    I've been off due to neck and shoulder knotted up stiffer than a board. Chiropractor helped some but the stupid pills (strong muscle relaxer and pain killer have also helped.) Also worked on Rebeckah, my 301, some to get her running right. I'm thinking all of the issue(s) were carbon based unit issues and not the machine. She sews beautifully now and I didn't do anything to her! Go figure.

    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    Original. I've seen them a few times before. I really like them.

    If that 301 was black, I'd pay the postage to have it! I "need" one to go with the mocha one I have.

    yeah, while waiting for another bra pattern to arrive in mail, I'm sewing pants.

    How's the quilting project? After my pants are finished, I'll be starting a quilt.

    My All Machines quilt is under way. With over 30 machines I've decided to make a quilt from scrap denim and use each and every machine to do it with.

    So my squares are going to be 6.5", however much of the scraps only allow for 3.5" pieces. Doing the math, 4 x 3.5 = 6.5". I've sewed the 3.5" squares into 6.5" squares with the Singer 3810, 99K, and Minnesota ~B~ so far.
    (Minerva, the Minnesota ~B~ gave me the least trouble of all three. The other two seem to be cranky about the tension. Minerva don't care, she just sews up a storm.)
    Got to cut more squares now, I'm out.

    I think next machine up will be more squares with the 99K, after that ....... to be determined.

    How did the first bra attempt turn out?

    Well, the body of the quilt is done. I am now piecing the borders!

    Here is a really good deal and I love the cabinets that say the name of the machine! http://sacramento.craigslist.org/atq/3052343175.html
