Okay so last night I sat down at my sewing machine that I bought in November and well okay..... the tension was being weird and then I tried to use a very lightweight material without that fuse stuff.... and that didnt work but things were going on just swimmingly.... then well.... We had a fight.. and I told it that it was either going to behave or be thrown out! Yes I did..... lol well ..... I guess it was more like " ahhhhhhh (tears) please work right... " LOL okay okay so I know it cant talk back but you know... so anyway the bobbin thread was doing some crazy stuff so I had to take it out which Im glad I did... because I had to clean it... I guess the previous owner didnt do that... well trying to put it back...... UGH it took me 45 minutes, a broken needle, and then a tutorial online (because the book wasnt clear) to put it back in... so 45 minutes later, 5 extra minutes to figure out how to take that needle out and put in a new one... (recalculating time..... 50 mins!) I was able to use it again.... BUT I do know how to do that again and my sewing machine and I are friends now! YAY! I did get one stocking sewn! I was going to hand sew it and had actually started to but I didnt like it and took that out and then sewed it the same color as the felt and I liked it so much better because of what I am going to do to them! Im so excited.... I have 7 more to cut out now and sew! WHEW!!!! I will post a picture of the stockings when they are complete!
