I really should have known saying I would have my fall shower curtain completed and hung by September 1st was pushing it just a teensy bit. I still have to put buttonholes across the top for the rings on the shower rod to go through. Then it will be done.
But, drat and blast, guess who is having no luck at all getting the buttonhole attachment on her machine to work? Granted, I haven't used it in a couple of years but it's always been super-simple to use. For some reason, today I can't get the computer programmed correctly. Operator error? Could be. The store where I purchased the machine is 130 miles away but they are very good about giving any help they can over the phone so that's my next step . . . as soon as I have time to make the phone call during their business hours.
I'll be away from home all day tomorrow so looks like Friday will be my first chance to see if I can get things straightened out via phone.
In the meantime, I need input regarding this baby quilt top I made a while back. I used colors and fabrics that pushed me outside the box . . . which is supposed to be good for us now and then, right?
A certain person who shall remain nameless (I'm protecting the guilty here rather than the innocent) took one look at it and said it was AWFUL! I didn't think it was bad at all, but maybe I'm not really "seeing" it after working through the whole design and construction.
The colors (on my computer screen anyway) show pretty true. Perhaps the deep purple is showing a smidge more on the blue side than it really is but otherwise it's a fairly realistic representation of the coloration.
Truly, I'd like honest opinions from you all. I know my dog will be very happy with it for her bed if no one but me thinks anyone would buy it for a baby. Don't be afraid. Be brutal, be honest, lay it on me. What do you think?
