Don't know where the day went today, after our usual morning walk, I read the paper, blog watched and then gave my work room a much needed tidy up.  There was a mass of purple, grey and green fabric on the cutting table from my Grandmother's Choice block making frenzy of the last few days.

I then decided that it would be a good idea to give Silver a bit of a clean, which took a little while as I had to read the instruction manual for each step.  It was surprising how much fluff there was after only 3 weeks, once that was done I made this weeks Grandmother's Choice block.


#26 - Ladies Wreath

With only 3 pieces of fabric to attach I encountered a tension problem with Silver, so I rethreaded (is that a word) both the machine and the bobbin, but it still didn't fix it so I went and had a cup of tea.  Suitable refreshed I then consulted the manual and delved into the depths of the machine, then changed the bobbin and rethreaded again, problem solved - whew.  I finished off the block, then took photos of them all,  uploaded them to  my Flickr page and then added them to the Grandmother's Choice Flickr group, surprisingly I actually remembered how to do this as the last time I uploaded to Flickr was the beginning of December :)

  5. I am always amazed when I have tension problems that at times all I have to do is take the thread off and the bobbin out and then put them back in place and all is well - glad it worked for you.
