And she bit the dust.

My Elna, that is.  I spent some money last year getting her fixed up and she did run but when I tried to sew last night I just got nothing.  Well, the light came on.  I don't think I'll do anything more to her, she will be lovely studio decor or a big paperweight! Also last night, I was trying to quilt some of Fairies all around and the stitching just kept getting tiny.  I tried stitch adjustments and rethreading, everything I could think of.  Quit and went to bed.  Tonight I took the walking foot off and everything is just fine.  Guess I won't be using that foot any longer!

I am now officially behind on this weeks stitching.  Kolby's coming for the day tomorrow though so I may get a little caught up while he's here.

I did finish the big section of the collection at the trails museum though!  We'll label and give them their permanent homes as soon as the director decides on the design for the label.  Really feeling accomplished.

Now, for whatever reason, I'm really sleepy-have been all day, so I'm off to bed.

What a shame! Can you use it for piecing and regular sewing? Good result on the museum collection material. Sleep tight. Don't let the bed bugs bite!
