Thread: Better say 'Hello' instead of just reading - not a 'lurker'!

    My screen name 'FlyBreit' is a combination of FlyLady (if you don't know her, check her out!) and Mary Engelbreit - love her art!

    Smack dab in the middle of Missouri, started sewing as a child, quit as a working mother of young children (duh!).

    As my elderly mother's health was fading (I saw her every day, cooked, cleaned, did the Dr thing), knew I would need something to fill the void after she passed. Decided I would go back to sewing.

    Never dreamed about quilting (still have a UFO from the mid-70's that I started on my grandmother's frame) but quickly became addicted!

    Love this forum!!

    Welcome. Your story sounds a bit familiar. Somehow, the stitching seems to GIVE, both to me and from me. I am by default, a giver, aren't you? Blessings, Ruth

    Thank you so much for the warm welcome.

    Yes, the stitching gives comfort as I sew and joy as I give!
