This is not my week for technology
You know we all have those weeks where everything in some aspect of our lives goes wrong. This is my week of technology challenges. We are having tons of rain and, being on satellite, we've had more than our share of internet outages. Add to that some issues with Weebly and the fact that it takes them 24 hours to respond to an escalated issue and you can probably feel my frustration.
Last night I had a "therapy" session with a friend over a glass of Macallan and got things back in perspective.
Today the landscaping people arrived and are getting some drainage issues resolved that will allow me to mosaic the front wall of the basement. So that's a happy event.
We aren't doing this so that I can mosaic the wall. We seriously needed to do it anyway and seriously needed to replace the 25 year old cracked concrete sidewalks. So new grading and gravel and things should be pretty for another decade or so around here.
In other good news it was a spectacular football weekend for me this weekend with the 49 - 0 blowout of Boston College and the Eagles win over the Bears. Both team are too new to expect that to be a weekly trend but it made for a very happy weekend and lots of good stitching hours.
I'm one flower and one football game away from finishing the second border. I'll do the corners after I get all 4 of the borders sewn onto the center of the quilt.
My stitching isn't perfect.
But stand back a little and it looks just fine.
Thursday night should take care of this one.

your stitching looks near perfect to me! we have been having issues with slow internet around here - don't know if it is just us or everyone - but they need to speed it up some.

So sorry you've been dealing with tech issues. Your stitches look great to me. Be kind to yourself.

I was starting to get concerned with your silence. Glad it was just technical difficulties. I'm glad at least the college game went well. (We bleed Giants blue in this house.) that appliqe quilt is going to be absolutely gorgeous! Will you hand quilt it or go with Flo Mo?

Those technical issues can certainly make you crazy.

I need some therapy myself. I will email you and let you know what is going on. Your stitching is beautiful!

Good luck with your landscaping and drainage work. Your hand stitching is really coming along. I wonder, since all the shapes are outlined with the dark blanket stitching, do plan to blanket stitch the sashing too, once you get the borders on?
