I’ve been working on a sampler quilt. My first. Actually, this is my second attempt at the same one, and it’s going better than the first time. The first time, I quit after the 7th block or so. Second time around, I have 21 blocks done so far. But yesterday I experienced a roadblock… I’m sewing these blocks on my mother’s antique Singer Featherweight sewing machine, and yesterday the machine just all of a sudden locked up. I examined all the parts with a fine-tooth comb and couldn’t find the problem and since I value this little machine so much, I was fighting down all sorts of feelings of stress, anxiety, frustration, even failure and despair. I had to walk away from the thing – with all of its pieces and parts strewn about like a sewing machine junk yard. Later that day when I had settled down enough to listen, the Holy Spirit prompted me to Google my problem! I typed in “bobbin case lockup in Singer Featherweight” and voila! Carmen from the Featherweight Shop made a video that showed me exactly what to do. And now I’m back in business with mom’s sewing machine and my sampler quilt project. Praise God!
