    I started to work on my son's quilt but realized I was out of the blue thread I needed. So, I decided to make my grandson's turtle for Christmas. I had it all pinned together and decided it would be easier to sew if I turned it over. Dumb like I turned his head over too. When he was turned his head was upside down. Good thing I am a good ripper.

    We all do stuff like that I think! I'd wager most of us here own at least two seam rippers and never let them get far away!

    I have three. One of them is taped to my sewing machine! lol

    Yep, I sewed two whole rows of a quilt top together once, right side to wrong side. Fun times.

    It is so reassuring to know that I am not the only one making B00-BOOs out there. It really can aggrevate?? the H__l out of you. Maybe you need a beer or some wine. How about a little Wild Turkey? That will make you fell better. Ha ha
