The temperature dropped to minus 11°F this morning, and in anticipation of the cold, I finally resumed work on my kaleidoscope quilt. It’s perfect for cold weather because most of it sits in my lap while I quilt.
I ran into many obstacles yesterday. I hate to give my sewing machine human qualities (too lazy to figure out how to spell anthro…morphise), but I think when it is left alone for an extended time she gets angry. And takes it out on me.
When you start playing around with bobbin tension, you know you are in trouble. I couldn’t get the needle in right, kept misthreading it and after a full day, had quilted one long seam. But with all the attention and adjustments yesterday, today she’s purring like a kitten.
Shirley decided she didn’t want to wait for the finished quilt.
