I Flunked FNSI

I hang my head in shame at this confession.

I flunked my first ever Friday Night Sew In.

Handmade by Heidi

Having participated in one virtual sew along, I thought it'd be fun to be part of a virtual quilting bee.  No one's gonna see me so there's no makeup involved and I can sew in my jammies.  It's like a quilt retreat, only you don't have to pack up the sewing room and drive anywhere.  And you can go braless.  Whoever thought the whole concept up, should be given a medal!  Plus, I'd taken the Co-Defendants to the Fall Festival at school; that candy-fueled, toddler scream-filled fun fest that makes all my (and apparently every other parent's) nerves get jiggy with it and my last nerve shout 'Holy schmit, enough already!' so I figured I'd earned an evening with my new boy toy.  My mistake was in settling down to watch Amy and Steve on 'The Dead Files'.  That was all she wrote y'all and next thing I knew, it was morning.

So this is my mea culpa and my most heartfelt apology.  As penance, I've forced myself to dedicate my entire Saturday to sewing the binding on Captain Studly's Albatross quilt.  Forced, I tell you!  And such a hardship it has been.

My hope is that if I promise and swear to do better next time, those nice ladies will let have another shot.  If not, it'll be me and The Dead Files crew again.  Then again, that New York accent is starting to sound a tad appealing.  Hmmm......

Happy quilting, y'all!

  1. Don't feel bad! Although I would like to participate in FNSI, I never have. Why? Well because most are the evening before my guild work day, not a good combination for me. Maybe someday?!
