So I decided that I was stressing way too much about this tension thing and decided to give myself the weekend off. Straight after work today I jumped on the machine, did a bit more fiddling with the tension and have a sample that's not perfect but I'm happy for it to go in the workbook.If anything the top tension is too tight as I've got a fair bit of fabric puckering even though this was stitched in the hoop, but as least I got to the end of the sample without the horrendous problems I was having before.
It's time to put the free motion away for a while and I'm going back to chapter six for some play with prairie points. I have family coming to stay for a week in 2 weeks time so I want to be a good way through chapter six before then as I'll have to pack my machine away for the week. Anyway able to magic me up an extra few hours in the day? :)
