I colored up this newly acquired adorable Whipper Snapper image with my Prisma pencils and OMS. I accented areas around the image with a Sakura Stardust pen. The pink cardstock, ribbon, and buttons are Hibiscus Burst from PTI. The adorable pink and green polkadot paper is from Crate Paper.
I started stitching around my mats and wanted to continue around my image and also the background but my machine wouldn't have it. I couldn't sew more than 3 stitches on my Janome Sew Mini and the whole thing would snarl up. I kept taking out the bobbin and reloading it...checking the tension...couldn't find anything wrong with it. It just isn't pulling the thread smoothly and the spool above jerks and the thread bunches up. I've re-read the manual and reviewed the tutorials on GinaK's blog showing how to thread the machine, but I just don't know what's wrong. Anyone have any ideas, tips, a sledge hammer?
Have a great day!
