    Don't you just hate it when you are trying to insert the bobbin in the machine and it flips out of your fingers and rolls to some inaccessible place leaving you holding about 6 yards of unwound thread? Time for chocolate...

    Yes -

    Or when I bump the box of pins and they go flying - and the magnet won't pick them up . . . .

    Or when you are hand stitching something while sitting on the couch, and all of a sudden you can't find the needle, but you can be darned sure your significant other will find it at the most inopportune time -- and in the worst place?

    I really hate when I'm using my Viking Sapphire and the bobbin falls on the floor and rolls behind the cabinet. The metal bobbins for the other machines can be retrieved with the magnet stick... :shock:

    I really hate when I'm treadling and I forget to catch the handwheel when I stop and it goes backwards and causes a huge thread barf and I have to stop and get it all out. Of course it must be rethreaded.

    LOL LOL This happens to me a lot with my butter fingers, and they ALWAYS roll into the furtherest corner where you cant reach it. Then you have to pull out the desk and everything swearing under your breath the whole time and thinking why do I do this to myself?

    Im glad Im not the only one :lol: :lol:

    Or when your 4 yo gets into your stash and pulls 15 different fq and so lovenly lays them all over your floor. Then you proceed to ask him so nicely to pick it up and he scrunches everyone of them to the point you have to iron them all over again.

    Or when you are at Stitch-N-B%$@h at a friend's house working on some hand stitching while sitting around her diningroom table and at the end of the evening you find that you have spent the whole time carefully stitching her tablecloth to the back of your project?! Argh!!!
