*glares* My sewing machine is acting up: dropping stitches, sometimes several in a row. Changing the needle, changing the tension and changing the orientation of the thread in the bobbin has had no effect. :( Gah. I don't REALLY want to sew this by hand, although I fully intented to baste it together by hand (velvet being what it is.)
No, it's not new fabric, its been sitting waiting for me to work on it for a couple years now.
