Even though the girl at the sewing machine repair place said it would be 3 to 4 weeks before my machine would be looked at, fixer man #2 came in over the weekend and completed it only 6 days after I dropped it off. I decided that I’d better hurry up and finish the robots while the warranty was still in effect, so I spent hours and hours stitching on Tuesday. Unfortunately, I did something like bumping the hoop on the first robot, so the eyes stitched out on its forehead. I realized that I was going to have to rip out the large area of dense embroidery and start over because everything was out of alignment. It took a few hours, but I did it. I was worried about ruining the curtains and was really nervous when it came time to stitch the robot over again. Was something wrong with the machine or was it operator error? The area where the robot had been was looking worse for wear, but somehow the new robot stitched perfectly right in the same place and covered up all the weakened fabric. It was a robot miracle. I hemmed the curtains last night and now am finished with that long project.
I’ll try to get a picture of them after she hangs them up in her kitchen.
