Over the past few weeks we've had a major cold snap. The one that gave us all that ice. I was freezing in my sewing room. Freezing. I had to dress like I was going sledding. The cold gave me a headache so I didn't spend much time in there. I kept telling The Mister something was wrong with the heat vent but he kept telling me it was my fault because I had so much junk piled near it. I didn't. As you can see the heat could come out if it wanted to. To make a long story short, I pulled the vent out and low and behold.........being a new vent from when we did the floor last winter the packing stuff was still inside. No heat could get through....
.... so that 's why this is all I have to show for stitching this week. I got tired of the cold. It was giving me a headache. That's the Village Quaker from Jardin Prive on 16 count which is easy to work with but I'm not so sure I will like the results. It seems a little big but we'll see.
I did get the machine quilting on the snowflake quilt started in that room. Pulling that quilt around the machine kept me warm. I have to say it's been the most miserable machine quilting experience ever. I don't know if it's the shape-it's square or the material on the back but dragging it around the machine has been no fun. The good thing is that the material is so busy with its own swirls that you can't see the terrible job I am doing. It just isn't playing nice.
I love the vent story--it sounds like me and Bill. "I told you something was wrong...!" lolReplyDelete
The cold will be letting go soon for you!
It’s hard to be creative when you’re shivering and have stiff fingers. I’m glad you found the problem with the vent. Hopefully, this week will be warm in your sewing room and the Snowflake quilt will begin to cooperate.ReplyDelete
I'm so sorry about the lack of heat. It's not fun to be cold. The quilt is lovely though. I think we're all too hard on ourselves. No one else will notice what we think is wrong. :-)ReplyDelete
Some heat will make you all better and more cheerful!ReplyDelete
Something similar happened to us at our old place. Dave kept saying the vent wasn't block, it was just a crappy system... I went downstairs and found a lever on the duct... and pulled it! Instant heat!ReplyDelete
shhhh, I love to be right. Today I was wrong. Fireman questioned the batteries I was recharging. He was right. They were NOT rechargeable and he said that they could have exploded while i had them in a charger. YIKES! Ok ok. You can be right. Sorry its been no fun, but your quilt is gorgeousReplyDelete
Good for you to figure the problem out yourself! Now you'll be cozy in there. My crocheting is near our pellet stove so I keep nice and warm. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)ReplyDelete
Well good for you figuring out the problem and getting heat back in your room! Stay safe.ReplyDelete
