Having a good portion of the sewing room cleaned has inspired me to keep getting rid of clutter in there. I have almost all the clutter off of the tables on the one side and all of the fabric that was piled up there put in it's proper bin. This is a huge deal and I'm glad it's done.
While sewing on the wall hanging, I wanted to change the bobbin color. The bobbin case in Clarice (301) is the same as in Olga (Featherweight). While at the show in Paducah, I purchased a new bobbin case for $50 - yes, $50! - because the bobbins in both Clarice and Olga are functional, but rusty in spots. I had been warned that the newer bobbin cases don't always work properly in the old machines, so I was a bit leery, however I purchased it anyway.
When I first put it in the machine it and tried to stitch, the thread just turned into a nest. Ugh. I kept at it, though, and finally got it seated correctly and sewing a pretty stitch! I'm pleased with it.
