That sounds awfully dramatic, doesn't it?
I had the cable folks here today and the maid service showed up at the same time. I mean, there was nowhere I could sit that I wasn't in somebody's way.
Anyway, before the maids left, I asked them if they could lift the 750 out of the box in the garage and put it on the dining room table. I figured I could play with it a bit while recuperating. I'm going leave the 440 in the Horn table at least until I finish Brrrrr Park.
It took me about 45 minutes to figure out how to remove the bobbin and then reload it. Then another 15 minutes or so to figure out how to thread it. I'm going to practice that bobbin thing several times before I sit down to seriously stitch.
This machine is so big compared to the 440. The dining room table is not an ideal height - I know that - but I had to keep standing up to see the back of the machine.
So one hour today -- I stitched straight stitches on some muslin to get the oil dispersed as was recommended to me.
I'm totally worn out now.
