i've quilted before. i've pieced a quilt before (see the lovely little number above). i've had my fair share of figuring out many a different patterns. and quite successfully i might add.
but today, today is not a successful day. just now, i spent the better part of an hour marking a quilt top. it's a simple little thing. cute. easy. but for some reason, i'm just not using my quilting brain today. i marked the two ends of the quilt completely wrong. and i'm frustrated. frustrated that i didn't figure it out until i was almost finish marking it. frustrated that now there are pencil marks all over my quilt top that are completely incorrect. frustrated that i didn't take one simple step (comparing the two edges before marking lines across the entire top, which didn't quite line up, but i thought it was just because the fabric was slightly stretched and that I had missed a marking here or there) to avoid all of this. okay, so now that i've vented...i guess i'll figure out how to fix my brainlessness.
that's all. just wanted the rest of you to know that you're not alone in your fumbles. (at least i hope someone else out there fumbles...at least that's what i'm telling myself right now.)
