I definitely should have stayed in bed this morning. But instead, I spent the morning merrily working on the last ring for Sedona Star Month 4, congratulating myself the whole time because I felt I had really mastered it. I got it all together and this was the result:
The first two were perfect! What happened with this one?
I checked my seams again with pins at the corners, and found that even though I was right on the lines, several of the corners were off by about 1/16". And because they were always off in the same direction, it added up. Overall, the size of the circle is 9.75" instead of 10". And you can see how wobbly it is.
So for the rest of the afternoon it looks like my seam ripper will be busy. Without fail this month, every time I let my mind wander or I get cocky, I make a mistake. It really requires complete focus.
Oh, well, it is fixable.
Plus, halfway through the morning, a heavy painting spontaneously fell off a shelf and broke my beloved Enso meditation timer/alarm clock. So that's going to be expensive to replace.
What a day!
