Hi y'all. I'm Carol, but go by rural01. I'm a retired news writer now living in the Arkansas Ozarks. Having moved here from Chicago, my beautiful surroundings have made me feel totally rejuvenated. Quilting feels brand new to me even though I have made about seven quilts in about the last ten years. Finding this board and completing a long-time project has given me new inspiration and interest. My head is racing with ideas for new projects. I want to try the block of the month. Already, some of the photos of quilts contained on this board have inspired me. So, what a great way to start off a new year with a thimble on my finger and a needle in my hand.
