I have tension issues... that might just drive me insane.  I can NEVER get the tension right on my machine..

I had that issue with my old machine.  Hubby bought me a fairly inexpensive brand new machine and it drove me crazy.  Now I have an old sturdy one from a friends grandma and never an ounce of trouble with the tension.

the good news is that I don't hate the bag as much today. 

Bad news is I was showing it to someone at work and now she wants one.  I said NO WAY.

Yeah i inherited my Mom's Stradivario....the tension is excellent.    The newer electronic machine I bought 2yrs ago now gets used by the 10 year old.


I have a lot of work to do...but I know what I am doing..which is half the battle for me....and since I am still looking for gainful employment I have more time than others....although I have learned that I should do only one swap at a time.... Cool

I felt dazed, like I just came out of a 4 hour movie I didn't understand.

I've just made another  Roll Eyes bag just in case i decide that i don't like the first one........which i do actually Cheesy However, I am crocheting my partners bag & i sort of feel that it's not going to be as "technical" as a sewn bag so i'm having the "I'm not as good as my partner" worries  Undecided 

Is this normal?  Undecided

I think that I'm done.  Well, I am going to make one more thing tonight and then I have to pick up a couple of things at the store, but I'm mostly done.  So I should be able to mail on Friday!   everyone I've shown the bag to seems to like it, which makes me happy since its the first one of its kind for me.  Lots of first on this. I had to read so many tutorials and then I had to wing a couple of things.  Its not perfect, but I think it will work.  Even my husband is impressed and that never happens.  I show him stuff and he's like, "oh, nice, a blanket" or whatever and now he actually seems impressed. maybe he's just getting better at acting.

Whew, Carnival season is over for a whole other year. I can finally have one day of not leaving the house :-)

I have one last thing to finish and I can send. I love how it turned out and my daughters want one just like it.

Yeah new machines don't have the torque needed to go through so many layers without complaint. I have a singer from the 50's. That baby can go through 18 layers of denim. I still use my new machine, but she's def the princess of the bunch...she likes to be pampered and have please whispered to her often lol

Okay ... so now I have finally chosen a design and have purchased fabric.  I also know the "extras" I plan to include.  Don't worry, mindboggld, I will finish in plenty of time.  I work better "under the gun."   Roll Eyes
