Down the Drain Like Molten Toothpaste

Is it possible to die from crafting? Like, the craft is killing you?


I guess I grossly underestimated how much time hand quilting the pillow top would take. I also underestimated how much I'd hate the damn project when I'm about half way down with it.

You know, if I put this much time into something I expect some sort of benefits when I'm done. Like, it should fart one hundred dollar bills. Or take me to Italy and find me countless Italian lovers. Or scrub my damn floors. You know, something extremely important like that.

I'm sure I saw one of those 100 dollar bill farting cushions over at etsy....

What, the satisfaction of having made it isn't enough for you?

But now that you mention it, I could really use a pillow that farts one hundred dollar bills!

Very pretty :D You should charge something outrageous for it! You might feel better & have money for a patent on that farting pillow!

This is why sewing machines were invented.

see but now you can always say...i've hand quilted this pillow top. adn then continue using your machine and flip the damn thing off everytime you walk by it!

It looks great, really. But I totally understand.

cheryl said...

It's beautiful! All you are gonna get is the satisfaction that you finished it, and that it's gorgeous.

I think I'd take the farting hundreds if I had my choice. LOL.

TinkerBlue said...

but it looks amazing!

Chara Michele said...

It looks lovely! (And I am amazed that you are hand quilting, I would never have the patience!!)

yeah, that would be why I haven't attempted any type of quilting just yet.

So am I to assume that my beautiful birthday pillow will NOT be hand quilted? :P
