Why write notes if you don’t review them …

I thought I would try and save some time by reposting the previous pic of my inner Sister’s block .. well i looked at it and it was the one that was all wonky .. Heh .. to bad I didn’t look at it before I started to sew this one up. **Future Note to Self: Go back over your previous notes you twit!! (@@) Might have saved some frogging. Nothing to major though.

Lately my cutting seems to be off a bit, not sure why – the ruler’s not moving – I might not have the fold lined up properly. So I’ve ‘adjusted’, I’ve gotten in the habit of making my seam a smidge – no not scant – smidge less than &#0188″ just to leave myself some wiggle room – well I’m also doing that when I cut .. just a few threads past the lines .. well combine the smidge with a few threads on a block that has a lot of pieces, and you are looking at &#0188 – &#0189″ of extra fabric sticking out the edges when you make a block that has this many pieces. With less pieces, it’s not that much.

If I had looked at the block before i started to sew, I would have went – ahhhhh .. and not made the same mistake twice .. see what happens when you don’t come back to something for a bit?? Creates all sorts of mischief with yourself LOL

At any rate, I fixed it as I went along, and while I’m going to lose the points on this block, I’ll know what NOT to do for the other 3 inner Sisters and the 16 outer Sisters.

Well, it’s after 4am (again) I’m off .. let’s hope I can sleep .. was up til round 9am yesterday, then slept to 2pm I think .. I dragged all day with sleeping like that :\

You know .. I’m wondering why all the pics I take of my blocks look ‘off’ .. I KNOW they they are squared, but you sure wouldn’t think so looking at this picture …

One thought on “Why write notes if you don’t review them …

  1. Some times the “offness: in the picture has to do with camera angles and the way that lenses are.

    I tried making a box to support the camera so that the lens is exactly the same distance from the block about 15 inches away. might work
