The Ripper is My Friend

Yesterday I found a big mistake in my quilt, all afternoon the seam ripper was my only hope. Before I ripped I had to think about how in the world could I fix this . So I went to my other mess. Next picture I have it all under control and now I can sit and knit or embroidery and crochet at night or when the mood hits me.


getting it sorted



The only way I could think of to fix the quilt was rip out all 30 blocks. Poor me , but I will not give up . Just marked it up as learning experience.

Can you imagine what it was like before the invention of seam rippers?!? Good luck!

Having to undo something whether it be knitting or sewing is just the worst for me.

I love those shades of blue. It will be worth it in the end I'm sure.

Thank goodness for the ripper as in seam ripper. Looks like you have your craft work at your finger tips. We went to a meeting on recyling today. We have been recyling our newspaper, now will try to recyle other things. It sure is cold.

Oh, dear, well at least you have a good attitude about it, and we always learn from our mistakes, don't we?

Tonight is a good night for knitting or crocheting. Stay warm!
