I was on the home stretch. That last 6 inches of topstitching and the needle breaks. Uhggg. My poor machine has really been working overtime this last week as I was finishing up a birthday gift, so I'm sure it was just looking for an opportunity to wind down. Thankfully I was just finishing up a project for the home and not the gift! By the way, I can't wait to share the "gift" with you as I'm pretty proud of it. But, as I still need to get it off in the mail, I can't share until I know its safe and sound in the hands of my little neice.
