You might remember how I showed strips of fabric that I was trying to make into a patchwork purse for my sister. My little girl had cut it. Oh yeah. Though frustrated, I was very thankful that the damage was minimal and would be easy to fix. See here.
Well, last night after the children were to bed, and Derek was doing his schoolwork, I went up to work on the purse.
What I found shocked me.
Now, before you think that M had returned to the spare room and found the scissors again, let me assure you that I am certain THIS horrible mess happened at the same time as the last one.
This time, I am thankful that it was not a finished or semi-finished purse or my stack of new fabric that was also on the bed. Last night I spent a couple hours taking apart the patchwork squares. Notice that eight of them had to be removed. Soon (maybe) I will replace them. And I hope this is the last post about the purse until it is completed!
Now I am thankful that I have fully lost the motivation to work on this. Amy's birthday is in October. Let's hope it's done in time! (In addition to the lesson of keeping scissors away from my fabric, I also learned that I do not like patchwork. I am not skilled enough to make the lines match well.)
(And if you don't believe me that it was 8 blocks, please just trust me!)
