What's a Girl to Do
When the circuit breaker blows half way through your vacuuming and the breaker won't reset? When you finally get a clear sunny day so you can admire the dandelion patches growing all round the house? A smart girl would call an electrician. A really smart girl would go outside, bask in the sun and pull weeds.
What did I do?
I put the half square triangle border on the medallion quilt twice - wrong. FYI, 26/2 equals 13, not 12. Yes, I got A's in college calculus but I obviously can't do remedial math.
But I did get 12 on two sides. Huh? When I tried to put the third side on there was no way it was going to fit and green blocks on each side were facing different directions.
So I took it apart, took the strip apart, and started over. How does a person get 13 blocks on one side, 14 on another and FIFTEEN on a third? AND THE GREEN TRIANGLES ARE STILL GOING THE WRONG WAY ON ONE SIDE!!
And contrary to popular belief there was no wine involved.
I guess it is true, the third times the charm.
Good thing I'm really liking how this quilt is turning out or it would probably be in the trash.
