Tuesday was my first day back at work, I’m only working Tuesdays for the next few months. We have very good parental leave in Sweden, I stopped working a month before my due date & LL is 13 months old now.
Saturday was sewing day, I kicked my hubby & baby out of the house so I could sew without distractions.
I picked up my sewing machines on Wednesday, they were supposed to be fixed/serviced, but they both still had issues!!! I haven’t used this place before & I can say I was not happy with the quality of the service. On my lovely Pfaff sewing machine, the tension as totally screwed, medium tension was like high tension. So I got out some tools & opened her up myself, to have a look, worked out that they had put the tension dial on wrong & fixed it myself :)
Then we have my lovely Elna overlock, 14 years old, very well used, she was squeaking when I left her in. Still squeaking now, but not so much, apparently they replaced some parts but I don’t know what, but while sewing, the stitches jumped, the needle put huge holes in my tissue jersey & then to make everything worse, a new scratching noise!
By this point I was quite pissed off! I opened her up too & found the source of the scratching noise, I don’t know what the bit is called, but it looked new & it’s screws were loose. After fixing this & with a new needle, my lovely Elna was good as new again, except for the occasional squeaking. So now I can get my sew on again :D
