My nemesis: The buttonhole maker!
Harrumph! I'm *nearly* done with the matchy-matchy shirt for Anderson, and I'm having a heck of a time with the buttonhole attachment on my sewing machine! I followed the directions... it's just not working! I luckily thought to use scrap fabrics, and it's a good thing - I've gone through several pieces already! Like 5! What happens is the thread is getting all bunched up under the fabric... and the top thread keeps breaking... is it the tension??? I have a Brother XL-5340 and so far it's been working fine for me... I just don't understand... why me?
I had to take a playdoh break - it's fun to make shapes and smush the bright colors with the colored cups... did you know they have little stamps on the back of them? Anderson likes the mouse on the tiny blue cup. He also likes to 'cut' the little rolls I make for him. Those are some of his words "roll" and "cut", and he somehow makes the word "playdoh", although I haven't seen it come out of his mouth, just heard him.
