Will I ever learn?
Yesterday saw the inaugural online virtual retreat of the Liberated Quilters Yahoo! Group. I've never seen so much energy and motivation. Great fun - lots of chatter and some great work. Throughout the day, in betweeen chores, I hand quilted the borders on Liquorice Lane and late last night sewed the last stitch. This is where I should have stopped, but did I? Did I h**l! Out came the cutting mat, rotary cutter and long rulers to square up the quilt and cut. Oh My Goodness! STOP! Look! The cutter slipped and I lopped off half of the little house in the bottom left hand corner. Despite attempts to square up, left hand side is now definitely wonky. If I cut any more I'll end up with no border so leave it as it is, put the binding on and call it a day. Note to self. Never ever ignore that inner voice telling you to stop. Right Now!
