Why'd They Have to Go and Make Things so Complicated????

Why is it that things that are supposed to make our lives easier -- are sometimes so
COMPLICATED????

Still quilting this teeny tiny purple quilt on the frame. Almost done. I could have hand quilted it by now.

I've got Oh so many things in the works - can't wait to share, but it will be another day or two as I don't have much free time and I still have to put the binding on. This has been quite a learning experience.

NOTE TO SELF:
Don't forget that the pedal gets pushed down if you lean against the wooden handles -- even if your finger is underneath @$!@#.

Oh, and make sure to put bobbin IN the machine BEFORE spending 1/2 hour attaching, screwing and wedging the Janome into the quilting frame.
IDIOT.

My assistants are basically only good for three things -- catching a frisbee, eating cookies, and giving fuzzy wet kisses. I think I pay them way too much!
