    coming out of lurkdom

    G'day everyone , (that should give you a clue where I am from , LOL )
    I have been lurking here for quite sometime , and thought I had better poke my head up and say hello.

    I love to make scrappy quilts ( that way I do not have to think too much about matching things ) ,and most of them are given away to foster care agencies for children who have been placed with no possesions.

    but....if if I do a workshop.. I will chose a color story out of my comfort zone, which has given me a huge variety of colored quilts
    My friends will often comment 'that does not go with your house' ... does not matter.. makes me happy.

    I am self confessed a fabric hoarder, and have more than I will use in another 3 lifetimes.... but.. again..
    makes me happy .. and way cheaper than psychiatrist fees !!
    cheers from Aus

    A warm welcome from North Central Washington, USA! I think it is great you give many of your quilts away to foster care agencies.

    Welcome from California. YOU are the person who needs to be pleased with your quilting, although I confess to a desire to see what you do.

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
