I've been doing some serious bonding with my quilting machine, Arthur. I named the machine Arthur (as in Arthur Murray) because we dance across the quilts together. I'm a bit clumsy, he is smooth as silk and never steps on my toes. As of last night, I'm only about a third of the way finished.....after six hours of dancing! One would think this would be an excellent weight loss program!
I've got many more hours to go on Summer's Blush. I have another busy week ahead, so I will just have short periods of time when I can get to my quilting room and spend time with Arthur. I can see in this picture that I caught a 'stitch in the flange'......sounds like a medical term doesn't it? Maybe we were dancing a bit too fast.
Once I set my quilting plan into action, there's no stopping me. It's just the getting started part that is my hangup. I worry about the end result way too much instead of trusting my instincts and just GO FOR IT!
Arthur and I will be taking a break today. I'll be down at the shop helping customers select fabrics for their beautiful quilts. My advise for you today is....... trust your instincts and go for it!
Have a wonderful day and week.
