Rock & Roll!
I started quilting on "Rubric" last night but Big J was being a Divo as he will. It was getting late and I was tired and cranky myself so I left the machine and spend some time puttering and cleaning around his highness. First thing this morning, I went to the Janome Yahoo group site and spent some time getting wisdom around the moodiness of the Janome 6500, needles, metallic threads and other useful stuff. Thank you ROOBY! Then I went through all the rituals - new needle, cleaning, oiling, checking the air in the tires - and made what I hoped would be the correct propitiation (how wrong could chocolate be?). Lo and Behold - flawless performance and a great rush of pleasure in getting the rock rolling until it felt like a glass ball bearing. I have to stop before my shoulders freeze in position but it hurts so good.
