And I have the Spools that I need to get together, but I can do that on Tuesday at the Red Stick.
I made two journals from the BQ Quilt blocks that were leftover from the two quilts for Dan and Amber (this is a good picture of one of the quilts) were made into journal covers. A very very very very easy method. More later when I have a full battery in my camera to take pictures of the process. One block is so large that it made two books! And I gave one to Swooze when we met. I will have to do a post on how to do it, so simple! Maybe an informal class at the Red Stick!
I am fighting with the tension on the longarm. I think I got that straight and the stitch regulator is not working. I spent 2 hours working on the tension issue and finally got that figured out, but not before I #$%@*@ up the tension so that I needed to reset it. Aughhhh!
You want to know what the problem was?
I bought a pantograph that was 11 inches wide. My shelf is not, it is more like 8 inches wide. And the thread trailed along the overhang. So now I have to cut all my panto rolls down to whatever my shelf width is. I guess it makes sense, that added a "tension" to the thread as it rolled through the machine. But I think it was stupid of the machine to react that way.
It could have said, hey, trim the panto and I will work for you. Instead it threw a hissy fit and set out to give me ulcers. Stupid machine............
