Picking & Grinning

So maybe I'm not grinning as much as I should be! I keep asking When will I learn???? Last night I decided that I would put another quilt on the frame and get it going. Great idea in theory. I should have saved the stitching for today instead of starting it last night. I'm cruising along, thinking the top looks BEAUTIFUL. Boy, do I really need to remember to look at the back of the quilt. Eyelashes and Train tracks, EVERYWHERE. UGH. I got up this morning and started "unsewing". The good thing, my stitching is becoming more more consistent. The bad thing, consistency means the stitches are a bit smaller than they used to be.

Live and learn!

Happy Monday!

Oh I sympthise - that is soooo annoying! I have taught myself that however much I want to finish something or use up the whole evening the moment I start to make a mistake from fatigue I stop. Otherwise more follow. (Lots more in my case!)

I hate when that happens. Hopefully it will not take you too long to pull out the stitches. Keep grinning!
