    Step away from

    Last night I finally found the red bandana type fabric that I needed for wine bottle bags & wine bottles I promised to donate to a fund raiser dinner this weekend. So I quickly grabbed a bottle of wine to measure the fabric. I cut all 12 pieces and started sewing the first one. There was no way to put the bottle into the bag that I sewed. DUH! I mis-cut to narrow all 12 and I don't have enough material left to make them. OK, the theme is western so all the bottles will be wearing little wine sized red bandanas. I quickly exited my sewing room before screwing up anything else.

    So today I decided I would finally start a sheep wall hanging for my self. Cut the first piece of the background...you guessed it...cut it too small.

    So I stepped away from the rotary cutter and promised myself that tomorrow is another day. Maybe I should have opened that bottle of wine first.

    I would have added another fabric to enlarge the bags, and kept on sewing, but an early coctail works too.!!!

    Act like the bandanas were planned! They will be so cute no one will have to know.
    Wine is usually my solution to days like that.

    Been there done that! Even when I tell myself measure twice .... I still have those days. Where you are so brilliant is knowing when to step away!
