Mid-stitch. I was mid-stitch on a redemption pouch when it happened. I had the day off from kids and work, so I was making real progress in trying to make zipper pouches. I was only doing one zip pouches, because the three zip had turned out to be crap. I made one and it was glorious! So, after lunch out with my husband, I came back and did a little assembly line cutting and stitching, like so:
And then I was on my third zipper, when the entire piece that holds the needle onto the uppy-downy (technical term) part of the sewing machine fell right off. WTF? These are the parts and I could not get them back on:
It was dropped off for repairs and they said I had a screw loose. Oh, I mean, the sewing machine had a screw loose. The guy said he'd drop it off for pick up when it warms up, which I'm assuming means he'll be there in July. I said as much and then asked him if he was suggesting I find a new hobby. Anyway, he also said that there was a lot of lint in my machine. It was only serviced less than a year ago, so what is up with that. I should check my belly button and see if all my friends have abandoned ship for safe haven in my sewing machine.
