    I went & picked up Martha' today! Thanks for all the encouragement!

    I drove 2 1/2 hours one way to pick up an Inspira quilting frame, with a Janome 1600DBX machine. All the directions were there, extra bobbins, needles, and a 13 gallon trash bag FULL of pantograms! The frame has a panti shelf & laser light. The lady had everything labeled & I took pictures before it was all taken apart. Plus it cones with a stitch regulator! I am sooooooo excited. When the little lady found out that we were moving & I was getting a 'room' for quilting, she also gave me a twirling 3 sided peg board with the peg hooks to hang......rulers, scissors, thread......you get the idea. Also 5 totes of fabric, 12-15 Bolts of fabric, and a few quilting books! The Lord blessed me with all this for $460.00. Meet Martha (thought it was an appropriate game since that was the lady's name I got her from)
    LaQuita (aka) - Yai-Yai to the most precious grandbaby around of course I'm partial! LOL

    HAPPY QUILTING!
