    I have done this and so much more. I have to leave the project and get back to it later.

    I agree! Last night I was putting the borders on the front of a Dogs in Sweaters pillow top and did it wrong. Good grief! Its a straight seam! I ripped the seam out, then thought "If I do it again now, I'll probably do it wrong so I'm going to go watch tv and finish this later"

    I have done all of the above. Instead of stopping I get determined to keep going until I get it right.
