I'm feeling much better today. I took my machine back to the store. I have not taken money back yet but can if I want. I am waiting until after a workshop being given on another machine by the Pfaff rep which is in less than two weeks. I think I've also decided to make the one hour trip to a Janome dealer this week with an assortment of my threads in tow. I'm going to see how they work. I do own the mini Jem Gold and like it.
Also, this morning, I vacuumed, did some wash, made muffins, and delivered some used clothing while I was out.
This afternoon, I sat down to my trusty machine and free motion quilted shells on a current project. How relaxing when it works. There were no broken threads the whole time, just smooth stitching.
Now for some hand stitching time. I've some bindings to stitch down.
