Little Miss Lenni

I am so excited this week I have been on vacation from work and have been having an amazingly wonderful time quilting. I have adopted a new baby, her name is Little Miss Lenni!! Here is her picture, She arrived on Friday August 22nd at 9:30 am. I was able to get her all set up by Saturday morning and have been having a wonderful time getting acquanted this week. It just wouldn't have been right to leave my new baby HOME ALONE!!
So, I took all this week off from work to be able to help her adjust to her new home. We have been getting along famously,and here is our first accomplishment together. I had to do some rearranging of my studio to fit her in but we were able to move things around and give her some elbow room to play. I practiced on 3 or 4 quilt sandwiches and then decided to jump in and tackle a real quilt. Many thanks go to my friend Lynne Turner Liro who came over and taught me how to use the long arm rulers and got me started on this quilt. She is a very good teacher!! Need a quilt custom quilted visit her webpage at:
Still 4 more days left on my vacation so I will be busy, busy, busy do my Practice, Practice, Practice, until I have to go back to work again. Have a blessed day. Jeanne

Congratulations with your Lenni! Your first quilt is great!!!

Good for you, Jeanne! And your first effort looks really nice. It was good that you could take a big block of time to "bond" with your newest member of the family. I look forward to seeing your quilts in person. Enjoy the rest of your time learning how to create even more beautiful works of art.

Miss Lenni was delivered on my grandson's birthday. Congratulations. I understand that the learning curve is steep, but the rewards are great.

I sure don't mind the learning curve if I can get the results that alot of the others seem to be getting on their machines. It is going very well so far. I am encouraged for sure.
