trial and error

a while back i was inspired by the process pledge over at r0ssie.blogspot.com/2010/05/process-pledge.html in short this where bloggers include more than just the perfect finished project. instead you show all of the process involved in making something by hand. the process of "working out the kinks." today i'm joining the bandwagon....
here's the "quilt" i was working on. i put it in quotations because i decided to make it into a pillow case instead. probably because i could no longer take that i couldn't get the points to all match up. :) above is the front of the pillow. below is the back of the pillow.....
i recently read from someone that one of their motto's is to do at least one thing every day that your kiddo(s) can't undo. i loved this. anybody with children can tell you that it doesn't take long for them undo anything you've done in less time than it took you to do it. after making this pillow my second motto is don't do anything you'll have to undo later. i had exactly 3 and half sides sewn before i realized that after i turned it to put the pillow in it it would be backwards. sigh. at least the front is on right.
