Helen, to answer your question, I'm getting an A1 Elite longarm machine. It's not as heavy as some of the others and apparently moves very easily because of the way the wheels are made. It has a 23" throat space which will be fantastic. Supposed to be here by the end of the week but we don't know exactly when.
I'm including some photos that I took in an attempt to capture texture in nature, and to try out my camera which I haven't spent much time with yet. I don't quite know what I'll use them for, but I'm thinking something connected with free form quilting and/or embroidery. I shall have to ponder this for a while longer (possibly even a year or two?) Any ideas for me?
