Yup. This one's particularly humiliating. Does wonders for your confidence level.

Read the instructions several times to make sure I knew how to assemble the block, then still did it wrong.

Because some of the other people that live with me think I should be in bed at 2 am instead of sewing.

What do other people know? Why would you listen to them?

My problem isn't too late at night...It's way too early in the morning. I'm usually awake by 2 or 3 am and down in the sewing room.

I guess the phrase "haste makes waste" holds true for quilting also.

I was happily chain-piecing late at night, after everyone (hubby and 2 grown sons) were in bed. Felt a creepy crawly slither down my leg. Screamed bloody murder and brought every single man in the house on a dead run. Turned out the creepy crawly was just the far end of my chain piecing..... 😲 I'm not allowed to chain-piece late at night anymore.... 🤣
