So Look What I Got Into....

I got lucky....yep, but it's not what you're thinking (get your mind out of the gutter!!). A friend of a friend decided to sell her HandiQuilter and guess who the first person was she asked to buy it? Give up? Yep, it's me. I am now the proud owner of a barely used HandiQuilter Sixteen. It's living in my basement and it's working out just great!!!! I've quilted one top, that was finished in 2010. It was suppose to be a birthday gift for my Mom. So she gets it a couple years late, she'll like it anyway...LOL.

So this is it. My design used with Twist 'n Turn

Loved the panel so much I bought 2 and made myself a quilt too. It was loaded onto the HandiQuilter last night and will be done in a few days. I actually have a drawer in one of my cabinets that has quilt tops that are finished just waiting to be quilted. There are 3 more I think, along with a couple table runners and a Christmas Tree Skirt. At this rate I might get them all done before Fall gets here.

On a different note, spent this past Saturday with Hubby's family in PA. Had an awesome day and my granddaughter got to meet a lot of relatives she didn't know she had. She had an awesome time's a picture to prove it!!

This was after a long day of swimming, boat rides and generally just running around. And she still had energy!! Amazing. I was exhausted just sitting in the heat, eating crabs and watching everyone else play. Oh to have her energy!!

Hopefully next post will include pictures of 2 table runners I've finished, along with a door hanging, and the other quilt. Wish me luck, and stay out of the heat!!
