I actually had the priviledge of meeting Mr.Flynn when I purchased my frame and he had one set up and it seemed sooooooo easy! Famous last words!
Four hours later, and I am so frustrated, I can not get the fabric to roll up on the rollers straight. I finally unsew the quilt from the fabric strips, remove the fabric strips from the rollers, and low and behold.......this is what I discover.....
The fabric that came with the kit was not cut straight! Now you would think I would have had sense enough to check that BEFORE I attached it to the rollers. I guess I was just too excited about getting it on so I could attach my quilts.
I must admit, I did wonder why my fabric was not centered on the roller - but it never ocurred to me to make sure it was the same width on each end.

I always liked this picture as I think it shows a little of his spunk and I think he looks so very handsome. But then, I always thought my Dad was a handsome man, with beautiful twinkling blue eyes.
The last few years have been difficult for him, confned to a bed or wheelchair due to Parkinsons Disease and Diabetes. He yearned to be in his flower beds and workshop and being confined was like a prison for him. Well he broke free of the chains on Friday, March 11 at 12:55 am. I had the blessing of being with him when he took that last breath and felt a great loss for myself and my family, but joy for my Dad in that is was finally set free.

This is my drawing in EQ7. I have already figured up my yardage and now just need to get the fabrics. I won't be able to start this until May, so I have time to work on the other projects some.
Wonder if I could finish hand quilting my Circus Stars by May???
The rest of this post is mostly for Stitchin Friends Quilt club, but you are welcome to follow along.
