How many of you still head for your sewing room, even when you don't feel good?
A couple of the strips show up as black in the picture, but they are burgundy.

My life is but a quilting
between The Lord and me
i may not know the pattern he
knows what it shall be.
For he can see the quilting
from the upper side, while i
I can only see it from the underside.
Sometimes he blocks in sorrow
which seems so cruel to me,
But I must trust his choices
and go on painfully.
It's god who chose the pattern and he knows what's
best for me,
So I must trust his judgement and go on

I did it in blues and green as a surprise for someone. It will be shipped later this week.

I have been quilting since I was about 12, and decided almost a year ago to get a embroidery machine. Since I was new to it, I bought a refurbished Singer Futura, in case I didn't like it and... I love it!
I have been using the program that came with the machine but it does very basic editing, rotate, flip kind of stuff. I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations on a editing software. Something easy to use and not extremely expensive.

Photo 3 is the back. I used up the leftovers. Just made it.
I recently cleaned out my parents house to sell and discover her old sewing machine. It would have been purchased in the 70s or 80s. The machine says Foley on it and the model # is 6200s. It looks to be in good shape, all metal, and does some embroidery stitches. Can anyone help me identify it? Thanks in advance for the help.

This week I finally finished long arm quilting my first full size bed quilt--had been doing lap quilts and crib quilts since I got my Gammill. It was a good/bad experience--loaded fine, tension great, like some of the custom quilting design I did on the open areas, satisfied with my choice of thread and happy with background quilting. Not so pleased with the end design I used on the pieced blocks--just don't have the skills yet to match my vision. I know--practice, practice,practice. But I
