Fighting my machine

Hi friends!
Gloomy day!
My machine had fits this weeks.   I don't know if i had the wrong needle for quilting in it or what.
I took it apart and i was still clean from the last cleaning.
It broke 3 needles in a row and broke top thread to.
It made a mess on the back side of my quilt i was working on.
The first thing that happened was my light on my machine  blowed when i turned on my machine, see the lantern sitting close by.
I have ordered another one but it will take a few days for it to get here.
I have picked out that bottom thread for two days
Now my camera want download pictures.
Not my day!.
Maybe i will have better luck tomorrow.
Hugs friends.
Quilt Happy

Sounds like you have a gremlin! He's been at my house a few times....and he's not welcome back! Good luck getting him to leave.

Oooh, i hate it when things all go wrong like that! Did you re-thread it??--I keep having to read my manual to do the threading right--I think my brain is "brain dead!!" I cleaned my Helga and set her up for quilting this afternoon--it took me TWO hours! i am not machine savvy at all...but at least there were no extra parts left over hahaha...hugs and hope your machine woes go away...Julierose

I have days like that when every piece of machinery or computer I touch gives me fits. I think it's just trying to tell me to take a break.

It sounds like a good day to crawl back into bed to me!!! said...

Oh sweetie I am sorry I have had those days too! For weeks on end sometimes it seems. Hope things get better soon.
