My first disaster

Ok, so my machine choked up while stitching the design on Amy's bag, but after a little prayer prompted by my 3 year old daughter, the machine continuted to stitch and it didn't mess up the design. Just now I experienced my first REAL disaster:

I was putting a cute little applique design on an 18 month shirt for a gift. It's a "g" shape, and then a name would stitch out over it. Since the machine was nearing the end of the satin stitch around the "g", I leaned down to get a small piece of water-soluble stabilizer to put in place before it started stitching the letters. When I sat back up, I discovered that part of the shirt had flopped onto the TOP of the embroidery foot and had been stitched THROUGH the foot ONTO the shirt. Absolutely no way to salvage this mess... I had to cut the shirt apart to retrieve my foot!
Sigh... I spent a lot of time coming up with this design -- I hope I can buy another shirt just like this one!
