(kids, cover your eyes I’m bringing out the big guns)
I QUIT. I GIVE UP. I HAVE FUCKING HAD IT.
1. Apparently I can not rotary cut to save my life. I dull blades like it’s going out of style. I’ve finally gotten to the point where I don’t ruin entire yards of fabric. But it’s little comfort.
2. I cannot sew a 1/4″ seam to save my life either. And I’ve bought the quarter inch foot and other things that make it “easy”. Bullshit, go eat a bowl of dicks.
3. I HATE MY SEWING MACHINE! Really, I give up. I spent $400 dollars on a Viking. Brand new from a dealer. I took the sewing class. I’ve followed EVERY SINGLE RULE to the letter. And the piece of shit isn’t working right. AGAIN. I’ve sewn maybe 10 projects on it. It’s already been to the shop once. It worked correctly ONCE after that visit. I get to face the fact that I’ve been ripped off $400. I could’ve bought and worn out 3 junk Wal-Mart machines for that price. And I wouldn’t have run through 3 of them by this point.
4. All the money I’ve spent on classes has also apparently been a waste. Ok, except Needle Turn. But how the hell am I going to finish any of that stuff? (see above)
What brought all this on? Well, obviously it’s been adding up – but I just “assembled” (and I’m using that term loosely) my first star block for OTR. 6-1/2″ square is far beyond what I’m capable of apparently. And I spent over an hour being careful and doing my best and then pulling it out and re-doing when that wasn’t good enough. And for my efforts I have a wonky as all hell 6-1/4″ block.
So Mom… she’s getting something else for Christmas. Seriously fuck it, I do not need this kind of agravation.
