Houston, we have liftoff....
My new Quiting Machine is on the way.
I am calling her Ethel.
She left Sydney at 3 p.m. today, and will arrive at Studio Christine sometime Monday.
Evidently, a lot of owners name their machines.
Sometimes they even use that name in regular conversations.
I have no clue why I am calling her Ethel, it is just an old name, and seeing as I am buying her "used" I thought it fits.
The quilt isn't mine, this was the picture I saw when I decided I *needed* a quilting machine.
And, after a lot of budgeting, foofing about and applications, I will have one Monday!
The Studio looks like a bowling alley. A BIG piece of clean floor in the centre, and stuff banked up on both sides.
The camera couldn't cope with taking a picture of nothing between me and the windows...sorry, you will have to take my word for it.
The fun jigsaw-y part comes when I have to put everything away, and learn to quilt....
having a room to clear
the internet, for FAST communication
a way of finishing all my quilt tops
an opportunity to learn a new skill,
and a friend to teach me said skill
