First of the Free Motion

This is the first time since owning the NV400 that I've opened up the needle plate and bobbin casing since I bought it.. it has been cleaned out when its been serviced, but starting up free-motion it was a bit inconsistent so I decided to clean house!

Plates off!!

Bobbin casing out!!

This is one of the first squares I've done before The Clean

Then this one, still before The Clean.. there was a lot of bubbling, tensions troubles.. I'm still finding my feet!

Now this one is after The Clean!!
much better.. Tension of 4.1-4.2

I like the dark material with light thread better.. there are some mucky stitches, a lot, but from far away it looks awesome!!!
