Hi. I'm new with message boards and really don't know what I'm doing, but this looks like fun. I live in north central Iowa and winter is marching in. Cold weather puts me in the mood to quilt so I have one set up in the living room. I have two daughters and 2 amazing grandsons (3 years old and 6years old) and they are so ready for Christmas. I just retired from teaching this year and am enjoying renewing old friendships. Family and friends are so important! I really look forward to meeting people on this message board and hearing about all your projects.
