    I got my longarm machine yesterday. I spent most of the rest of the day setting up the frame. wow, I'm not used to that kind of physical labor. :roll: But I got it up with the help of my DSI. Today I spent getting the machine set up and ready to sew. Then I played and played and played. Now I'm tired and need to get some much needed sleep. Didn't sleep much last night or the night before. Too excited. I'll post a pic in the next day or so.

    Congrats and welcome to the longarmers! In no time, you will be seeing quilting designs EVERYWHERE! I once wanted to ask my pastor if I could take a picture of his shirt! My family has to take me by the arm if we go to Las Vegas...I'm taking pictures of the carpet! Oh, and my DH says I cannot quilt past 8:30PM. If I do, I thrash around in the bed all night long! AHhh..Dreaming of quilting!

    Ruthie, I am so happy for you! I know exactly how you feel. I got mine in January. Remember there is a hefty learning curve to them, just keep playing and it will just come to you all of the sudden. Then the real fun begins!!! Sleep tight!

    Yes but I'm not very imaginative I named her Lizzie.

    Congrats to you! Yes, I'm jealous too! I took my first longarm class yesterdday (to rent the machine at my LQS) and am so excited for my next one. To have one of my own is definitely on my wish list!
