It's pitiful really, cut my butterfly wings too small, and this is as far as I got. I made the mistake of cutting at the end of  my busy Monday... never a smart thing to do when you're tired. Discouraged, I just haven't gone back out there to cut them again. Pretty sad, it's just 11 stinken squares.

Found more photoshopping that needed doing, thanks to Susan for reminding me! I had a lot of fun working on that project. But really. I need some sewing. And some picture taking, which means some clean up. Although I'm thinking that it would be easier to rent an apartment and fix it up just as a place to take adorable photos. That seems practical right?

Ouch! Don't you just hate that when you discovered a miss cut! I usually have to go buy more fabric. Hope today improves. Love the apartment idea, LOL!!

Ha - yes a set for a photo shoot would be great but knowing me, I'd mess that up too. Why does creativity have to be so messy?

VERY practical! You could have all sorts of props. PKM props, of course. Sorry about the butterflies!

I did the exact same thing last night, only I didn't discover it until I finished the item and realized it was painfully small! Oh ugh! A 1/4 inch mistake can be several INCHES in the end! :-(

Having fun with Lori's Row along. Sorry about the mis-cut! I have yet to start my rows. Too many other projects yelling at me.

I think I was preoccupied and that is why mine weren't right. I agree. If I'm not in a good frame of mind I make mistakes.

Courage, my friend.
And if you care to take comfort
in my tale of unfinished business...

You're right an apartment seem really practical. I think you should go for it.

You should see what I did to a quilt that has a serious deadline attached to it last night...sewing at 1 am..not good...not good. Let me know when you rent the apartment, I'll rent one too!

I can't cut at the end of the day, either, only before lunch with no distractions and a full tummy ;). Maybe these smaller butterflies could fly in another project?
