My sewing machine and I have been duking it out this week. I'm not sure why she is so ornery with me. Of course I realize my sewing machine is an inanimate object and doesn't really have feelings but we spend so much time together I tend to think of her as a good friend and when we disagree about when and how she should sew well, I tend to take it personally.
So I've been throwing spools of thread, ripping out seams and doing a lot of yelling she in return has been messing up my stitches and stopping for no reason. I thought we needed a break and stepped aside and did some hand stitching, but when I return, thinking we might have made up she starts up with her shenanigans again.
Amidst all this turmoil I somehow managed to actually finish some dolls this week. This weekend I'm going to try to patch up my relationship with my sewing machine, give her a good cleaning and oiling and I'm hoping my efforts will make her see that we really can be friends.
