Thanks

Haha that was a total mistake.

I thought to myself that since I didn't have any of those fancy split stitch markers I could eyeball where to start the stitches.

I was obviously wrong, and when I noticed how crooked it was decided to offset the other half the other way to make up for it.

About the time I saw how much off center I was I saw on the table next to me a safety pin. I wouldn't even have had to stand or lean to grab & use it as a stitch marker.

So the result was due to double laziness, (1st) not extending my arm to grab and use the safety-pin and (2d) not pulling out the stitches to center the thing correctly once I noticed the problem.

But I was in a hurry to "write" 2012 for the first time on something fun and not on a bill or something.

MAD LIBS - Driving Tips
Driving a car can be fun if you follow this (STEAMY) advice:

#1: When approaching (ELVES) on the right, always blow your (HAMMER).

#2: Before making a (FAST) turn, always stick your (PINKY TOE AND BIG TOE) out of the window.

#3: Every 2,000 miles, have your (GOOSE) inspected and your (IOWA) checked.

#4: When approaching a school, watch out for (STINKY) (OXEN).

#5: Above all, drive (DELICIOUSLY). The (SASS) you save may be your own!
