It was a holiday.... not supposed to work on holidays..... daughter took me to go to her house for the day so I wouldn't be tempted to work. Lots of food. Lots of people. Great fun. They had a nice little kickball game going until the ball landed in the tree. Someone climbed the tree to get it and the game resumed. Glad I went instead of continuing to work.
I had to repeatedly tell myself that working on a holiday weekend is not right. I semi-retired so I wouldn't be working myself to death anymore. Although I was very tempted to stay on the quilting machine, I took some time to do other things like making new pot holders and place mats. Quilt type fabric of course. Started organizing my household manager binder and cooked some things for the freezer.
Yesterday I went back to work like everyone else. Eee gads! For some reason I kept getting long stretches of skipped stitches. Like 4 or 5 inches of skipped stitches. Most of the day was spent cleaning, oiling, and adjusting my gammill before Ladybug arrived. I believe I have the problem worked out so today I'll work on getting the next quilt stabilized. There was a lot of hidden lint built up around the bobbin shaft, where the bobbin race moves. Once I cleaned this out the machine was fine.
