The Sun Has Got His Hat On.......
Today I awoke to a strange phenomenon.
High in a bright blue, not grey, sky was a fiery ball.
It was giving a lot of light.
It was giving out warmth.
It was making me feel good.
Rumour has it that it is called SUN, and it could be here to stay for a few days.
Which is quite a good thing really as I need to do some things outdoors whilst the opportunity arises.
Actually, I wanted to finish some machine quilting, but I am without sewing machine at the moment. Yesterday I broke a needle. Now, I have a new machine and I absolutely love it. Love, love, love it. Except for one thing. Inserting a new needle. I just find it so, so fiddly. There just isn't enough room around the doings to hold the needle and tighten the screw. I haven't got particularly large hands, but there just doesn't seem to be any room. Well, I was fiddling about trying to insert the new needle when I dropped it and it fell right down the hole, through the bobbin case and into the innermost workings where you can't get at it. As it's all electronic and computerised I don't dare try to fiddle with it, which means I have to take it in to my local dealer to fix, and he won't be open until Tuesday.
Still, I've learnt one thing. Next time I change a needle I'll make sure I leave some fabric on the needle plate to catch any falling needles.
