    FMQ like it's going out of style. Tension is perfect. Needles are cooperating, and I've got some stupid song that I love stuck in my head. Then, all of a sudden IT QUIT SEWING! Why?............ Ah, jeeze, I just ran out of monofilament thread! Only another half an hour or so and I would have been done with this part of my Bargello. Now I have to wait until Friday until I can buy more. I just needed to share my pain with everyone. :lol:

    Time off for machine? I think not. There is a WIP waiting in the wings for some straight sewing. Kitty is disguising herself as scrap fabric and has nested in my tote. :wink:

    Oh no! :-(

    If I happen to notice that my thread is running low, I sew faster. That way I should get finished before the thread runs out!

    :lol: :wink: :lol:

    (Too bad it doesn't really work that way, huh? :D )

    You were probably ready for a break anyway. Get more thread and you'll be off and running again!!

    My teddy bear is to precious to kick. It was made from my Nana's mink coat that was way to small for me. Besides, I don't want to get clobbered by PITA people! (Hey, I didn't do it. The coat was made back in the 60's, I just had it repurposed.) It still has Nana's cologne.

    Well, I had no wine, so I substituted a chocolate milk shake. Is that acceptable? ;-)
