April Showers… wait. May Showers.


My poor yard is needing a good mowing. I seem to only get bits done at a time… Now I have a few different heights trying to mow it for the last three weeks! I think I am going to get a goat or 3 just to keep it down!

I love to mow, I never have minded the sticky grass, dust and heat while I am mowing. Mind you when it gets colder in the fall its Ranger Rabbits job!  I just wish I could get all 4 acres done at once! I had to stop last night as I needed a mower with 4×4 as I kept sliding and getting stuck, thinking I would get my parents bigger mower to finish up. I hear rain as soon as I wake up and its was UGH my yard still did not finish mowing it dang rain.

Also my garden as been worked up but I don’t have the 1st plant in it.. I am going to have to break the top crust I am sure when and if I get to a garden. I hate not to have one but at this point I wonder if it is worth trying. 


My Pfaff…


I want to really love her, yet I find my self very angry when I set down to sew. There is always something that is not right and I have to fiddle with. It all seems bobbin issues. I don’t know why but that is what my gut is telling me.

It makes a brief grinding sound after I power it on and when I start taking the first few stitches, then nothing until then I turn it off and back on. Then I really don’t dig the drop in bobbin, I have always used a bobbin case.

Yesterday I kept getting a motor locked issues wait until this goes away to sew type thing, But It never would pick up and sew. I think Ok I will take it back to my Pfaff Dealer and let her look, but 1st I run it by mom.. yeah mom who knows everything about machines in my eyes. Of course it sews … so I did not take it in but drove out and the lady keeps telling me I am threading it wrong. That I need to make sure my presser food is up.. Yea lady I know this I DO know a little about machines, and they are NOT like my Embroidery machine. I am no closer to getting to why its being funky

I have falling back in love with my Singer Featherweight in the mean time other then it wanting to unthread, its doing everything I need. Since I have been on a quilting kick.
