  1. Hi Roseanne, I’m glad that you were able to fix the buttonhole issue and keep going 🙂 No one wants another UFO. Good luck with your projects. Take care.

  2. Too big of an area to stitch it by hand (but not stitching all the way through)? Just a thought. You’ve probably already fixed it by now though. I know you’ll be so happy when it’s all done!! Might be best that it HAS to be completed for him; UFO’s have a way of eating at us, no matter how much we think they’re “hidden away in the closet”! All the best as school starts!

  3. It sounds like I wasn’t the only one feeling some significant frustration regarding a quilting project this past week. Glad you were able to fix it. The start of this school year sounds totally stressful. I hope you can find some ways to calm down the craziness even a little bit. I like the Headspace app on my phone. Take care, my friend—Mary.

    Dang, missing button hole stitches after you started quilting? Not fun! I am proud of you for not putting it away. It is too cute to not finish now!

  5. Rebecca Grace says:

    Oh, my — good luck with that Big Boy quilt for your little one! I can imagine how horrified you were when you discovered the unstitched appliqué during quilting, but good thing you were able to get at it to fix it!

    Hi,
    Keep up the work on the big boy truck quilt…you’ll get it done! Love the snowman runner…so cute..Have a great day!

  7. I hate when I do something like that, Roseanne! But, I’ve been there, done that and bought the t-shirt! LOL As you say, this too shall pass! You will get that sweet boy’s quilt finished and Sue had such a great idea!! My poor daughter has been at school setting up her therapy room for two weeks now, and the kids don’t go back until tomorrow, and actually they won’t go INTO the school until Friday this week. Next week, A-L will go Mondays and Tuesdays and M-Z Thursdays and Fridays, with three days of on-line school the rest of the time – well at least for the first four weeks, but we’ll see how that goes. It will be interesting as I will be helping out with the grands. I need to get some hand-sewing together to take with me to their house! Hmmm, wonder if I could set up a machine down there??!! Nah, easier to work on hand projects! LOL Stay safe, you two!!

    Oh, No! I’m surprised you were able to get anything done at all. Going back to work anytime is difficult but right now it must be beyond stressful. If Dominic’s quilt is a day or two (week or five) late, he won’t be upset. Too hot for a big quilt on the bed right now anyway. Take care of you…come home from work, put your feet up, have a nice cold drink of something and give a big sigh of relief! Stay safe and healthy.

  9. Judy Blauer says:

    I’m so excited to see the finished big boy quilt! That was a great solution to your predicament! Good luck at school! I can’t imagine! Finger crossed for all staff and kiddos wherever they are at this time.

  10. I would surely have pouted for a day or two…but then that would only delay finishing Dominic’s quilt. Oh, the start of the school year must be awful this year. I am so glad to have no one in school (who would have hated the pandemic disruption to his social life). Be kind to yourself, the waters are uncharted and quilting should be your solace. Good luck as you continue prepping for the new year.

    Love the projects and Sue’s suggestion! But I get it!! LOL! So you are reporting to school? Will school be virtual or in classrooms? Stay super safe!!!

  12. chrisknits says:

    I would have just hand stitched the buttonhole in place, cause I hate ripping back!!! LOL. Hope your week is full of all the things you love!

    hope all goes well for the school year – here we heard that nine teachers are in quarantine after the first teacher training happened two weeks ago! I still think they should do the first quarter at least on line but I have no kids in school so it isn’t up to me. I think Dominic’s quilt is going to be great – probably best that you fixed the spot – otherwise it would have driving your crazy to leave it or stew over it.

  14. Yay for sanity-saving Sue! And yes, I do not miss for a nanosecond the startup cray-cray. I really really worry, as do my colleagues, about what’s ahead. I’m having enough worries of my own just having started back teaching yoga two days ago… HOpe you carve out a few minutes of sewing time each week.

  15. Oh, ugh, I hate that when I miss something like that. And yes, bless Sue’s heart for giving a solution, but she seriously shoulda let you pout for at least a day – haha! Good for you tackling that solution and gettin’ on with it. The grin on Dominic’s face when he sees the quilt will be worth all the frustration and wrestling matches! I well recall the craziness of those days before the school year began, so I fully understand what you mean. Hang in – you are right, it will settle down. By the way, no post from me today 🙁 I seriously have no photos, no nothing. I’ve been working on two projects I can’t post about yet, and got so involved in them, I forgot all about upcoming posts. Ah well. I’ll be back next week!

  16. Good luck finishing up D’s quilt, Roseanne! You can do it! And I’m thinking of you as the school year begins – it’s not an easy time for anyone in education right now. Sending you quilty hugs!

  17. Connie says:

    Can hardly wait to see the big boy truck quilt…actual quilting is my fear area…everyone else I see doing it makes it seem so easy, not for me!

  18. Laura says:

    Wishing you the best for the start of this school year, Roseanne! 🙂

  19. I don’t envy you the start of the school year. The SITs first day was yesterday. The University has already had to shut down one of the sororities. They may not make it a week before they shut down campus again. Hope all goes smoothly and you do get some stitching in. Sounds like you will definitely need a bit of sanity before the month is over!
