So thank you all for your helpful comments, which despite Shane's (DH) smart ass remark did help. I had cleaned out the bobbin area but I hadn't thought to try cleaning/oiling the upper part. For whatever reason it seems to have helped. She's still going to go in on Monday for a tune-up/general cleaning and see if anything pops up.
I found a hilarious song that summed up how I felt today.
Yes, most of my life has some song to go with it.
I got my Schnibble Along cut out. I am going with Essence and if it isn't current enough, oh well.I'll have a nice Autumn quilt, or little baby quilt on the ready.
Next up is to get it put together! I think I'll trust my machine to straight stitch right now but I don't think I'm going to free motion until it gets checked out even though she's sounding pretty much normal. I've also slowed down the speed because I admit to having a lead foot. Guess it's a good thing I'm not driving much right now lol.
And honey since you're reading my blog now could you take out the trash? Thanks!
