Why, Why, Why!

Two weeks ago, I decided to try my hand at an easy Burda WOF dress 4-2008-116. I looked hi and lo for fusible bias tape. After consulting Cidell she recommended Design Plus fusible bias tape. Thanks Cidell! I found that Fabric.com sold it. I purchased a couple package and figure I was ready to make my muslin to make this simple dress. Would you know something would happen it seems to be the way things are going in my sewing room. The Burda 3 in 1 tracing that I had since the 90s fell and the chalk marker wheel became stuck. I tried to move it and noticed that the serrated edges on the wheel was scraping the muslin fabric, not good. Yesterday I got the little wheel to move, but it still scrapes the fabric, so I thought I try and replace the chalk wheel with another hoping that the marker will fit into the special slot that was for the original chalk marker. It didn't work. So today, I ordered the Clover dual tracing wheel. I am so glad Cidell and Cindy posted about this gadget.
