I've had a heck of a time with a paper-pieced block. If it wasn't one thing, than today has been another. I have a stack of fabric lined up to cut into more manageable sizes. :thumbup: I make my cut and to my dismay I have severed the tops off of some of the pieces that were already sewn. :thumbdown:

I'm grumbling now, but at least I know I have enough fabric to fix the decapitated part. Maybe a break is in order now. No, I will go pet my cat.

You need a break. I'm sure it is fixable.

ugh. i was there last night. tried to paper piece the same thing three times and made three different mistakes - decided it must be time for bed. Have been gardening, paying bills and doing groceries / laundry all day and now am clean and ready to try again!

Night (not early evening) is never a good time for me to do anything that needs careful attention. I have a plaque that says "When all else fails, pet the cat." Is that what you were doing?
