After much thought, I have finally picked the name "Annie" for my A-1. I've received several emails asking if I had named my machine yet?? I got the idea from my friend Kathy G. I always look for little "signs" or coincidences. While I was shopping LAs, I found it interesting that the machine I liked best, the A-1 Elite has the initials "A and E" just like Alyssa and Elaina.
I seem to be a little frustrated with my practicing or lack of. I was getting a bit frustrated at the look of my quilting and have been avoiding practicing a bit lately. I was told this would happen. Scott keeps telling me "Just keep practicing and you're doing great!" I'm just going to have to work through this little "roadblock."
I have received several emails regarding my fabric stash. It's small, but it does exist. All the fabric I own has been purchased with a project in mind. I rarely, if ever have purchased fabric just to build my stash. My brain just doesn't think like that...too bad it doesn't think the same way about shoes! All the fabric I have is leftover from a project, purchased for a project and then I changed my mind or it's been designated to a project I haven't started yet. About 3 years ago, Scott finished our basement. He did a wonderful job! He has a Michigan State Spartan area with cabinetry and mini kitchenette.
That is the infamous window.
Just to give you an idea of the space, these cabinets are 12" deep. Here is my stash...
Scott and I came up with an excellent compromise. He has a Michigan State Spartan area with Spartan bar stools and I have a place to store my fabric!! :-)
