    I've reading this board for quite a while now, but I've never said HI. I started quilting about 12 years ago, but haven't done anything for about 2 years. I'm in a slump and need to get going again. I have a large stash and plenty of patterns, so now I just need a kick in the you know what. I look at all the pictures and hope to someday soon put one up that I just finished. I live outside of Raleigh in a subdivision. My DH and I are retired and we have 2 furbabies that are very spoiled

    HELLO!!!

    I find that the best inspiration for me it to look at the other quilts that people post pictures of :-) It was SUCH an amazing thing to see SOOOO many people with so many words of encouragement and I knew that I wanted to hear those things about mine. So I was able to jump right into my stash :-) I know you can to!!

    Thank you for all the encouragement. I have a rail fence on my design board, but I'm not real happy with it. I may take it down and start on something else to get me over the hump. I have a fq of blues and yellows I want to make a Yellow Brick Road out of. I should get that all around, but I'm also in spring cleaning mode right now. And I hate, hate, hate spring cleaning. Guess I'll have to see what wins out, cleaning or sewing.

    HI from Washington State. Glad your going to get to quilting again. If you've been looking at peoples pictures here Im sure thats been an inspiration to you. I get into slumps too. I think all quilters do. I keep looking at magazines and quilt sites to get me going. I always think "begin, the rest is easy".
    Glad your a doggy lover. I love Yorkies. :thumbup:
