Christmas Quilt-a-Long - #2

You know the oLd and WiSe saying... MeAsUre twice..
CuT once... well if only I had!!!  Dohhh.
When I finished embroidering the top I straightened the edges.. HoWeVeR I used the measurements the wrong way round.. that is.. the width became the height and visa versa... hence.. I should have measured twice and then cut!
Oh well... add a frame... that will FiX it!  Searched through the stash and found a PeRfEcT match... phew....


Oh and as you can see I'm not making the quilt... but I'm using this time to get a few Christmas things done and dusted BeFoRe Christmas. I plan to keep collecting the patterns each month and I will make use of them.. I promise!
Just making a coffee... then I'll get back at it!

Way to go - don't stress those 'oops' - just design around them. I do my gifties thru the yr and try to be finished before Thanksgiving - then I can enjoy the family and holidays.

I think sometimes the mistake turns out nicer than the original!
