On My Desk Wednesday

Not a very good picture...picnik has given me a bit of a helping hand, but it's not great. Ah, well - this is what is on my desk right now. A cushion I have made as a gift for my parents' ruby wedding anniversary. The stitching isn't great - my machine is playing up a little. It keeps looping and failing to pick up the lower thread unless I only stitch in one direction. Why???!! I've fiddled and faffed, but I can't solve it. Could be a slight problem for making new jewellery....eek! Any ideas? I've tried changing thread and needles, adjusting tensions, all knobs (you know what I mean!) set to zero as the feed dogs are lowered.....no joy. Oh dear!

Hop over to kootoyoo's blog for more desk culture.

I love reds so i love your picture :)

If nothing works with your machine get it serviced, there could be stray threads caught up in the mechanisims somewhere, it's usually what happens with mine.

I've thought of that, Emma- it's clean and thread free...and brand new, as I took the other back and complained! Thanks though xx

Maybe there is some kind of fault with the model you have? try google-ing it and see if anything comes up :)
