But this time they’re not of the paper pieced variety. Today they’re part of the catching up I am trying to do with my Vice Versa BOM. These are my April blocks. Yes, I know, I’m a titch behind…
I’ve had everything cut for several weeks, and I even assembled my HSTs. A couple of weeks ago I trimmed up the HSTs and laid these both out, then packed them up, and ‘lost’ one whole block’s worth of fabric. I looked and looked, and then wondered if I dreamt it, so I cut (again) for the 2nd block. Well, wouldn’t you know that when I was sewing these together I found the HSTs that I had already done for the A block? I swear, I’m losing my mind!
In other news, Bunny is acting up AGAIN and really needs to go back to rehab. I was having issues a few weeks ago, but the tech at the LQS didn’t find anything wrong. I used it for a few hours last Sunday on my Lucky Stars blocks, and I did something that screwed her up again. I’ll skip all the boring details, but I’ll just say that the hook in the bobbin area (I don’t know all these technical terms) had a big gouge in it, and that was causing me issues, so $120 later, I’m back in business…..kinda.
I’m still having issues with it not feeding the fabric through correctly. I first noticed it when I’d sew over a particularly bulky seam. I’d get over the seam just fine, then it would take 6 or so more stitches, and stop advancing and it would just stitch in place. I tried to explain it to the tech but when I had my machine with her, it didn’t happen. I even tried to recreate it. Today after it happened several times, I had The Blue One record it. It’s now even doing it when I start out fresh with two perfectly flat pieces of fabric. And because of it, I’m getting little puckers in the fabric once it finally does feed through. So I gave up sewing for today, and Bunny is going back to Rehab tomorrow. So frustrating!!!

Bernina peeps – what’s happening???
