End of an Era

Well, I knew my sewing machine prowess had to come to an end sooner or later. I just got WAY too confident in my abilities and, silly me, decided to make another ruffle tank top with some left-over scraps from this memo board:

I should have known better! My sewing machine was not having it and refused to cooperate! The thread keeps getting caught up underneath in the bobbin housing. What should have taken about 20 minutes ended up costing me about two hours of frustration and with nothing to show for it! Oh, well, I'm going to take a break today for some retail therapy. Maybe I will start over tomorrow and figure out the problem.


  1. Well the message board is awesome! Love the colors and fabric, you always coordinate so well!

  2. Retail therapy fixes everything :) Good luck!

  3. Message board is so pretty!

    I am currently undergoing the same exact type of problem with my sewing I've just walked away. Retail therapy sounds like a cure to me! ;) Have fun!

  4. I totally understand! I often just walk away and go do other things until the muses speak to me later!! That's why I have so many crafts! :)

  5. Hi! I have used that same fabric to make some of my dog collars (my favorite model is my son's pug, Booda). Your message board is super cute!
