    I'm trying to be frugal like most others, but I've wanted a home quilting frame for awhile. I picked up a Handiquilter frame on Craigslist at a great price. All pieces are there. It looks like it will be manageable and almost idiot proof.

    :oops: I however failed to think about the length of my kitchen table and just came to the realization that I'll only be able to do baby quilts with the thing.

    Well then it's time to get yourself a craft room! Seriously, it may feel like a bonehead move right now but it may be a really smart buy for future endevoures!

    I'd do something like this and blame it on being blonde! It comes in handy.

    Not boneheaded at all! For Christmas I asked for the Grace EZ3 frame. I have a large bedroom and my machine, computer desk, etc is in there. Well, the picture on the web (and on the box) of the frame show a smiling lady in front of a quilt that doesn't look too big. Well DUH.....if I am going to have a queen size quilt in the frame WHY didn't I realize how much room it would take???? Bless my heart, the quilt frame blocks me from getting to the treadmill now. Poor unused treadmill...... :lol:

    I got rid of my dining room table and put my quilting frame in its place. My hubby and I never use it since my son left home so it was the perfect place to put it.

    i'm beginning to detect a trend here.

    it isn't us blondes
    nor is the redheads
    brunettes take no blame
    i'll bet grays say, "not our heads!"

    this MUST mean quilters just DON'T make mistakes.

    we make surprise design changes

    so there! :wink:

    i - of course - am a natural blonde. [this is me with my snootiest expression and tone of voice. :lol: :lol: :lol: ]

    still ... i didn't want to go there (to the bottle complexities). the poem would've been 3 pages long. :shock: :lol:

    Patrice used her snootiest voice to make sure we all new she was a natural BLONDE...not a natural blond.

    I have the perfect solution: My HQ Sixteen Stitch Regulated Machine with professional frame that accommodates a king size quilt. It has not been sold yet and is listed in the Classified Ads section :wink:

    patrice is a blonde? according to her avatar, she's supposed to be a grey kitten lying on her back. i thought that was her favorite position for pondering our many problems.
