    Opps!

    What do you do when you are already quilting a wallhanging and you notice that a tip of the top of your leaf didn't get sewn into the seam allowance? It was too late to go back and fix the boo boo without making a mess so .......I added a tiny needle tatted butterfly.

    Great job on the wall hanging. That was a great idea with the butterfly. Tatting is a lost art. You are fortunate you learned that one!

    Good thinking. Looks like it belongs there. Love the wallhanging.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    Looks intentional to me, especially the way you quilted it. It's beautiful!

    On a small pillow, I had 4 blocks and tried unsuccessfully 3 times to make them match up in the center. Stopped before I wore the fabric out and slapped a appliqued rose on top. Everybody loved the flower in the center!

    Such a perfect addition. I think a few more would liven the wall hanging up and add a very nice touch. You are so creative.

    Beautiful and I like the butterfly too. I am the same way when I find a mistake. Oh well just do something else to fix it.

    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
