I've been working on UFO's.  Last Saturday I got back 4 small charity quilts from Carrie who quilted them for me.  In the last 2 days I made binding and finished them.  Time to pass them on to the church.

Phooey!  I can't post the pictures.  I'll try again later.

I have two of her books, really like them both, though I can't put my finger on exactly why.

Because you find patterns you like and actually use them???

Some sloppy careless wicked evil mischief-making gremlin is making mistakes in my "Beads" quilt top!  rage(There's an error in the top right corner and an error in the lower left corner. Thank goodness I have found them at this early stage.)

I organized the backing fabric and the top to take this photo to send to my DD and the errors just jumped out at me. Sigh.

Frustrating to find mistakes but better now than later. Taking a photo really brings them to light.

At least it is on the end so an easy fix instead of being smack dab in the middle.  Looking good!

Ami and Lynne, mistakes have been corrected.  Did the worst one first and so the easiest one was a breeze.

Now I don't have to think about them while I am tossing and turning in bed tonight.

aarrgggg!   how annoying!


BUT, it's amazing how helpful cameras are for finding those sorts of problems.  You can stare at your project on the design wall until you're cross-eyed and never see anything out of place.  Take a photo?  Bingo!  It pops right out at you.

As you said, luckily, you found the problems so early!
