Royal Mess

Like many, I'm excited about the upcoming Royal Wedding. I've enjoyed watching all the media and biographical coverage and you can bet I'll be glued to the television early Friday morning in these shoes....

Ha! All that salty ham and potato salad has made roomy flip flops my footwear of choice necessity. My cankles have cankles. So Monday, I decided I wanted to make a Union Jack to commemorate the big day. I attempted this paper-pieced pattern.
And failed miserably. I cut the first part wrong on three of the four pieces. Brilliant. Not to be discouraged, I decided to wing a Union Jack. It looked pretty easy.
Or not. My next thought was to make it wonky. I can do wonky. I haven't tried it yet, but I will.
Although my first attempts are in the crapper (not literally, we're on septic), I will keep a stiff upper lip.

With no help from the dog. What a nut.


  1. is that my union jack you are working on? very nice!

  2. you're the first one of my friends who's said she's interested in the wedding! I'm an anglophile but not a fan of any wedding, much less this over-the-top kind. you just needed to make those corner strips a lot longer and you'd have had it... Wonky will make it even better!

  3. Keep going I'm sure you will get your union jack. Isn't it funny how it is harder to do than it looks. Love the shoes!

  4. Funny post! Thanks for a good snicker.


I would love to hear from you. Comments make my day!
