Clickerty~Clack...

While whirring away on my nice sewing machine last night... I nearly finished my beautiful robot fabric project. A super cute bag. Yes, how funky is it going to be???
But then this happened:

And I had no more of this exact colour either. Bummer.
I had got this far:

I had nearly finshed the handles and had sewed on blue ribbon to them, I was just sewing on the last handle and finishing up sewing on the gorgeous robot trim to the band around the top... when... whirrrrrrrrrrrr. I knew that was my bobbin thread gone. So I refill my bobbin and in doing so, my reel emptied of cotton.

Just as this funky bag was about to be use-able and finished! Luckily I have a super dooper friend who happens to be going into town today and might just manage to collect me two reels of this cotton so I can finish it up tomorrow night.

That looks like its gonna be a cool bag! Shame you ran out of thread though - I've done that before! [I always buy the next size of reel up from that size to avoid that prob LOL.
