Thank goodness my machine and I are playing well together today. For the past few days she's been a bit ornery. Breaking threads. Caught threads. You name it, threads. I've cleaned her out (multiple times), put in new needles (multiple times), and even resorted to sweet talking. She finally listened, because today she's humming along. I like it when we play well together.
I think what put her in a good mood was my telling her that she'd get to take a vacation at the sewing machine shop for much needed maintenance and relaxation as soon as she finishes quilting this quilt.
I have another machine I can use while she on holiday.
