    Not really, but I have been busy un-picking about a billion tiny threads today. Didn't like the way my quilting was going - now time to re-group and try again..that is when my eyes and back recover. hahaha. Ah....the life of a quilter.

    Been there, done that and did it. Not a fun way to spend the day.

    The lady that taught me to knit said "if you can't take the stitches out and make it correct, then don't knit". I remember that advice given me 52 years ago every time I unsew while working on a quilt. A good lesson to learn.

    It is a real pain, but in the end you'll be glad you did it. :D

    Oh yeah. I spent at least two hours last night doing the same thing. I had a queen sized quilt fully assembled with borders complete when I realized one row was upside down.

    For me, it was more like pickin' and cussin'.

    It's always fine in the end though.
