    well past time to change my needle. it's making that annoying sound, nagging me to give it a rest. it's slightly bent so i have to thread it the hard way instead of with the auto-threader thingie. but i'm determined to get another 1,000 miles out of it. don't ask me why. i have plenty more. just being stubborn, i guess.

    sewing along. machine hits a pin. wham! blam! it's jammed into the bobbin area.

    mumble, grumble, expletives deleted. out come the tools. take a deep breath and dig the durned thing out.

    i'll be hornswaggled. the machine is even running more quietly than it was before. the needle has stopped making it's "change me NOW" noise. and i can thread it with the thingie. and my tension has improved.

    it pays to let strangers into traffice during rush hour. even if there is a giant truck snorting at your bumper trying to bully you into move along.

    :-P

    LOL! Just the other day my 19yo dd was telling me about this website she had found about southern sayings. She said she was stocking up on them for when she spends the summer in Pennsylvania. So she was telling me all the ones she had read there that she knew from hearing me say....then I told her "Well I'll be hornswaggled!" I thought she was gonna bust a gut laughing! She was driving and had to pull over. Said she had never heard that one before was I sure it was southern? Puh-leeze! I grew up hearing my Grannie say it! So it was funny coming here and seeing you say that! I'm so glad your machine is ok too!

    CHANGE THAT NEEDLE NOW!!!! It is just as important to change needles regularily as it it to clean the lint out. :D
