    Grrr almost all the squares I sewed yesterday I had to rip out today because I sewed them wrong. I knew I should have put it aside but want to get the top done. Now I am back to starting over. Anyone else have days like that?

    If I push myself or am tired.....even the sewing machine acts up. The next day it seems to be fine. I have to stop or it just makes extra work.

    The frog strikes again rip-it rip-it :D

    I choose to call those days 'practice days' when everything I sew is wrong. The next day everything is a breeze! :):)

    Oh, that happens to me ALL the time.
    Hubby laughs at me because I always have my seam ripper in my mouth. I'm a smoker and I'm trying to quit, so it's either a pin (long quilters pin) or the seam ripper that I have.
    Hubby has learned that when he wants to give me a quick kiss, to check and see what is sticking out of my mouth.
    Plus, with the seam ripper, it's a handy place to keep it, since I can lose it pretty easily on my sewing table. :)

    I'm having one of those days and it's going to last a few more... LOL I am ripping out 12 braids for my French Braid quilt, decided I didn't like one color in it....so I am having a long meaningful affair with my stitch ripper now. :)

    Everybody I know has days like that, except this neighbor who always sews everything perfectly the first time.

    When I started sewing I was told that a seam ripper is my best friend - we've spent a lot of quality time together in the past six months.

    Guess I'll just join the crowd!

    Funny you should ask that - my 11 year old son has made two table runners this past two weeks - he says the seam ripper and he are best friends... :) and are fast becoming one.

    Yuppers! The seam ripper is my buddy. We have our intimate time together ALL the time. I just hope hubby doesn't find out how much time I spend with Mr SR. He might get jealous! ;)
