Fluttering Hearts and High Blood Pressure!

I’ve had one of those days.
You know the ones where you wake up feeling energised and ready to get a lot done, but as the day goes on, everything gradually unravels?  ‘The best laid plans ….’ and all that!
I’ll spare you the infinite details, but they boil down to this:
1. Trying 2 fabric shops looking for a particular shade of green fabric for a class project – fail!
2. Making a start on said project regardless, but sewing 100 hsts to 100 rectangles before realising the hsts were meant to be cut in half again, making 200 hsts to sew on either end of the rectangles – fail!
3. Getting myself comfortable to work over lunch & unpick horrid hst mistake, when my parents call for an impromptu 2 hour visit – lovely to see them, but no work done – fail!
So this evening, I recut the unpicked hsts, put them to one side, and made 2 applique heart blocks for Caroline’s Heart Appeal instead – Success!

Plus, the sun shone ALL day – yippee!

So not a total failure of a day!
