    I am new to quilting, but have been sewing since jr. high school. I have always admired those who created the quilts and actually used them.

    Since having my 2 boys (ages 4 and almost 7) has become my new "full time job" (I worked almost 30 years in the construction trades and then computer support -- and yes I am that old!!!), I have had to redefine my idea of what to do for enjoyment.

    In October 2009, I was diagnosed with MS. My world has been turned every which way. Fatigue, depression, mood swings, numbness, forgetting things has become the new "normal" for me. I find that I have some issues at times threading needles, seeing clearly or concentrating BUT the one thing I have realized is that quilting/sewing keeps me happy! One day at a time is all I can think about now.

    I am currently working on my first and second quilts at the same time. The first is a jelly roll and the second is a t-shirt quilt. I'll post pix as soon as I can.

    This board is totally awesome! When looking for clues as to what I am doing wrong or if I need reviews on machines, etc., I always sit and read and somehow find the answer -- my insomnia finally has a place!

    Quilting is healing... no joke. If I couldn't sew and quilt I don't now what I would do.
    This is a wonderful palce to come to.

    Welcome to the board from Illinois. We have other folks who have challenges due to physical problems. I'm sure they will have tips for you along the way.
