This is the latest that I called “Not a Maze” all quilted – done in Retro Leaves (a digital computerized pattern) - now I just have to get some bindings done.
My DH and I decided to bite the bullet and tackle changing out a seemingly faulty switch on my new-to-me longarm. OK. True confessions … I decided that we would tackle the switch and dragged him kicking and moaning up-the-down staircase – claiming all of the way that he didn’t know anything about electricity. Oh yeah? Then why did you work for an electric utility for 30 years? But I was an Accountant he whined …[and he was a darn good one].
We followed the instructions kinda loosely since that exact part isn’t made anymore:
And we did a great job:
Except for that small (or rather long) slit down the back of that protective cushy covering. It tore when we tried to get to the wires. Maybe I can find a bicycle handle cover to replace that – or electrical tape – or good old duct tape … But otherwise, the new switch works wonderfully! We’re geniuses, I gotta tell ya.
This is the back of Not a Maze showing the quilting of the Retro Leaves - I'm having a blast again:
Next up is a large Quilt of Valor. Wish me luck!
