Alas, no pictures for you today.
At least no pictures of what I've accomplished on my barn project.
I spent all day Saturday trying to wrestle my machine into submission using invisible thread and I'm pretty sure there was a massive black cloud just outside our apartment building. 'nuff said (because I know you're getting sick of hearing me bitch about my machine!).
So....today I decided I would do massive amounts of samples using all different stitch lengths, tensions and thread combinations.
Yeah - okay - move right along. There's nothing to see here. At least nothing that's worth looking at.
Suffice to say - invisible thread is NOT going to happen on this machine, at least not anytime soon (see below). The machine will happily free motion (well, as happy as this machine gets!) with regular thread on both top and bottom but invisible thread on the top is not happening.
So....now I'm throwing myself at YOUR mercy. What brand of invisible thread do you use? And where can I get it in Canada?
- HERE is a really pretty crocheted afghan pattern.
- I know this is a commercial site but they elicited an 'awwww' from me, so I thought you might enjoy seeing them too....go HERE.
- There's a cute St. Patrick's Day themed pincushion tutorial HERE.
