    Oh it really messes up a routine to have your sewing machine go down! I’ve still been struggling with my walking foot. The first generic foot I bought had a roller on it that got stuck and wore a flat spot on it and only a week and a half after I bought it! That meant it stopped feeding properly. I figured it was just a “stuff happens” kind of thing, so I ordered a second generic foot. That one ended up having a flat spring inside of it break after 10 days. I was so frustrated, and told Brad that this is what I get for trying to go cheap! I called Kens Sewing Center today (where I bought my Brother PQ1500S) and asked them where their walking foot comes from. They it’s an authentic Brother part and comes directly from the factory. So I ended up buying that today. Having to try and readjust my sewing without using the evenfeed foot has been interesting! I messaged my friend who had bought one of the generic feet as well, and she said she is having no problems. So either I got two lemons in a row, or it’s really a case of You Get What You Pay For. My husband is stumped as he says he can see absolutely no difference in the feet whatsoever, but after me having two generics break in under two weeks, he agreed that I definitely needed to pay the over double price for a guaranteed factory foot. If only for my peace of mine when sewing!

    Anyway, sorry for the lengthy comment. I guess I just wanted to say I understand that when the machine is down or things aren’t working properly it definitely puts a kink in things. But you and Sue are coming along nicely despite all of that! YAY!!

    Nice to have a back up machine when the main one complains! The ripple block looks great although I can imagine it was challenging.

    Hello Roseanne, I have missed you and your posts! You and Sue are keeping just as busy as bees and all of your projects are looking fabulous! I look forward to seeing and reading each and every post about your projects! With everything going on here, I just did not get anything posted. But boy did I get a bunch done this month. LOL. Still finishing up a few tea pots. Have a great day! Sending lots of hugs and smiles!!!

  5. You look like you are taking the machine issue in stride, and keeping busy too. That bee block is cute!

  6. Congrats on the finish and look forward to seeing it in all its glory! I love the little embroidery machine that was pressed into service. I always wanted one, but really have no need for it (I could make one up). I will (in another year or so) upgrade my Bernina….maybe I’ll get one that does everything! I hope to get my act together to get back on the OMG wagon – I did mine but missed signing up!

  7. Glad you weren’t tortured too much by using your other machine!

  8. All your blocks look perfectly pieced and pretty to boot! Congrats on getting your OMG completed. I missed both deadlines last month, as in forgot about them…where is my head! You guys are so organized. And of course I adore those little umbrellas.

Please leave a reply - we would love to hear from you!
