Oh Blessed Day!

Today was a 10! I hopped on the computer this morning to check the tracking on my longarm, which according to the tracking for the last week was due to be delivered Thursday the 14. Much to my surprise I was informed that it was on the truck out for delivery... Well I canceled my breakfast plans so I could be home for my baby.. and then I waited, and waited and waited, I paced, I fed the kids lunch, I paced some more, I sat and stared out the window, and I waited some more, the kids came home from school, I fed them snack and we all waited, we all stared out the window, Moms showed up and picked up kids, Dads showed up and picked up kids and then I waited a bit more! Finally at 4:25 p.m. the Fedex man drove past my house!!! YIKES then he backed up and came to the door, I signed for my delivery and we brought her in the house... Opened the box and there she was!
Stuart and I then spent the entire evening working on my "new and improved" set up. We didn't quite get finished, we did get the frame leveled, and the rear handles attached to the machine. Tonight we will be getting the encoder wheels put on and all of the cables run. Then I will get to load a test piece on and see how she runs. Tomorrow if all goes well I will put my red snappers on ( got a good deal on them from a nice lady I met online after a major Snafu with the Quilts on the Corner shop) Once that is done I will be back in business!
I can't wait to be able to quilt from my own home again, don't get me wrong, I love quilting over at the shop, but there is something to be said for finishing up dinner and going out to work on a quilt for a few hours before bed. I just sleep better! Plus I am more active, not sitting on my butt playing on the computer night after night.
I will post pictures after we are all set up and quilting!
I hope you all have a wonderful day.
