This is starting to get funny now...

You'll have to read the last post (from, like 2 hours ago) to see why this is starting to get funny. After screwing up a long piece of fabric for the border on my watermelon quilt yesterday, I started to press more fabric just now to start a NEW border . Well, I couldn't find my water bottle. My little girl had been playing with it and all I could find was the nozzle/spray part of it, so being the clever person that I am ;), I grabbed a cup out of the kids bathtub, put some water in it and stuck the nozzle in that. Not a smart idea. After the second spray I put the nozzle back in the cup while I pressed. It was top heavy. It tipped over. Water went all over my wall and carpet. I rushed to get a towel and wipe it up, not realizing that I had left the iron metal side down on my fabric. Oh, stupid me... I am really having problems today...somebody help me! P.S. I have never done this in the 10 years that I have been quilting. Geez...

Ohh Ambs! What a string of bad luck! Your quilt looks amazing, I love it. The colors and fabrics are really cute! The Tai pan place sounds wonderful! I would be there all the time, dangerous. I hope your able to get back soon for another glass dome and the ironing gets better. I sure could use you here right now, I'm a horrible slip stitcher and I have alot to do on this darn elephant I'm working on...Ugh!

I'd suggest you put away the iron for the day and start fresh tomorrow! It has got to be a better day :)

I agree...I think you need to take a little break. The last 2 days have just been too much! Doesn't that always happen though...it seems like when one thing goes wrong everything does. Better luck today!! :)

I have done that! It means that we have had one too many long days. I hope that bunco went well.
