Reality Bites

When you look at starting a new project do you stop and actually think through everything that's involved?

I obviously do not.
How do I know this?
Because yesterday afternoon when I was cutting for my Liberty Spools Quilt it dawned upon me..... 
Oh my 100 spools means 400 HST!


Oh well, cut now. Better start drawing some lines on these white squares.

hugs, Sharon
