PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS: It will make your life a lot easier!

I am really a ditz sometimes!
Yes, I admit to it....quite a bit actually,
but I guess that is how we learn
from our mistakes.

I am participating in Cindy's Fall Banner Swap and I was suppose to make 8 scarecrows and 4 letter "L's". As you can see from the photo's below I did make my scarecrows and letters I spent hours working on them and although they didn't turn out exactly like what I was wanting I thought they were pretty cute.

as I'm getting ready to go to the post office to mail these little guys to Cindy
I looked at her blog
and discovered I had made them wrong
Oh man!
How could I be so stupid?
Why didn't I read the instructions completely?
I was suppose to put my scarecrows and letters on
Okay, get ahold of yourself Sherry
and get BUSY remaking the banners!

Here are my finished triangle pieces.
I have 4 of each scarecrown and 4 letter "L's"
and then I made 4 crows as an extra
that Cindy can do with as she pleases.
So my note to myself is to
it will make your life a lot easier!

I'm glad you caught the boo-boo, but I do think the scarecrows are really adorable!
I like the banners you made for the children in your previous post. They sure are getting big!

What a horrible feeling to realize that goof as you were (you thought) all finished with the swap! That is so something I would do....I think your scarecrows are simply adorable!

My DIL made this up using the pictures of my 5 oldest boys. So funny!
