Ever just get so frustrated with a craft tht isn't turning out how you want? Happened to me today! I finished wrapping my St Patty's day rainbow wreath and I just didn't like how it was looking! I didn't like the final yarn I thought would be good. I got so fed up with tryin to make it work I set the wreath aside and am trying the idea on a different form with different yarn! I'll go back to the original and unwrap the still useable yarn later.... Ugh!

YES!!! I'm editing an image in a new-to-me program and apparently my computer can't handle it and freezes just about every five minutes!!!! Twice the thing shut down and I lost all my changes!!
I gave up for the night and grabbed a Hershey Bar and a beer, its the weekend and I should be relaxing, not stressing!!!

Yes...everytime I try to crochet baby shoes/booties whatever.  I just can't do it, I need to stop trying lol.

I have a few started at the bottom of my crochet bag that I always say I will unwrap or try to fix or try again, but then I look at it and don't even want to waste my time!

That was called "Saturday"

A bracelet that should have taken me less than an hour became an all day event ,including gouging my finger with wire (oh yippee)

Yeah-some days just are not meant to be craft days.

YES!!  I've been trying for months to master the Boutique Hairbow and it seems like only 1 out of every 100 actually come out perfect.

When i get that way i do two things, grab a drink n leave the project, okay dont always grab a drink but do leave the project and sleep on it. The next morning i usually figure a way to resolve it.

 toddler tantrum          Atleast you just "set it aside"  I have been known to give the offending project a fling!
