I got my quilt unstitched and ready to reload today and finished another of those dreaded blocks of the day. Took me most of the day working at it on and off to get it done. I made a mistake, unpicked, resewed, made another, repeat. I haven't seen much talk about them on the various groups so don't know if everyone has given up or just toiling away and wishing they had an excuse for tossing the whole idea.
I would like to quit but I hate to give in so on I go.
The following is something that was sent to me today and I thought you might find it humorous. I think I found it somewhat scary to think these young people are driving cars, voting and may one day be in a decision making position that will affect all our lives. Or perhaps they just had exam days nerves and are now banging their heads against the wall.
