Ever made a mistake...?

I need to learn to post the picture then come back to edit the copy. When I do it all through Picasa, it doesn't always post and then I lose all that I've "talked". That was not my first mistake today.

The picture you see shows a snowman block done the right way. The triangles around it, if you look closely, will never resemble that block. And, that's the way I had all four of them at first! Perhaps I should follow the old admonition, "make a sample block, dummy!" lol No, I thought the pictures and instructions in the Fons and Porter Christmas issue '05 were clear and precise and I would have no trouble. Well, the instructions are good, it's the reader that wasn't.

Linda, do you have a cute little snowman block for your December wallhanging? This would be a nice one. It measures only 7 1/2" but you could add a little border. Hmm..maybe I should start a monthly hanging? I may have to get the instructions for the base from you.

I'm going to finish the other two blocks the right way then I'm going to go color my hair. I thought I would let the black color grow off, then color my gray hair a light ash brown and do some highlights but it just looks horrible at this point. I can't go to Houston looking like this. Then there's laundry to do and James wants to go car window shopping. We'll see...I think it's warming up enough outside that he can go golfing.

Nope, got December/January to go yet. It calls for a fusible Santa and you use the house block when it isn't anything in particular.

I do have that magazine though and thought at the time that it was cuter than the dickens!

And mistakes?---I've made more than I can count, LOL.
