After shedding a few tears and uttering many curse words, I think I can tell you how dreadfully my evening of sewing has gone.
I was super excited to finish up the backing for my Supernova quilt tonight. I am putting together some plus-style patchwork, and it's looking really awesome...or I thought it was, until I tried to finish putting it together. Only to find...
I screwed it up!
I should have labeled every single row here, but I felt like I kept them organized enough to avoid any headaches with the layout. Things seemed to be matching up, the rows came together super fast...I should have known something was too good to be true. Obviously, these fabrics should match up when they're right side up...not with one row right side up and the other wrong side up. :(
So, now, it's time to get up close and personal, again, with my seam ripper. I think I'm done cursing. At least for now. Between a seriously cranky, testy 3-year-old and these foibles tonight, I think it might just be time to call it a night. Argh.
