I have come up on this board many times and have gotten very good information before but just know have decided to join. I have been quilting on and off for 10 years I usually do quilts for family but recently have jumped into donations. I do mostly hand quilting at the moment I'm so scared to do any free motion but hoping to learn down the line. I feel that hand quilting really relaxes me even when I have mess ups I don't try to stress to much. I have two children at home and also work as a sub at the schools here were I live. Oh, I also trying out some garment sewing for me and my children when I get the time. For the most part I try to stay motivated with the quilting podcast I listen to while sewing.
