French-press Coffee Cozy

I haven't been posting much ... because we've been out camping ... but after 11 mornings of using a french press and only having the 1st cup come out hot each time ... I got working when I got home and made a French-press Coffee Cozy!


It was pretty simple.  2" squares from the scrap bin, a 3x5" piece of scrap to go through the handle.  Add lining, batting a velcro and it was done!  

We went from Hood Canal, WA to Crescent City, CA and back along the Oregon Coast road.

Destination reached (and oh were they AMAZING):

Redwood State Park (dogs allowed on Cal-Barrel Rd trail
And we even got a little kayaking in (albeit in the rain)

Then back home and immediately into celebrate my 55th birthday in Seattle with great friends ... April was definitely a whirl-wind month!

Hope you all are doing well!

All the best

Machine stitching question

Hoping someone might have some thoughts on what is causing this ... 

Background ... sometimes, when I put a new bobbin in the machine, and start stitching, I get the following issue on the bottom of the fabric.  This happens both with straight stitching as well as free motion as indicated below.



When it happens, I simply pull the bobbin out and put it back in again and it goes away ... 

Does anyone have any thoughts on what I might be doing wrong.  From my perspective, I feel like I am putting the bobbin in the same way in both instances.  But if there's something I need to be doing different ... I am all ears ... tired of having to rip stuff out (at least I am now paying attention and look pretty quickly each time I change bobbins).

I have a Juki 2010Q.

Thanks a bunch!

All the best
Lisa
