House of Mirrors

Have you ever been in the House of Mirrors at a county fair? Everything looks distorted with the images changing as you round each counter. I was there yesterday morning .... my second panel for Bonnie Hunter's Trip Around the World had quite a few twists and turns, none looking quite like the pattern.

I was going for a Mirror Image but was getting an undetected House of Mirrors. I got four really pretty seams stitched and pressed before the House of Mirrors became apparent. I am not sure exactly what happened. I do know it has to do with the fifth strip - the only one of that specific color in the panel.

Much seam ripping later I got this - a Mirror Image ....
Am I the only one capable of taking a well written, rather simple pattern and creating a House of Mirrors? I hope not (ha!)

Ms Cha Cha missed the whole process. She was sulking under the bed after being scolded for once again walking on the kitchen counter, Why, oh why are her favorite places to be and things to do the ones I don't allow?

I still think it looks so pretty with the soft colours you've chosen.

Oh, and no, you're not the only one to be able to take a simple instruction, and get it wrong. I can do that too, even when I've written the instructions myself!
