My sewing machine and I have never been very good friends. Let’s just say I have never had the patience to be around her very long. It’s really not her fault either – it’s mine. Like I said, lack of patience.
I have had numerous problems with her; from threading the bobbin, getting the correct stitch length, and on occasion, sewing a straight line.
How did I mend the fences so I could make curtains for the Pink Paradise? I dusted her off and whispered sweet nothings to her – that’s how.
She was a little hesitant about our renewed friendship because she spit her bobbin out at me a few times, ate my material a couple of times, and ran me off course a time or two. Eventually, persistence paid off and we got re-acquainted. With a little work (okay, more than a little) I managed to make the curtains I needed for the camper – 10 panels in all.
Call it a miracle because it truly is; we are friends again!
