Good Morning to you! WE had the nicest warm day yesterday-our temp actually got up into the 50's, which turned all the snow on the road to slush. Last night we got the strongest winds and this morning much of the snow is melted or blown away.
I had a good class yesterday, but shortly after I got there my sewing machine started having problems-which led to me being very frustrated! Thankfully, the owner of the shop let me us hers; however the whole situation made it difficult for me to really absorb one area that I needed. Hopefully with the instruction sheet and the teacher's phone number, I'll get it down. Now I'll take a better look at my machine and probably have to take it into the shop for repairs-oh boy; thankfully I have the granddaughters sewing machine I can use. Who ever would have thought that quilters would need more than one machine-I'm sure our grandmothers didn't have that luxury.
I hope you have an enjoyable day today.
Postscript: I just took my machine apart, cleaned it thoroughly, oiled it and adjust my needle-viola, it is now sewing perfectly! Saved me a bunch on taking it to the shop. The teacher yesterday says she oils her machine every time she changes bobbins-it's been awhile since I oiled it, but I'll be more diligent now. I also know you should change your needle every month or so, if you are sewing daily.
Now, I can relax and sew this afternoon.
