Peevish


What are some of your sewing peeves? My biggest, as anyone who has read one of my tutorials already knows, is running out of bobbin thread. And it always seems to happen when I'm running a gathering stitch or topstitching. Or when I'm sewing something really fussy that had tons of pins holding it together. You know how that is...you've just "sewn" around a really difficult curve...and then you realize your bobbin ran out after the first inch.
What makes YOU want to poke your eye out with a seamripper?

I hate that too! But...I think my biggest peeve is a zipper! LOL

Ok, I totally hate that too! I was sewing on a zipper yesterday and it happened to me! After I'm thinking it's all perfect! There needs to be some sort of alarm that goes off when the bobbin is out. It's not like you can see it underneath all that fabric, come on!

That is my worst pet peeve also! An alarm! Wow! Yes! I want one!

My darling Pfaff tells me when my bobbin thread is low. Oh, how I love her.

An alarm? An ALARM? My mom says I shouldn't need an alarm. SHE can tell by the sound when her bobbin is going to run out. HMPF.

(haha But then she called me later that day and told me she jinxed herself--she ran out in the middle of a gathering stitch.)
