Merry Christmas everyone!!
Wow my first blog post, never thought I would be doing this, LOL. But with all my crafting I thought I'd give it a try. Not sure how often I will be able to update, but will do as time allows.
Sure wishing our son and his fiance would have made it down for Christmas but the weather in Minnesota is just not cooperating for that to happen. However our daughter and her hubby, who live across town, will be over for dinner tonight, so that will be nice.
I am so excited that my dear, sweet,generous hubby is getting me a Nolting quilting frame for Christmas. I have been quilting on a Super Quilter table top frame for close to 7 years now. First I had a Juki sewing machine on it for a year and a half, then moved up to the Nolting 16" Hobby Quilter on it when DH built me a wonderful sturdy base to put it on. After another year and a half Nolting came out with the Funquilter 17". Nolting machines are the greatest! Since we have empty nested DH finally agreed to let me turn our son's old room into my new quilting studio. I had been quilting in the basement, but will now be on the second floor in a much better environment. And since we could not get the old base up all those stairs and around corners he decided he would get me the new frame, which should take about 3 weeks to arrive. So I am painting the room tomorrow(I think). I will also move my stamping stuff up there. So lots of work ahead so it is all done when the frame arrives and I can get back to quilting.
