One monkey off my back

     It is no secret I have many quilts in line to be quilted. What made it worse, is I loaded a quilt in February on the longarm and had a heart attack two days later. It seemed an insurmountable task to work on it. Besides fatigue, stamina, and not knowing if I could do it, it sat and sat and nothing else could get done. I had to do the baby quilt for my daughter, so this quilt, Split Decision, had to be completed. I said a lot of prayer, girded up my loins (Biblical reference) and gritted my teeth. It got done in time to do the baby quilt I delivered last week.

    Finally, I was able to take it outside to photograph because there was some sun today. I need to bite the bullet and buy lights and do it properly inside. I have the stand.
FINALLY!!

Also- Blogger has been unkind lately to comments. I just got a lump of them. It strips out the email addresses. I will be more vigilant to search and answer. I have the email addresses of those whom I know, but if you are a non-frequent commenter, please leave your email. This has been very hard as you, my readers, are my quilt community!

Getting started is the hard part. I haven't loaded one on my longarm for over 5 months. Once I do one I'll do a second one.

Good for you for girding up and getting it done. That had to feel like such an accomplishment, and a milestone for getting back to what it is you want to do! Great job!
