    with all the shootings and animal deaths and unemployment and turmoil I love to come to this board to hear what you all have to say and see what you've all been doing. (Can you say 'run-on' sentence?) This 'place' is a warm-fuzzy!!!

    That's why I come here too. It is a wonderful place to escape to for a while.

    Yes I agree. I was at an all day sew yesterday and did not know what had happened in Tucson until I came home and checked on my computer for email etc. Very sad indeed. Tragedy!

    I love it here too...so many of us are close in and share similar experiences - I find it a great place to encourage one another. Quilting has certainly been therapy for me, as I'm sure for all of you, just so neat to share this with all of you.

    Isn't it wonderful to have a place like this! I know that I was getting in a rut of work and home and getting pretty down about it and then I found this site and things are much better. I love the great folks here and would be lost without them. I've even learned how to keep up with the site and get things done. I check in here for 10 or 15 mins than go do some dishes and than back here and then off to fold clothes than back here then sew a few blocks and so on.

    I know! I've only been on here a short time, but it's great to be able to check in and see what everyone's doing. Like talking to a friend on the phone....So many topics and so able to relate.

    I think the important thing for me from this board is that we have people who hear us when we need listening to, who help when we need help, and resolve the problems we have in quilting (and other things) that sometimes seem unsolvable. It is a great place to come and visit for whatever we need. It seems as if no matter how big or little the situation, someone has experienced it, too.

    This beats turning on the news anyday - I know we need to keep up with the goings-on in our world today - but....... it is very depressing to hear one bad thing after another every day - just so good to read positive input on this site! Keep up the good work gals,,, and guys too! I'd be lost without this site to start my day.

    That is one beautiful pup, the way he looks at the camera reminds me of my Susie Q. She was a germanS./Collie mix and wieghted 100 lbs when grown. Just a big dog, and colored like a collie with big head and ears. She was my guardian angel too. had her nine years and still miss her. People were afraid of her untill I introduced them and then she just loved them to death.LOL Kids came to visit Susie not me.LOL She loved cats too and thought she was mommy to any cat that was around, Washing and fussing over them like a nanny.
