Eghads!!! There is a blog I follow named Sewing is Hard and I am feeling it right now. Last Monday I washed and dried my fabric and even cut it out using my new rotary cutter and self healing mat. I am going to have to get used to using it as my back took extreme displeasure in bending over on the floor to cut.
I am going to hint to hubby that I would be ever so pleased if he would make me a table that could fold down against the wall when it is not in use. I know he will give me twenty reasons why it is a dumb idea, but I can see it already and if I need to I will build it myself.
So I have been procrastinating BIG TIME. Whatever I can do to not sew, I have done. My house is clean, my computer and all of its folders are in amazing shape for the first time EVER. I even spent four hours yesterday digging a garden. All of that so I would not sew? Crazy right?
Well today I told myself that even if it is only for an hour, I would sew. This morning I procrastinated more. Did three loads of laundry and hung them all out to dry. Washed and actually blew dry (out) my hair. I never do this! Hmmm what more can I find to do? Iron? Yup! Got that done.
Now it is almost 2:00 and I have not sewn. BUT...I did sit down at the machine and it all became perfectly clear why I have been procrastinating. The last time I sewed, which was almost a year ago, I thought I would clean the machine. I have no clue about machines and how they work, so this was not a good idea. But I always read about sewing bloggers who know EVERYTHING about numerous machines. Could I become one of them? Not likely.
Well the problem was that I took the thing that holds the bobbin out and took the slide plate off and I could not get either one of them back properly. I had totally forgotten that I had done this and there was a problem with the machine. The problem being I had no idea how to get it back to working condition.
But hark, I hear an angel in my ear. IT wasn't an angel? Oh! Well I heard something or thought something or something, something and I was able to get it back working.
So now I have no excuse...no pictures for this post either...but I am going to sew.
