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!
