When I saw dust on the thread about to go through the needle in my machine, I realized THIS IS A PROBLEM! It was obviously being picked up when passing over the machine surfaces. Occasional dusting would not take care of this. I needed a machine cover NOW.
I have enough going on without taking the time to stitch up a cute colorful cover. What did I have on hand? Lots of green type fabric grocery bags, taking up room that could be used for more stash. After pawing through a pile of them, I found this larger black plastic fiber one. The size worked, so with my kitchen shears (NOT my Ginghers) I cut it down to size and voila! It fits perfectly and only took one minute. Not very colorful, so I will have to do something to deck it out. Maybe Christmas lights?
I'm working on a secret gift now, so that's it for now. Have a good time quilting.
