Starting All Over Again

If you've been following my blog I had been doing the fan blocks from Carole Samples Daddies Ties are Mommies now. I haven't posted progress in a while because the dupioni fabric I had used for the background started messing up really bad. I would barely push with my marking pencil and the dupioni would pull apart,,,holes would form,,and I would not be pushing hard at all,,,it would get runs in it,,,so I wasn't about to continue all the intricate work for it to start unraveling over a period of time,,I had two completed blocks and one I had started the lace on. So the remaining blocks I went and ripped out all that dupioni,,dyed me some fabric and starting all over again. Apparently I got a bad batch of dupioni from Hancocks,,and of course I didn't keep the receipt so I didn't even try to take it back. So after the disappointment of having to start over again,,I am back in the saddle again.

Thanks Karen! It's been so hard getting going again.

You are wonderful, Miss Thelma! We all know how hard it is to rippit and start all over again, and so often I've just given up and not continued with something that was really important to me. Your FANS are going to be SO worth the extra trouble when you are finished -- mark my words, as our Victorian counterparts used to say!

Love and encouragement to you, dear friend...

miss carole, who hopes BLOGGER recognizes me after so many months!

Thank you so much Miss Carole! I do want to get my blocks finished. As soon as I get back home I am going to work on them some more. It was devestating and it took me awhile to even rip them out. But I will get them finished.
