The high of my recent sewing is definitely my weekender bag. Do you want to know what the low is? I am going to make a full confession of botching up a bee block.
I was devastated when I realised what I had done. I am always very careful with bee blocks made in someone else's fabric. I normally change my rotary blade if it is dull, use a new needle and check and recheck dimensions before I cut. Yesterday, I did all this as I set about cutting into Karen's beautiful fabric that she sent out for her hipBee block.
|Where did that hole appear from?|
|How did that happen?|
It took me ages to figure out what I had done but after a lot of head scratching I realised that I had miscalculated the pieces by 1/2". I am so sorry Karen. This block is really simple and I failed completely. So fellow hipBees do you want to sack me as your bee Mama? I haven't set a very good example. And Karen - please answer my email and put me out of my misery.
I hope you have a better sewing day than I did yesterday. I am now in the middle of making the Bee Blessed blocks but at least if I mess these up I don't have to confess!
