A Frustrating Day

This was suppose to be a day of quilting.  NOT!!!!  I am so darn frustrated.  I set up my ancient (almost antique) Handiquilter in the garage.  Put my beloved Brother PQ 1500 on it and set about getting all set to quilt a really old UFO that I’m determined to finish in the near future.  I had huge skipped stitches, I mean huge.  I tried everything I could think of.  Changed the needle twice, changed the thread, changed the tension, put thread condition on the thread and whatever else I could think of.  Nothing worked.  I finally gave up.  Took it off the #@*#@ antique Handiquilter, layered it, pinned it and now I’m going to quilt it on my Brother but with out the frame.  What a big waste of time. 

Here’s the quilt (with zippers still attached) laying on the floor but ready to go back under the needle.


I think this is an old mystery I did years ago.  If you know what it is, please tell me. 




  1. Days like that can be so irritating. Good luck on the Brother!


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I love knowing that I'm not alone, blogging into thin air.
