    I have had that happen too. Empty bobbin also. I will think the bobbin is close to running out and check it often, of course I keep sewing and think it will last until I'm done. You guessed it, after sewing a long seam, as in a border. Go to cut the thread and yep, I ran out not long after I started. I just put in a new bobin and redo it. Getting angry is a waste of time, it would happen too often with all I the ways I can screw up.

    You are definitely not alone. I'll bet 9 out of 10 quilters have done this at one time or another. Maybe even 10 out of 10. I always feel so silly for not catching it before I have gotten too far along.

    Did that yesterday! Good to know I'm not the only one who thinks the bobbin will magically last until I've finished sewing.

    If I had a dollar for every time I got distracted I wish I had some ice cream.

    Amen to that! You could add carrying the sissors to the phone, or one of the fabric pieces etc.
