"Always somethin', ain't it?" the country folk I grew up with would say when things went wrong.
Well, every time I sit down at my sewing machine, it's always somethin'.
Like with this quilt I promised to show you a few weeks ago.
Because this sewing machine is horrible!
I bought it last year - a floor model (lesson learned: never do that again) and the shop owner threw in a few attachments. Like this walking foot for use with quilting - and it has been the bane of my existence ever since.
I tried to do a bit of quilting on it last week and, as usual, my Janome walking foot created a hot mess. Terrible stitches, bunched up sections. Arg!
So instead of finishing my quilt this week, I plan to go sewing machine shopping.
Even in the pouring rain today. Because, as the old country folk used to say, "Always somethin', ain't it?"
