I had hoped to be posting a finished picture of this project by now, but sadly, my HQ which is normally a rock-solid workhorse started getting very quirky over the weekend. I finally gave up and took her in for an appointment this morning with the dealer who sold her to me in 2008. I was told she had a timing issue and of course she got a good cleaning too. While she was there, I had an open toe foot installed. Now I will be able to switch back forth between a ruler foot and one that gives me improved visibility. Maybe we are ready to roll and get this UFO finished.
My current handwork project continues to grow. It even has a corner! I pushed so hard on it last week, though, that my right hand is feeling a little achy. So, I’ve forced myself to give it a rest for a few days. I recently had another birthday and my body is sending increasingly clear messages that I need to pay attention to these warning signs.
We’ve had a string of warm days…highs in the low 80s…and I captured this picture of a very uncooperative model earlier this week. It appears, however, that this morning’s cold front has finally brought winter to Central Texas.
