Our sewing machines and equipment serve us well if we just give them a little attention.
I was unimpressed when my overlocker would not work properly last evening but when I tried to recall the last time I gave it a good clean and changed the needles I just could not remember.
This machine is not used often but I do want it to work when I am ready so tonight it is having a lovely clean up. I use a pressure can of air to clean away the dust and make sure there are no threads lingering.
Changing the needles is not a lot of fun but neither is re-threading the machine so sharp needles are a necessity.
I find the re-threading very challenging so I have treated myself to a baileys and milk in the hope that a more relaxed attitude will help.
It has been another warm day (38degrees here) and I have my eldest grandson Ben here with me. He is content to watch some DVDs with the air conditioning going.
At present he is watching Thor on blue ray with 3d glasses on.
We only have one pair of these glasses and this is the first time they have been used. He assures me they are really good. The sound is amazing - I am not sure I need to see it all though.
I can hear a little rain on the roof just now and the sunset is a fiery red.
Tomorrow should be cooler and after babysitting the twins we will go out for a meal and to the beach I think.
