What's Wrong With This Picture?!?

Sigh. . . .

I know I am not the only person who makes mistakes. I have learned to be glad when I make a mistake that I can recover from.

Yesterday was one of those days when I was busy, busy, busy, piecing as quickly as I could. When I went to press my 68 flying geese, this is what I found. Who sewed these anyway?!? Yes, it was me. Actually I sewed them right. I just cut off the wrong side.

So instead of being finished with 17 blocks, I have finished 5 after unpicking and turning and carefully lining up my corner. What a pain. Sigh. . . . At least the mistake was fixable, right. I keep telling myself that.

I hate to tell you this, but I NEVER makes mistakes like that...okay, that's not true. But you're so much better than me. I would've totally scratched that idea, threw them in the trash, and started all over again. Yes, I tend to be a little wasteful at times. ;o)
BTW- yesterday when I got home from our meeting my EQ6 was waiting on my doorstep! can't wait to start playing! ;o)

You will LOVE EQ6! It is practically my right arm in playing with pattern designs.
