    I feel your pain, Karla. And it always happens when we think everything is going so well.
    Not to change the subject, but ... is it just me or ... do you all "get your wrists slapped" every time you think how wonderful and smoothly things are going and/or how very clever you are? It happens to me every time I get too smug. I'm like the watchdog on a long chain who gets to running very fast and suddenly runs out of chain and gets flung in the mud on its butt. There's a lesson to be learned there somewhere.

    Oh Karla! I feel your angst! LOL I finished a laptop this week for my SIL 50th birthday. It is the FIRST quilt that I didn't have to undo some quilting because of that!

    I think this is where the saying "pride goeth before the fall" comes from!

    Need to pay attention the same way for embroiydery machine also!!! I caught the collar of a shirt I was doing for my grandson, and had to cut it apart and remove embroidery foot from machine just to get it unsewn.
