It must be July here because it is hot! This kind of summer weather makes me really appreciate my basement sewing room because it is the coolest spot in our otherwise un-air conditioned house. It's my refuge.
My Pfaff went in for a spa treatment on Tuesday afternoon, so I took that time to clean off the sewing table. Amazingly, the LQS where I took it (and where I also bought it) gave me same day service! I really liked that! I was expecting to be without my sewing machine for a week.
She's really purring now!
How often do you take the bobbin cover off your machine and clean all the lint and crud out from under there? I've done that twice in the year and a half I've owned this machine. The sewing machine guy suggested doing it after every project. Since I sew every day, but don't finish a project all that often, what do you think? Should I clean under the bobbin once a week? Once a month?
Of course I did have to sew something right away, so I worked on my blue and yellow scrap slab project. I thought yellow thread would be a fun contrast with the dark blue batiks! (It's Aurifil Lemon.)
A couple photos from our hike in the national park the other day -
Beautiful and green, lots of sun, and no one on the trail but Mike and me.
Hiking along Mill Creek - I love the sound of the water!
First tomato of the season - a cherry tomato - yummy! And I've gotten several more since. Still eating those green beans, too.
Have you ever read Make Modern Magazine? I was lucky to win a subscription to it for participating in Sandra's Centred QAL at mmmquilts. Lots of inspiration and good information in here!
Thank you, Sandra and Make Modern!
Thanks for visiting today! Hope you're having a great week!
