    Happy Holidays! I found this board last night and got addicted to chatting online right away =) Seems like a great group of folks, I look forward to getting to know ya'll better and getting involved.

    I've been learning to quilt for about 10 years now. I haven't spent a lot of time with it, but have made a few quilts. I still would like to learn how to machine applique and actually machine quilt my tops (I still pay someone to do that for me).

    Welcome from TN, Sweetness. I am relatively new here, too. Aren't they all great? There seems to be someone here who knows the answer to most any question we can come up with...what a blessing!

    Hi and welcome to the board from Lubbock. We retired here about 2.5 years ago after living in the Spring/Woodlands area for 25 years. I love Lubbock but I do miss Houston, except for the humidity. That I don't miss even a little.

    It's been SO hot and humid the last few days too. I HATE it! It actually snowed here two weeks ago...it was so fun! I've been to Lubbock once (I've only lived in TX 13 years) I actually learned that dust storms and tumbleweed are real when I was there =)

    My kitty (Emile or Little Mr. as he is known around here) is Himalayan -- half Persian, half Siamese. And yes, he is spoiled rotten :roll: :roll:

    He's beautiful. We used to have a tonkinese...she was such a talker!!! My russian blue loves my sewing room but I don't let animals in there because of the fur (it's the only room they can't use), so she'll sit outside the door and talk away putting her little paws underneath to get my attention. It's funny how they can ignore you until YOU go do something then they want your undivided attention :)

    Welcome from Illinois. My kitty, Nemo, has no interest in anything until I'm in that room, then everything is fascinating. Especially what I may have in my hand or that I'm working on. He can come into a room and you would think he'd never been there before!
