Cuss words and flying machines!

I'm going to F-ing scream and throw both of my sewing machines out the window even though they are not to blame! Just because I am so pissed at myself right now!!!!!

I decided to go round 3 with my embroidery machine! I got all new needles, thread and interfacing so I could use the damn thing and it would finally work! Well, it did. After some practice and ruining a small piece of my precious birdie fabric, I was ready to embroider my name onto a piece to use. I lined it all up, got it going, got it done, and set it to do my mom's name too. Well while it's running the names, I figure I'll work on the other half of the tea wallet so when it's done I can just push them together and voila! Embroidered tea wallets for me and my mom. 

I get all the pockets on both, got it all trimmed up to be the same size, smushed them together, sew them together, go to turn and realize I sewed the fucking pockets on to the back of the inside piece of BOTH and now I either turn them and leave the inside white with a faint pattern, or rip ALL the damn seams out and start the whole bitch again! I'm going to take a break, drink a beer, and come back! I just needed to vent!

I fixed them both. I got through about 3/4 of the 2nd one and ran out of bobbin thread, so I guess that means it's time for my 2nd beer!
