Flexing My Muscles

I spent a couple of hours today, just doing the kind of free motion exercises that I have my students do on their machines when I teach my free motion class, only here it takes a different set of muscles, & my quilting isn't as pretty as it is when I push a quilt around on my Bernina.
The arm muscles are actually sore tonight.
But I had fun doodling with a variegated thread.
It's not great yet, but it's a start. Tomorrow I'll put a real quilt on & start quilting some comfort quilts for the Anchorage Log Cabin Quilt Guild.

Looks so good to me, and the sore arms are a good sign, you are building some new muscle. You are going to great work on your new plaything (tool?).
