And that`s exactly how it was on Monday hence my funk yesterday for which I`m sorry.
I would just like to say that the swaps I`m in are organised fabulously and the swap mamas are supportive, encouraging and super helpful. My downer on swaps is all to do with the mysteries of the world postal `system` and my quilting inadequacies!
So on Monday, after an inauspicious start to the day, I spent the afternoon quilting my For the Love of Solids mini using a square spiral design within each wonky log cabin and some pale green thread. I wasn`t loving it but I carried on. That was my mistake.
As I came to the last wonky log cabin I ran.out.of.pale.green.thread. Hence my funk yesterday as with no LQS to run to, I had to rip out all the quilting. It took hours! I changed tack, got the painter`s tape out and quilted it using a taupe thread in an abstract straight line design.
I`ve tried my best and just hope my partner likes it...
...she`s a serial swapper and knows what she likes. I have to make a small something to go with it and then it`s ready to be posted.
My big worry now is my Mouthy Stitches` pouch. There is linen coming to me and it should have arrived by now and it`s this kind of thing that causes swap stress. If it doesn`t arrive today then it`s Plan B...
