I became distracted. I have two sets of cabinet drawers. One set came from a school cabinet. The other set, I believe, actually came from the treadle cabinet that I refurbished a couple of years ago. I painted the top green but left the drawers off. I decided that I can never really sell it because it is just too rough. So I decided to keep it. Don't tell Steven. Well, hell, he will find out anyway, when I ask for his help moving it back up to the sewing loft. We just did a switcheroo with a different stand (7 drawers) a month ago.
I attached the school drawers to the cabinet top and fastened the back onto the top as well. That dang piece has been kicking around here for too long. I was either going to use it or turn it into firewood.
(Please note: Frannie rarely tolerates Wrigley in such close proximity.)
I know it looks a little funky, but at least that cabinet back piece is where it belongs. I may, one day, paint the drawers green too. They need some gluing, but for now, are functional. The 201 in the background is the one I re-homed yesterday. ("Oh good, only 99 to go, commented the DH). I changed some of its tension parts and had to test the stitch again. Gotta say, changing those parts helped. The stitch is much nicer now.
The 201D makes a lovely stitch, too. Isn't that what it's all about? That is why I have so much trouble. I love them all. As I was threading it I realized that I had not cleaned the tension assy. It is a bit different from the common Singer assy. I don't think that I will take it apart. I may just run a dollar bill between the discs. It sews wonderfully well, so maybe I won't need to clean it at all. Oh hell, yes I will. You know I will.
I also fixed the bobbin winder problem. I found a slightly larger BW tire. DUH.
By two o'clock I was ready for lunch and some sewing. It is cold enough to require heat in the sewing loft. I had a fire in the shop and one in the house. Three's a charm? I don't think so. I took my design wall, covered it with a sheet and schlepped it into the house. I placed it right next to my 201-2 and set to work sewing those hexagons together.
Point to point.
