mojo-busting $%#$()*!@^ bobbin!


There's nothing like an empty bobbin to ruin your quilting mojo over, and over, and over again. Sheesh, I've filled this bobbin a lot and it annoys me every single time. If I ever get finished sewing for Christmas I swear I will fill dozens of them or better yet buy those already loaded bobbins that they sell...yep, that's what I'm doing.... *SIGH*

I've been sewing since dawn. Really. Look at the funny looking pink glow in this picture.

That's the pink glow of dawn, people! Mind you, I have had 4,205 interruptions and I did stop to eat lunch, but I am not nearly done. I just want to cry. Even Gilbert is doubting that I will ever finish or change his litter box, for that matter.


*SIGH* I wonder what's for dinner tonight.

awww, take a breath. paul and i both put ourselves thru that deadline panic. everyone is getting their xmas cards and ornaments after xmas this year. theres no getting around it. you know its a whole holiday/gradutation season when ever it is recieved it will be recieved happily and thats all that matters. i bought those filled bobbins so i wouldnt have to keep refilling mine but i cant figure out how to get the thread started with out cutting a big chunk of the thread. lol xoxox hang in there baby its almost over!

Honey, I don't envy you at all! I know your pain of the bobbin though. Stupid little suckers! I'm with Freckle and say a gift is a gift no matter when you give it.

Thanks ladies, I am actually in pretty good shape with the quilt tonight. It needs a simple border (1/2 hour...tops), machine quilting (I have no choice) and the binding will get done by Tuesday, I hope.
I'm going to bed now!

Hang in there! Gilbert will walk you through the tough parts...you can always have fun telling someone off if they want to complain about something not getting finished.

Darn bobbins. I'll be glad to pitch in and help you wind some up! Anyhow, I have absolute faith that you'll finish the quilt soon!

Thanks for the link and I am so glad to have found your blog! My bobbin has been giving me fits too...I guess it is a sign of so much holiday sewing.

Blessings!

I also agree with Leeanne, They will be so happy whenever they receive their gifts that you made with loving hands, it really doesn't matter if it's late. No need to stress so hard ya lose all the fun and magic!!! Quilting by very definition is about patience. I think premaking the label is a great idea too, btw, then you have it when you need it!! Can't wait to see pics!!
