    Really love your hand quilting, especially the paw print. Nice colors, too. When I saw the mistake {forgive me} I had to laugh. Boy, are we all the same when it comes to messing up! Loved it!!
    Have discovered paper piecing!
    OH YEAH

    I look at my quilt pieces through the opposite end of binoculars which helps to bring out the "mistakes", misplaced pieces and thing I don't seem to see just by looking at it. I also try to walk away from it for a short while to clear my mind and look at it again to see if I see mistakes. Hmmm. You've got kissing bears!!
