Well, there are times that you just have to walk away from something, and tonight has been that time!
Two days, three needles, more unpicking than I care to mention, and more thread breakages than I can hope to remember later, my Christmas Challenge piece is not completed
I have no idea what the heck is going wrong there, but go wrong it most certainly has - it's only a small piece, for goodness sake, how hard can it be to manoeuvre it under the machine smoothly? (Ans: today, impossible). Here's a bit of the stippling that has made the cut - and that's far less even than I'd like.
I guess a cooling off period for both me and the machine, and a good oiling for at least one of us will do no harm, I'm sure. Here is my non-red-or-green-not-bigger-than-96" entry for the QAL, nonetheless.
Despite me wanting to throw (a) the runner and (b) the machine across the damn room tonight, I have had a fabulous time on our Quiltalong weekends this year! Oh yes!
I've had a hoot on hostess duty, and had so much fun when it's been Joanna at the helm! Thanks to her, to QuiltSue, of course for the wacky Challenge - and everyone who has been along for the ride!
