    Wait, than wait some more...

    I waited for my Bailey to arrive. Than I waited for my husband to have a day off to help me set it up. Storm preparation was more important, of course, so now I have to wait for darn Sandy to finish its hissy fit to get my machine going. The only place I can put it is by my large bay window, which is just about the most dangerous place in the storm. I am patient, but this is too much. I can see the machine, but I cannot use the machine....I think that once it is set up I will not sleep for a week to make up the lost time.
    I've got a smile on my face, I've got four walls around me
    The sun in the sky, the water surrounds me
    I'll win now but sometimes I'll lose
    I've been battered, but I'll never bruise

    I can sure understand your wanting it up and running but until it's safe to put it there it is
    much better off not being put together I'm sure, so just bear with it a while longer.
    May you always have Love to Share , Health to Spare, and Friends that Care!

    They say to practice with the Bailey on a table first. Maybe you can do that until you can get the frame up where you want it? Have fun with it when you can!

    Remember, people will see your quilts long after you are gone....NOT your housework!

    Congratulations, there will be time to enjoy your machine. Just looking at it knowing it is there with you should tide you over

    Stay safe. The long wait will make it sweeter when you finally get it up and running. You probably won't sleep for a very long time!! lol

    Quilts4charity you have just named my machine - Miss Bailey. The moment I saw the name in your post, I new it's the right one. When our daughter was a wee little one we called her Miss Pris and now she is Miss Maya. Miss Bailey fits great in our family.
