  • Makes you wanna spit

    If you have never made a mistake then you are not trying hard enough

    I make plenty of mistakes, and some are a lot more frustrating than others - especially when you think you are close to finishing something. Thankfully I found a way around it with my quilling and have learnt to make different elements for a quilled piece before getting enthusiatic and sticking it all to the card. That reduces mistakes a lot

      The familarity breds contempt saying comes to mind. Things become second nature and sometimes you lose concentration and you just balls it up and don't even notice till its all finished. I have done all sorts of things like that. Threading a sequence of stones, all nicely finished and bingo, one sodding sequence right in the middle is wrong, a stone is missing, colourway is crap. Oh well if you didn't make mistakes you wouldn't appreciate all the times it looks good and you got it spot on would you.

        I was about to say isn't it rotten to only realise a mistake once something is finished but of course if you find the mistake before you finish then it is just part of making it and not a mistake.

        Hope you can put it right without too much trouble.

          Sympathy winging your way.

          Have you ever put arms in backwards yet? That's an OMG situation if not spotted before trying it on the customer

          How do you react to a mistake?
          My sewing grandma used to throw the thing on the floor, curse in French (she was French) and stomp around the house muttering.
          I find I throw it down (but on a chair to keep clean) and say naughty words, reach for naughty food and drink and do something else for the rest of the day. Later in the week it's job of the day to unpick and redo and it's never as bad I thought it was.....apart from the silk chiffon jobby that nearly defeated me.

            Had to take apart three quarters of the previous days work on my rag rug as it was a bit tight and was looking mpore like a giant fruit bowl.
            All flat now though.

              I once sewed two trouser legs together. I got laughed at a lot for that one. Still have no idea how I managed it!

              I always remember my needlework teacher in school telling me you get more patience as you get older. Heck, I must have been really impatient in those days! I did do a lot of unpicking, as I remember.

                  I recall when I first started quilting one tiny 2 cm error in the middle resulted in big frills all round the edges. lol.
