I was having a blast quilting my wallhanging
when it happened.
Well I knew this day would come. Really, I knew it but hoped it wouldn't.
My lovely Babylock Machine is at the repair shop.
These computerized machines are not like those
old er ... vintage metal ones - there's more to go wrong with these. All those bells and doodads, which I admit I just love. My connector from the foot pedal to the machine broke. So - not the worse thing in the world. I can still run it from the buttons on the machine but doing free motion quilting (which requires two hands) and having to use a hand to start, stop and adjust the speed is pretty darn tricky.
So off the the repair shop it went today. I should be getting it back tomorrow - so how can I complain. Right?
Wrong! Wah Wah Wah!! I want to quilt on my wallhanging.
I think my quilting swirls look a little childish. However, I feel very confident that I'll improve over time. So in the meanwhile, I'm going to just love my work.
Linda - who will be reading! LOL
