I have 'rejoined' this message board. I am from wet Minnesota (will it ever quit raining?). I am 79 yrs. old, a retired RN, am a new widow, raised 6 children (the oldest 2 have passed away), have 16 grandchildren and 5 1/2 gr. grandchildren (the oldest is in the navy), and have made them all 2 quilts. I love machine embroidery and am now incorporating embroidered blocks in my quilt tops. At present I am turning Jerry's workshop into an extention of my sewing area. This is involving a lot of painting - just don't know where to quit. I'm eager to get it completed so my BabyLock Tiara quilting machine can be delivered and I can start learning how to use it.
