I have been on this board everyday for a while and realized that I never introduced myself. I am currently a 99er. I have been unemployed for over 2 years. I live in a small town and the bigger towns want people who live in their area. My DH and I have adjusted to our income. I no longer receive any unemployment. I love quilting, but I have OCD. I have to make sure everything is in order before I enjoy my hobbies. I am now in a position that I have more time in my hands and begun to study my Brother Innov-is 1000. I am learning the embroidery part. I am also studying how to use the EQ 5. I had to buy the simplified book because I just get lost. I have done several quilts -more memorial than pleasure. I do my best. I am first generation to make quilts. So, my family think they are the best in the whole world. I have done hand-quilted pillows and runners and machine-sewing quilts for loved ones. I am getting so many ideas from all of you. Being that I am alone most of the time, I get excited going to this board and feel the commodore of fellow quilters. I use the bookmark tab all the time. The bad news is that I am having surgery on my left shoulder in two weeks and I will be out of commission between 3 weeks to 3 months! After that, it is my right shoulder. So, I look at the bright side and will use the time to read and learn the techniques before I start quilting again. My prayer is that I will become as creative as all of you. God bless and I look forward to reading your topics.
