I've been watching this forum site for several months and have loved it so I wanted to belong 'formally'.
I have been quilting for two years. I am also a cross stitcher. I'd go to quilting retreats that friends of mine put together and I'd always cross stitch while they quilted. They told me I'd get the bug but I'd just laugh.
Two years ago I got the bug! Just can't shake it now. :)
