Today is finally Friday and not much has gone on. Had my monthly check with my pain specialist then came home and slept for the next 4 hours. Didn't sleep well last night and had to be up at 0630 this morning. Fixing to start knitting on a scarf right now.
I got a new machine today A Janome 360 QDC and it is wonderful. Do you know that if you ask you can get a discount? Like 20% off the price. Ladies I know we don't like to bicker but ask for a discount!! They took $250 off the price

Did I say that my lace yarn got here today? I started working with it already. Just did not want to wait.

Well ... that was an exercise in futility ... go back into chat and the first person that shows back up is someone that DOESN'T talk to me ... then someone showed up that does and neither one would speak ... they both went invisible but the word invisible wasn't showing so the only reason I knew someone was there was 'cause their chat was showing in the room.

This is the first post I have made to this blog in forever. Should prove to be interesting to see if I can keep it up and see if I get anyone to start reading it. Not gonna worry about it. Just gonna write in here for fun.
I'm making a quilt but do not have a quilting machine and was planning to have it quilted. Because I hate having short "drops", and mattresses keep getting deeper, I expect to make it slightly bigger than the typical 105 x 90 king size quilt. I won't expect a fancy pattern, maybe just a straight line of stitches an inch or so inside each square (squares are 7", 10 across and 10 down, plus borders and corners to make the sides/drops).

I like their original collections better. their site is one of my favorites to find inexpensive fabrics I like, and the good sales they have. Haven't been watching the thread but that's disturbing too. I need to find the customer service phone
Does anyone own a Juki TL-2200 QVP long arm quilter? I am interested in any blogs as well as any tips anyone could offer. I have problems when run out of thread in bobbin to continue row.

Our group of 4-H'rs got together yesterday and they had a blast trying out different designs. I thought you all might be interested in seeing what you can do with a few simple shapes.
For each shape I'm showing a closeup and then a larger view of the whole sample piece.
