    Hello everyone, I am from Northern NY, I have been logging on and reading everything on here for a couple weeks and thought it was time to join in. I am so happy to read all the interesting posts that make me laugh and think, "at least I am not the only one." I have been sewing for many, many years and always wanted to make a quilt, but 10 years ago was diagnosed with RA, and it is the worst in my hands, it kept me from sewing for a few years, but then two years ago when my oldest was having our first grandchild, I knew I had to make the little one a quilt, and bibs, and burp clothes, and some taggies, and etc., etc... Well, it was well worth the pain, and I have been sewing like mad every since, I will try and post the first quilt I made, which was appliqued with bugs. I don't know if I will every be able to make a large quilt, but that is OK, I have two more grandbabies due this summer, so now I have to make 2 more, and of course more bibs, burp clothes, play mats, etc... that will keep me busy for a few months.

    Welcome from Nebraska! You will have lots of fun here.

    I use those gloves that have no finger tips in them. I also use a lotion with Capsaicin in it for the pain. Doing dishes by hand in HOT water before sewing also helps.
