I am a reasonable sewer.
I have been doing it most of my adult life.
I did piece work for many years and that is a tough way to make a living, you have to be super quick or you starve.
I have been doing patchwork for a long time and made many, many flying geese, half square triangles, churn dash and on and on.
So why for the life of me do I keep messing this really simple star up?
I had to make six, only six and I think I unpicked and resewed them about 15 times (no joke) and last night I had them finished, today went to iron them and one was not right - really..
Now flannel does not liked to be unpicked and really doesn't like to be unpicked a number of times.
So eventually they were finished, a little worse for wear and took way longer than they should have and then I layed them out and wasn't happy with them so I'm not going to use them!!!
Sometimes I think I will give up quilting and take up macramé..
Well finally it is together..
A really simple pattern that should have taken way less to put together than it did.
Tomorrow I hope to pin and start the quilting.
Wish me luck..
