Just to let everyone know how much I love reading on the comments and suggestions that are posted here. Hoping I don't depress anyone but needing to know....has anyone ever had a day that just goes so far downhill that you either laugh or cry?
Well, here it is, beautiful moring, good needed rain last night, birds chirping, and sun shining. Oh happy day! Cleaned house in the a.m. so not feeling guilty about spending the rest of the day in the not so neat sewing room. No radio, no T.V. just peace and quiet, with a mild breeze coming through the windows...Sweet!
Well, sit down to sew up a very easy square for a quilt, right? First thing the machine eats the corner! Fabric stuck way down in the feed dog. Okay, Iwill fix that later, just want to sew! Try another machine, great, going fast and strong to the end when I realize it only sewed about an inch until the bobbin thread was empty. Now I'm losing patience, just one seam please?
Back to the drawing board again. Why not just change thread color and make some topstitching stand out? Automatic threading cartridge my foot!!! And can I ask why, oh why can we launce men into space, but can't get rid of that stupid notch in a spool of thread? You know the one where the thread always gets hung up on? Yes, that was another of today's mishaps!!
Onward to the "old" machine. Trustworthy, nothing fancy but reliable. Now I'm anxious and will feel much better if I can only get one seam complete, but this old Singer of mine just doesn't quit so all will be okay, until I finish my one stinkin seam only to find out The back got folded up and has to be ripped out! Operator error---need a nap try again tomorrow! :)
