Ok, now that everything is fixed I have a confession to make.
I was so excited to be a part of my first swap.
I bought some great fabrics.
I cut squares. I cut some more squares.
I fussy cut 40 squares. (Hey this is a big deal for a newbie like me!!! They take forever!) I was so proud of the little stacks of squares on my dining room table. I took pictures of them (see!)
I packed them up and got ready to head off to the post office.
I got online to find Wendy’s address to mail my little beauties Down Under.
I scanned the e-mail instructions.
Something caught my eye.
Something I didn’t expect.
As in 4″ squares.
Somewhere along the line 3″ squares lodged in my brain and 3″ squares is what I cut.
200 now unusable (for this project anyway) 3″ squares.
I wanted to cry. I wanted to quit. I’ve had a rough couple of weeks. This just topped it off.
With some sympathy and encouragement from my dear husband, I hiked up my big girl panties and headed out to the fabric store – the really nice one- where I bought new fabrics (and another confession- some extra fabric not for the swap)
I went home and cut like crazy.
I discovered that 4″ squares are way easier to cut than 3″ squares.
I packed up the 4 ” squares and sent my husband to the post office with them.
After he left I realized I forgot to take a picture of them, so here is a picture of the scraps.
Any ideas for what I can do with 200 3″ squares of i-spy type fabric?
