I think they might be crocodile tears, as my Granny used to call them. Big tears! Took the Janome machine to the shop. Turns out that my senior moment damaged the control board, so it needs to be replaced. The technician is trying to get it covered under the warranty, which is five years. Since my machine is only four years old, he is hopeful that it will be covered. So now we play the waiting game. I got the sock monkey quilt tops for the twin babies put together, but would rather quilt them on the Janome machine. I finished some more of the two zipper, double pocket wristlets and added them to the etsy store. And I embroidered two baby bibs that had been ordered. It was my first time to work with a name, and I figured it out. And in the process discovered that my machine can do so much more than I thought.
Have a safe and happy Fourth of July holiday.
