Go Postal's sister did a little research before getting me a birthday present this year. She consulted with her MIL who is also a quilter and look what they came up with. I can't wait to use this on retreats. I hate having to unthread my machine (at least partially) to fill a bobbin in the middle of a project. Now this little guy will do it for me. I am thinking I can leave it by the cutting table and we can all use it! Now if they can just engineer a machine that feeds its bobbin from a giant spool of thread......we would rarely have to stop. But I am guessing that it must be hard or the folks at Bernina would have already come up with that to add to their new $9K 830.

Go Postal won't usually get this close to the edge. He doesn't like heights or snakes. I freak over mice.
Saturday was beautiful and not very humid so there were tons of folks making this hike. Salem Stitcher and another Mike from the ski club (who snapped this picture) joined us. It was clear enough that we could see the Winston skyline off in the distance.

The top photo is the one I took with Go Postal almost four years ago...we saw this barn up near Todd where we often ride bikes and he liked the style, especially the tall window over the door. His barn has grown a little bigger than this one and will have sheds on the sides but still have this feel. As we were googling about the other NC Quilt barns we came across this second photo. Looks like they have added a Star of Bethlehem block (and unfortunately covered the window). We designed a Log Cabin block for his new barn that will sit centered above the garage doors and below the window.
