Okay, so I've been cleaning....and cleaning...and cleaning. And finding that my house never stays clean. May I just say that having a new dog is a lot like having a baby/toddler? The constant need for attention, the frequency with which pottying is done, and the unbelievable way that the house just STAYS filthy no matter what I do? Sigh...Okay, so I vented a little.
I started quilting Alye's quilt today and I found out a little something. I had bought a second machine about a year ago and was sort of unhappy with it because, though it had a few more bells and whistles than my Kenmore, it was more finicky and I never liked the tension. I, therefore, continued to use my Kenmore for most projects. Well, for Alye's quilt I was experimenting with Aurifil thread so I thought I would dust off the 'new' machine and give it a whirl for this. It's still not perfect but I think a lot of the issue was that it liked better thread. It's working SOOO much better with the better thread!
