On the frame again today...
I tried something different and have been way more comfortable.
I attached my foot pedal,,, and undid the BSR, Yes its a bit different, but it worked.
I am not a fan of the BSR!
Blue thread at the top is with the BSR... the rest I have done with the foot pedal and NOT the BSR.
The squares are 1".. I used the Frixion pen for the grids... and ironed it off carefully after I had completed what I wanted to sew. (while still on the frame)
I dont think I will use the Frixion pen to sew my main quilting, but for practice ..they are great, ( and I really love them) but I am unsure of how they will behave after time.
Still a long way to go...but it feels easier.
A little awkward under the frame as I have my machines foot peddle on a large plastic container...
At present I am sitting on a kitchen stool.
Not the best, but at least I can see what is being sewn and its more as I am used to.
I may take the height adjustments off the frame so I can stand comfortably without getting a crick in my neck.
Also may take off the lower bar, that the top goes on and just float the top and batting...
That way I can sit to sew...
