Lo and Behold...

Hello!    

This evening, I was working away and then lo and behold, right in the middle of it all, I found a block that was totally opposite in every way from all the other blocks.     

The Correct Way
The one to rip out
So the seam ripper came out and I ripped out every seam, including the applique.  Then resewed the block the correct way.  


It seems that no matter what, I tend to always wind up ripping out a seam or two... this time it was four seams and an applique.  


Live and learn they say... I had some music on and believe it or not, I was able to rip out the seams, stress free.  :)

I want to close with a quote from "Quilted Hearts"...

Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off the goal. ~ Hannah Moore


I was seeing my backwards block as an obstacle, but then realized, it was just a jog in the path I was on.  I just had to rip on through and straighten it out, to keep moving forward.

Have a great weekend!!

God bless and keep you,
Sonia
