There are two quilting tools which are greatly underrated.
The first is Enough Sleep. The second is Coffee. Today, I was short of both, and havoc reigned.
The Husband’s new day shift working hours are punitive. The alarm goes of at 3.30am, and I wave him off at 4.30am, complete with packed lunch, coffee, fruit and water. In theory, I go back to bed and try and get a bit more sleep. Yeah, right. Occasionally, I may be lucky and catch an extra half an hour, but mostly I’m wide awake and getting on with whatever the day holds. Last night we went to bed later than we should for such an early start the next day. And this morning I somehow omitted to have the additional one or two cups of coffee which would snap my brain into gear. Instead, I headed into my sewing room to press on with the Bulldogs quilt.
You see where I’m going with this, don’t you? Yup. Irreparable damage to the white border round the outside of the logo, where my sleep-and coffee-deprived brain failed to control my use of the seam ripper. The language was not one bit nice…
It’s OK, though, I’m making good progress.
