we don't have to get a quilting license, because the powers that be would take mine away! I'm full of "oops" moments lately.
Today, I finished the applique on the top part of my little wall hanging -
And started on the wording. Of course, I forgot to reverse my template - already fixed in the pattern, but I used an earlier print-out. I must do that at least once per pattern.
Look at that, plain as day, of course those letters aren't reversed. I need to hang a sign in here somewhere that says "Applique - Please Reverse Template". In great big screaming red letters.
And then, while I was cutting a piece of fabric to get a 2-inch square, with scissors mind you, not a rotary cutter - my finger got in the way. I could not get it to stop bleeding, I had to use a band-aid as a tourniquet.
I haven't cut myself with scissors since I was a toddler. Maybe I've reached the age where I'm regressing. Naturally, when I first felt those scissors cutting my flesh, I didn't open them...oh no....I closed them harder. See what I mean about getting my quilt license revoked? I don't even drink. I don't need to!
I'll try again tomorrow....I think a nice hot cup of coffee and a movie are in order.
ps - the pattern will be a freebie soon as it's done, provided I survive the process!
