One of Those Days

Well I got the borders on! Woo hoo! But in the process of doing that I was having one of those days. You know, the kind where most things don't go well.

The first thing was that I cut two sides of the inner borders wrong. I cut them all the same length without thinking. So that would have left the four corners with nothing. Hmmmm, what to do, what to do. I had enough fabric that I could have cut two new strips, but, well, I took the short cut and just cut four squares for the corners. I improvised! Have you done that?

Next, it seemed like the fabric just wouldn't cooperate with me and was always moving the wrong direction from where I wanted it to be. Then as I was cutting some of the border strips, my ruler moved on me. Grrrrrrr! I'm seriously thinking about replacing all my rotary rulers with the type that have grippy-ness to them.

I knocked my garbage can over, I dropped the magnetic pin holder and was then playing on the floor, picking them up. And so on, and so on. But thankfully I came out of the room alive and so did the kitties!
