She never sits in my lap, yesterday she did.
I turned off the machine. I didn't clean up, I just left the mess and walked away. I tried to make homemade ravioli... well that didn't work either.
This morning I went in the sewing room, cleaned it up and started over. This time I starched my fabric, used a different stabilizer, and all is well once again.

Here is what I learned. Mistakes are ok. That's how we learn what to do.
I used the wrong stabilizer, it wasn't stiff enough for this project. It wasn't my machine it was me.
It's always good to do a sample first. Then you learn what to do and what not to do.
Stay tuned. I will finish this basket.
