I did it!!

I bought the machine and set up! I am now the proud new owner of a Husqvarna Viking Mega Quilter with Cruise Control and an Inspira machine quilting frame! They didn't have any more at the shop so they have to order it and they said that it should be there in a week. I am very excited, but this also means that I am going to have to do a lot in the basement to get it ready for my new toy! It will probably mean a couple of nights spent in the basement cleaning and moving things around. But for the frame and machine, I can handle that! Plus, since I am cleaning to make room, I think it totally counts as hours spent towards quilting for my OHAD challenge!
