C'mon Along...

She's here! Sundance has arrived!! I could barely sleep last night at the very thought, I felt like one of the children in the Disney World commercial exclaiming: "we're too excited to sleep"! And now, the long awaited day, has finally dawned and this is what she looks like sitting in the studio. It's more than a little overwhelming. I'm inviting you to come along with me as I journey, baby- step by baby-step into this wonderful world of long arm quilting. I have no idea how long the path will be, or the twists and turns that await me along the way. I do know where I hope to end up, I'll just keep looking forward, with my eye on the goal. You may need to remind me, at times, to do just that! OK, ready? Here we go; the time is upon us.For the next month or so I will be signing off with a stress-reducing "tip", or discipline, there are 35. These came to me in the form of a numbered list, in an e-mail, I decided to separate them and include them here; they are each of great value individually.

1. Pray
Life is Good!

Congratulations on Sundance's arrival! May she live a long and happy life in your studio, providing many hours of joy and fulfillment. Good luck!

Yes, praying should definitely be #1.

Hugs!

Wow! How exciting! Somewhere I missed the post about your getting her so I was really surprised! Make sure to record all your details because this is probably as close to a long arm as I'm ever going to get!
