Real Happiness

Good Morning sweet friends, have missed chatting but have been reading your blogs. We have had some sickness in my family and it is pretty serious, my Father in love from my first marriage has had a very serious stroke, and I ask for prayers, he is in his 90's but has such a strong love for his family and he is fighting for them each day. I am so lucky that I still have the love of that wonderful family.

Now to my new happiness-----drum roll please---yesterday I purchased a Gammill Classic Plus long arm quilt machine!!!!Have I lost my mind, well yes, I still am living the thoughts of 20 some years ago, can I still do this, well yes I think I can, and I will!!! I have always dreamed of owning such a machine with bells and whistles but the one I had before was a Singer that had been converted into a short arm and when that hit the dust we got a Juki and used it till it was no longer serviceable. so here I go again. I tried it out and fell instantly in love! The only BIG problem is the loading is so different but a few tries and I will get it (I hope).

I went to Va. to see one of my granddaughters graduate and got to spend some time with my son . It was a  happy time for us. Katie will be leaving for Auburn to go to school and her brother is in school there and I believe he graduates in December. And here in my home town my sweet Faith will begin her Sr. year in High School, we are all so excited for her to see what the next chapter will be. The rest of the sweet Grands  in Ohio are doing wonderful,I am a lucky Granny!!!

I must get off this computer and do a few chores and then off to my Happy Place and work on a quilt. Enjoy your day and many blessings to you.

Hugs, Marie

Very exciting news! Sounds like you have a history of getting a lot of use out of your quilting machines!

Way to go! I'm so excited for you! That's a serious, big girl machine! Can't wait to see what you do with it! Does that mean you'll be quilting for others again? You're a braver woman than I am--but more power to you! I may have some work for you--I can't seem to get anything done myself. Sorry you couldn't stop by for a visit on your trip to VA. We need to figure out a way to get together again. R went to J'ville last weekend to visit his brother. Maybe that means it's my turn for a road trip before long...

Congratulations on your new machine, how exciting! I can't believe Faith will be a senior this year, time just flies by so quickly. Ola still has two years to go since they do 13 years in Norway. Sigve is in the Army now, trying out to be a paratrooper for his mandatorty year in the military. Kristine just finished her Bachelors degree in Geology, and will start working on her Master degree in August. Hope to see you again this fall maybe!
