Failing Along - The December Edition

 I was so excited to finish the Double Wedding Ring top.....until I noticed a big mistake.
Thank you to everyone who gave me so much encouragement and positive feedback.  Can spot the error?   Here it is below before it was all sewn together.  Check out the red and blue rings.

I will be fixing it and I show you the error at the end of the post.

I saved a Titmouse in our garage recently.  He was so stunned he sat on my hand for about 5 minutes.  I was able to pet him gently.

I  made an elaborate Dickens set up this year.   You can see more photos and videos on my Instagram.  Coco is a real fan.
Andrew and I cut our own tree this year - first time in my life. Okay, he cut, I picked out, ha ha
It was fun and we'll do that again.   It is still completely undecorated.
This year I put out the big vintage lights - just for  fun.  It is very nostalgic for  me to see them with a little snow.
Everything was going well until covid got me.  I got sick last Thursday and on Sunday tested positive for covid.  I had a telehealth appointment and was prescribed Plaxlovid.   Here is the written information.  Yikes.
Luckily I have a spare TV and moved into a guest room for movies and relaxing with Nutmeg.
I've done a little gift crocheting....and some ripping out....thanks covid.
I received this sweet Christmas gift from a quilting friend.   It is perfect for  my morning coffee and my evening wine.  Sometimes the small things mean so much.
I'll leave you with this vintage photo that I found recently.  It is me and my mother 60 years ago this Christmas.  I am 6 months old and she is 20.  She died on December 10, 1996 so it is a very special little photo to me.
I wish you all Health and Happiness during the Holidays.  I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the support and friendship you have shown with me through my quilting and life journeys.

Oh, I almost forgot.  Here is the big mistake:  the center four blocks which were sewn together first, were put in wrong.    The arcs that are circled are inverted.  I need to rotate the whole section clockwise two turns, which is180 degrees, right?
It should look like this - the red ring has all reds arcs, the blue ring has all blue arcs.
