I knew I shouldn't have, but I did. I started machine quilting a quilt with cream coloured thread. Now, you have to understand, it was fine on the lighter side of the dark/light HST's. But, the problem was, my dark colour was a mottled, rusty red.
After the first row, of poseys and leaves, I didn't think it was looking very good.
So, I quilted another row. Duh. Dumb move.
So now I knew I didn't like it.
And spent the next 4 hours picking it out.
I've restitched the two rows, and a third one now with a dark beige verigated thread and it is sooooo much better.
Next time, I'll listen to my inside voice, when it says "don't do that!"
