What I'd hoped to do tonight? Make a second Wiksten tank in a smaller size. Alas, it's not to be. I'd forgotten that I still needed to prewash my fabric. Ah well.
So instead, I've decided to share with you a block I made over the weekend. It's a wonky lightening bolt block in aqua and red for the July host of my We Bee Learning bee. We used this tutorial by jenn of all trades.
Now, I'm pretty sure I've shared with you that I'm a bit of a perfectionist when it closes to my crafting. I like perfect points and seams that line up all pretty. This leads to a bit more time with my seam ripper than I'd like, but it's worth it in the end, because to my eye, my mistakes are glaring. Good enough just, well, isn't. Now, one of my stumbling blocks in life is that I am speedy. It sounds like a good thing, right? I do everything super fast. I like to think I'm efficient, but I have to admit that at times, being quick leads to errors that could be averted if I just. slowed. down.
Case in point: the photo above. The red vertical stripes are supposed to start in the top left corner.
Luckily, a little surgery was all it took to get the block back in tip top shape.
