A tear? ... almost!

Having fun with my 365 Ultimate Sampler Challenge?


I was doing the "Flower Basket" (March 7) and needed to cut off a piece from the square to make the triangle of the basket. 

This picture shows where it needed to be cut off. You know what's coming, right?  Right! YES I DID

cut it HERE instead!! WHY? OH! WHY?  Look at the mess.

If I had cut from this side I would have realized that I was NOT on the right side of the sewing line.

It took me the entire evening to do this one because I couldn't go to bed with that disaster in the basement, so I got the seam ripper out. I didn't cry!  I was very, VERY upset! at ME! Got the same fabrics out and started to cut the missing pieces. Only three were salvaged from the block. Then this happened.

Brats!! I know I am tired but I won't turn off the lights until it is done.

I did get it right eventually.

Even made one more (just to have the last word, you know)!   :^)
Here you have from 1 - 8 of March.

I love these two. Not perfect but done.  So "March-ing" on, I will go and I will have fun too! :^D

Having a happy dance with Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict for "Can I Get a Whoop Whoop?"

Until next time ....



  1. Aaahhhh....! Ouch...! OMG ! OMG !!!
    Bon si ça peut te rassurer, ca nous est toutes arrivées ! Et tu t'es très bien rattrapé ..ouf ! :)
    Bravo Chantal !

  2. Oh, no! And then it becomes a serial disaster, too, of course! I'm glad you finally got it to behave.
    I'm still stalled at March 10th, so you're about to get ahead of me. Good luck!

  3. I feel your frustration. I am still on the beginning Feb. blocks...found it too stressful to make them daily. Are you going by her block placement suggestion, or are you putting them where ever?

  4. haha.. its so frustrating cutting on the wrong side of the line... well done for persevering and getting it done!

  5. Ooh that does sound frustrating. Glad you persevered and taught it who's the boss.

It's a very slooooow progress ...

if you want to call it progress. It's more like regress to me. Temecula had a mystery sew-along. I didn't participate until I saw ...
