The little escape....






Hooray for us! We managed to escape the usual for two days and get away. Since our son is home and job hunting, he agreed to take care of Mom for us so we could take a breather. We loaded up the camper and headed up to the lake. Its only 30-40 minutes away, but makes all the difference in the world. The first night we were alone, just the peaceful lake noises (its a wonderfully quiet campground). The second night and following day we were joined by our granddaughter.

In the last two weeks I have quilted two tops, one is finished, the second needs binding and label. When I can get photos taken, I will post those. I'm trying to get around to cutting pieces for the next top and hope I can get some time today for that. I would also like to chose which top to quilt next (I have several waiting) and what kind of design to use on it. I recently upgraded from the Juki to an HQ16 on my frame and I am just loving it!! being able to quilt larger areas in one pass is fantastic, as is not having to limit the size of your pattern because the throat gets filled with rolled quilt and will gradually diminish the amount of area you can quilt.

That is such a cute little camper. Glad you got some relaxing time in. The HQ16 looks like a dream come true for home quilters who don't need/want a full size long arm. Congratulations on the upgrade.

Gail, the Aliner is adorable. I just love tiny campers.
