..... QUILTING FOREVER, HOUSEWORK WHENEVER .....

Needle in motion...

Since I had not made any progress on my project I've chosen for my Feb finish, it was time to dive in on it! All was mostly going well, when....
I had to stop to untangle my invisible thread. Not once, not twice, but three times... My second time using it. Boy you have to watch that! 8-(
Thus I gave up for today, and went to make supper, eat, and crash on the couch to watch TV...

I'm not doing very creative quilting on it... not so confident as of yet...

Tomorrow is another day, another try... I am tied to finishing it! 8-)

Remember I said my hubby had 2 weeks off, well, it turned out being 1 week, which I was kind of peeved at since we were to switch my rooms over... It will have to wait till the weekend after the quilt retreat... 3 sleeps! 8-)

Till tomorrow...

I hope you have better luck tomorrow with the machine quilting and invisible thread. Will you bring it to the retreat??

I'm a little chicken about invisible thread...used it once for a small project and did have some struggles. Good luck with your work on it today. Let us know how it goes.

I have never had luck with invisible thread. Does it unwind off the needle when you don't want it to?

Hi Myra, thanks for stopping by with encouraging words during my absence. Hurray for getting some quilting done. I've gotta hurry with my Feb. projects also! Your quilt as you go is awesome, Hugs, Finn

I tried using the invisible thread once. Now I remember why I didn't want to use it again.....Hope your sewing goes easier for you on your next try.

Don't give up . . . it can (hopefully!) only get better. The only problems I've had with the invisible thread is when I have it feeding from the top vertical spool holder, less trouble when it is placed on the horizontal one (doesn't wrap around the holder)bye
. I also read somewhere to reduce the tension a bit. Such a cool machine though! - Marlene
