Sorry folks . . I didn’t mean for you to think in the last post that I wouldn’t be around. I’ll always find a way to post, even if I’m knocking on the neighbor’s door and asking to borrow her dial up! I just won’t be as prompt to get back with you and my not be able to respond to comments til we get some quicker internet service.
Even though there are 2 or 3 million things I should be doing, I had a quilt that had to be quilted. It’s one for a magazine and I had started it but had stopped when Chad had his tonsils out because I knew he didn’t want to hear the machine running and then with the “we have a house/we don’t have a house/we have another house/we don’t have a house” roller coaster last week, I just couldn’t get back to quilting but about Thursday, I knew I had no choice but to get it done. It’s a big quilt and I was doing custom quilting and it took forever! I was so happy to get it done.
That’s all you can see. The backing all rolled up. I will be nice enough to tell you when it comes out in the magazine though! 🙂
Once that quilt was done, we set about to dismantle the longarm. That always makes me so nervous.
This is when I really appreciate Vince. There’s no way I would ever be brave enough to do this by myself. Two of the bars have been removed and he’s working on getting the third one off.
The longarm is dismantled. The table and bars are up against the wall. The machine head is packed in its box. Last move I carried it in my car but this time I’m going to trust it to the movers. There are too many other things I want to pack in my car — a few dishes, some pots and pans, forks and spoons, a sewing machine, some projects, a few knitting projects.
Chad and Nicole took the old treadle machine. They want to refinish it and use it for a TV stand so I let them have it. I had a desk I had bought for here and doubt I need in TX and they can use it so they took that. The house is starting to look like we might be moving in about 4 days! 🙂
