I have so many words running through my head right now, I’m not sure where to start.
Then INTRIGUED…..a new Canadian linky blog has started – a chance to showcase your WIPs. If you’re a Canadian blogger, with needlework of any kind to share – here’s your forum. Let’s see how many of us are out there!
And EXCITED and SCARED – all at the same time. A few posts ago, I shared a little bit of my bucket list. Well, the bucket is a little emptier now, the list a little shorter…..because Santa arrived early around here and this is now standing in our bedroom:
Yes, quilters, it’s true – for you non-quilters out there, it’s a mid-arm quilting machine. I so wanted one of these, but thought it was truly a pipe dream, but circumstances just came together all of a sudden, and here it is. EXCITED!!!! Now I can finish up all those quilts that are tucked in the boxes you see underneath. and SCARED!!!! Not sure that I really know what I’m doing. Thankfully I have a couple of friends with the same machine, so I can get help and advice.
As you can see, there was some furniture rearranging to be done to make this fit in our house, specifically in the master bedroom, the only room with a wall long enough. The lady that sold it to me even supplied a ‘skirt’ to attach to it so I can hide all my secrets.
Today I’ll load it up with some practice fabric, and test it out for the first time.
Here’s to Words – so happy to have them to express all the wonder and joy of life!
