    I started to work on my son's quilt but realized I was out of the blue thread I needed. So, I decided to make my grandson's turtle for Christmas. I had it all pinned together and decided it would be easier to sew if I turned it over. Dumb like I turned his head over too. When he was turned his head was upside down. Good thing I am a good ripper.

    We all do stuff like that I think! I'd wager most of us here own at least two seam rippers and never let them get far away!

    I have three. One of them is taped to my sewing machine! lol

    Yep, I sewed two whole rows of a quilt top together once, right side to wrong side. Fun times.

    It is so reassuring to know that I am not the only one making B00-BOOs out there. It really can aggrevate?? the H__l out of you. Maybe you need a beer or some wine. How about a little Wild Turkey? That will make you fell better. Ha ha

    Glad your back Donna, you had a lot of people here worried about you. Isn't it good to be back making the same mistakes we all do, and will continue to do.

    taping the seam ripper to the sewing table is a good idea. I also noticed that one of my block of sails is upside down. Glad I caught it before I had it pieced together in the whole quilt.
