Always check your bobbin!

LESSON OF THE DAY:

Always check your bobbin, especially when doing lacework on the embroidery machine.

If you have a low-end machine like mine, you definitely don’t want to be taking the hoop off to change the bobbin in the middle of lace work.  (I’m assuming here that higher end machines don’t have this problem).  But if you do take the hoop off and put it back on this can happen:

On this one I made sure to put in a fresh full bobbin before I started.

Of course this pattern doesn’t take a full bobbin, so I’m wasting some thread, but I’m justifying it by claiming that the stabilizer (heavy weight) and my wasted time are much more valuable than a bit of thread.

Besides, I can use the thread left over in a freeform lace scarf?  Right?
