6 note to self.


Measure twice.
Cut once.
Why yes, I did cut the largest and most important block of this quilt an inch and a half too short and now I have to buy more fabric.  Will I ever learn?  Probably not.

Also, after one day, my market tote giveaway has 481 comments!  Thank you all so much for entering! It's been so fun reading all of your comments and gaining so many new followers!  Haven't entered yet?  You have until the end of Thursday!
