Quality Time

I got to spend some quality time with my seam ripper last night.

 Seam Ripping

I had a plan for these 2.5" strips of Poems from Pebbles, but once I got started on it, I didn't like it. 

Friday night, I sewed 26 strips into sets of twos. I put them up on the design wall to be sure that I didn't mess up the sewing order when I decided that I needed to make changes. But, no matter how much I moved them around, it just wasn't working. 

I set them aside thinking that a new day would help; but when I went back to them last night, I still felt the same way. I pulled out my seam ripper and got busy.

I spent some serious, but quality time with the ripper and I'm okay with that. I sure am glad I made the decision to rip early in the construction process!

I hope to get time to work on the new plan later today but I have a few other things on my plate first though. 

I'm excited to say that next Sunday I will be the guest blogger at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. I'm super excited about it and hope you all jump over there and take a gander at the tutorial I'm posting that day. 

I'm also one of the sponsors for the 2015 Hands2Help Quilt Challenge and Sarah's post yesterday announces all the wonderful sponsors. I'm thrilled to be a part of the challenge and honored to be a guest blogger and sponsor.

Happy Monday!

I have a love/hate thing going with my seam ripper. Love it once seams are 'ripped' and now where they should be, however hate having to take the time to do's also kind of humbling. Oh well, shoulders back, chin up and carry on!!

I, too, have to frequently spend time with my little friend Jack (the Ripper)! We've all been there! Happy to see you're getting ready to be a guest blogger!!

Sometimes things just go that way, but when we are not happy it's best to start over. Look forward to your tutorial.
