A Minor Disaster

Oh Oh!
Okay maybe it's not a disaster but I made a mistake when I calculated the amount of fabric I would need for my Prairie Schoolers and it means a complete change in plans.  I think I mentioned that I was going to stitch all 4 of the designs on the same piece of fabric.  I had discussed it with my framer and we decided it would be easier to frame that way.  Well, I forgot to take that into account when I was figuring out how much fabric I need to cut.  I only measured it as though I had one design going across and top to bottom instead of two.  I was getting ready to start stitching and realized the fabric looked really small for what I wanted.  I do have enough of the same fabric for all 4 pieces.  I'll just have to stitch all the pieces separately.  That's not a big problem but it will make it harder on the framer.  Oh well, what's the old saying, measure twice cut once.  I should remember that for next time.

Oops! I have that problem, too; I'm not very strong in math so I usually mess up somehow when I'm cutting my fabric. I'm sure your pieces will be just as nice as four separates rather than one single!

Don't worry, we have all made that sort of mistake anew times!

I love that saying Measure twice, cut once!I didn't know it. Thanks. AriadnefromGreece!

Sorry that this happened. But I have been there and done that as well. My oldest UFO has become a UFO when I realze that the fabric wouldn't be long enough - and at that time I had already stitched a lot on it, sigh.
