I received my new Brother open-toed walking foot a few days ago, and have finally gotten a chance to try it out a bit today. I'll share the results in a day or two if finished, but I'm very pleased with the visibility that this foot affords. I have felt some grinding or something, though, and am wondering if it is possible to oil this foot somewhere. I haven't tried yet, as the feeling comes and goes, and I've wanted to continue quilting, and not have to stop for the oil to be 'sewn' out of the foot.
Tonight is a soup dinner at the church, so I will close for now, and get back here another time. Today has been a beautiful sunny day, with a cold wind in the morning, and beautiful 60+ degrees in the afternoon.
We had a handyman come and replace some torn out shingles on the roof today. I hope that the repair lasts for a long time. I have gotten to dreading windstorms, as we always lose pieces of shingles !
" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???
The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary,
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:28-31
"The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught." Isaish 50:4
