I love our Virtual Friday Night Sew Ins……gets me motivated to get something done….and I must confess…..I started a little early…..all day Friday, in fact!!!!
I started with my four Wonky Log Cabins for Michele’s Sandy Quilt Block Drive….
followed by some designing and then working on a surprise gift for our Guild’s Christmas swap for our end of year luncheon next weekend…not near finished yet, so I can show the beginnings without revealing too much!!!…
and then I followed with some work on my SSCS ‘secret squirrel sewing’ for Chookyblue’s swap and got lots done, until it got to the quilting of the borders……. my machine decided it didn’t like to fmq, so it decided to mess with my head and miss stitches here there and everywhere……see where it’s missed???
I’ve tried different thread, top and bottom, new needles, rethreading both top and bobbin (a dozen or more times!!!), pulling the thing apart and cleaning it for lint and stray threads (even though I only had it serviced last week …..…….. gggrrrrrr) and repeated this process over and over again! Any ideas gratefully received!
I think it’s back to the sewing machine doctor again tomorrow for this ‘beast’. I only hope his magic wand is working.
So I ended up working on my sanity saver….
My ‘A long time ago in Bethlehem’ stitchalong stitchery.
Still a way to go on this one as this is block 7 (half finished) and there’s a few more left to do before the stitcheries are put together.
I certainly hope I can get my SSCS swap gift finished for this week…and for that matter, my guild gift too!!! AAArgghh!!!! frustrating…. must be a male sewing machine…it has a mind of it’s own!!!! Wish me luck!
Sugary hugs :O)
