Today is friday the 13th?

Yesterday was a rotten day. Not in a life-changing way, just one of those terrible horrible no good very bad days that happen to us all. A pair of glasses got broken. We had to throw out most of the contents of our freezer. While my husband and I were sorting through that mess, trying to determine what was still edible, my daughter's pet bird died.

I've been trying to get my fifteen minutes of sewing done early in the day, before life can start to unravel. That was one of my big obstacles last year -- I'd get upset about something and instead of quilting when the opportunity arose, I'd be sulking about whatever stupid thing it was.

Hospital billing errors and messed up freezer door mechanisms are just stupid -- there's no other word for it. (Maybe a couple, but I'm trying not to say those in front of the children.) Once they've been taken care of to the best of our ability, spending the rest of the day upset about them doesn't help anyone. I don't know if I can stop myself from getting upset, but I can try to keep it from sabotaging the rest of my goals.

I've got one finish to show off this week, a baby quilt that I used to play with a new free motion quilting pattern.

Hoping your day goes well today. I love your finish! That's what I'm trying to do, practice FMQ while making smaller quilts.

I figure you got all your bad luck over with on one day...Should be clear sailing from here!

Good job on finishing the baby quilt. It is sweet!

I always think a Monday the 13th is worse than a Friday the 13th. Watch out for those! Sorry to hear about your day. I'm having one of those days today. Sometimes it seem like a bit much to take in one day. I guess it is better to get it over in one day than to spread it over a whole week.

Love the doll quilt. Wish I could see the FM...I am a fm pattern junkie!

Hopes your Saturday the 14th turned out better than yesterday!

Whoop Whoop!

I'm so sorry you had such a horrible day - I've been through that freezer situation recently too, and it's no fun! We were cooking up thawed food like crazy people for two days to save it, putting it back in the freezer as already prepared meals.

Your little quilt is lovely! Whoop whoop!!
