I hit the pillows before midnight ! I had a lovely time before that with the Chookshed Stitchers-many thanks to Chooky it's always fun!
Here's to 2021 being better than 2020! Good things did happen even with THE VIRUS and I try to focus on that with gratitude. For one, no one in my family has contracted THE VIRUS, even though Beth was exposed-she tested negative.

I give up!
I had half of Flipflops at the farm- two quilted and began the other half and soon discovered that there were large pleats forming in the fleece backing.
Why this happened on this quilt and not on the other one is a mystery to me.
At any rate, I will have to unsew what I've done and then I think I'll tie it. Of course I didn't bring the things to tie a quilt! I will work at the unsewing but it isn't going to be finished by Saturday!
I could work on #2020 but it's a big quilt and I just don't have what it takes to do it on the Bernina. So I've decided on big stitch hand quilting. Did I bring that with me? Of course not! It may be finished by Christmas but I kind of doubt it.
I've packed away the Bernina. I should just say here that I do not like the Bernina! It doesn't stitch evenly nor does it hold tension. UGH.
What did I learn? To either hand quilt or pay for quilting. So most of next year's quilts will go out to be quilted. That means I have to find a quilter as the one I used before stopped doing it for others.
On to other, much less stressful things. Like writing out Christmas Cards. I'll begin sorting and packing the truck for the trip home in a day or two. It's easiest done a bit at a time.
Four more days, on the fifth I head home. I'm ready.
