Sorry about not posting twice this past week was personal a busy one.The annual salad luncheon and bake sale at church. Monday baking for it,Tuesday selling at it, Wednesday weeding the one flower bed. It finally warmed up and was dry at the same time! picked up a few planets on Thursday and then Friday..... the 13th!
I'm not a superstitious person, but I was not having a good day with the Singer! In fact my mother's machine and I have been having a Love Hate relationship the last week or so.
For those of you who don't sew, sewing machines can be temperamental, well mine seem to be. I had this one in to the repair shop this past fall and he was all fixed up. ( I burnt the motor out on the foot pedal. Ooops!) Well I sew with cone thread. Thread comes on a cone and I have been using this to thread the bobbins as well. Here's where temperamental comes in to play. If the bobbin isn't threaded right you get funny stitches, and well....
My brain wasn't work for a few days trying to figure this out and I messed with every trouble shooting Idea ... except that one. Sometimes the most obvious is not the first thing you think. Well after figuring out , (phone call to sister) I had to readjust tensions back and...I'm still having problem. Today I found out why. Missing screw! So Saturday, will be spent at some time sifting through the Hubby's collection to see if he has one that size in it, other wise I will be off to the sewing machine repair man for one.
In the mean time I did a little bit on my machine ( I have several) And this is just a peak at what I've been thing about this past month.
