Up, But Not Running ....yet!

DH and I spent the day yesterday setting up the frame, this is the table top at 2 metres, with another one metre extension behind it should I need to use it,
Here she is, nearly ready to go, my Pfaff Grand Quilter fits perfectly...she slides on the track beautifully...as smooth as silk.... Isn't she a pretty colour, now to get something to practice on!


This is the mess on the other side of the room, plus more stuff shoved into the sewing room ...where am I going to put it all!...DS said he'll take the spare bed and put in in his spare room, the two beds zip togther to make a king size bed, so I really need to keep the spare half.
The other stuff will have to go in plastic storage tubs...

Oh, I have been doing a bit of hand-quilting in the evening on section 8 of Dear Jane, that's nearly done then on to the last section, before the borders.

Take care, happy stitching..♥

Oh wow..this is amazing...I can't wait for you to get it up and running...I am so anxious to hear about how it works....I wanted a frame too when I recently bought my new Bernina...but I spent so much on the machine I thought it wise to re-thing the frame...maybe later...after I see how good yours is....!!
