ANYHOW. My original plan was to make a soft white window shade for our living room.

My embroidery adventures usually involve iron on patterns, where I iron said pattern onto my textile with the help of a ruler, level, and pencil to make sure everything is properly placed. This project needed a looser feel, so I embarked on the adventure of freestyle embroidery.
I really, really enjoyed it. So there I am, getting my freestyle on, when I decided to match up the corners to make sure I distributed the figures evenly. Umm...that's when I realized I'd made a mistake.
I quickly realized I hadn't bought the cheap, white, nice RECTANGLE tablecloth. No, I somehow managed to buy the oval one. I...don't even know. So I proceeded to have quite the little hissy, then got myself together, posted my other project for the challenge, folded this up in my sewing basket and snarled every time I thought about it.

|Shapes inside of shapes.|
|More shapes begetting shapes fun.|
|See the problem?|

What about you guys? Have you ever rescued a project you thought was an epic fail?
