Frenchy (aka Handi-Quilter Avante) is fixed; I expect him to be home early this week. During his absence, I have been piecing more quilts on the Janome, so I'll have plenty to catch up on when he gets back home. I have missed working on the Long Arm, but also during this interim, I've done some research and found a handy little gadget to ensure good tension without all the guesswork. It is a little pricey but just estimating all the time I'll save with guessing and re-trying and sampling the tension before I can even get to the real quilting, I've decided it is definietly worth the extra $$$.
I've also learned that if you wnat to leave a comment on this blog, register as 'anonymous' and then I think you'll still have to 'verify' with all the crazy alpha/numbericcal combinations, but your comments will get posted.
I appreicate all the visits and hope you continue to check in often. So, more quilt pictures will be visible by next weekend.
