    I've been trying to make the one block for the Quilts of Valor that they asked for. I had to cut the parts out several times because of errors, sewed them together backwards and finally just gave up and tossed them.

    I think when I had the hip replacment, they took my brain as well. :cry:

    Oh dang, there are just days like that, just walk away and try again later. Your brain may just be on overload today.

    From one that is now personal best friends with my seam ripper, I know how you feel I think we all have days like that. I agree with everyone else just drop it and go back to it another day or evening, I had one of your days yesterday and have been sewing most of today (so far with no issues)

    oh I hate days like that. *sending huge hugs*

    Maybe you should put it away for right now and work on something else that's fun? (and easier?)

    I've had several surgeries. Is that what happened to my brain? :-)
