Frustration Control

I just had a major frustration moment with sewing machine and fabric. What is it with this huge gap between sewing-theory and sewing-reality?!?

So… as I did not want to end up throwing my sewing machine out of the window and as I started being cranky with not only me but also my environment (sorry!), I decided to put an end to my sewing day.
