Have you ever had a day ( or two) like this?
After greeting everyone and making a nest, my first task was to bind Cathedral Stars. All went well till I realized I had not made enough binding. To be honest, I think that binding really went with something else, but it matched so I grabbed it. I did have the foresight to bring extra fabric JIC. So I made a bit more, got to the end and cut the 45 degree connection in the wrong direction!
What really steams me is I recently bought a new binding tool that would prevent me from making this mistake, but did I pack it? NO
I'd show a picture except that I picked up the phone connector instead of the camera connector so can't download any photos yet ...
Binding on Black and Tan Pineapple went well; however, I didn't attempt the join. That will wait till I can get home to the tool.
Some assembly on Candy Dish was accomplished before it was time to go to bed. That was successfully finished this morning, along with the back. I was on a roll!
Or so I thought .... I was all set to put the borders on Classic 4-Patch, forgot I planned to miter the corners and cut the border too short. As I analyzed how to fix it I realized I didn't have enough fabric to do that. I needed food at that point.
After lunch, halfway into assembling the border rows for Radically Random the tension messed up and I jammed the needle threader off it's track. Thankfully I had the foresight to pack my normal retreat machine -- only because I thought I might need some of the tools I carry with it.
Pack up machine 1, unpack machine 2, unsew and resew the messed up seams ... finally finished after dinner and I'm bushed.
The good news is that the binding is fixable, I'll come up with a border solution when I'm rested, and I'm extremely happy with my two finishes.
I think I'll go to bed .....
