My machine has been acting up a little. Nothing big. It threw thread at me once but I was making it go through home dec cotton + fleece + quilt cotton. I would have thrown thread too.
I keep promising it "Just one more project and I'll take you to get serviced."
That was five projects ago.
Today it got revenge.
Poor 1/4" foot. I love you so.
I still don't know exactly how it happened. Me and my-still-unnamed-machine had been merrily sewing all morning. We finished quilting a wall hanging. We put on some binding.
Then when going to make a scrap vomit block before farmer's wife blocks...it hiccuped. And that black piece of my foot got bent down into the machine.
I don't trust myself enough to do Farmer Wife blocks without that foot. All those tiny little pieces that have to be just right.
Looks like my machine gets a break to go to the repair shop after all. And I get to place an order for a new foot.
You win this round machine.
I hope you know that we'll be making blocks double-time when you get back to still try and finish the FW top in Oct.
