Long story...

Ok, seems whatever I do to this applique quilt takes WAY longer than it should and ends up SOoooo much more complicated than is possible!  %&*$#@
I was playing with the arrangement of the vine, berries, and leaves...Figured out that ALL the berries I made last nite are too small!!! I used the wrong size "Perfect Circle" &%$#@
Oh YES, I WILL use the small ones, somewhere on the quilt!!
So, now I only have to make 24 correct sized berries...
This was all before I made the half square triangle border TWICE!  Didn't like it the 1st way, tore 3 borders off, had to take apart the units to resew in 1/8 seam allowance...grrrrr
I really can't believe that just about every step after the main center of this quilt has been irritating!
Oh wait, speaking of the center, I found out where those TINY berries were supposed to go...Umm, in the center of the big flowers...OMG...I quit

2 hours?

After using the "Perfect Circles" to make the first berry, I really didn't think I could do 23 MORE!
I watched the last hour or so of "The Help", and powered through. Only 6 more berries to go! Yay me!
As for the movie? Geesh, I was shocked...Having always lived in Calif. I didn't realize how extensive the culture of entitlement was...Loved the "pie" storyline..bah ha ha...
Oh, and I ripped off the corners of the quilt, and inserted the redish print...
