My quilt tops needing to be quilted are piling up…two charity quilts have been added to the already huge pile! It’s NOW or never!
I just KNEW PFanny (my Pffaf 1200 midarm quilting machine) would be moody, cranky and troublesome…I JUST KNEW IT!! She has sat and sulked all Winter(and Spring!)…PFanny knew we were off basking in the warm Californian sun while she was sitting at home sulking!
Yes, I knew PFanny would be a handful so when I FINALLY fired her up to do Betty’s latest charity quilt, I wasn’t surprised that she only went about twelve inches before she started skipping stitches and breaking thread! NOOOOOoooooo….
I have done the usual…changed needles (three times), oiled her (maybe she was REALLY thirsty?), levelled her (she is dead on!), threaded and rethread…and did it again and again and again…, then changed thread…and bobbins! She was mad…really mad!! She has been uncooperative for TWO long days now…
Last night I took her apart and dusted every nook and cranny…and YES I did find some bunnies living where bunnies shouldn’t be!! Fingers are crossed that my PFanny will purr today…and if not…well let’s just say more BLUE words are going to fly!
My PFanny can be such a pain in the…fanny!
Have a Fun Friday…and happy Stitching!~P:o}}
