I would love to be able to keep this resolution, however, I know it won't happen - but a good thought - hope for you much success!

Me: Because I ran out of bobbin thread!! My biggest complaint about all sewing machines....if we can put a man on the moon, why can't we have a sewing machine bobbin that takes an entire spool of thread??? ... See MoreSee Less

Had my longarm hiccup mid program and freeze up so had to do complete shutdown and restart and realized I hadn’t saved the quilt settings ๐Ÿ˜ต

My machine shut off during embroidery right in the middle of a design that I didn't save!

Because the fabric I bought from the fabric superstore was full of snags! #yougetwhatyoupayfor

Ran out off bobbin thread

I SERGED my cuff on inside out using sweater fabric!

Just as I finished winding my bobbin, it broke:(

I have never done this.

A bad storm came up and I had to shut down my machine to protect the electronics.

Veered off the cutting line and wasted fabric!

We always have pizza for Christmas Eve. We used to go out and eat but now no place stays open late enough. It started over 45 years ago when my great aunt gave money to my Mom to buy us kids something.

The Christmas Pickle (and Potato Sausage (as we call it) is delicious!)

Potato bologna!

But there was a sale of really nice 100% cotton and it was cute and further discount if you took what was left on the bolt so....


I have done well with that this year. I only bought fabric once that it was not to complete a project I was making out of my stash. Sad part is I did not make a dent in my stash. Even gave some away and it is like guppies --- it just seems to multiply.

Deb Wieland

That’s me I have fabrics for a couple quilts One day

Jo Burden Goforth

Sounds familiar...


I tried....

Thats me for sure!
