Sneek Peek At My Next Project

I have had some issues with my quilting machine lately, just hasn't done the job right. I am no mechanic so that job falls to my hubby. Well, he works hard and so when he comes home he really doesn't want to mess with any machine problems I might have. Well, I have been so frustrated that I finally decided to line up a quilter to send my quilts to since my machine couldn't do the job right. Well, needless to say last evening the tools came out, and in no time my machine was working like new.

I had put in one of my quilts that has been sitting on a shelf for at least five years or so in my machine, didn't want to use a customer quilt for this test drive, and it is really looking great!
No tiny loops on the back so far and the stitches are looking really good. I guess a little threatening to pay someone else finally did the trick. I will have to remember this in the future. :D

Kind of like a car. Take it in to get it fixed and they say "Can't duplicate problem" Glad you are back up and running. Quilt looks interesting. Looking forward to seeing the finished project.

Nothing like the thought of paying to get something done that you could do, that sure gets it working..
Your quilting is lovely...

HA! I love your closing statement! How true, how true.

Glad to see you back up-n-running. Not much could be worse than feeling the urge and ambition to quilt, only to be shut-down due to technical difficulties.

Glad it is working well again. It is so frustrating when it doesn't!
