    UPDATE: I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve - Its here and ready to go!!!!

    For those of you who asked for an update and pictures, I did buy it, it is set up and ready to go. Took us about 2 or 3 hours to get it all ready and I did load a quilt and began to practice a little this afternoon. So much fun ahead I think. First practice went well. Slow and steady in my new phrase. Here are a couple pictures of my Baileys and sewing room redo.

    So happy for you!! Love your room too! I hope you have many happy hours there!
    Never met a scrap of fabric or vintage sewing machine I didn't like!
    Many a lost and lonely vintage machine has found a home with me, 26 and------ uh oh lost count, who is counting anyway!

    I second that! It's so great to be able to actually see the floor.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    So happy for you! Congratulations....wonder how long it will take before the room gets flooded with fabulous projects, smile. I have a Bailey Pro 17E, too. You lucked out by buying it from someone who showed you how to use it. And you can call her if you have any questions, too. No doubt she told you about the Bailey forum. Lots of good information there.

    Oh she is beautiful! Being a rather new quilter I don't know a lot about long arms but I do know enough to appreciate your new gal. How lucky for you, congrats!

    Thanks everyone! I am excited to learn to use it. Hoping for sewing time tonight. I did try it a bit on Sunday before family came over - and had remarkably good luck! My sewing room will never be that clean again, lol. I have just swapped my grandbabies room with craft room, repainted and de-cluttered to be able to fit the machine in. I did have to give up some things I wanted, like a cutting table and ironing table, to make it fit but I think it will be worth it. I have a nice island in my kitchen I can cut on and I can use the portable ironing board as needed.
    Hoping fun sewing days are ahead. My husband is easily impressed, he thinks I am doing good already, hahaha ....crazy man. At least he see my potential after shelling out so much money for a toy for me. I do feel lucky to be able to get this. I plan to retire in the next 5 years, wanted to buy it while I am working and have the money.
