Oh, dear. I was humming along all day long cutting out the bazillion pieces of applique for the new baby's first quilt (due early February). I cut out all the pieces for the barn. I hummed along thinking "Oh, this is a good thankful day...I have the whole day to do this without stopping." I sewed the bits and pieces of the barn together, ironed, it looked so nice.....until at 8 p.m. I held it up for that final aaaahhhhh moment. And I saw the mistake. The upside down mistake. The mistake that was inside all those pieces. I looked and looked and looked to see if there was a way in without taking the whole thing apart. And there wasn't. So, while I was thankful ALL DAY LONG for having the time, energy and opportunity to work on this, at 8 p.m. I sat down with the seam ripper and ripped it apart till 9 p.m. So, what in all of this is there to be thankful for? Well.....I'm not afraid of the project anymore. I mean, how bad could anything else be? And after I ripped it out, I laid the pieces on the table IN ORDER so tonight it will take just a half hour to put back together.
