Guess What I'm Doing
After trying everything, I concluded that this FL sewing machine has problems. My walking foot on my MI machine worked so well so I didn't anticipate any problems here. I finally abandoned all tries at various types of quilting and got the tension and stitch back to a regular one for sewing. I am hand quilting! Yup, I really am. After all this is a experimenting/learning quilt. I am using two strands of
embroidery floss and it is working well. I decided to just cross hatch it. So far so good.
Top pic is nativity set I bought here in FL a few years ago. It is a plate with raised figures which sets behind other figures. See second pic. It has a great 3D feel to it.
Bottom pic is Kipper checking things out through my front window this morning. Guess all was well as he is now napping on the couch. Notice my swivel chair where I sit and look out too. I took the screen out of this window so we can see better, well, as long as I keep the nose prints cleaned off. I have six windows like this across the front of my mobile home so can open the rest with screens. You can also see the quilt with the safety pins. It is hanging off my cutting/sewing table which is really a dining room table.
Weather cooler so that yesterday I made a pizza. I hate to turn on the oven in the hot weather. It is only to get up to 70 today and cloudy so I'm planning on making soup. Anyone want to come for lunch?
