Well, my stupid time was yesterday. My one hour of stupidity will now cost me probably a good night if not more of fixing my mistake.
I finally got the "humph" to get going on an old quilting project. Got it all backed and ready to quilt. So, in the last week I was able to get some hand quilting done around the applique on the quilt top.
Oh my, new fall TV programs to watch. I can't just set and watch TV, I have to have something in my hands to work on. So, I figure I will just mark the top of this quilt really quickly and I will have something to work on. It didn't matter that I couldn't find the right marking pencil. No, I would sharpen, and sharpen, and sharpen the old pencil that the lead kept breaking on, and you couldn't get a descent point with if your life depended on it. See where this is going?
So, when you don't have a nice point on your pencil to mark with, you get a bulky kind of mark. But, no problem, it will be fine. I can correct it as I go. Or, I will have a quilt that I will say is on the "Primitive" side. LOL I just kept on quilting, saying, oh, I'll fix that later. Three hours later, I had a mess.
So, what will I be doing tonight? Yup, I will be ripping out all that hand quilting, and then taking out all the markings I made. I went to the store today and got me some new pencils. Hopefully, I learned my lesson and will not end up like this again. Haste makes "waste" of time.............
Until we meet again.......make it a good one!
