Stupid Is as Stupid Does....Part Deux
I was hoping there wouldn't be a part deux of this post, but sometimes these things happen. Need a laugh to start your Friday? Read on.
I was quilting today. I finally decided how I wanted to quilt this piece. Brilliant idea I told myself. So I threaded the machine, and off I went quilting merrily....quilting, quilting quilting. All the time saying how fab it was looking. I wanted to show someone. So I took it out of the machine, pinned it to the design wall...no one around but me, so I showed myself. I admired my work and patted myself on the back. I'm sooo good.
I took the piece back to the machine, more quilting...I was smiling inside. You know that feeling when all wheels are clicking and you know you're making something great. I finished the quilting and as I pulled it out from under the presser foot, I noticed something. Something wasn't right.
Lesson One: How to Make a Quilt Sandwich....hmmm I must have missed this lesson.
This is my quilt sandwich: top, back and then the batting. Mixed that up a bit, wouldn't you say? Stupid is as stupid does.
Have a great weekend. I started mine with a good laugh at myself.
