Adventures in crafting Hell

Have you ever tried to do something you know you should be able to do and can't. That was me the other day. Someone asked if I could make a onsie for them. No problem. I pulled one apart (only took 3 hours) and mocked up a pattern. I should have known then that this was not going to go well. Well 4 revisions later I have a pattern I am satisfied with and off I go to cutting and sewing land. Got 1/4 of the way into it and I am already not happy. Not happy enough that there is no way they are getting this version and I scrapped it. I am frustrated beyond belief. Well the next day we were going out so I went and bought a pattern. Bring it home modify it and off I go. It only took me 3 hours to sew. A ONSIE! They are not that big! Ok I was really tired and could not see straight by the time I was done. Dave delivered it since It is someone he knows and I told him to tell her I was not happy and by no means did she have to take it. She thought it was fine! I did take a picture of the finished (even though I am not happy with it) product.
