A week that's pretty high on the shit-o-meter does have unexpected benefits.
The quilt I took on camp is hand quilted and I have one more side to go with the binding. Unless my friend is in labour right now - the chances are that this will finished before the baby even gets here (I think that is a first for me with baby presents - I am always late).
So when things do turn to shit - as they tend to do occasionally, I recommend some hand-sewing.
because we all know that keeping your hands busy means you can't actually kill anyone.
and that has to be a good thing...
