Whaaaaat???

Honestly, the older I get the more I think something happens to my brain when I travel for work. I just don't bounce back as quickly after being on the road for a few days and it shows up in funny ways.














Like this, for instance. I managed to appliqué three basket handles in my hotel room and when I got home I thought I'd attach a handle to a block to feel like I had accomplished something. Seriously????! Obviously the brain was still on stun mode! A little time with the ripper got things back to normal but it just left me shaking my head. I'll try again when the fog clears.








In the meantime, I've picked up the short sashing strips for Danuta's Garden and have managed to get five more of them together without similar incidents, so I guess that counts for something. I've got three or four projects that I'd like to be putting my attention to but I'm having a hard time landing on one so maybe I'll bake some cookies. The Official Cookie Tester needs to take something to work for a potluck this week so it might be safer for me to be in the kitchen than at the machine .. :)....M

Too funny! Sometimes we don't see the forest for the trees, ... or the block for the stitches.

Bloopers. That's what I call them and I produce a lot of these babies. Glad to see I am not alone. ;^) Love these baskets.

Hey...it happens! More times than we hear about or we will talk about! haha I'm glad the handles are fixed and behind you because these baskets are stinking CUTE!! This is on my bucket list so it's going to be fun watching you progress through this quilt!!

It happens to all of us. You were just brave enough to admit it! Cookies sound better than sewing today. That's my vote.

Your basket is gorgeous even with its high handle lol
Al least there wasn't too much reverse sewing.
Good luck with the cooking......

Things like that have happened to me. It's disappointing, because I'm so prepared for success. I wanted to let you know that your basket inspired me to try to make one. I'm posting it to my blog this evening and giving you credit. I hope you're okay with my "copying" you....
