FNSI………

last night I worked on my SAHRR. The next round was a BRAID Border.
I had cut the rectangles in the afternoon so when I went into the cave in the evening was able to start putting the rows together.

It took a lot longer than I thought to get the braids all stitched together. It was nearly 1am when I stopped.
I could not believe that when I spread the quilt top on the floor I had made a MISTAKE again…

What is it with this top I have muffed up in every row…… Notice I did stitch on the missing spool. Had to make a new one. LOL
I am off into the cave now to join the others who are doing FNSI tonight.

  9. O Maria-
    I think it is lovely. All that work cutting little pieces -turning them into bigger pieces . Makes me think of algebra in school?????????

    You know Positively that I have done that " O NO -NOT ANOTHER MISTAKE!" over & over again. They say that practice makes perfect - but I am unforsure what I was trying to perfect - the project or the mistake???? Of course I am a really good ripper now-maybe that was my lesson. ?????
