And I mean it…
Firstly I have had big trouble with my neck…
fire and thunder pain and headaches.. and have slept lousy during these weeks…and the cold that I still have…
So I have avoided to start to quilt my Winter White Schnibble.. but being alone yesterday morning.. I just had to have a go…
So I happily started… And it worked just fine… and then suddenly nothing at all worked.. thread breakages… hop stitches… and you name it…
It worked like magic the last time.. with the swirls… remember… :o)
BUT OH NO NOT THIS TIME..
Bad day for me and the Machine.. or what??
Well I dont know…
Too little sleep.. and pain.. I unplugged the machine..and almost kicked on it..;o))
And went to bed crying!!!!
But did I feel any better… no no at all..
I tried and I tried all kind of tips and tricks..
And I have to say a BIG THANKYOU to
She had the best advice…
She told me
“Set it aside…..done with that project….have machine looked at.
GO to fabric stash…start cutting for another project! Yes… I said that….put your mind
on something else!!!”
And so I did..
I went outside and stitched on my GJ (Gardeners Journal) blocks….
and watched Viktor hitting the tennis ball on his ball plank…:o)
(Maybe I should have played some tennis too..lol.. )
Thanks for the advice Mary!!!
Because later that day I remembered.. I had an old machine in my cupboard..
My old Bernina.. not sewn on for the last 7 years… :o)
And guess what…
It quilts like a charm!!! :o))
Who could know I had a treasure just in front of my eyes…
well a little hidden.. but there..:o)
Never ever have I tried to quilt freehand on this machine…
Ok.. it have its issues.. needle up and a really really slow start… and bang it starts.. so you have to be ready when the needle goes down..:o))
But best of all..
I am quilting again.. and the Pfaff.. have to go and see a doctor..
or maybe it was just bad thread or whatever it could be…
Will plug her in later today..and test…
after I have finished the quilting
on my Winter White Schnibble… :o)
It goes slow.. because I only sit ten minutes and quilt..
and up and do something else..!!
Ohh.. that was a long post with no pictures…
So here you go… :o)
See you later!!!
