Well, I jinxed myself, but in a good way. Yesterday I said I wasn’t going to be able to finish making the 22 journals I was in the process of making in time for the show I’m doing tomorrow, so I was going to cut myself some slack. But that may just have changed – all because of a huge issue I’m going to confess to: I HATE changing thread in my sewing machine, especially when it involves changing the bobbin too! And so, because of this, I may end up finishing half of the journals I’m making in time for tomorrow. Because I’m working in 2 different palettes, I use a slightly different thread for top-stitching all the parts, and I decided to just make one color palette at a time to save me changing thread like…6 extra times.
Although in this case it’s good, because having half of the journals done is better than none – but how bizarre is this? It seriously can’t take me more than 30 seconds to switch it out, a minute if I have to wind a new bobbin. Am I the only person with this bizarre hatred for changing thread? Or do you do it too?
I’m headed back to the sweatshop to see if I can get these done in time for all these shows I’ve gotta do…have a great weekend all!
