I have finally completed sewing 24 school bags with all the handles tightly secured.
You should be able to count 24 corners. No, don't waste your time.
Plus each little bag has a prayer tucked inside.
Some of you find hiking a real task, well, I feel like I just climbed Mt. Everest.
Sewing for me does not come easy and why is it that nobody tells you the hints?
Every time, I attached a new handle, the sewing threads would jam.
So I reviewed my manual and it talked about adjusting different tensions.
I tried everything that the manual suggested.
Guess who's overwhelmed with tension....
I finally called the retail shop where I purchased the new machine and
she said, "Oh, just make sure that the "thread take-up lever is always at the top."
So I tried that, and Bingo, that solved my problem.
But why doesn't anyone tell us these tricks?
I think that's why I got rid of my old machine 15 years ago....
That's why I didn't want to sew anymore.
Then one day, when I was in the middle of trying to pace myself,
timing myself, so that I could complete the bags by this week,
I noticed I had some yucky stuff all over my arm.
Obviously this was the dough from my cake that I had just baked.
What a mess, threads all over the floor, and it's all cleaned up now.
Maybe I need to have a garbage can closer by, but you know how the threads
tend to fall and stick and grab everything that passes them by.
Anyways it's these little hints that can make life much easier and more pleasant.
Now, my little man wants to go to the Fabric shop to pick out his favorite cloth
so that I can make him some new PJ's.
Can't wait to take him. I wonder what he'll choose.
I guess we all have different mountains to climb.
What mountain are you climbing this week?
