In fact, 90 nine patches.
Since I was still in the Midwinter Reds mood after my failed attempt with this machine yesterday, I decided to go ahead, on Thelma's suggestion, and start the Nantucket pattern by Minick & Simpson.
Everyone knows Minick & Simpson is one of my favorite fabric and pattern designers. Both of them. Minick AND Simpson!
Just wanted to make that perfectly clear!
Anyway, I was happy as a pig in mud (need to quit saying that) last night and today playing with this fabric!
About the 750, I went to the Upland Sew yesterday to pick up the table insert. I took a sample of the problems I was having. Rosalie was so sweet to sit down with me for an hour to go over a few things. One problem is I had hooked an extra thingy when I threaded the machine. We went over the bobbin winding and insertion, and I had done that correctly. This probably sounds silly since I was using a 440 for seven or eight years, but I didn't know how to use the needle threader. (The first time I tried to use it on the 440, the blasted thing fell off and it never was important enough for me to address.)
Now I need to cut more fabric to continue on with this pattern. I was so anxious to sew yesterday that I only cut what I needed for the 9Ps.
Yes, my back and neck are hurting, but sometimes you have to pay to play!
Penny ..... when I got her I wasn't sewing much. She just doesn't know how to act or what to do when I'm at the machine, and I was getting really tired really fast of her whining.
I thought back to how good Daisy was when I was sewing. Then I remembered that I had a bed for her in the corner between the cutting table and the machine. So I took an old bed and put it back there with her favorite quilt right out of the dryer. She hopped in there and stayed until it was time to chase the sunbeams up the staircase. Problem solved! I guess I need to get her a new bed since that one is about worn out! And get her a new favorite quilt that I don't like as much as that one! LOL.
Two happy puppies here today at LA Quilter!
