Hang in There, Baby!

Anybody remember those posters? I have no idea why it was always a cat!
Anyway, that's what I'm trying to do. I've been wrestling that twin quilt under my sewing machine and "gettin' her done!"
Let me tell you, if you've never wrestled a larger quilt under a regular sewing machine arm, it's an event! My shoulders hurt, my arms hurt; I definitely went to bed tired last night! I did figure out that my chair was sitting a little low...about halfway through the quilting! Once I moved it up, it really helped my shoulders relax. Thank goodness for adjustable office chairs! I'm hoping to get this finished today so I can post it in WiP tomorrow. Back to work!

Absolutely! There is light at the end of that tunnel.

I know exactly how you feel! Definitely finding the right height of your chair is important. One thing that really helped me out was finally getting the gidget table so I had a flush surface for quilting. That made a world of difference.

hang in there girl!! Yes, quilting a monster quilt in a small machine is an experience to remember. Or maybe to forget... ;) Can't wait to see it!

I had a poster with an orange cat hanging on a tree branch in my bedroom when I was growing up. I loved it!
