Most of us have experienced those
"What the hell was I thinking?"
moments in our lives.
Whether it be with an outfit, hairstyle or old boyfriend.....
Here's an example of one of my many "what was I thinking?" hairstyles:
...and I remember thinking my hair looked so good that day.
BAD. BAD hairstyle. My only defense is that it was the 80's....
there were a lot worse out there.
Occasionally I start a
"what the hell was I thinking?" project.
I started a faux chenille blanket for a gal I know who's
expecting a baby girl any day now.
It's my first blanket of it's kind and it's safe to
say IT WILL BE THE LAST.
What the hell was I thinking?
Although this is an easy sewing project,
IT IS SO TIME CONSUMING AND MONOTONOUS.
It requires sewing together 4 layers of fabric with several
straight stitch lines.....I'm talking the diagonal length of the fabric
in lines 1/4" to 1/2" apart.......across the whole piece!
I am dying!
I'm only halfway done with the stitching and then I have to
cut each area in between the lines. Then I have to bind it.
I am seeing double and triple when I sew these lines.
I'm reconsidering who I give this blanket to.
While I love making baby gifts, or any gift for that matter,
I have become more choosy about who I
make gifts for. I want to be sure the person I make it for
is going to appreciate the time and love put into it.
I barely know the lady I'm making it for and I thought this
would be easy, using materials I already had.
Boy was I wrong!
My friend who made one for me when I had my little gal
says only the first 50 lines are bad....after that it goes fast.
Well-I'm past 50 and I'm still hating this project!
She also said it will be worth it in the end when I see
it come together.
While I'm sure that is true, it's not true enough
for me to want to make another one anytime soon.
MEGAN-THIS MAKES ME APPRECIATE THE
BLANKET YOU MADE EVEN MORE! IF I EVER QUESTION
YOUR LOVE FOR ME I WILL JUST HAVE TO LOOK AT
THAT BLANKET TO HAVE REASSURANCE!
