Thanks for your patience with my minor blog makeover. This may be a work in progress! You'll notice that I changed my blog name, though for now the URL remains unchanged.
On Wednesday I showed the stack of fabrics for the backing of the Fussy Fairytales quilt I'm making for my little friend Eva. Now I can show you a partial photo of the completed backing.
I'm feeling like I may need to take my machine in for a service soon. It's been almost a year since I bought it, and have used it a LOT, so it's probably about time for a service but still - I don't look forward to being without my machine! I'm experiencing skipped stitches, which started out sometimes when sewing multiple thick layers (like when making the passport wallets), but yesterday I was noticing it a few times when simply seaming two layers of quilting cotton together. Seems a bit random, like every once in a while it doesn't manage to pick up the bobbin thread. Hmmmm. My saleslady thinks it may be a fine timing issue. So I'm curious, do you take your machine in for service? How often? Only when there's an issue?
