The table Runner: I have a little visitor to show you...he was at my kitchen window a couple of days ago...so elegant to watch. He looks big here...lol.
The routine is to link up with Lee and Monika..will you join me in visiting the other blogs to see what wonderful work they have for us this week???? Now linking up to Pat at Colour Me Quilty.
Now I have a question.....does anyone know what would cause my FM foot to start acting up? Last week all of a sudden; I broke 4 needles...one right after the other. My machine said it was a thread tangle that stopped the motor...so I looked it over and finished what I was doing...very slowly. Yesterday I sat down to quilt; thinking nothing was wrong. Low and behold it stopped quickly again, but I was on the ball this time, and saved the needle in time by raising it. Then I got checking more things out. There was a hole punched in the toe of the FM foot!!!! Apparently that is what broke my needles. But why all of a sudden was it hitting. I continued trying to sew; watching what was going on....things line up ok until I bring my bottom thread up; then the open toe shifts ahead and to my right. Needle hitting!! So; how did I break my open toe?????
Why does it all of a sudden not line up??? If anyone has had this happen; could you tell me about it....what I may have done. I'm thinking if there was a thread tangle; it may have pulled the needle back to hit the foot. But why stay like that??? hmmmmmmmm...
PS.....I found the problem!! After wondering and pondering; I took a closer look at the foot. It is cracked in the back just befind where it hooks on to the machine....darn!!! At least I know now,eh. Get a new foot..lol
