The Millennium is resting.
I am not a happy gal, it is my fault. I have an APQS Millennium, (named Lenni, long before APQS developed a machine they call Lenni) and on Saturday I gave it a push, to send it over to its parking spot. I was using the circle lord and had not completely removed the stylus, which fell down and stopped the motion of the machine. This rather abrupt motion broke a wheel. At least this is my theory. The phone was ringing, and I knew I would be awhile, so as not to have a problem with oil on the quilt I gave it that fatal push. I didn't notice the damage until the next morning. These things never happen when one is not busy. That's a law. Murphy's Law. The quilt on the frame needed only one more block and a couple of 'corrections'. The first thing in a sheer panic I ordered wheels online. Then I heard some not good things about these wheels, more panic, cancelled the order. The short version of this story is I ordered Edgerider wheels, and am impatiently awaiting them. In the meantime, I am trying very hard to get other work done....most of it unpleasant...like paperwork, housework. But that was yesterday. Today I have a Guild meeting in the evening and during the day I am going to organize my studio. Better known as fondling fabric. gudrun
