Ditto on the bobbin running out.

I hate taking the time to triple read the directions, pin in JUST the right place, and it doesn't at all turn out like it's supposed to.


I cut wrong too.....I HATE that!

Boy, I have to limit it to one? Maybe one at a time. Except nothing original here.

Doing a block wrong is not a good thing.

I've been known to be in the middle of something, get interupted for some reason then it is a while before I get back to it and can't find the pieces.

I get a block together & decide I don't like one of the fabric choices.

I'll stop for now.

All those mentioned AND.... Finding the perfect shade of thread for top stitching... PERFECT match and the sewing machine HATES it...
My Janome only wants gutermann!

Lately I've had a bad time fabric shopping for specific projects. I'll have in mind what I want colorwise, etc. Then I find the perfect fabric, it's the end of the bolt and I'm 1/4 to 1/2 yard short! Maddening!

AND

I have fabric that I don't think I will use for a project so I use it to make a practice/sample block then later decide it would be just perfect for ....whatever and now I don't have enough.

Anything to do with the bobbin messing up annoys the heck out of me!! I can't decide which is worse, bobbin throw-up or running out when you only have a few inches to go.... :(
