Digging out

From piles of fabric, that is! I am trying to get things worked on around the studio. I am doing more art and craft shows this year, I hope it pays off.  I also have more bookkeeping clients to support this year, so time is definitely at a premium.

Big news, though- I finally got a new quilting machine! It's a 16" Crystal Quilter,  and is a brand new machine! I'm so excited, I will now be able to quilt on King size quilts for customers. One of my goals this year is to learn free motion feathers & pebbles. I'm really, really good at and comfortable with all-over pantograph quilting, so this is the basis of the quilting I can offer to customers. If you have a quilt that you need quilted, feel free to contact me.  I'm happy to discuss custom work!

Unfortunately, I injured my wrist moving furniture this weekend, so the inaugural run of the new machine is delayed. I have a top almost ready to go on the frame, so hopefully it won't be too long before I get to give it a good workout. 

Thanks for reading!
