I could have said stubborn women but I'll blame this on quilting instead....this time.
What is it that makes us (ok, me) think that I can get through one project/block without resewing? Take the latest block that I did for Rhonda's July Block swap. It is going to Maggie who I had last month also. I was right on track with the colors since we had talked about it early in the month and I actually had some fabric that would work. I chose a pattern that I had wanted to learn to make and had her colors and off I went to cut and sew.
First stop light....it was a long one. Had to throw out the first set of fabrics becuase it didn't look good with the pattern. Did I change the pattern? Noooooo, I changed the fabrics. The second set of fabrics I also had in my stash so back on the road.
Second stop light. The second set of fabrics didn't look good with this pattern. Ok...ok. I changed the pattern. There was another pattern similar but different enough that I could work with the fabrics that I had chosen.
Proceed with caution as I come up across a crossroads. Do I proceed with my normal speed when I start these or should I take the long and careful road. Long and careful won out and I set up a sechedule to only do one row of 2.5 squares a night. That way I wouldn't get burned out and hopefully wouldn't get bogged down in mistakes. Things were progessing along nicely and I dared to speed up.
OOPS! Speed trap! Sped up and had to pull over and unstitch a couple of squares. It turned out that when I was looking at how wide to make the blue and brown fabric, I mixed up two different sizes. Got those recut, resewn and then attached.
That was taken with my new phone which is:
Time to gt back to learning about this new phone. What it will take to get some ebooks on it etc. Sigh. This will be a long process. I just know it will.
