I Did It

It has been an exciting day!!! I took the plunge and purchased a used APQS Millennium Longarm Quilting Machine. It will arrive sometime soon from Iowa on a big semi-truck. The table is 14 feet long so needless to say, I won't be taking it with me in the RV. I am so excited I can't think of anything else!

When we built this house, we only put two bedrooms upstairs--the master suite and one very small guest bedroom and bath. But, we put a full basement under the house and Michael uses one of the three rooms downstairs as a workshop, I use the smallest as a sewing room and the largest is our storage room and also holds our extra refrigerator and the freezer. We are going to convert the old sewing room into the storage room and use the largest room as my quilting studio. The refrigerator and freezer will have to remain in that room, too. I am so lucky to have the room for something as big as a longarm quilting machine! I hope to be able to turn this into a business and get so much pleasure from doing so.

After I came down out of the clouds, we decided to take a bike ride into town. We had lunch at the Frosty Freeze, drifted over towards Reed Point then came home. It was a little too hot to be out. Tonight we are going to the home of friends for dinner.

  1. Congratulations! I am really happy for you with the new machine. Another friend of mine has one, she is also talented, as you are! Your Lonestar Quilt is beautiful!!

    If you do decide to go "commercial", I will be in line, for sure.
