    Finished setting up the new Grace New Gen frame today. There were a few parts missing, like the levelers for the center legs (thus the board). Cindy's 9 inch Viking Megaquilter is loaded on it and it's running well.

    I've had a few 'doh' moments, like when I spent a half hour with my bad eyes trying to re-thread the needle on the machine, then after I finally got it, read in the manual about the built-in threading aid. DOH! :)

    I threw on a piece of old batting I found in the closet, and a few yards of old fabric cut in half to make a "top" and "backing" and now I'm looping and doodling away, trying to get the hang of it. I know the batting is way oversized, and it looks like a mess, but it's been all crunched up in a bag for a few years and I was too much in a hurry to cut it down to size.

    Oh well, at least it's a start!

    Looks like you're all set! Enjoy.

    Not to go OT but I don't think I've ever seen a photo included with Quote Reply.
    How strange.

    Never mind - it's a hotlinked img, not attached.

    Thought I was seeing things.
