What I learned today.
When it is 11:00 pm and you think to yourself you should go to bed, just do it.
If you ignore that voice and decide to sew, make sure your sewing machine does not sound like a freight train- you will wake up the whole house.
If this happens and it finally clicks in your head to oil your machine, go back to the original idea of bed.
However if you again ignore that sensible voice in your head, DO NOT use the the oil bottle from your pneumatic nail gun to oil your sewing machine! There is no such thing as a couple drops coming out of that bottle.
If you use it anyway and oil is dripping from everywhere, go with your first thought, GO TO BED.
having a great night.
Ps. I stayed up and I was able to get all the 16 patch squares done for my quilt. Yes yes yes ... So excited. Persistence!
