    I have been saving for a while now, and went to the AQS show in Des Moines over the weekend and put it on order.  I'm so excited!   We're planning to pick it up next week.

    quiltedsunflower got a reaction from dbams in Moving the Freedom   
    All moved and settled!  It was really very easy.  The rails and legs went in the moving truck but I hauled the head in the trunk of my car with lots of batting around it.  My husband said he thought we could move it any where because it was so easy - but trust me - not planning to move again any time soon.  The packing wasn't so bad.  It's the unpacking and putting away that is the hassle.  I need the other Mary Beth's organization method I think.  I was totally overwhelmed with the number of boxes and tubs I had that were marked "sewing room".  So far just the Freedom and my Bernina are set up.  Nothing else is unpacked.  One of these days..........

    My husband is not a hunter  :-(  Since he retired in March I haven't had much time to sew.  He's the one who needs a hobby.  I have PLENTY!!!

    I have the paint chips, but all my fabric is in storage.  My sister is going to do it and I'll help her.  She has a huge stash and likely has enough of ALL the colors to make two.  I'm not sure she will share, however.  LOL.  Maybe in February, when I get my stash out of storage I might jump on the bandwagon.  That way I can see the finished project before I commit.

    quiltedsunflower got a reaction from LibbyG in PUGGLES quilt is finished and I got paid.   
    I don't make quilts for others, or at least I haven't to this point except for T-shirt quilts, but I do make city flags to be flown at city hall and public safety buildings.  I agree with the 3X the cost of supplies.  It works for flags anyway.

    I was looking for some type of floor finish.  Hadn't heard of Polytec but I'll give it a look-see.  I love this forum.  So much to learn!!!

    They started framing on our new house last week.  I will have a dedicated space in the basement - but it's a walk out with lots of windows and natural light.  I don't know the dimensions of the room exactly, but I'm hoping it's at least the 16 x 18 that you all are talking about.  Everything is in storage now so I can hardly wait to get moved!!!

    Mary Beth:  I have made a similar resolution to use solely from my stash for new quilts.  It shouldn't be a problem really......except for the fact that our house is on the market and I had to pack up my sewing room and make it back into a bedroom.  Everything is in 3 closets, but finding stuff is the challenge right now.  Plus the fact I hate to get stuff out and have to put it all away all the time to show the house.  Hopefully it will sell quickly!  Then it's just getting it stored till the new house is completed.  After typing this I realize I likely won't be doing much quilting for a while.   Now I'm sad .  I haven't been home for 3 weeks (except briefly on weekends) as I'm helping to take care of the new grandbaby twins, William and Gabriel, and their big sister Gloria, age 17 months.  I guess I really don't have any time to quilt anyway.   But all those grandbabies sure make me happy

    I color coded the end of mine by category and keep them in wine cases.  They come with the cardboard dividers that nicely hold four pantos each.  The best part is, you get to drink the case of wine!!! LOL

    I can't believe it, but today is my last day of work.  It's kinda bittersweet, but I'm so looking forward to catching up at home and catching up on quilting!  Seems like there has been no time at all lately.    Heck, maybe I can even figure out how to post a picture!  I have to confess, I'm mostly looking forward to being Grandma to little Gloria!  I interested to know what my new day will look like.  Will I really have more time - or as many friends have told me, will I be busier then than I am now?  At any rate, I'm gonna find out!  SO EXCITED
