    Getting dressed.

    Getting dressed this morning I put on my batwing top, it is so comfortable.then I started to quilt half way though the quilt would not move and every push pull on quilt I old feel around my body. After along time I managed to extract the quilt from the needle ( without breaking it) only to ind my sleeve was well and truly sewn into the quilt.trying to get it off was very funny and then came the unstitching .
    Next time short sleeves no sleeves or tight sleeves. Fool.
    Finished is better than a UFO

    I have hand sewn my top to my project but not machine sewn. I have also lost a couple of strands hair as the thread caught it, I was leaning too close to the thread take up lever.

    You are not a fool! We all make mistakes like this, don't let it bother you.

    You just gave me a good laugh. This sounds like the kind of things I do on a regular basis. No, you are not a fool. Funny...yes, but not a fool!

    Haven't sewn my clothes to a quilt but did quilt in a small stack of fabric - thought the machine sounded odd.

    I was winding a bobbin and the cover stuck to my shirt but I didn't know it. In a panic ordered a new bobbin cover and paid express shipping, walked into the other room when I felt it on my shirt - now I have an extra cover but felt totally silly at the time.
    Quilting makes me happy!..

    i haven't sewn any clothing yet but had to explain to the hair stylist what happened to my bangs once. I have to sew with out my glasses now so I have my head real close to the machine. I was sewing on a old new home and the thingy that goes up and down that the thread is fed through ate the front of my hair. the only way to get it out was to cut my hair, it ended up pretty short and a mess. Now I make sure I have a headband on LOL.

    Never sewed my top, but did quilt into my robe once. I think we've all done that, at one time or another. Just laugh it off!

    O my goodness, so sorry. But it is funny when you're not on the unsewing end.

    When I was a hand quilter, I managed to quilt my skirt along with my quilting.
