I finished two king-sized quilt tops last year, even with everything I had going on (some years when it rains, it pours!!). I'm planning on quilting them on my regular sewing machine. I took the machine in for servicing because the bobbin kept slipping. It was working fine for a while, but it's acting up again. It looks like back to the shop again after I have my DH check to see if I reinserted the case incorrectly after cleaning the machine out--a distinct possibility; I'm used to a removable rotary bobbin system, and I can't quite get used to the drop-in variety (even after several years using this particular machine), so I might have been off in my reinsertion of the bobbin case after I cleaned the lint out of the machine. Thankfully, I do have my backup Bernina if all else fails!!
I'm also purging my sewing room a bit. We may or may not be making a cross-country move in the next 18-24 months, so I'm starting now. It's not a bad idea to purge, anyway. One thing I've discovered over the years is that the fabric stash actually comes in handy during a move. Fabric makes good packing material so nobody complains about having it around for that purpose!! Everything else is better kept at a minimum--less to move, especially from Nevada to the East Coast!! Next purge is the patterns and binders, but I need to give myself a break because all that bending, stretching and lifting (even though it wasn't heavy lifting) aggravated my shoulder and neck injuries.
