Ready and waiting !!!!!!

Well here I am ready  waiting and quietly excited, I have ordered a new machine with a table and hoping the phone will ring at anytime so I can go and get it. I have cleaned out my sewing room and made a few changes so I will be ready to get going, I have my quilt all pinned waiting... I suppose it was a good reason to clean out the room too.

Good heavens looking at this photo it still looks a mess hahahaha.


  





"Blosson Lane" quilt is coming along nicely and this is block 8, I've already started block 9 so not long now and it will be finished. I have an interesting question for everyone ...... are you like me ?.......when I get to the last couple of blocks on a quilt I get excited and seem to be in a big hurry to get it done ....... are you the same ?








Sadly my OPAM list for this month won't be good at all as everything at the moment is a WIP so I'm hoping to have a big list for next month.... if I get them all finished that is.... but there is still a few days left so you never know may I have something to post as a finish.

Has it arrived yet? Good thing that you have a quilt basted and ready to go - will give you a good idea of how the machine works.

I agree about the excitement when you're close to finishing a quilt - there's also the anticipation of what to start next.
