Ok, what's my problem?? The buttonhole stitch is one of my favorite stitches. I started using it on a new block today. And what do you know, I am stuck. Oh, I can do the stitch no problem, but I am trying to expand my horizons and do more than just seams. I am trying to work lines of stitches across patches. Working on a seam is so easy for me, and I guess it is safe. I wanna walk on the wild side and work my way across a patch. My stitches in this patch want to tippie toe over to that patch. Stitches over there want to dance across these two patches to reach this seam over here. Oh what's a girl to do? My needle says come on let's play and my fingers say no way. I need to learn how to put what I see in my head onto my block. I also need to not use blue thread on blue fabric. My eyes are almost crossed trying to see the stitches I did accomplished. Oh well, tomorrow is another day.
