  1. Hi Roseanne. I’m sure we all can feel your pain with having to wait to get Ellie back. One of my quilting buddies and I were talking yesterday. She had called to get one of her machines serviced. Our favourite technician has no openings for a machine to be taken in until January! He is still feeling the Covid Crunch poor man. We are all looking forward to seeing Addison’s ballerina finished and your fun topper, but we all can wait to see what fun you come up with in the meantime 😉

    How frustrating to have all those skipped stitches after the problems with the painter’s tape. I’m glad you decided to get Ellie a tune-up and can use Lili for your leader/ender project if you feel so inclined.

  3. Chrisknits says:

    Bummer! Put you will get that machine back and running better than new! At least your sewing doesn’t have to completely stop.

  4. Sharon says:

    How frustrating! But you know when it’s time to take the machine in for a service day! Here’s hoping it will be back sooner than you think. Now nice that you have a back-up machine!

  5. I hope the service fixes your long arm issues. Good luck!

  6. Well, that sounds frustrating! I hope it doesn’t take too long to fix your machine. It’s nice to have a backup – hope that will help you get a little something done!

  7. Gail Sheppard says:

    Oh dear!!! I hope Ellie is feeling better SOON!!! … so that YOU can also feel better, too. Quilting withdrawal is NO fun at all!!!
    Take care!

  8. Oh wow those skipped stitches are big. When I took my machine in earlier this month, I sat down and made a list of what I could do, like tidying, cutting for another quilt, a bit of applique etc. And then… I got out my back up machine and like yourself – made do!

  9. Kathleen McCormick says:

    Oh, rats!!! Ellie is acting up at just the wrong time. I am very glad you have a machine you can do some leaders and enders on, but boy oh boy that does put a cramp in one’s sewing. Lets home the spa stay is a short one!

  10. Rochelle Summers says:

    Oh, NO! I feel your pain. I have a Featherweight I use when I go to sewing dates but it is NOT my Baby Lock. No self threader, no thread cutter, no automatic foot lift…..But it does sew. Perhaps a spa vacation would sound good to you too? Visiting with friends must have been so much fun. Like someone else said, I guess you could prep for the next several projects. Good luck….and I recommend a good book!

  11. Wendy Tuma says:

    Oh bummer about Eliza, but I’m sure she will be ready to roll after her time in the sewing spa 🙂 Meanwhile, you’ll get used to Lilli and then have to readjust back to Eliza. It makes life interesting and keeps us on our toes! Glad you were able to spend time with friends and see their new home – that’s always a good way to cheer up.

  12. Judy K Blauer says:

    WTH! I’m sure you will be pleased to get Ellie back from her spa visit! Isn’t it weird how we can forget about how to work an older less used machine? At least you can do leaders and Enders for a bit. Maybe rewinding a bobbin will “come back to you” after you use it awhile! Or maybe there is an online manual? Good Luck! Fingers crossed that Ellie returns soon!

    Awww Roseanne, I’m sorry about Ellie. Ballerina quilt is being very obstinate! You still have lots of time (she said confidently) for your Christmas topper. Sounds like you had a nice relaxing visit with your friends. Good luck with Lili and yes it’s always nice not to have to crawl on the floor. Every time I do that I have to make sure there is something (or someone) close by to pull me up!
    Thanks for linking to To Do Tuesday! 😀

  14. Oh wow, so sorry, Roseanne! I hope Ellie gets back home and working better than ever sooner than later! That leader-ender project sounds like the way to go, or some prep for the next creation you have in mind!! Try to have a good week anyway!

  15. Get well Ellie! I know the pain of having your favorite machine serviced!! You are making good lemonade from a lemon situation. Hope you have a safe and happy week! What is with this Ballerina quilt and quilting challenges? First the tape and now this. Best of luck Tiny Dancer!!!

  16. I feel for ya! I am still waiting for Betty Boop to come home! 🙂 Meantime…I do have some tedious leaves to hand stitch. It is very slow going…almost a non existent activity, but my fairy godmother doesn’t seem to want to do it, either, so I am going to have to force myself. 🙂
