I had great plans for tonight. I figured I'd have Joseph's top together by about 8:00 or so, and then could work on mile-a-minute blocks from then on. That's what I packed for too. Well, I knew that Joseph's quilt had been a mistake-fraught quilt from the beginning, but I figured I was past that. After all, all I was doing was sewing it together. Hah! At least four more mistakes tonight - incorrect measuring, unexpected cut through part of a border, sewing pieces together wrong at least twice if not more. The good news is that I did find the perfect outside border in my stash, and the top is now done. Nothing was accomplished on the mile-a-minute blocks as I didn't finish the baby top until after 10:30. By then most everyone was packing up. At least I got exercise toting the rest of the stuff back and forth from the sewing room to the car - three times!
Tomorrow Cher and I are having another scrap cutting session. I'm going to try very hard not to slice into my finger again. I think I'll start by letting her cut while I wind floss on bobbins. That sounds like a fairly safe activity, don't you think?
