My BOD's for last week only show five because we did the medallion on Saturday and Sunday.

|Ugly Sweater #9|
Today will be much of the same minus and ugly sweater. I was expecting a quilt from Vicki today to work on with DW, but the weather being what it is will keep her from delivering it. The charity quilt is still on the frame and I hesitate to take it off until Mike gets back from the shop. He's the best at getting those bindings attached.
Speaking of Mike, the machine, Mike, the tech called Jim yesterday about Mike, the machine. Of course, Mike the tech, couldn't get Mike, the machine, to skip stitches for him. Jim instructed him to put a walking foot on and sew through about four layers of fabric (and the machine has never had trouble with that before a few days ago). Mike, the tech, said he'd run Mike, the machine, through it's paces and get the bottom of his problem(s). Having said all that, the machine isn't yet done.
So, I struggle with Jay and the slippery interfacing on these memory blocks. I just have to sew very slow and be patient with my construction. Until this thing is at least "roughed in", I can't move along to anything else. I'm afraid if I detour into other waters I'll lose my momentum and the project will be forever in finishing.
P.S. If anybody ever asks me again to construct one of these for them, for the record, I will not.
