You have been great friends this year listening to my tales of woe---my mother passing, my BFF with ovarian cancer (recovering at present) and my sick dog (not any better.) I want to share my happy news with you: I ordered an HQ Sweet 16 sit down quilter and it was just delivered!!! I'm so excited I had to tell all of you. I'm laughing because it took me 15 min to figure out how to get the box open--can't imagine how long it will take to learn the machine itself. I'm chomping at the bit (Pony Club speak) because DH is out of town and I can't even get it out of the box until he's home Sunday. I'm so happy!! Just had to share with my QB friends!!
