    Getting dressed.

    Getting dressed this morning I put on my batwing top, it is so comfortable.then I started to quilt half way though the quilt would not move and every push pull on quilt I old feel around my body. After along time I managed to extract the quilt from the needle ( without breaking it) only to ind my sleeve was well and truly sewn into the quilt.trying to get it off was very funny and then came the unstitching .
    Next time short sleeves no sleeves or tight sleeves. Fool.
    Finished is better than a UFO

    I have hand sewn my top to my project but not machine sewn. I have also lost a couple of strands hair as the thread caught it, I was leaning too close to the thread take up lever.

    You are not a fool! We all make mistakes like this, don't let it bother you.

    You just gave me a good laugh. This sounds like the kind of things I do on a regular basis. No, you are not a fool. Funny...yes, but not a fool!

    Haven't sewn my clothes to a quilt but did quilt in a small stack of fabric - thought the machine sounded odd.

    I was winding a bobbin and the cover stuck to my shirt but I didn't know it. In a panic ordered a new bobbin cover and paid express shipping, walked into the other room when I felt it on my shirt - now I have an extra cover but felt totally silly at the time.
    Quilting makes me happy!..
