I'll start by saying this is not the post I intended to write today. I was "planning" on boasting about finishing my rug. However that is not meant to be. Instead I finally have the answer to why I despite, no loath, nope-- hate binding rugs!!
Let's start at the beginning shall we..... I found my sewing machine in the back of the upstairs closet.
The fact that it was hiding should have been my first clue. However I was still delusion enough to think I could quickly zigzag around my rug and be on my merry way. Hrmpph ....... Yeah right.
It started out fine. I happilly pushed on the petal and it whirred right along. Well, for a minute. And then I could hear a bumping, clunk noise. And then it stopped. Not the noise, the machine stopped. Once I pryed it from the machine, this is what I found
What's up with that??? So I untangled the threads in the machine and re-threaded it. Wheeeee, away I went again.......for about 4 inches. Arrgghhhh!!!
This friggin happened about 6 more times before I finally..........finally got all the way around. By then, naturally, I was "in a mood". All the while muttering "this is why I hate binding rugs" -- over and over again as my blood pressure continued to rise.
You would think this sad story might stop here.....but you would be wrong. I grabbed the scissors to trim off the excess.....and since I was "in a mood", I was a little wild with the scissors AND.....
......I cut the last corner wrong. WHY?? WHY???
So this finally explains why I hate binding rugs. But it raises a new question. Why is my sewing machine doing that? I have a lot of crafty followers - HELP ME
And more importantly "Why does my sewing machine hate me so much?"
