I'd finished sewing all 8 sections of the star that I've been working on--see this post.
This block printed 2 sections per page. 1 section didn't fully print the top seam allowance. I had drawn the cutting line on 3 sections but not the 4th. Guess who should have done that! I had trimmed 4 sections before I did this.....oh boy!
So now I will tape my paper back together, tape the seam lines, unsew several of those pieces, cut new pieces and resew this section. After I cry..........
Speaking of tape---you know Carol Doak recommends the Soctch Removable Magic Tape to tape your papers with. For some reason it is kind of hard to find around here and I was getting low. So yesterday I ordered some from Staples. I also ordered a super cute pink high heel to hold the tape, I needed some ink pens and a few other things and if you order more than $45, you get free shipping. So I did. Thank goodness I did that. Who knows how much tape I'm going to use to tape up this whoopsie!
Oh and Staples---you rock. I ordered yesterday morning and this morning, the UPS man handed me my complete order. WOW.
I'm done crying now. Guess I'll have some lunch and get back to it. I'd like to have the block finished today.
