    I'm sorry but that is funny ;-) Seriously, when the cussin starts the sewing stops. I do hope you are able to get your happy face on and sew something beautiful :-) I have done something similiar had to pick out the same mistake 3 times in a row, just kept sewing piece on upside down.

    I hope you know I'm laughing with you, not at you. At least I hope you were able to laugh. this sounds like something I would do.

    I think it's time for bed...

    Since cavemen starting sewing pelts together we've been sewing "right sides together". Yesterday I was chain piecing small cornerstones to sashing strips--yep, you guessed it. All twelve were sewn right side to wrong side. I took a cookie break, cussed, unsewed them, and then did them correctly. And, I wasn't tired or rushed or pressured--just a senior blonde moment.
    I pray for peace today and hope I don't have to tomorrow.

    When I was accused of living in a fantasy world I almost fell off my unicorn.

    This is exactly when I quit for the day.

    When I am ready to throw the machine thru a window it's time for a break..I have lots of time to quilt since being on disability, so there is no reason to spend time on it while frustrated! What fun could that be??

    I seem to be able to piece fairly late..but my DH says I cannot quilt on the frame after about 8:30. Seems I thrash around in the bed all night. Think I'm quilting in my sleep? lolol I KNOW I dream about it...

    Same here. Because I don't see well, I seldom sew at night.
