Frustration Station

Conjunction Junction, what's your function? Anyone?



This is my sister's Christmas quilt. Laying on my king-size bed. It's enormous.

I had to return my mom's sewing machine for a few days and was unable to finish it in time for Christmas morning, so she opened a basted quilt.

Starting Christmas Day I got knocked out by the almost-flu and could barely stand for about 5 days.

Once I wasn't as weak as a baby chicken [are they weak? I don't actually know...] and I got the machine back I quilted like a madwoman, trying to finish it before she left for school again.

Alas, I ran out of white thread on the night before she left with just that space under and slightly to the right of the blue X remaining to quilt.

Believe you me, I've been parked at Frustration Station for most of the making of this quilt.

Positive note? My cat loves it.
