My sewing machine is poorly

It is not feeling very well at all. It keeps skipping stitches, and just makes holes and leaves a long trial of thread behind but doesn't actually do any sewing. So my deadline of 8 things listed on Coriandr by sunday isn't looking very likely :(

According to my mom official sewing machine consultant it could be that the needle is blunt, or that my tension is wrong, or 'something else'. I haven't touched my tension, so it can't be that. I've replaced my needle but have been waiting for Munchkin to go to sleep before I try it out. I'm really crossing my fingers it's not 'something else' because that would mean a visit to the sewing machine doctor in Manchester, which usually means spending money.

Never mind, I managed to get in my entry to the Crafty Chica Beach Tote Challenge finished and loaded my photos up online. I like my bag, but it's nowhere near good enough to win, some of the entries are amazing! You can see them on the Flickr Group.

  1. Bugger, hate when that happens! I normally take both the thread and the bobbin completely out and rewind everything. And cleaning the lint out from underneath helps too, much as it pains me to say / do... Good luck!
