So today is the 16th day of Advent and our treat has already been consumed.
Chocolate and mint -- one of my favorite combos! DH didn't complain, either.
On the quilting front, this was my first day on my own with the new longarm.
Not sure why I have missed stitches in the midst of an otherwise perfect pass. I obviously missed some points in the hasty training after the day-long installation yesterday. I think I unstitched as much as I stitched today. The digital manual and videos are proving very helpful, though and I am not discouraged. Just taking it in small bites.
it will take a little bit to get used to the machine I would think. I have heard some people use a small panel to practice on that they picked up on sale so they don't ruin something they really like.ReplyDelete
Can't go wrong with chocolate
There's always a learning curve and it never works like it does during training. Good luck!ReplyDelete
Chocolate and mint is definitely a good combination! Keep going - you'll figure it out!ReplyDelete
Well we all take time to learn new things! I know you will master the long arm before you know it! Yum on choc/mint! Have a great day!ReplyDelete
I just read all your "days" Libby. So much wonderful!! Topping the list is that lovely GGD of course, But a new long arm too! Choc/mint is my favourite combo too. Lovely blocks on your design wall and here's to learning new things/gismos, etc. Your back will no doubt thank you for it too but good to know your bones are dense still. LOLReplyDelete
