1. You measure progress by the stack of empty pepsi cans
2. You begin looking for excuses to cut something out so you don't have to sew any longer, but are still technically "making progress"
3. You amuse yourself by betting what will run out first, the top thread or the bobbin.
4. Re-threading the machine is "fun"
5. You kidnap your sister, and throw on a movie to bribe her into cutting out hexagons for you for you....claiming it as a "sisterly bonding experience."
