found your forum two days ago as I needed help and boy, I sure got it!
As you can tell from my nick I am a grandma (two grandsons 3y and 7mt) and therefore also a mama (two daughters and a son, 28, 24, 26.)
I live with my hubby in basle, switzerland.
I (used to) know your country quit well as we lived from 1984 to 86 in Santa Barbara. Our youngest daughter was born there and after our stay there we travelled with a caravan and the three young ones for 7 month across canada and the usa. Best time in my life! Cant even say which area I loved the most, seen so many great places.
I was sewing more or less my whole life and just a couple of weeks ago I accidently came to patchwork and was hooked from the first minute.
Look now for hours at your great quilts and will sure bug you with lots of questions.
greetings from switzerland
