WOW = WIPs On Wednesdays
If any of you have faced this dreadful error message, you'll know just how I feel.
Weeks of work - gone. Erased in a few seconds.
I don't know what's worse: losing an entire quilt project in a split second? Or the fact that I didn't learn my lesson the first time around? You see, this exact thing happened to me last year with my last BOM, Forget Me Not. I ended up re-drafting that entire pattern by hand. I had no other choice. And I was determined not to make the same mistake. Why did I give it another go? I don't know. I don't know what I was thinking. I should have learnt my lesson, if I had I'd be sitting back with a coffee browsing through the WOWs. Somehow, however well intentioned, I always end up creating more work for myself. Why? I don't know. I do always start out with the intention of making things easier, faster, better. Hmmmm. Somewhere, amongst hundreds of drawn applique pieces there was a polygon that was no good, and this little polygon somehow had the power to wipe out my entire quilt.
Don't get me wrong: I don't want you to think I've given up, I simply can't. The upcoming BOM is perhaps the most intricate quilt I've worked on and I'm looking forward to sharing it with you. Hopefully sooner rather than later.
What's Your WOW ?
