I Will Not Curse. I Will Not Curse. I Will Not Curse.


Y'all, some days the beads just do not want to play nicely.  Apparently today is one of those days.

I've been sitting here, trying to get something - ANYTHING - to work for Christine and Therese's Time to Stitch challenge, and it just ain't happening.

All I seem to be able to make is butt ugly blobs 'o beads.  That was not the title of the challenge.

So before I start hurling around the kind of language that would've made my grandmother blush and sailors chuckle, I'm gonna set things aside and watch some basketball.  As Scarlett would say, "tomorrow is another day"!

Definitely take a break and try anew tomorrow. I'm always surprised what a little break can do for the mind.

Which stitch is giving you trouble? I'd be happy to try to help if you need.

And the Cards didn't disappoint! Great game...now back to the bead table. Actually, I'm impressed that you've already begun this challenge piece, I'm still working on my Bead Soup!

Always best to put the needle down when things are going bad. I really hope they fall in place for you today. You did more than I did! I opened the videos yesterday to learn spirals. I panicked and worked on our She Made challenge instead. So TODAY I will attempt spiral. I think you are on to a good hop idea though..."Projects Gone Wrong"

Better luck tomorrow, or is that today? I am still so far behind.

I just can't imagine they are that ugly! You are way ahead of me, as I haven't started yet.... gotta get at it! I am really dreading the spiral as I don't do well with directions :)
