This one was worth it!!!

...well, after threading my machine three times I finally managed to get it up and running. The thread broke when I was threading the bobbin so I took that apart and started all over again. I finished that feat and then threaded the needle which promptly got knotted up because I did it back to front instead of front to back. It is getting hot and humid here (again) and I was about ready to give up however ~ I had this gorgeous material I wanted to use to make another purse so I continued on. I layered the material when I noticed the darn thread came loose from the needle. Thankfully I had just begun to sew the first piece of fabric and quickly saw my mistake. Sometimes things go smoothly and other times ... it just goes. The finished piece came out much better than I had planned so perhaps there was a reason for all that madness.


  1. You sound like I did a few months back. Keep at it and it will become easier as you go along. Many nights I stayed in my studio sewing and making mistakes but that was how I learned.

    This purse is gorgeous! I love it!

  2. Thanks so much for coming to visit my blog and browse my Etsy shop.
    Sometimes little mistakes are what bring something special to my work so I like them.
    Love your pouches,

  3. In the end ... your persistence paid off! What a beautiful creation! At times the blessed heat is most intolerable ... adding to the frustrations we find along the way when weaving a masterpiece. Soon enough though, I know I will be complaining that my fingers are too cold!

    Wishing you a most beautiful and blissful week!

  4. thanks for coming are very talented, its gorgeous!
