More than one person questioned why I had stopped working on the Taj Mahal pillow when I was so close to finishing. At the end of that day, when I was tired, I had hit a snag and (wisely!) decided to set it aside before I made a horrible mistake.
But part of me resisted going back to it to deal with that snag because in truth I was pretty sure it would still be an issue even when I was bright eyed and bushy tailed.
This morning I decided to just deal with it - and in the end it was such a headache that I "adjusted" the pattern. The good news is that I'm pretty sure Hilda won't notice - at least I hope not! I've actually started "quilting" it (mostly buttonhole) and with just one appointment later this afternoon I expect to have the top completed and ready for pillowing by tomorrow. Heads up, Colleen!
When I hung my new hummingbird calendar in the kitchen I obviously didn't look at it too closely, because last night I noticed something didn't seem right. And sure enough it's a 2016 one! When Tom bought it at Barnes & Noble in the calendar department he never thought that he'd need to double check the year (which, by the way, is quite small and hard to notice!)
