Sewing Dummy.

Not the cute thing that stands in the corner of a sewing room wearing the latest creation. Oh, no. In this case, the sewing dummy is me.
After piecing the top of the new strip club quilt this weekend, all I had to do was to attach the borders. So, I measured and attached border one. Check. Measure and prepare to attach border 2 by inserting a pin into the right end of border 1. Check. Begin sewing border 2 to border 1. Check. Run out of border 2. What?!
Yes, I stitched border 2 to the wrong end of border 1! Twice! Why? Because not only had I cleverly placed a pin in border 1 so I would know where to attach border 2, I had left a pin in the other side of border 1 as well.


So, my friend the seam ripper and I have had lots of time to bond today.
The other thing I realized is that I have made
border 1 with the border 2 fabric and vice versa.
Wonderful.

Now see, I thought you were being all "Johnny Carson" and Carnac the Magnificent by saying the answer to the question, "What are you doing, Honey??"

Oh, my; you must have the patience of a saint! I only sewed two things in my life; the first I had to 'rip out' and decided sewing was not for me...haha. The second thing worked out okay, but I didn't enjoy doing it; so, no more sewing. I do really enjoy seeing your creations, though...just lovely!

I've just downloaded iStripper, so I can have the hottest virtual strippers strip-tease on my desktop.
