The "What Was I Thinking" WIP

Sooooooo...I might have accidentally purchased a longarm machine...okay, maybe not so much accidentally but more like on a whim.  Now I'm in:  WHAT THE HECK HAVE I DONE mode.  Valerie over at Purple Boots and Pigtails decided to upgrade and purchased a new machine, so was selling her old machine and frame.  I've always dreamed of having a longarm, but never really thought that it would happen due to the cost and never thought that my quilting would progress to the point that I would need or want a longarm.

Introducing Wee Wiggler:

 Still not sure why she's called Wee Wiggler.  Val:  We need the story on the name.

Thanks to Mr. Purple Boots and son for assisting with the delivery of Wee Wiggler.

I'm still working to ensure that she is level before a test run.  Hoping that between Nephew's basketball playoff games this weekend, I can manage to complete a quilt top so I can play with Wee Wiggler.

**Giveaway Alert**
Come back for a visit on Friday for a sponsored giveaway from Sew Sisters Quilt Shop.  In case you didn't know, Sew Sisters is a Canadian quilt store dedicated to all things quilty.  They offer great rates on shipping, with orders over $100 shipping for free within Canada.

Although not an actual quilt WIP, still linking up with:
