for awhile. I hope to get the binding on later and sew it down tonight. For now I think I will go and do some shopping. Still haven't bought any Halloween treats yet. I think I will buy something especially for me. I really need something to make my thumb feel better - something chocolate!

Auw, that is bad luck and painful. Beterschap! Murphy's Law is well known to me too. Hope he disappeares soon taking his law with him.

Big ouch for your thumb. I hope you did treat yourself to something nice.

Sometimes you have to take a break from a project when it all starts to go wrong. I think it's the universe telling me it's time to take a break.
