My longarm machine is in its new home.
I named her Wanda Joy, after my mother.
This used to be her bedroom when she would come to visit.
My next goal is put a few pictures I inherited from her on the walls.
She loved modern art and had the most eclectic collection.
Right now, I am just learning how to load the machine and do edge to edge quilting.
I pieced some simple quilt tops and will donate them to LINUS...a good way to use up stash.
I plan to take some classes soon on free motion quilting and ruler work.
This edge to edge stuff is very useful,
but I feel more like a computer operator than a quilter.

I am so thankful for projects like these on social media.
Without them, I think the anxiety and isolation would overwhelm me.
I said goodbye to my mother this year and
welcomed another grandchild.
The circle of life.
