The Quilting Goddesses are messing with me again.

Laugh all you want but these ladies get their kicks out of messing with me (all of us, I'm sure).  I've prayed to them, I've thanked them but apparently, lately, I haven't paid them enough attention.  I am fixing that right now!

Today's prayer (feel free to use yourself if you've fallen victim to their hijinks):

"Please, please, oh Quilting Goddesses, take back my newly developed turrets tendencies when I'm trying to quilt, machine bind a quilt, or sew a straight line when I'm piecing my tops together. Please refrain from grabbing my fabric or my machine when I'm sewing and wrenching it in another direction for 4 of 5 stitches.  I like my seam ripper, but I really don't think I need any more practice ripping.  My previous post was not a lie, I feel like a frog with all of it. Can I please just be a quilting princess again? Thank you. Thank you for all you do (even the laugh I'm afforded with your antics!)"

Oh, and I also want to send a little "I'm sorry" to all of you as well. I am sorry I haven't yet posted my finished table runner tops with the quilting or the finish of my airplane quilt. I just have to get the pictures uploaded and instead, yesterday, I went to Hancock's of Paducah and learned why I was better off not knowing what, exactly, was in that store only 1.5 hours away from my current home. -sigh- $82.50 later and 3 new projects in my head. I really need to get cracking on my WIPs!

Cheers! Beck

You're only 1.5hr from Hancock's? Oh I'm jealous. I've only been there once. I went there a couple of years ago when I went to the Quilt Show. (I WILL go back someday!!) We (the group I went with) have pictures of the tables in the back room and the fabric tables. OhMiGosh! I don't even want to remember how much I spent there. *sigh*

I LOVE ordering from Hancocks.... they just had a free shipping sale so I ordered some stuff despite my resolve to use what I have!

The place must be HUGE....

I buy stuff from Hancocks all the time. I'm NEVER going to get there because it's 10,000 miles away, so I'm working on being"international customer of the year" with my purchases. I'm pretty sure I'm sending one of the Hancock kids through college.

I'm not doing so crash on my WIP's this month either Beck. People keep posting about awesome baking sites that I surf for hours instead of doing my quilting. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Hope the quilting goddesses read your prayer and decide to cut you some slack.
