And finishing up my McTavishing sampler and getting ready for our last McTavishing Monday post coming up this Monday.
What will the design for the Free Motion Monday link party be? I haven't quite decided. You still have time to chime in with a design idea in the comments.
Speaking of comments: I've traded computers with my hubby so I no longer need to share a computer with the kids. But in the process, I'm pretty sure I have lost some recent emails. So if I was supposed to get back to you, I'm sorry. Also, I might not reply to as many comments while I'm getting everything set up. We had to move a bunch of files and programs around across different operating systems.
I was doing a video last week of my McTavishing, when my Janome 6600 began making chewing sounds in the bobbin case.
After checking the bobbin, I found that the thread had begun coming unwound from the other end and both threads were getting pulled into the stitches being formed. This caused the bobbin to stop turning. A good bobbin gone bad.
I have found that a nearly empty bobbin can give you problems, so if you are at a stopping point and you see you're nearly out of thread, go ahead and start with a full bobbin.
