I Sew Tired.............

What's wrong with this picture?
Do you think I might have cut my bias strips from the wrong side?
Something doesn't look right - had even sat down by the machine and started sewing the strips together...perhaps just a tad tired? Threw them in the trash can and then decided...hey! Maybe someone could use a good chuckle...

Cut some more strips...
These look better, don't you think? Need more bias stems for the 2nd Cherry Tree Border...
 Just in case you are wondering if I have totally lost it...did manage to make a little bed caddy for Mr. Outback. We have a new 5th wheel RV and "my" side of the bed has a very clever little nook for storing the Kindle, reading glasses, etc. So guess who wanted a place to store "their" Kindle (yes, we are His and Hers) and reading glasses...found this free pattern online and it worked up very quickly over the weekend. 
Good thing it didn't call for binding cut on the bias!
Wishing you a week filled with smiles and chuckles...and maybe a handful of jelly beans...


Off to fix dinner and perhaps get to bed a bit earlier...back later.

I could only chuckle because I always seem to cut my bias strips the wrong way EVERY time!...Love the bed caddy. Hubby might like those in the 5th wheel...

I think we have all done that little bias trick. Too bad it doesn't work. LOL

So glad to see that I am not the only one who makes silly mistakes!

That's a nice little book caddy - even better that the pattern was free and easy. Happy Easter!

That's the sort of thing I'd do and not admit to, lol. What a great idea to have caddys.

Thanks for sharing your funky bias strips. It made my day to see that I'm not the only one who does stuff like that. It's usually the simple things that catch me.

I like that little bed caddy. I'll bet your RV is ship shape and full of great little ideas and things to make life easy on the road.
