Last of my ornaments, machine locked up. :(((( Yorilo's Yr Angels. Made 2 sets one in solid colors, forgot to take picture as these were sent to Friends for Christmas. Urban Threads deer, Sue let know about.

The machine gives me a strange message 'tcpm', is locked up tighter than a drum, can't raise the needle, can't raise pressure foot, all it does is shake and vibrate. Called the sewing dealer and his repair guy is out on jury duty till after the first of the year! Every part is stuck at the moment have to be somewhere this evening...will attempt to look at better later on tonight or tomorrow. Crummy mummies... fails into that category that STUFF happens. Stand back and regroup! Thank heaven I got as much done as I did, it will all work out. Poor baby machine, she is just tired.

Always open for new ways to try things. Just like you I wasn't prepared for it to be at this time of year. Oh well...it's time I did a little bit of baking...oh no here come the calories. hahaha

Fabulous FSL. I'm sorry about your machine. Sometimes, I think things happen just so we will have to slow down and contemplate. Christmas hugs!

I'm sure you are right, it was suppose to be and that's alright now I'll just go into the kitchen and do some baking. At least what I was doing was low calorie! lol

Don't know, I was suppose to be done that's why she's playing possum. You watch she will work fine when I take her in. Bad baby sewing machine. lol

When I work with FSL I always limit to three designs give my machine a rest, clean it, cool down. I only have a brother cheap machine and it can get tired fast. I hope after a little rest you'll be able to fix the problem.
Good luck.
You FSL looks great :)

loosie, I'm thinking you are right. I did clean and change needles several time. I just never thought to do as you suggest. However I think there it something else going on with the gears. Thank you. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Hope the machine has given in to you. Do you think it is trying to tell you that you are working it too hard?

The angels and reindeer are lovely. I especially like what you did with the reindeer. The nose really adds another dimension to the ornaments.
Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year.
Hugs,
Donna
