On Thursday, last week I picked up my machine and brought it home. I had to wait a couple of days since I had pretty much torn apart my sewing room right after I took my machine in, made a major change, but then decided that I didn't want do anymore work in there until I got my machine back.
So, this past Saturday I spent a couple of hours rearranging stuff in my sewing room and got things all set up just to find out that my machine was acting fruity. There was something wrong with the stitches and it was soooo not good. I was so disappointed...didn't want to deal with it or anything. So I let it sit overnight. The next day I asked one of the ladies at church to see if she had any ideas of what might be happening with my machine and showed her what I had produced. After a minute or so she suggested that I change out the needle and try it again.
OH MY GOODNESS!!!
That was the problem. NOW everything is working just fine. I was able to put together one small tote and finished up a project that I had cut out before I sent my machine in. Last night I stitched together another tote and now I'm on a roll!
One of the ladies at church had her baby a couple of weeks ago and I finally decided to get her a gift (it's amazing how holding a baby can do that to a person). This morning I was thinking that instead of buying a gift bag or wrapping up everything into a box, why not make a tote bag? I found a couple of really cute fabrics at Hancock during my lunch break...
|CUTE, CUTE, CUTE!|
