Still waiting...

I must say this has been a really off week for me to say the least.  Quilting plans have not gone as planned.  Which has really set back my whole accomplishment goal that I had in mind.  I'm still waiting for the sewing machine  to be completely fixed.  The main thing was the timing.  Now that is perfect again, the bobbin case decided it was going on strike and not hold it's tension anymore.  So now I wait for a new one to be delivered to the house.  But that won't be until Monday.

So while I wait, again, I started to work on my little idea with all the colorful yarn at my disposal.  Yes I have some serious stash hanging around the craft room.  But you know how that is all going to work.  I'm not going to put this down until finished which means the quilt will not get finished until probably the end of next week "again".
 During that time I will help Em out on a smallish sized quilt that she decided that she just absolutely had to make for someone special.  It's just waiting for her to get finished cutting out the binding strips from scraps from what seems to be a never ending supply around here.  There are two other little projects just waiting on the sidelines patiently as she gets this one finished.
 Wee one decides that she also needs to create something since everyone else seems to be busy with whatever catches their fancy.  It seems everyone will be getting new melty bead creations soon.
I'm thinking the yarn project will be just perfect this weekend being that the weather just can't seem to make up it's mind.  Within five minutes it will snow, hail, rain and sunshine all for our enjoyment.  I'm thinking I'm going to throw something ooey-gooey and chocolatey into the oven to along with all the yarn time that will be happening this evening and the rest of the weekend.  Let's just hope the chocolatey goodness lasts that long.

I'm not so sure.


  1. Well, Kar, I'm thinking we're all going to have to take this craft thing in stride. Sometimes it seems our plans work out and other times I wonder why we even plan! lol You with your machine and me living in a place where I can't buy a zipper within 70 miles. Needless to say I can't really craft on a whim.

    I'm forcing myself to continue destashing until I can get to a Joann's. And when I do, I'll cross my fingers that my bobbin isn't all wonky.

    I know that your yarn creation will be wonderful. And whatever the girls come up with will be fabulous too. :-)

  2. I like how you think.

    Ooey gooey and yarn. Yup, works for me.

    Have a great weekend.

  3. Such sewing machine woes. That has to be very frustrating. Chocolate is a great cure for what ails you!

  4. I am so sorry about your sewing machine. I hope that you are able to retrieve it today, as planned. Your yarn has me very curious about what you are making! :o) Do tell. :o)
    Sincerely, Trish

  5. Sorry to hear you are still waiting on your sewing machine to cooperate, i know how frustrating that can be. Sometimes life has other plans than what we schedule. I really love that your girls craft with you, so great! Here's to hoping your chocoate lasts, haha. Have a good week friend. Looking forward to seeing all your projects.

  6. Still waiting.....oh, my goodness!
    How frustrating!
    I hope it arrives soon.
    Your girls are busy in the craft room, though, thats awesome, their mom will have to blog about their projects too;)
