When I worked on Stringtastic, I had a feeling that it would be the last quilt that I finished on my domestic sewing machine. Over the five long nights that I spent quilting it, I had visions of how much quicker it would be if I had a long arm machine.
I started doing some research and thought that it would be another decade before I could save enough money to buy a long arm machine. Even the used machines weren’t cheap, still I kept looking online, hoping for a good deal.
I found one that seemed promising, but when I contacted the woman she told me it had already been sold. BUT, would I be interested in another model, that was a bit smaller and half the price?!?
And so that’s how I came to be the mama of this baby.
Of course, they don’t make car seats for babies like this, so this is how my baby travelled home with me.
I’m calling her, “Gammie.” I’ve got her settled into her new home nicely.
I got a bit creative with moving things around my sewing studio so that there would still be room for a bed for when grandma visits.
