I am so glad you have finally come to your senses and realized you need to have quilting back in your life! Welcome back!

It will feel good to get back into quilting.  :-)

I plan to do that after I reorganize my sewing room again.  My long arm is being picked up this weekend by Kathi Shunn and her DH.  I decided that my shoulders were not going to tolerate the required movement of the machine although it does move easily and smoothly.  Those of you who were at the retreat may have noticed the pain I was having with my right shoulder.  I have moved out of my sewing room lots of UFOs and other items.  One of the guest rooms is full of them now.  I will be selective about what goes back in.  I will be quilting by check from now on unless it is a small project like a mug rug or table runner that I can do on my home machine.  The machine is going to a good home and will be used more than I ever could and the quilting will be better than any I could do.

Oh, look at me! I'm loading a 104" x 116" top!  Woo hoo!

And Mishii?  I'm using that gray dot grunge fabric for the backing! 

This is using one of the bigger packaged batting that I have: 120" x 120".  I did need to trim the width of the batting to fit my machine.

Onwards, to finish the loading!
