Do it Right the First Time!

Haven't you heard the old saying "if it's worth doing, it's worth doing right the first time". My Mama used to tell me that all the time. You'd think I would have learned! BUT NO! I had to do some 'frog stitchin' because I tried to do something in a hurry! Now, I ask, how simple could a 4-patch block be??????? I sewed up a whole pasel (not sure if this is a word or not but it sounds good) of these little suckers and when I started pressing them, about 1/2 of them just didn't line up to my likin'! SEW, I sent to rippin'! Now I will get to put them back together again, but not tonight!

This big ole gal is TARD! I did do a little embroidery this evening on a baby quilt for a friend -- just put the baby's name and birthdate on so it wasn't really hard. EXCEPT, my bobbin thread was showing up -- really got me flustered -- I adjusted and adjusted the tension and got it better but it still showed in some spots. That's when I got out the fabric markers and did a "touch up job". Oh well, it looks okay.

This is a busy week for me so I'm not sure how much sewing I'll get done, but I'm gone try to sew every day!!!

I know that word -- passel. It's a "whole bunch".
