Open Letter to Ole Betsy

Dear Ole Betsy,

I apologize for being so neglectful of you. It had been nine weeks since we spent time together. To top it off, I left you a mess. Threads caught in Velcro. Improperly wound bobbins cluttered in your tray. Spools of thread laying on your back ledge. The paper of a pantograph collecting mold (ewww) from the humidity.   I did cover the machine, but dust accumulated in your rails and bars.

Shameful really. 

After everything you did for me last year, especially in the ninth hour before Christmas.....

Can you ever forgive me?

Were the hours I spent cleaning you and the area today payment enough? 

Handiquilter Avante 18" (affectionately called Ole Betsy)

If not, I hope that the six tops awaiting for your glorious magic sways you. 

I also have a surprise for you!

 Look at what I got for Valentine's Day!  Microhandles for you!!!!
Look!  He even cut a picture of them in a heart for the card!
Here's to you!  *Cheers*

I've missed you, dear old girl!
May our year be as productive as last year!!!

Just Call Me A Plotter

Here's the deal.  I am a plotter.  I am methodical.  I look at all the angles.  I consider all the options.  I take FOREVER to to plan and plot.

  However, when it is time to execute?   I work lightening fast. 
I quilt that way too.  I spend months, even years planning quilt patterns and idea.  

So do not fear. When you see me "whip a quilt out" in a weekend or even a week.  I promise. It took me FOREVER to get there.

This pattern is one you are familiar with.  I am sorry if it disappoints, but the methodical planner just had to give to try out the Craftsy store with a free pattern that is already done.   Now that I have it set up, I can't see why I can't just finish the quilt patterns I have in the works!

Are you a slow planner and quick executioner or are you the opposite?  I'd love to hear!
