    Well, it's time to let the cat out of the bag so to speak.

    I got my dream job working in a quilt shop quilting on the longarm! It is the shop where I bought my Bernina and they have known me and my work for over a year now, and they asked me if I would be interested in working there quilting the quilt tops.

    Whoo hoo! I start this Wednesday! I'm so excited!

    Congrats! Just one word of warning. . . beware of burnout. I'm also a knitter and worked at a couple of knit shops. We offered personal instruction and after dealing with difficult customers I sometimes had a hard time even picking up my own knitting. Don't let the hard cases get to you.

    Do you get to use the long arm to do your own quilts? Sounds good as long as it doesn't take up all your time :D :D I hope it is everthing good and you have heaps of fun :D

    Congratulations!!! I am tickled to death for you!!!

    Hey-I used to live on Merritt Island!! But it was a long time ago-in the 1960's and I was in the 6th grade. I have not been back since.
