Count me in on the pity party.
I had to frog an entire quilt back to three layers this weekend and that means I won't get to enter the Hoffman Challenge as planned. It turned out that my backing was stretched too much, my batting had too much loft and the stabilizing stitching and the quilting just exagerated the problem with the backing. I ended up with pleats and puckers everywhere, stitches that ran the gamut of lengths from OK to the microscopic ones that are murder to frog.
Oh yeah, did I mention that my walking foot didn't do its job, just mashed the snot out of the quilt? Ordered a new foot, will see if that makes a difference. While I'm waiting for the foot to arrive, I'll redo the sandwich and try not to stretch the backing so tight this time.
Enough pity, time to get off my fanny and DO!
Thanks for listening
It's Quilting! You're supposed to be having fun!
Prayers for your family.
Don't dwell on the fact that there is a history of stroke in your family, just trust in God to take care of you. I share your concern, as both my grandmothers suffered multiple strokes in their later years, but I'm trusting in God that I can have a good life for whatever span He has allotted to me.

Margaret Weber: not being able to find a job
My little tantrum is insignificant compared to you not having a job!! I'm sorry because I'm belly aching when I'd rather see people who work hard have a good paying job!!! Good luck and I hope it turns around for you soon!!
