I Planned, I Failed

Dear Fairlie,

The advice you offered on my last post was sound. I nodded my head in agreement to your wise words. I felt virtuous for planning my quilt in order to avoid failure.


in my smugness, I managed to stitch the pink fabric back to front and failed anyway.

Yours humbly,

  1. It will still look wonderful — unlike my trousers, in which I inadvertently sewed the fronts together to make one leg and the backs to make another.
    (NB: They look sort-of okay but feel weird.)

  2. uggh!! I HATE when that happens,…

  3. That’s surely not the fault of planning though? More like distractability, rushing-through-what looked like the easy bit, talking while you sewed? Did you just leave concentrating on what you’re doing out of your plan, hmm?

  4. Laughing at SG’s comment. Isn’t there a saying about the best laid plans?

  5. I blame Fairlie.

    Anyway, nice to know you are human. 🙂

  6. Believe me, you’e not alone.

  7. You’re. YOU’RE. I give up. I tried to play the piano this morning and anyone would have thought I’d put someone else’s hands on by mistake.

  8. And someone else’s spelling attachment as well D/C.

  9. You are human after all! I thought you were a quilting goddess who made no mistakes!
