So what kind of a weekend is every having? All week long, have been looking forward to spending today in my sewing room. Am working on a bow tie table topper and wanted to make a spring valance for the living room. "Sir Chugs Alot" my sewing machine wanted no part of it. Almost immediately ran out of bobbin thread. Wound another and from that point on the problems multiplied. Spent 35-45 minutes threading and re-threading, taking the bobbin mechanism out and cleaning (nothing there to clean). Readjusted the tension. Finally seemed alright and then the machine kept coming un-threaded. Eventually after my 4th soaker hot flash, I just walked away. Perhaps the machine sensed the estrogen melt down? Anyhow, if I want that much aggravation, I can go into work! Would someone please remind me again of why we chose to quilt?!
