Spot the deliberate mistake!

I'm a great one for sneaking a little bit of stitching time in the odd five minutes here and there just before I have to go out somewhere.
This morning I had one such small window of time before I was due to leave for work.
I've not done anything much on my Plaids and Proverbs quilt this week as I'm at a piecing stage and have felt more like hand work so I've been working away on other stitchery instead.
However the components for this flying geese round were sitting on my sewing table just waiting the assembly process
And of course what do you suppose happens when you go down the 'more haste, less speed' route in that small window of time?
Yep - you've got it - now I've got some reverse stitching to do - that'll teach me - I should've unloaded the dishwasher instead!

That goose is like me . . . I always seem to be flying the wrong way *s*

Easy to do though! I still think it's wonderful you cram every spare second full of sewing!

Easily done - you're catching the Clare doh! bug LOL.

I had a bit of frog stitching to do yesterday too! I didn't really mind, as I am just glad to be sewing again, even if it is rippit rippit! haha.

Wow. I do this so often it is not even worthy of a post at my house. How many times have I hit my forehead saying "I can't believe I didn't see that before I sewed that!

LOL Who in their right mind will onload the dishwasher when there is a moment to sit at the sewing machine? Look at it this way, you now have the perfect excuse to use up another five minutes on this project.

Oh Boy! This sounds like me! I hate reverse sewing, but it's got to be done sometimes :O)
Tried to reply, but we are bouncing again lol. Back end of April - suitcase should be full of goodies which will be a bg regret when we are hauling it and 2 kids across London to get the train up to Yorkshire!!
