I know it hasn't been a good year - so far I have survived - maybe just! Sewing machine trouble - I wonder why? Machine problems - I tinkered, re-threaded top and bottom, dismantled and cleaned, new needle. I really wanted to finish the Windows and Frames Quilt so a few little tears in my current state of mind. When I put my foot down, sometimes it just looked at me and did nothing, other times it took off like a rocket winding thread galore and clanking away!
I borrowed Julia's machine - couldn't get the 1/4" accurate with my previous blocks. I gave up thinking to myself do a Scarlett and think about it tomorrow. Picked my machine this morning (still a bit of a challenge with my weak little wings!) and started to put the cords in again - now this really wasn't funny! - bare broken wires - the copper ones, see them. Don't strange things happen in life - I must have been very wicked in my past one, lol!
I won't speculate on what could have caused the damage, not nice to think of what the outcome could have been - I do have a little idea! I am so desperate to get this quilt finish to send it to Karen to be quilted! Pop over to her site to see her unique, amazing wholecloth!
Just a little bit of joy in this Post - pretty delicate white flowers on one of our succulents, David's (son), so that's nice! I haven't been Posting or Commenting a great deal - hopefully it will all come together again - however, I have done a lot of Browsing, and that is always such a thrill
