    Ha ha! Knew I forgot something.

    I'm quilting along .. a large meander ... zooming away. Every time I stop to adjust my quilt, the quilt nudges something plastic on the table. I hear the rattle each time and ignore it. Finally after the 5th or 6th time I thought "what the heck am I hitting???".

    The bobbin cover!!

    Darn I knew I forgot to do something when I changed the bobbin.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    It's always something we forget in our rush to sew/quilt. Have fun and take time to laugh at yourself. I do some of the things I've done you gotta laugh. Keeps your sanity going. Your not alone. Sue

    Thank goodness you found it before you sewed over it! It is always best to check when the machine just doesn't sound right. I quilted a good size section with a paper pattern piece under a quilt. I sat there stunned for a bit and then decided to sacrifice the pattern rather than redoing the quilting. I traced the pattern piece onto tissue paper and then carefully ripped the pattern off the wrong side of the quilting. You know your sewing room needs cleaning when you start sewing in things from the table.

    Ha-ha-hee=hee-hee I've done that (red embarrassed face here) Also, "Square, what's that?" like several previous posts. But don't we have fun?!

    That puts the "fun" in quilting...if we can make those mistakes and laugh at ourselves, and then figure out how to correct that mistake with the least amount of work!
