Did the second lot of Santa tea Towels this arvo. Lots of problems, thread breaking, putting the wrong bobbin in the Husqvarna and not realising for over an inch worth of the red! AAAAAGGGGGHHHHH! So out with the scalpel and c a r e f u l l y cut the front and back and pulled it all out! Then I had to redo it and try and find approximately where I pulled it out! Anyway - both machines played up at aroound the same place, so I don't know if it was coincidence or a design fault. These are the fat Santas as opposed to yesterday's which were skinny! Love Chris

Thanks Carolyn, no he didn't have any on top. I hope I didn't offend you, it just looked like the raccoon had something on his face. Sorry, love Chris

Yikes - I have had similar problems - once with a golf shirt that was not fixable!! Not fun at all. I guess we have to take a deep breath and remember all the designs that didn't cause us problems!! Love these on the dark blue!! Breath Chris - they look great!! Hugs, Laura*

I'm glad you didn't give up. They are so cute. I was ripping out a project on Wednesday. I agree with you, I do not give up.
