Completely Undone

That's today - completely undone, at least my latest project is.

This is 

now this

and this.

I really don't like tearing things out.  That's why I try really hard to do it right the first time.  I'm sure I'm not the only person that's ever had to take a quilt apart and start over.  At least I'm pretty sure not everyone has disposable resources to just chuck and begin again.  I also didn't leave myself any room for error on this project.  So . . .

Back to the drawing board :)  I had a deadline.  End of September.  That's come and gone.  Now I would just like this project done.  I want to be happy with it again. So I'm heading back to square one - literally - and starting over.  

All of the blocks are stitched.  Now all I have to do is decide how to finish it and be happy with it. That will happen.  I have confidence in my abilities.  I just need to slow down and not worry so much about deadlines.  And . . .

"Git 'er done !!!! "   :)

Thanks for stopping by.

Wishing you a creative day.

Ooops, too late for washing! But my next solution is to use cornerstones. It makes it a lot easier to match things up when you have seams in those corner spots. =) You only need four! Love your Halloween finger-tip towels.

Hi Edi, thanks for coming by my blog and leaving a comment... for some reason it has come through as a no reply ... just as well i can come along and visit you!

Reverse sewing is not much fun... but it is worth it to get a good result... I love your towels....I wonder if anyone will wipe their handson the spiders????

Thanks, DSQ. I'm going to try those corner stones. Should have thought of it myself.

I don't know why it comes as no reply. This is all new to me - lots to figure out.

Reverse sewing - that's sounds so much better than tearing out, doesn't it? I really appreciate the encouragement.

I love your blog. I'm having a great time looking at all your lovelies.

Towels - their white !! I live with the male species !! They know better than to touch them with their grubby paws :) At least so far :) They are fun, aren't they? I'm a bit of a smarty pants - please don't take offense to my comments. We Americans tend to be a little sarcastic :) Love and hugs.
