I spent some time Sunday evening working on Grand Illusion. I had just a few more short strips to sew together when I ran out of bobbin thread. I pulled out my trusty little bobbin saver for a new bobbin only to find all my gray ones are now empty. Since I was sewing with black fabric on the bottom, I just finished up with a black bobbin.
Now I'm ready to quit for the night. I have to remember to wind bobbins before I start sewing again. I left myself a little reminder. It was time for a new needle and some oil and the dust bunnies need to find their selves a new home. I think this whole process took 5 minutes and I am set to sew for a few more hours.
I love that short stubby screwdriver but I forgot it's too fat to fit the screws of the throat plate. The little pink makeup brush is the best for holding on to those dust bunnies. Of course I don't remember when I changed the needle last but I knew it was time for a new one.
A clean machine is a happy machine and that means I can sew, sew, sew!
