Having said that, I did get a teeny bit of the in-the-ditch quilting done on the Memory Quilt.
My OOPS! is this block, the June Stash Trad bee block:
Cute, right? TOO BAD IT'S THE WRONG SIZE!
Like a dummy, I started sewing without reviewing the block tutorial that Tiffany kindly provided. I just went ahead and made an ASS out of ME when I ASSuMEd I knew what I was doing, only consulting a photo of a finished block for guidance. There I was, merrily piecing the block using my 2" Thangles, all tra la la fiddle dee dee, feeling smug for getting finished before month-end. I even had it in the ziplock all ready to go in the envelope!!
Off I went to the discussion thread in the Flickr Group to get Tiffany's address and what caught my eye? "This block sews up at 15½." My heart sank: I had, in fact, made it in the wrong size. (Those individual squares should finish at 3" not 2".) Worse: I didn't have enough of the Kona PFD that Tiffany had kindly supplied me with to redo the block in the correct size. A friend has come to my rescue (no local suppliers of PFD here plus there's been a slight colour change by the manufacturer to boot) and I will make a replacement block right away. Ugh.
Everything else is sitting with the exception of my Christmas in July project. I have added that to the list and moved it up in ranking since I need to have tutorial up on the 26th and I just put two and two together and realized that I scheduled a 10-day trip out of town right beforehand. I think I need a personal assistant. I've made good progress so it's not a Panicstations situation or anything. Here's a sneak peek:
I'm really excited to share this with you!
