So Close

I am 'this close' to finishing the quilt for Son#2 and his bride. I could've finished it today except ... yesterday afternoon I ran out of quilting cotton. You can see in this photo (lower edge) the small area that remains to be quilted:

I can't use just any cotton. It has to be the same colour and type. Realising that I was running out I made a quick dash into town Saturday afternoon but the shop was closed. Notice I said 'shop' and not 'shops'. That's because there is only one shop in our town that stocks the cotton I need. And it was closed.

Today I got DH to drive past the shop when we went into town to get groceries. It was still closed! I know it's a holiday - the last four days have been statutory holidays which would normally be reason to celebrate in our household but not when I've run out of quilting cotton! - but couldn't they have opened just for say half an hour so that I could purchase what I needed!

Okay. I'm only thinking of myself here. But I really wanted to get that quilting done.

Now I'll have to do something else ... something exciting ... like housework.
