Yesterday it just seemed like I wasn't supposed to be in the sewing
room. I was going to quickly sew up another mini--in fall colors
this time--and then head right in to the long-arm.
Errands took up most of my morning.
The weekend left my sewing room a mess--sadly, not all from sewing.
My pieces just wouldn't align; I ripped more than I care to mention.
The machine's tension kept messing up--a first for this machine.*
I cut my binding twice when trimming it up.
Is it actually Friday the 13th!?!?
My "couple of hours" fun project didn't even get done--only
the top. But I finished it this morning and it's on the wall now.
I know I said I wasn't going to make more for a while but
after this weekend's garden work, I needed a down day...
and I wanted to work with the colors that were outside the window.
It's rare that I go in my sewing room and just make
whatever comes to my mind--too rare.
I need to do more of that--maybe the issues
were there to slow me down on purpose.
If so, lesson learned.
Next I want to make a more vibrant version.
I'm just enjoying this fall so much it's hard to stay inside.
Happy FALL quilting!

You know how you can hear a problem with your machine
before you see it? I heard it but was just serviced and I clean
it often so I didn't trust my instinct. I sure did not expect
to find a large amount of lint under the bobbin case but
really, I should've known. I guess it was the batting in those
little banners I made? Well, it's all good now.
Lint. It's a four-letter word.
