Thirty-two screwed up half square triangles. I can't believe I did this. Spent the last hour cutting and getting ready to start sewing this new Streak of Lightning pattern. I got everything cut and marked. I was so excited to get started I saw those lines I marked to make half-square triangles...you know the ones...those lines just called to me..."sew here Jacquie." So I did. Sewed right on that line 32 straight times. Just whizzing along like I knew what I was doing. So confident, so excited to see that new "Swell" fabric turn into something fabulous. Then I looked down and remembered...not ON the line...a 1/4 in on both sides of the line. It's not like I've never made a half-square triangle before. Oh DRAT! I'm going to veg out in front of the TV while I rip out the stitching on these blocks....32 times!!!! Tune in tomorrow, maybe I'll have my brain with me!
