Never Fails

So, I'm working on a denim version of Burda May 2009 Vest, without the sleeves, and I'm at the topstitching stage.

Because the jeans topstitching thread I'm using is so bulky, I do it with the jeans thread in the bobbin and topstitch from the wrong side (it is an adventure in faith, let me tell you!).

So, anyway, my bobbin ran out last night. And I couldn't find the spool of jeans thread to refill it. That is, it wasn't with the other decorative thread and I didn't have a clue where else to look...it'd been quite a while since I'd last used it.

But, not to worry, I bought 2 mini-cones of jeans thread (they were on sale), so I knew I could use the second one. However, I didn't want to pull the shrink wrap off of it and have another loose thread tail in the sewing room if I could help it. But I was *really* tired last night and called it quits before I hunted for the opened cone.

Today I went in and sort of half-heartedly looked around for the missing thread cone. But I didn't see it and I decided my sewing time is too precious to use it hunting for something when I could just open the other cone, load up my bobbin and go to it.

So I pulled the shrink-wrap off the other cone, pulled the little sticky label off the bottom to free up the loose end and then looked around for the empty bobbin.

And immediately found the first cone of jeans thread sitting on my sewing table nestled right up behind the sewing machine.

Does this happen to anyone else, or am I the only one with such a scattered brain? ;)


  1. I love it my friend!!! Happens to me all the time!!! The good news is that you found it!

  2. Nope, never happens to me! Just kidding. Sometimes I think my entire life is just one big search for what I've lost. (That'll preach)

  3. Glad to know I'm im good company. I can't count the number of times I've search high and low for something and found it immediately after replacing it !

  4. Yep. Never fails, things like this happen all the time!

  5. Oh, these things happen to me all of the time! If it's not one thing, it's another!

  6. lol, there's a reason I have so much white ribbing - it always seems to be only the white ribbing that hides....
