Just not in the mood, I guess, but I learned something anyway
I have done no sewing this week. I did learn something, however. I needed more thread to quilt the last two NICU quilts and I was having a problem with the top thread showing on the bottom of the quilt sandwich, even at a pretty high tension. I was puzzled, since my machine (Viking Platinum) had just had a tune-up a month or so ago. I took my test sample to the sewing shop and they pointed out to me that the top thread was a lighter weight than the bottom thread and it was pulling down on it. I never would have thought about that. I have a lot of bobbins wound but they seem to wander away from their parents very easily (I have the cat to thank for that) and I was looking at the color not the weight. Live and learn! I vow that I will wind a new bobbin from now on, and find a way to keep them from wandering off. Attention to detail is very important!
