Catastrophe!

Argh!  Throw myself on the floor, kick and scream, moan and groan!  At least that’s what I feel like doing.  Mostly I just feel blue.  My BFF is broken.  It’s basically the end of the world.

I was stitching along last night on this little project…

Almost had the top finished.  It was quite late and I was tired, but thoroughly enjoying myself and having so much fun when all of a sudden the thingy that holds the needle came down on my knuckle.  There was pain and some bleeding but nothing compared to what it did to my machine…it won’t sew!!  It moves up and down but won’t make stitches.  Cry, weep, sob.

It is going to the sewing machine hospital and I will miss it.  I hope it comes home very soon because...

…I have till Saturday at 1:00 to have this finished, borders, quilting, binding and all in time for my daughter’s baby shower.

Oh no!! I am so sorry that you got hurt. I hope your knuckle feels better soon. But boy, your knuckle must be pretty tough to break your machine. I know your machine will be fine, but I hope you get your top done before the weekend!! Best wishes on all counts.

Ouch! Doesn't sound good for you or the machine. I have two nice sewing machines. That way there is one for a friend to use when they come over or when my main machine needs a service visit. Hope yours can be easily repaired.

How terrible! And to have a deadline to meet, too. I hope they fix your BFF up good and real quick. Those projects are both lovely. The shower gift really sings to me.

OMG, Annette! As long as you're alright.

Now here is the perfect excuse as to why you need to have a back up machine...a little Featherweight perhaps? If you lived closer, I'd bring mine over right away.

Both quilts are going to look incredible when finished.

I hope you and your BFF are all on the mend soon and back to normal routines. Love the two quilts you're working on - the baby quilt will be much appreciated I'm sure - so very bright and cheerful. - Marlene

Our bff are always under so much pressure when we work to deadlines. The same thing happened to mine last year less than a month out from my daughters wedding when i was making wedding outfits. I was lucky enogh to get mine back within two days

I am so sorry, so bad when the machine quits on us!!! I have a Bernina too so it'll be back soon, good as new I'm sure!! That quilt for your daughter's baby shower is gorgeous.....love the squares on point! Very Beautiful!

Cara said...

Oh poor both of you! Ow, and aah. Hopefully she can be fixed soon!

Tarnyia said...

OH NO... thats like having your throat cut not having your machine... doctor doctor I got a bad case of sewing machine blues hehehehehe

Pokey said...

So sad, I have a few back up machines, but there is nothing like your fav. Mine's a Bernina, too. Sorry about your finder, OUCH!!

Thelma said...

I'm so sorry, I bet you're lost without your machine, i would be. I guess this is a good time to cut the next few projects so when the machine is back you'll be ready to roll!

Béa said...

Hope your machine can be easily repaired, both tops promise to be wonderful !

Robyn said...

Oh dear Annette,
I so know this feeling presently, but I must confess I do have a backstop....

I do hope your knuckle is ok and that your BFF is returned to you safe and sound very soon is good working order.
What do we do without our machines?

Love the things you're working on...so pretty!
