Sometimes I don't want to think; I just want to sew. It's so relaxing to watch fabric moving along and the needle doing it's thing. So, I pulled this project; cut the strips and started sewing. Oh, I was having a blast - no thinking - very little planning - Oh what fun!!!! WooHoo
AAARRRGGGHHH It's a very simple strippy pattern and yet I had problems. Why? Well, I got all the strips sewn together and it was time to square it up and move on to the borders. I struggled and struggled trying to get this thing squared up. I did the best I could, added all three borders and called it DONE. I took it in the livingroom and laid it on the floor and my DH looked at it and said "what happened, I've never seen you miss" - FULLNESS, yes FULLNESS toward the bottom of the strippy part of the quilt. I know exactly what I did wrong! AAARRRGGGHHH. It's done and it'll quilt out! So, I'm only showing you the top half cuz I'm a little embarrassed. :-( So much for simple!!!!!
Thought for today: Let go and move on!
Gratitudes: An evening of sewing; more projects to sew; more fabric in the cupboards, the drawers, the closet, etc.
