I can't believe what I did!
I just let out a howl that was probably heard all over the condo complex. I spent about two hours paper-piecing a very intricate 11 piece section of my Birds of Paradise wall hanging, and then I trimmed the section on the seam line instead of allowing the 1/4 inch seam allowance - all with no alcohol involved. The good thing is that the section was small, so I didn't lose a lot of fabric. The bad thing is that I have to rip all the stitching so I can reuse the pattern.
Now I'm going to have that wine. Arrrrgh!
