    Hi Ya'll, southern gal here

    Just found your site and thought I'd try it out. I'm new to quilting. Had a lady from church teach me about a year ago but recently found out she had left out a few important details so I'm having to relearn several things not to mention I have to find someone who can teach me beyond the basics. Have joined up with my local quilt shop so should do well there. I've finished 2 quilts and a table runner. Have 3 other projects I'm in the middle of and one that I'm going to start next week. After competing in a jelly roll race I realized that I love pre-cut fabric and will be using a lot of it in the near future I think. I homeschooled my children until 2 years ago when they graduated. They are now in college and doing well. Dd has one more year and will graduate with a degree in dance and religious studies. Ds in majoring in psychology and Information Technology and is in ROTC. Both go to same school. I'm in the process of renewing my RN license. Don't know if I'll go back to work or just volunteer at a local medical clinic here in town. Up until last year I predominately scrapbooked but since kids are out of house that has slowed down considerably and I'm finding I'm replacing it with quilting. It can get tedious at times but I love the finished product. Don't know if I'll ever be able to do some of the intricate designs I've seen here but I know I'll have fun.

    Welcome, NCannie! This is a great place to spend a lot of time. I have found everyone to be so helpful and I just love it here.
    I just pulled my daughter out to homeschool a few weeks ago, we are having such a blast and she is learning so much more than she thought she had "already covered". LoL! She has been in public schools since kindergarten so this was difficult for her at first, but she is starting to really enjoy UNschooling as a 9th grader.
