So much to learn

The Jewel longarm is going to be tuned up by the shop next week while Mom and I get some lessons on longarm basics. I/we jammed the bobbin and I want a professional diagnosis and repair if needed. :( Needless to say, frustration set it but hasn't overwhelmed us!!

I haven't even pulled the bobbin winder out of the case and need to learn how to use it. The frame is huge and I think the quilt is loaded right but we will get all the basics at our complimentary lessons that come with the purchase of the machine. Then watch out world, Mom and I will be quilting!!!

In the meantime, I am still making the same block I started last week for the CVDQ. I counted and it has 72 pieces. No wonder it is taking me so long!! I hope to have it completed tonight and be photo ready.

This would be frustrating. I am glad that you have your mom to be doing this with, so you're not feeling overwhelemed!! And have someone to bounce ideas off of!!
I hope hubbby has passed his stone and is doing better - or if not yet, that it will be done soon!!!

That is a block with alot of pieces! Wow!! Have fun with it - I want to see it done now!! ?Curious to what blk it is....
