I'm learning...

Over the last couple of weeks I've run into a few boo boos...
  1. I ran out of thread. (I couldn't get myself to drive 30 miles (round trip) for thread.)
  2. Then I realized I wanted my Simplicity throw to be wider so I had to order more material - had to wait for that.
  3. I finally finished my top and the batting that I had wasn't big enough.
So yesterday (before work) my sweet husband was nice enough to stop at a sewing store and pick me up some batting.  We live in SE Arkansas, between Little Rock and Monroe, LA.  I've learned to adjust (alot) because moving from San Jose, CA to SE Arkansas - you have too!  Well, I'm just lucky my husand works in a town that has a sewing store!  Needless to say, I'm learning that it's going to take me some time to get into a groove.  Even though I've run into a few speed bumps, I'm excited to be on this journey.  At least I have my big spool of thread ready to quilt my quilt with...


  1. The great thing about quilting is there's always
    something to learn. Moving from a big city on the west coast to Arkansas involved a lot of learning and adjusting I would think! Do you miss the 'big city'?

  2. Aahhh, the learning curve! I'm still learning. I kept thinking I need to get some of this fabric before it's all sold out - waited too long -- and had to order it from England! And, I own a quilt shop -- geeze, Louise! Anyhoo, I'm so glad you're on the quilting journey with us, Michelle! Fun, fun!
