    Got her this weekend and all set up. I've been playing around since Saturday night. Even my kids played around on her a bit. I need to get more practice muslin & batting but am about comfortable enough to try out a top on her.

    Full view.

    Head shot.

    And the rest of the room. It's getting pretty full and I'm not even close to having everything in there yet. I'm wondering where I had everything stashed when I was sewing in the dining room?!?!?!?

    I'm to afraid I'd ruin someone else's tops! TJ has a friend whos wife asked about me doing some stuff for her. I told TJ it would be 2 years before I can even think about it.
