It just figures, I get my sewing maching out, start chain piecing for a wallhanging border and surprise... it is acting up! Skipped stitches, breaking needle, clumps of wadded thread underneath and the light bulb blows! Really? I really didn't need it! Still have to get my dress and mog dress done for DD's wedding! And some gifts! I don't do well with mechanical things so I have to wait for a friend to be unbusy so she can help me get it straightened out. DH is great with cars but has no clue when it comes to my sewingmachine. GRRR!
