Short post

I've been busy piecing the starry night quilt on the Kenmore Rotary machine. 

This is working great, but it's still a loud machine.  This weekend, I'm going to try something.  I have a Bernina 730 that was a home ec class machine.  It made a loud growling noise and I struggled with it and worked on it and had given up and was about to send it back to Goodwill when I just happened to take out the carbon brushes and wipe them off and put them back in again.  And, it worked. 

So, with nothing to lose, I'm going to try that on this machine.  Who knows.  They're like the easiest part to replace on a machine, so it's a 15 minute investment, right?

These little mysteries are why I love owning and tinkering with these vintage machines. 

Everybody have a great Friday.  I'm already planning the things I'd like to do.  I'm always too ambitious tho.
