Big learning curve!

Today I have been wrestling with this fabric covered cord and boy have I wrestled!!! It was really hard to get under the walking foot of the machine and then to get it to sew!
somehow I don't think it is supposed to look like this! Lol!! My fault as I forgot to put the walking foot down! Duh! Too many things to think of at once while wrestling!!

Ok, looks a little messy but we are at least sewing! Phew!!

OOPS!! Every now and then the zig zag stops and I get straight sewing and a hole! Mmmmmm...not sure what I am doing wrong here! Will go back later and hand sew the gap closed....
Got to 9 inches for the base...looks messy but at least this is the inside...now I have run out of cotton, so have to make a decision....go with black or gray????  I think gray is the better choice, maybe??? Well I am now geared up for FNWF to get more of this done!! You can see other Friday night sewers over at Cheryll's place
Happy sewing!
