Note to Self....



"isn't is nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?"
Anne of Green Gables


Posting before coffee is such a mistake...hence my second post of the day.

What is worse? I made the same mistake three years ago! I am referring to the block in my earlier post. The first time I made it I turned a 10-1/2 inch block into a 9 inch thinking it made the math easier. It did make it easier but it also made it wrong! (there is another quote in there about simple solutions but I can't come up with it right now....)Anyway, I had even left myself a note. "This is an un-even patch. The center 4-patch finishes at the 4 inches and the corners at 3 inches." Of course in my midnight stitching frenzy did I look at the note...nooooo, I made three blocks just the one that I had the note pinned to reminding me that that block was a mistake!

Please tell me I am not the only one to ever do anything like this!

??? not sure what is wrong. Is this now a 10 inch finished? Or am I totally clueless???

Yes, this happens to us all, and more than once. I leave myself notes, but often I can't decipher them.

All I can say is if I had a nickel for every time I've changed a block . . . you and I along with 3 quiltin' pals could fly to Hawaii and drink something cool and fruity on the beach.

You're not alone that's all I can say.
