A big Doh!

Oh drat it and a lot of other words too. Ever so chuffed with myself over the weekend. Rachel's quilt was coming on apace. In the middle of sewing some batting together (beating the batting stash) Sandra from Stashbusters rang - all the way from the States - yoh! Went back to the quilt after a long chat about this that and the other and started pinning and basting the quilt. Got halfway through and noticed that something was not quite right. I had to revert to pictures of Sophie's quilt to decide what the problem was. Guess who had forgotten the border! So, unpinned it all, have to add to the backing material and redo the batting. Back to the grindstone.

Ack! That's a snafu. Hope you can redo everything quickly.

Things like this can be so aggravating but in the end the quilt will be the reward. :D

Ouch! Not a good surprise.

So DH was keeping his mom's scissors? Did you tell him you rescued them?
