Sometimes I am very pleased when I am sewing. Other times I wonder what crazed maniacal quilter messed things up for me. The unfortunate truth is that I am the only quilter in the house so that crazed sewist who made the mistakes is always ME!
A thread! A big obvious thread. Yikes! What do I do when there is a thread trapped under my quilt top?
How did I miss that? It had to have been there when I was smoothing down the quilt. And for goodness sakes I just quilted around it!
I thought no problem, someone else must have made this mistake before, right? So I googled it. I typed in "what do I do when there is a thread trapped under my quilt top?"
I got all kinds of results about quilt tops, thread and how to quilt. Apparently I am the very first person in the world who has ever made this bone headed move.
Then I took a tiny quilting needle with thread attached. Last thing I needed was to lose a needle in there. Then I poked the needle in the hole.
I wiggled that needle all round until it finally did catch the thread in the middle. By this point I was nervous and sweating. I was afraid I would never get it out.
I drank some water and went back at it. Slowly and painfully I got the needle with the thread nearer and near to the hole. Once I lost it completely and had to start over.
Then suddenly, it worked. I was able to pull out a piece of the thread that was doubled up. I was ecstatic.
I did it! Even though I was incredibly blind and didn't see the thread in the first place and even quilted around it, I got it out. I messed up and I fixed it!
Stay tuned, who knows what mistakes I will make next week.
