1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My First Quilt--Finally finished! on: September 06, 2011 10:55:14 AM
Finally done!  This was my very first quilt project; it is all hand done except for the binding.  I made it for my niece--I started it as soon as I learned that my brother was expecting, and she's three months old now so this quilt has been gestating just about as long as she has  Grin



Excuse the not-so-great camera-phone pics, I was about to gift it and thought 'huh, maybe I should take pictures!'  The colors are warmer in real life. 



She seemed pretty happy with it (as much as a 3 month old can be:  she looked at all the patterns and grabbed at it and made cute baby faces), and I'm really proud of how it turned out!

2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / My Poor Emdeko... :( on: June 21, 2009 05:33:50 PM
My sweet old emdeko zig zag is flipping out--I was sewing this afternoon, everything was going fine when all of a sudden the machine got WAY louder and slower (even with pedal to the metal, etc). I noticed that the top thread in the stitches got loose (like the tension suddenly got off or something).

 I cracked her open and cleaned and oiled it (I followed the manual instructions and everything!), and while the action runs much smoother when I run it with my hand, when I plug it in and run it with the foot pedal it is still loud and slow.  Anyway, it is an old machine, and I'm not sure how well maintained it had been before I got it a couple of months ago (The lady I got it from just used it as a table, though according to her the lady that she got the machine from a few years back took good care of it).  I have been sewing with it before without incident, even sewing tougher jobs with many layers.

I don't know what is up!  What can I do?  

I don't know much about the machine itself, so here is a link to a photo of it (don't mind the mess, it is all opened up  Tongue )
