Default A helpful hint.

[QUOTE=LindaM49;4733016]Well...your problem is a lot worse than mine not being able to find my new package of rotary blades.]
This seems like a good place to share a tip for your pack of rotary blades... I finally wised up and purchased a clear, multi-pocket shoe bag. Its the kind that holds about 12 pairs of shoes and hangs on a wall or on a clothing bar. I put it on the back of the door in my sewing room and filled each clear pocket with different little items I was continually losing. One pocket holds rotary blades, one packs of needles, one buttons on cards, one painting tape and fusible web tape, ric rack,etc. As soon as I get home from the store those little items go directly to a shoe pocket. Not only does it save frustration, it saves me money cause I don't have to go purchase the lost item again only to find it the next day! LOL

I agree with the others who say not to do all that ripping out... Use something else or change the style of the border.

Default Oops!

Oh man!!! I've done a similar, but less work-intensive, boo-boo. I was staying with my daughter when I did it and watching me rip and re-do made her NOT want to learn to quilt...lol..

Oh, how I hate ripping things apart, I feel for you. It seems lately 66% is sewing, 34% ripping. I have to get focused. I know it won't help, but maybe just do 25% each day until all is apart, and all that ironing -- God Bless

Sorry to hear you've had problems. It's such a hassle to have to rip out stitches.
Yes, I would do the same
