I'm still pinching myself...

I still find it a little bit hard to believe, but this weekend my mother and I purchased a longarm together!  It is a used machine that we bought from a friend and we will be keeping it in my basement (because that is the only room that would hold this beast!).  We have to give a huge thanks to my husband, step-dad and father-in-law for moving this thing across town and putting it back together.  Not an easy task, but they did a great job.

Now comes the fun part...trying to figure this thing out and getting lots of practice!  The first practice piece we have on the machine above is a flannel panel quilt that has a very busy pattern (so our novice stitches won't really matter ;-))

If I'm not posting for awhile, I think now you'll know why...I'm quilting!

I hope you have a great week and don't forget to get out and vote today.
