    Greetings from England

    Hello everyone
    I'm new to quilting after becoming addicted in June. Since then I've been working on a sampler lap quilt as a first project with my sights clearly set on a lovely Jane Austen style quilt when I've finished this - amongst others of course! I've got my fabric for the JA style quilt already - it's so exciting!

    My other hobbies are cross stitch, tapestry and knitting. Wish there were enough hours in the day to do everything.

    Bye for now.

    Welcome from New York.
    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.

    Welcome from Tampa, Florida, USA. I was in the Air Force 20 years ago and stationed at RAF Alconbury just outside of Peterborough. I look forward to visiting again as a civilian. Good luck with your quilting journey. Lots of great advice and inspiration here on the board.

    If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Then quit. There's no point in being a damn fool about it.

    Hi jjsnacks. Couldn't help but notice you are from Corse. We've got friends in Corse Lawn. Is that near you?
