So today has been a lot more productive than the other day. It probably went much better because I prayed before I started that today would be more productive, I wouldn't have any issues, and that the machine would work better. So it did.
I got quite a bit done and I decided that after every two or three puppets that I would wind a few bobbins while I cleaned the machine out. It worked like a dream and I got several puppets done. These are the ones I finished. Obviously I wasn't thinking to clearly when I made Aladdin in a white fabric but other than that nothing went wrong!
