Today we stayed late so that I could continue work on my projects. I upgraded my DPN needle roll by adding a tie closure, ironed a stack of quilt pieces, and attempted to repair our comforter. The only problem with the comforter is that some of the top-stitching has come undone, but the comforter is so thick it barely fits under the presser foot and then when I tried to stitch, the quilt wouldn't advance. After the third time of having the thread jam, I gave up. I'm going to stitch it by hand some other day.
By the time I cleaned up my mess and was ready to leave, it was after 8:00. And I still wanted to stop at JoAnn Fabrics to take my sewing machine in for repair. We arrived ten minutes before the store closed -- only to learn that the folks who run the Viking Sewing Shop (located inside JoAnn Fabrics) had left already. The Viking center closes an hour earlier than the rest of the store. *sigh* We'll try again tomorrow.
