So close but yet so far
I have advanced far enough of completing the "quilting" of the first row of my Crazy Rainbow Rows to have reached the final hoop area and even the final inches of stain glass edging to be sewn on. I can't believe I didn't finish it last night.
I am so disappointed in myself about this. I sat down yesterday about 5 pm to finish and forgot that I had to cook dinner.
So several hours later with dishes done, dogs fed and full belly I sit down once again to finish it.
I got about 1/2 way done at at 11 pm I just could not keep my eyes open any longer. My stitches were getting crooked and it was definitely time to call it a day.
So now I'm sitting here extremely bored at work with nothing to do but sit here and think gee I wish I was home that last hoop would be done by now! It's almost like torture sitting here at work with nothing to do when so much is left undone at home.
I am so much looking forward to pulling that hoop off, laying the quilt flat and getting a good view of how she looks in progress...ugh....another few hours. I hope to be able to post a photo tomorrow the the complete row and how it looks in comparison to the other unifinished, un-stained glass edges. I think you will all be surprised along with me at how much better the colors and fabrics pop with the lace, velvet and satin edges that I have applied to the purple row. At least I certainly hope so, but you never know until it's off and sitting before your eyes.
Sew....anticipation for this evening fills every second of the day....as the minutes are ticking away the moments that make up a dull day....
