The good and the major fail ..
What a big week! On Wednesday Kane celebrated his 9th birthday. We had a busy night with Maya performing "Happy Little Vegemite" at school in the evening as part of the Kinder to Grade 2 presentations leaving Kane having his birthday dinner fairly late. He had to wait until Friday night to ride his new bike as the week has been that busy. Kane has a fantastic party with his mates on Thursday. Lots of big ticks there.
And my big fail. I had finished all these blocks for Gillian for Around the Block. I thought that the tricky bit would be cutting a circle 6.25 inches across.
When I had the raw edge blocks all sewn together and trimmed I re-read Gillian's instructions and found that I had sewn too close to the raw edge. I couldn't live with it and with my sulkiest face on I unpicked all the blocks. It's put me behind and my seam allowance on the inside is going to be a bit small now too. Back to the sewing machine I go.
