So, in a miracle to beat all miracles. . . well in my world anyway, Carlos found my missing sewing machine part under the bed when he reorganizing stuff. He didn't know what it was and honestly though it was like a piece of our toilet or something, but I gave him tons of kisses for finding it. :) I was actually able to finish JUST before I went back to work. So now I'm all excited for the next break and to try making some more.
