Burning the midnight oil

Grrr, sometimes the machine just seems to be in a non-cooperative mood, and something quick and simple isn't. New needle, changed thread, checked tension. Still can't sew in a nice even line. A couple of days ago, everything went perfectly. Think the machine doesn't like this material, a little too thick for it? Furnishing fabric from Ikea, originally with batting in the middle to make the coasters described in Last Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts, by Joelle Hoverson. Leaving out the batting helped a bit, so perhaps it was just too thick for my machine to manage. Hmmm, tomorrows another day.
