I am trying to sew cloth diapers for a friend. *Trying* to. The one I tried last night was all kinds of inside out wrong. The one this morning, I put on everything backwards. And my last attempt, still inside out on one side. Then the needle broke, and the tip hit my face. My face! A needle!! Jeez. I'll keep plugging away, though.

eek I hate it when everything seems to be going wrong with your sewing. Lol though normally I have a little tantrum that includes throwing my ruler or some other innocent inanimate object at the wall and storming off to the computer. And you know not returning to work on said object for many days. So I admire you for the fact that you just keep going *pats on back* good luck with it and maybe you should wear like one of those head thingies that welders use in case the needle tries to hit your face again

needle to the face?! Shocked ouch!  my advice: take a break for an hour or two, then come back recharged!

Never in my sweet short life have I felt like this before.

Man, I keep reading all these stories where broken needles end up flying in people's faces; makes me paranoid to touch my sewing machine!  I really need to invest in some non-prescription glasses.

Perhaps you should consider some kind of protection, too.  Safety first!   Grin

This is why I always put my glasses on before sewing anything thick or tricky! Undecided

I hate it when things keep going wrong!!!  I feel your pain. 

Also, the needle to the face is one of my deep seeded fears.  I *usually* wear my glasses because I am afraid of this happening and going into my eye.  Thankfully it's never happened, but that fear is very much there!!!

I've worn glasses for more years than not. I think that if I didn't I would go buy a pair of safety glasses. There are so many things that I do that could be dangerous for my eyes... sewing, cleaning, working with any type of tool... My glasses have saved my eyes more times than I care to think.

Sorry to hear about your dipes. (or lack thereof) I remember one day I thought I was totally on in and stack and wacked 4 prs of fleece sweats for each of my kids. That's 12 prs cut in a day! The next day I sat down and attatched 4 toddler legs to 4 8yo size pants. Damn it!!! I'd definately have a rest and start up tommorrow.

I say put it down and walk away.

Later, if you are back on speaking terms with your machine, rip its cover off and oil it up.  You would be surprised at the wonders this can do for your sewing.

Trust me. 

Right now my machine is making a clunk chunk clunk noise and I just am not able to deal with it.  In a day or two perhaps, I might, but for now my FF3 black mage quilt is going to have to wait.
