Entertainment and seam ripping

Did you ever have one of these days?  I made several like the photo on the left.  I had to laugh (I’m easily entertained) but after the more attached mistake, I decided I needed a break from sewing.  At least I saw that big error before it was quilted!

I retired in 2004 and have never missed the 8-5 grind even for a minute. Now I spend my time reading, traveling, quilting and trying to learn new things like Spanish and blogging.

  1. Hum…it does make a great frame for your (still-smiling) face! And yes, I’ve had lots and lots and lots of similar experiences. Recently. A couple hours ago. It’s nice to have the company of such an accomplished quilter!

    I certainly have those days! And I usually need to stop and take a break too. Read a book, go for a walk. Stay out of the sewing room until I get the mojo back. 🙂

    I am convinced that this is how new patterns evolved.

    I usually don’t find my mistakes until the top is put together and sometimes quilted. Your lucky you found it early. Looks amazing!

  6. It happens. I have recut a backing three times today because, apparently, I either can’t measure or can’t count. So, I am taking a blog break!

    I agree with Lani! 🙂

  8. Love the last picture. Have I ever had days like that? You betcha. They always seem to happen just as I’m thinking what a good and master quilter I am!!!!!

    Your post made me chuckle! It happens so often to me I consider ripping out to be part of the process of piecing. I’ve gotten quite good at it (the ripping out part) and have good defensive strategies for mistakes…including “I meant to do that”

    I took a class where the tutor said every mistake is an opportunity for embellishment, which I have always found comforting.
