    Well thats what they said! I read that when learning to use a sewing machine on a frame that a glass of red wine would help. For some reason the tension(mine) is at about an 8 and I hold my breath. So what the heck I'll give it a try, and you know they were right! Those wonky stitches dont look so bad after all! So when I post a picture of the quilt I'm working on you all have a little nip and those wonky stitches will look great!

    I'm a WIMP. If I had a nip of a-n-y wine you'd find me sleeping face down at my sewing machine. I'm a "Sugar Free Red Bull" kinda gal....LOL

    I don't like the taste of alcohol drinks of any kind, but, I do try to stay relaxed and that seems to help. Do what works for you, just relax.
