    Full body workout!!!

    Anyone who thinks quilting is for little old ladies is crazy. They should try wrestling a queen size quilt through a 5 inch harp............my shoulders, arms and neck are sore..............not done yet, Aleve time......will so be worth it when it is done..............just had to say.........
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Diet Dr. Pepper in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    My avatar looked and felt like an anaconda! I had it rolled up and draped over two chairs behind me. So over my right shoulder it went and through the harp of the machine. I wish I had taken pictures. I was worn out wrestling with it!
    I do enjoy sleeping under it every night, though. No pain, no gain! Love these quilting adventures.

    How right you are. Of course, then comes the chocolate as a reward as we lounge cuddled up in the quilt.
