    This is too funny!

    You always run out of whatever you run out of AFTER your local retail source has closed for the day!

    I can't begin to tell you how much I am enjoying this thread. I'm so happy to find out I'm not the only quilting klutz in existence. Great fun to read.

    - Your perfect machine will decide to behave only when you have a dedline.
    - If you need a yellow thread that will be the only one missing in your collection of 743 threads.
    - When there is nothing left to do except enjoy sewing you will have power outage just because.

    This isn't murphy but it's similiar-the power goes out and you decide that since nothing is working you might as well go sew for awhile until you remember that your machine needs electricity also.

    If you go to buy just 1/2 yard to finish a project, everything will be on sale and you'll end up with 5 new yards that do not match what's in your stash.

    My favorite - sewing with no bobbin thread - has been taken. I'm convinced that the more difficult the seam - the greater the likelihood that it will have been done without a bobbin.
    Also, there is removing something from the machine that needs some hand work, walking down the hall, through the dining room and kitchen and realize when you sit down in the family room that you forgot to clip the bobbin thread. (This is one time when it will not run out.)

    You have a temporary design wall up and your pattern all laid out nicely....and your furbaby runs past taking the wall with it.
