Hello Cuties, after I tell you about my day, you will think like me, I have patience!

Let's see, first the bottom of my thread spool broke, causing my thread to hang on the pieces of spool, causing my needle to break (chain reaction). Then after design was stitching SO good, I thought I'd leave my machine,I just had to go to the little girls room. No, no, no I came back and thread had broke but machine was stitching. I stopped it and thought I had backed it up to where the thread broke but undoubtedly not, because I have a gap on the bottom of my rose petals. (Just pretend the wind took it...sigh) so I decided to make another one, because I love the design. I changed thread color on the second rose. I'm happy now.
Among other things I dropped my scissors I can't tell you how many times today.On the first bag, when sewing the back to the front, it didn't catch the fabric where it should have and I had a bubble all across the top, so I ripped (sigh) and I sewed back together on my regular machine.
I did remember through all this, to stitch my name on the backs. So if you can have patience when things don't go just right you might end up with 2 pretty little bags too!-lol
And Cuties another good thing, if you go to the link below, the design is only a dollar! How good is that!

During all this my hubby did bring me some ice cream-ah.... One thing good about being quarantined, when your hubby makes a 6 quart freezer of ice cream, you don't have to share with anyone but him!-lol-lol

I see nothing wrong and it look great! You even matched your colors to your fabric. I almost missed your name though. I've had those kinds of frustrating days. I never leave my machine and my rear sure gets sore, even sitting on a pillow. I'm having what I think are top tension problems. It gets hung up then suddenly releases and jerks my thread and then a winding mess thru the tension. I hate to take it to be 'fixed'. Cost a whole lot. I've tried every threading way possible except for standing on my head.

Both bags are beautiful, such a shame they put you through the wringer to get them done. Sweet Hubby, but I'd have to pass on the ice cream. Dairy makes my sinuses stuffy. Aargh! I hope the find a cure/vaccine for this virus soon. Blessings to all.

Hubby likes ice cream like a baby likes a bottle-lol-I like it every once in a while but he could eat it everyday and does. I guess I never thought about the allergy aspect....must be bad, though...sorry.
I hope the medical field comes up with something soon too and life can get on track again and not a danger/fear of this. Take care and thanks

Perfect design to compliment your fabric! And ice cream, especially homemade, makes everything better. :0)

Lol😂 he brought me banana but it had also made chocolate a few weeks ago. He usually makes at least 2 freezers and sometimes 3 so that’s 3 to 4 1/2 gallons. The kids & grands sure like it when they come too but now they stay away....

I knew you would create something pretty. Had to smile about your day. I had some of those, I am glad the result was 2 pretty bags.

Dropping the scissors tells me everything I need to know. You were too agitated to be trying to sew. Some days it soothes and some days it doesn't.

I just kept embroidering on. Sometimes you just need to put it up, but I didn’t this time. I was determined to finish.
