Quilt Meeting and Longarm Maintenance

I was so tired when I came home from the quilter's meeting last night that I went straight to bed, no blog and I all ready have an e-mail from my sister Ann this morning wondering where the blog is!

When we were in Iowa at the APQS factory early this month I noticed that the newer machines had a fatter "hopping foot." This is the foot much like a pressure foot on a regular sewing machine. Fatter is better allowing you greater control when using a ruler so I ordered a new one and Michael and I attempted to put it on the machine yesterday morning. What we thought would be a 2 hour job turned into a 6 hour job and we are not finished yet! Many calls to the factory and much stress! But, we are confident we can get it done today.

The Timberline Quilting Club was born last night, we chose this as our name. The Montana coordinator for the Quilts of Valor was our speaker and it was an awesome presentation. I will write more about that later today. There was not a dry eye in the room! I took the snacks (whoever wins the door prize brings the snacks for the next meeting) and got so many compliments on my cookies and dip. Nobody minded the Costco peppermint bark, either!

As I drove home last night the wind was blowing and it was snowing. This is what we woke up to this morning. It is beautiful!
We had sunny skies yesterday but lots of cold, cold wind.
