Grumble, Grumble

I pulled my Hoffman Challenge post because I think I jinxed myself by putting it up. Nothing is going together right on this. I can't find quite the right fabric, so in trying to make the best of a second rate lot, I've changed my mind a dozen times. Yesterday I thought I had it, and began to sew. I finished enough to put it on the wall, and realized there are still problems, so I will continue to try to tweak it. Very discouraging. In the meantime the Take It Farther February thing hangs over my head. Can't do anything till Monday anyway because we're going to Chicago today. It's going to be the classic, miserably cold Chicago day, windy with temperatures that feel below zero. The mink coats will be out in full force tonight; almost makes me wish I had one!

The challenge is hanging over my head too. Where does the time go?

Sometimes I am in the tweaking mood and sometimes not. Give it a rest and come back to it with fresh eyes on Monday.

I hope the Windy City blows in fresh ideas for you, Kay!

I just noticed that one of your recent reads was Little, Big. I started this and put it aside and keep forgetting about it. I put it aside because I inadvertently read a spoiler, not because I wasn't enjoying it.

Oh ratz, I was busy and missed your HC post. I second what Debra said: Give it a rest. Then turn it upside down and look at it that way.

If its any consolation, I haven't started my TIf yet either. Remember though, this is supposed to be FUN~~ don't stress on it too much! I know the Hoffman piece will come together for you.
