Today was one of those BAD sewing days. I had a great holiday weekend hosting friends from the States. Once they left I was ready to get Dorothy out and get ahead on a tunic. I’ve been working on it during class time (I’m taking a beginner’s dressmaking class for the last 3 weeks!) and I really want to get it done and over with so I can move on to a new project. Sadly, I failed at getting ahead. I did manage to gather, stitch and unstitch a neckline TWICE! Ugh. And to make matters worse my machine started skipping stitches. I re-threaded it twice, cleaned out the bobbin holder, re-adjusted the needle, played with the tension…And it is still skipping. Don’t know what it can be. And after torturing my poor fabric (so many puncture holes!) I gave up on sewing and gave into feeling sad. I should be in class but instead I am moping about my sewing skills, or lack there of.
Tomorrow is another day. Tomorrow I will try again. But today…today I think I will just be a sad panda.
