so it's probably not as epic as I felt last night but I knew I could count on all of you for some moral support. I have been working on a granny square tetris Afghan for a friend's "Christmas present" it was supposed to be a Christmas present anyway I started it on December 1st and greatly underestimated the amount of time it would require. I have been SC'ing it all together as I go and weaving in all my ends as I do it so it looks pretty. but I didn't make rows I actually put together tetris blocks and then sc'd all the blocks together thinking it would be more fun to just "play tetris"
Last night I spread it out on the bed (it was 80% done) because I wanted to admire my work, stood back, smiled, and called DH in to show off my awesomeness.............
He then pointed out my epic failure insdead.
I had messed up the grid and one of my blocks had not fully descended. It wasn't just a bad tetris move it was an impossible error that could never actually happen in a game... and I had already done a bunch of work on top of it.
I immediately started crying and calling it an epic failure. I desperately wanted to send this out on wed, but now it needs surgery not to mention I still need to complete it. I got to the point where I was just disgusted by it, this was my masterpiece I have been working on this monstrosity for the last 32 days and even been carting it back and forth to work so I could work on it during my lunch break. All of the guys in my office have been calling me grandma for a month!
I told DH I wanted to bring it outside and run it over repeatedly with the car (we live in upstate new york and the driveway is currently very dirty and slushy)
The worst part of this is that even if I wanted to send it as is in it's current epic failure state I can't because... a) the friend it is going to as a christmas present is a video game programmer and b) I have to fix it because I appear to be some kind of crafting perfectionist everything else be damned but my crafts must be perfect
Just need a little moral support last night I had to put it in a pillowcase because I couldn't look at it anymore it just disgusted me I couldn't look away from the group of blocks... epic failure...
