The things that make you go grrrrrr

I've been working on and off for three days on my Nine patch swap blocks...finally finished, ironed in between phone calls, kids screaming (playing hide n seek) and I sighed a big relief as I've completed something! Finally!!!!
I always measure to ensure all the blocks are accurate and what do I see a 1/4" difference on one side. The middle strip centre square was cut @ 2 1/4" instead off 2 1/2"......... What's a girl to do???????  Turn off the iron, sewing machine, and the light and casually walk out of the sewing room and make a cuppa. 
Might put on The Big Bang Theory and have a giggle or two while I do some Chrissy stitching....and tonight I will put on a well watched movie and sit and unpick all 16 blocks.....yes I will unpick and recut and sew new centre squares... Don't tick me off yet Trish lol.......cest la vie....

  5. Blast! Don't you hate that, but what else can you do than fix them up. I had a measure twice, cut once lapse with my place mats, but it was less time consuming to fix. Good luck with your second attempt.

  8. Oh dear, you are very patient to unpick 16 of them! I guess it's still quicker than recutting and sewing the whole lot again... hope it went to plan.

  9. Oh wow, feeling your pain. I am living in a world of miscalculation at the moment- lovely to have you stop by, but yes, you can go now, lol. Hope you enjoyed your much seen movie, and are zooming on (smoothly) with your blocks again :)
