Call me a perfectionist or a fool ( I think both shoes would fit!)
You know the "Journey of a Quilter Home" top posted the other day ...well, the top is still hanging on my design wall and everytime I looked at it, it bugged me...the borders didn't lay flat ! I don't know why ?? I measured them 10 times before I cut them...I sewed them with an exact 1/4 ( exact for me) I ironed them carefully ( I think this is where the problem came but I am not sure?) and they seem to hang wobbly.
As a perfectionist ( actually another word could be "not-finisher") I had to fix the wobbly borders. Yes, I opened all the seams...re-measured them, re-cut them, re-sewed them. Now it lays flat! Now I can sleep knowing my top is perfect ( almost...I discovered I forgot to embroider a section....I think this quilt never wants to get done...or maybe I don't want it done...then my Journey would be over and I have enjoyed it so much it can't come to an end.
Doesn't the top look much better?
I am going to leave you with something perfect....look at this flower! Don't ask me the name ...I can't spell it.
I have had this plant for 3 years and it has never bloomed...till now!
I will take this as a good sign! Maybe I will actually finish something this year ?? (wishful thinking)
