I have to confess. I am so ashamed. What have I done you ask? It’s more like what have I not done. This afternoon I was sewing away merrily on my Convergence quilt, see below, when my trusty machine began to make horrendous noises, and nasty loose stitches. I didnt know what was wrong, thought it might be the bobbin cover which seemed loose. I stopped and decided to take a couple of pics of the quilt so far. That done, I pulled out the manual for my faithful friend. I turned to the maintenance section………well, have you caught on yet. I saw the instructions for cleaning and oiling. I opened the needle plate and was horrified to find lint the size and colour of a small fieldmouse. Boy was I ashamed. I admit I didnt do the maintenance/cleaning bit in all the years I have had her. Almost 8. Sooooo… she got lots of tlc, a needle change, and bless her she is sewing like a dream. What a bad stitcher am I.
Thank you for listening /reading my confession. I have learned my lesson….really I have.
