Another Quilty Day

Thanks for all the good thoughts for my DH. He is feeling better -- needs to make sure he eats lunch (he gets busy working on his tractor and forgets!). And, I think he's getting used to the new meds too.

Today I finally started quilting the Scrappy Pineapple Blossom. I can't believe it has taken me this many long years to really try to machine quilt well. The next few scrap quilts are all going to be practice, practice, practice.
Ran into a friend last night and she bought herself a really great new longarm machine. (She had asked my advice a few months ago and I told her to hold out for a longarm -- don't waste your money on a shortarm! LOL) It'll be delivered on Friday and she's having it set up in her family room where her hubby watches TV! She figures he'll probably start working on that new studio he promised to build her a lot faster if he has to listen to her quilt all the time! -- Smart woman!

Gotta go root for the Seahawks (Should have been the Bears playing them tonight!) Oh, yeah, guess I should probably find something for dinner too!

He will definitely have that studio finished in no time. No way will he be able to hear the TV over the longarm. She's a very smart woman! :)

We certainly are the smarter gender, huh?

good advice to your friend and of course she is totally correct-motivate by sharing the same space usually works! Good for you to get back to machine quilting-I will be doing the same thing today so you have some company :-)

Glad DH is feeling better. Lucky friend! I would need the new studio first, before I got the long arm! Love the wonky shamrocks!

Oh what a great idea to get that studio! Now if I could just get my husband to let me get a long-arm!
