Post Hello from MA


My name is Tammie and I'm pretty new to this scene. Over the last year I've bought a lot of quilting supplies, material, books, watched a lot of youtube videos, read a lot, took one quilting class that consisted of 4 sessions, two of which I missed due to an illness and a member there that had an suppressed immune system d/t CA. I did get a baby quilt top finished thanks to the instructor and a lot of help from some other members. I have several projects in the works, ...UFO's lol. I am overwhelmed with emails of different blogs that I've signed up to....I spend more time trying to sort through those rather than practicing 1/4" stitch, new blocks, etc., trying to weed through those and unsubscribe to the one's that aren't the right fit for me....I"m really not experienced and there are a lot of things there that I can be exposed to but don't think I need to do or even attempt to do yet... (still working on that perfect 1/4" stitch remember).

I'm also caring for an elderly gentleman 5 days a week, he's pretty sick, suppose to be 4 hours a day,..that gets very overwhelming as well. Leaves me exhausted most days. I worry about him. That's an understatement.

The first thing that I learned and remembered since starting last Feb. was "Measure twice, cut once" I've managed to cut myself twice, the second time ending with 7 stitches from the ER to my thumb. I had not heard about gloves I could wear while using the rotary cutter lol!
It's been a great beginning of a new journey I hope I get to travel a long while. I am happy I somehow in a search for something, came across this quilting board. I've never belonged to a board of any type and not sure how it works. So, I'll be the fly on the wall, watching, reading, and eventually chiming in...

Happy Stitchin' to ya'll
