Monday, Monday

Monday-it's all there is to say about that. Rain and thunderstorms all damn weekend and when did the sun peek out, last night at about 5:30 PM. Of course today is absolutely beautiful, but no time to enjoy it.

I have a bunch of errands to run, lots of everyone in the house all weekend cleaning to do, almost done the Claudia Bolero in the TLC Cotton Plus and I think I made it a bit too big. I redid the starting chain 400,000 times, etc., measured, etc., and still, looks too wide, but oh well. I have frogged that poor yarn to death lately.

I also bought this pattern (scroll down), which I plan to do in Aunt Lydia's Quick Denim-hope I can fit it all in by this weekend. I also had planned to line the Ticker Tape bag, but don't feel like hauling the sewing machine out, redoing the bobbin, etc. The machine is only about 3 years old (mebbe 4) and I have used it maybe 8 times. It's a Singer, but the damn bobbins tangle all the time and I can't figure out what the hell to do. No one sews in my family, so I am on my own regarding this.

Well, I have a lot to do and a little time to do it, so until later.

If you're not liking the rain, I'd be happy to take it off your hands! Send it my way!

I hope the Claudia bolero didn't wind up too big. I've had projects like that though too, and some are just not meant to be. I really like the second pattern you posted...wonder if I can get away with cropped things when I lose all this weight? lol

I have bobbin problems with my Singer as well...very strange. My $90, 8 year old Brother machine works like a charm, but not the Singer. *sigh* If you do manage to pull it out to line your bag, I hope that it goes smoothly.

I've rambled way too much. I had to comment on every little thing lol.

Try to have a good Monday!

your bobbin tension needs adjusted.. you do that be turning htat little screw in the bobbin holder on e quarter turn.. if that doesnt help do it again but only a quarter turn at a time

My bobbin gets goofy unless I use a 100% cotton thread in it.

I really don't think I can wear shrugs or boleros. I believe it accentuates the big boobiness already going on up top.

We've been getting what seems to be a lot of rain this summer. I'm sorry we send it all out your way just a day or so later. I'm sorrier that you'll probably be getting more on Thursday. It's not my fault, though.
