A little set back recently...my pfaff sewing machine decided it wouldn't sew very fast. And, it acted like it had bad gasoline in it - stopping and starting and sputtering. What to do. It seems like I always have the pedal to the metal, so to speak. This was really slowing me down! So, I wiggled the cord. That didn't work...it sewed, just not fast. Not very productive. And still sputtering. Soooo, when sweetie came home, he checked the wiring of the foot pedal with his handy dandy ohm meter. All clear on the electrical front, so he took it apart and there was a little connection that slide up and down the metal spoke and it had broken off. (These are very technical terms, and I know what I'm talking about here.) A VERY small piece of plastic with a smaller round metal connection centered in it had broken off. This piece was the size of a large piece of pepper out of a grinder! So I got out the super glue and hemostats so I wouldn't glue my finger to the little plastic thingy (again, technical terminology). We let it dry over night, and lo and behold, the next day it still just sewed very slowly and still sputtered! So I called a couple of Pfaff dealers, I checked online for a new foot pedal. I even took my old foot pedal out shopping and tried it in a new machine. Didn't work there any better than it did at home! After all that, this is what I found:
The one on the left was just taken with my plain ol' camera. The one on the right was also taken with my plain ol' camera, but I put my sunglasses in front of the lens. (I told you I should learn more about filters!) I always think that my sun glasses make me see the world in a little more rosey light, so I thought they might help the rainbow, too. Can you tell the difference between the two?
Rainbows make me smile.
Hope your day is a rainbow smilin' day.
