Morning all, hoping you are well. The fellers are being male this morning, and I’m hiding from all the testosterone in the house. It’s a muggy bugger again, and soon enough the rains will stop, maybe.
Meanwhile, I had an epiphany. I always wondered why, when my sewing machine only came with 3 bobbins, when I got old sewing kits from my scrounging friend that there were hundreds of partial bobbins of thread in them.
I finally figured it out. I’m an idgit. I went an purchased extra bobbins for all of the machines this month. At the beginning of a sewing project, it’s easier to fill 6-8 bobbins with the thread I’m using, and go, than to stop, removed my work from the machine and do a bobbin.
Since I use mostly just white thread, and the consequences be damned, I’m cool with this. Damn it. Damn it. Damn it. Why didn’t I think of it sooner? Why didn’t I learn this in home ec over 30 years ago?
I have no idea. I’m pretty sure that we were issued one bobbin, one machine needle, and etc… and had to make do. NEVER AGAIN! Bobbins are dirt cheap. I can afford to buy extras! Woot woot woot!
Give me all the bobbins!
Hugs my friends, have a good day. -L
