alas

I just had two seams left to sew.
The end was in sight.
And so, I hurried.
But I hadn't pinned enough.
Pieces slipped.
Well, live and learn, I would un-sew and realign.
And then I must finish the last seam, I must.
I over pinned.
I squinted and aligned and re-aligned.
But when I shook out the quilt,
I discovered that the last strip, so carefully sewn,
was,
alas,
upside down.
But it was a perfect seam.
