Ok so there are a few things going on with my quilt. I bought my longarm because of my bad shoulder. Well after finishing the quilt (posting a better picture below) I realized it would look better quilted by hand. Problem #2 I discovered my quilt frame that my mom and dad made for me years ago was left outside. Sanding and refinishing them.

I was looking forward to a peaceful holiday and now I have a whole bunch of people coming over. Cookies are made. Pies were finished last night and in a little bit Tom Turkey will be prepped and put in the oven. Enjoy the family…Continue
