One of the things I was very excited to get finished was my ABC quilt top. In fact I hoped to show you a completely finished quilt today. But no. This is what I will show you. O is for Octopus.

In principle a quick hand sewing type stitch is an awesome idea. In reality - na - ah. You use invisible thread for the top, which breaks all. the. time. And it is sooooo slow. Really, it would have been quicker to hand quilt properly. And the worst thing is, I've done one block wrong. It needs unpicking and it takes forever. Fail.
In fact the whole thing has annoyed me so much I put it aside and made a whole new baby quilt in the same time it took me to quilt half of this. Gah. But more about that later!
Anyway - tantrum over - how are you doing? I can see there has been some catching up. Although some of you are being conspicuously absent. I won't name and shame you, because we all sew when we can, but I am very keen to see how you are going!
Come and link up and say Hi ... I hope your quilting is less annoying than mine.
