I confess - I have lurked for several months now. I love this board. I read all the messages and feel like I actually know so many of you. I live in Long Beach MS. I have only been quilting since I retired in 2007. I am so addicted. I belong to a quilt club and this year I am president of my quilt guild. I just wanted to say thanks to all of you who are so loving and kind. Your comments are uplifting.
