2 Days in a Row

I once had to attend a training session on organization for the job I was in at the time.  We were taught if you were to do something for 21 days in a row it would become a habit.  So I am on day 2 and we will see if I can make it to 21 days.  If I do, I think a giveaway would be in order, don't you?  So if you see I am slipping give me a nudge in the right direction!  lol

So I ended yesterday's post leaving you hanging.  I don't want to leave you hanging any longer.

I purchased a new to me quilting toy about a week and a half ago.  I had two quilts to tack before I could even think about my new toy.  Wednesday night after that second quilt was tacked and finished I couldn't help myself but to start putting it together.  It wasn't until last night that I actually had it together and working correctly, I think.  No, it wasn't one of the Accuquilt GO Cutters that everyone but me is winning.  No, it wasn't a new quilting frame and machine.  Well, here it is!

You are probably saying, so what is that?  It looks like a new machine and frame to me.  My new toy is actually the carriage.  You see that carriage also links in to the computer sitting out of view.  Do you get it now?  I have computerized my Grace frame and Janome 1600 with the PC Quilter.  Last night I actually stitched out a little something.  I would show you what I stitched, but the photos are still on my camera.  I know, why don't I just download them on my computer.  Why?  Because I can't find the silly cord that will allow me to do it!  How great is that!  I have been taking photos with my cell phone so I might just have to keep doing that.  lol

Anyway, so that is the new toy and I am now off to turn that baby on and start playing!

Hope you have some great plans for the Labor Day weekend!  See you tomorrow!

I don't understand what this thing is. Will the quilting be controlled by the computer?

Rhonda, you're not the only one on this planet who is NOT winning a GO!
Despite the number of times I've entered - I'm still GO!-less

Hugs & ♥♥♥s,

Okay, Rhonda, you know that I am computer-stupid and have absolutely no quilting what exactly does your machine do? It looks complicated to me, but you make it sound like fun! So I'm with Pat...find that cord so we can see the stitching! :o)
