Murphy's Law

I read this on a quilting board today...I loved it.

           Murphy's Laws of Sewing (Anonymous)  
 Fusible interfacings always fuse to the iron.
The serger only eats the customer's garment.
If you need 6 buttons, you'll find 5 in your button box.
The seam you meant to rip out is invariably the other one.
When you are in a hurry, the needle eye is always too small.
The fabric you forgot to pre-shrink will always shrink the most.
The pattern you wanted to make again will have one key piece missing.
If you drop something out of your sewing basket, it will be your box of
pins...with the cover off.
Whenever the construction process is going well, the bobbin thread runs out.
Your lost needle will be found by your son, husband, or
brother-in-law...while walking barefoot.
Facings tend to be sewn to the wrong side. (Opposites attract.)
Collar points don't match, and you've trimmed all the seams.
The iron never scorches the garment until its final pressing.
Pant seams always rip where they are the most noticeable.
The steam iron only burps rusty water on light silk fabric.
The sewing machine light usually burns out on Sunday.
Pinking shears get dull just by looking at them.
Gathering threads always break in the middle.
The scissors cut easiest past the buttonhole.
The magnitude of the goof is in direct proportion to
the cost of the fabric.

First Project of 2012

Working on the 168 flying geese blocks needed for my first project of 2012!! I glad to have time to get back on the sewing machine. I'm making the flying geese by the method that seems to be in all the quilt magazines, even though it has been printed before. It is fairly fast.  I love blue and yellow together.
