My husband/video tutorial cameraman, works second shift so we only have two nights off together each week. Yesterday was one of those nights, so I worked my little tail off to finish sewing my T-shirt quilt top together so we could film a video on how to mark it, layer and baste it.
I got the whole top pieced, all but two blocks marked and had negotiated favors with my husband who didn’t want to leave his comfy chair, beer, peanuts and remotes. Then I realized I sewed two entire rows on upside down.
I think I’m going to blame it on watching “Jersey Shore” while I was piecing the top. I think I lose a couple IQ points every time I watch an episode, but I can’t stop. It’s kind of like a car wreck you can’t help but look at.
But by the time I made this realization it was pretty late, I was still tired from helping to cover the Iowa caucus at the newspaper I work at and would likely have made more mistakes if I attempted to correct my sewing error last night.
I’m going to fix the top tonight and negotiate more favors with my cameraman on Saturday afternoon to shoot the next T-shirt quilt video tutorial. So check back here tomorrow for the next video.
