...and boy are my arms tired!

I have been machine quilting all day, and boy are my arms tired! I definitely need to get some of those quilting gloves to help hold the fabric. Anyway, it is not nearly as scary as I thought it would be. I can tell this is going to be a whole new outlet for me!

Of course, I had a devoted audience:

My happy boy (his hair is growing in blond!!)
Wilbur has a talent of finding the most comfortable seat in the house:
Back to the grindstone!

Your quilting looks great. I know it can be so tiring on your arms. And your little boy and Wilbur are adorable.

Hi Jennifer!

Sorry that it has taken me FOREVER to reconnect with you! I have posted my photos and they just reminded me of how special you made me feel! I love everything!

You have gotten quite good with you machine quilting! I do a pattern similar to that on all of my quilts. I also have an addiction to Shangri-La fabric!

BTW- I will be sending you a special surprise later on this week!

HUGS from my heart to yours!

Hi Jennifer!
Your quilting is great! ( . . . & oh yes - do get the grippy gloves. . . it will make quilting so much easier!) I can imagine how tired your arms (& shoulders) are. . .! What a trooper you are!
Your 'boys' are both adorable!
xo, Bren

Your quilting looks great....just happened to find your blog today and have enjoyed "meeting" you. My husband retired from AF two years ago.
