I think I've found a correlation between hot flashes and anxiety. When I could hear DW snapping those threads around the hook assembly (and making those damn loops) I would get very anxious and then I'd have a huge hot flash. When DW was quilting along fine, we'd be in our little happy groove and everything was fine; no hot flashes.
After fidgeting and fixing the machine yesterday, I was only able to get about 2/3 of the quilt completed for the customer who wanted it by today. If I didn't have to head to work this morning, it would be done before the days end. She wanted to put it into a quilt show next weekend but I'm just not so sure anymore.
I'm off tomorrow, but then have to work again on Monday. I love my job, but working is stupid, especially when it interferes with my quilting and quilt making. We may have to re-think this whole working thing.
