Wednesday

So what's doing with you this fine Wednesday morning? I picked up my three quilts from Diana, my quilter, and have busily been sewing on bindings.  The timing is perfect because we've had a bit of a cold snap.

Sure, it's not like we've got snow, but it's been pretty chilly here.  It seems sunny and should be warm, but you step outside and that wind feels a little icy.  Anyway, bundling up with a quilt seems perfect.
 
I had one of those lesson learning moments with this little stack of binding.  It's made of 10 inch strips left over from my thimbles.  It's very cheerful.  There are a  lot  of seams, so I decided not to do a little test run around my quilt, pinning the binding down to make sure that there were no seams on the corners. I mean with all those seams I didn't think it could be avoided.  I stitched up one side and then WHAM, right along the bottom, I run into a problem. A big chunk of binding is exactly the same as one of the thimbles. What are the odds I thought as I stopped and took out that chunk of binding and moved it to the end. Yeah, what are the odds?
 
The odds are pretty darn good. not a foot later it happened again.
 
Well you just have to laugh right?  Hope the week is treating you well. xo

Glad you could laugh it off... not that you were _in stitches_ but a little humor can help!

Yep, you just have to laugh. Even if it's hysterical, maniacal laughter. The alternatives are just not worth contemplating.

Glad you're making progress!

Doh! I wish I could think of something witty to say, but your other commenters seem to have it covered. At least it provided entertainment for your flock!
