Default Greetings from ireland, new to this forum

Hello new friends-to-be.

I am excited to find this forum, I do a lot of craft work but am currently spending a lot of time quilting. I am irish, living in Ireland, but quilting and hand work in general is not huge here, so there are few of my friends who do this kind of thing, which is a shame. Quilting bees and working alongside friends is such a joy.

About me, I am 52(today!) with a lovely husband and a wonderful adult daughter. I sew, paint, make art, do some bookbinding, make jewellery, love to cook for friends.

I am a year out of breast cancer treatment and feeling well and looking forward to many happy years of living. I read a lot-(scifi, fantasy, non-fiction) have travelled extensively, Harry Potter fan, Dr. Who, star trek-Ok I am a bit of a nerd.

My first quilt was made when I was about 18, I tend to think I have reasonable skills, then I look at some of the amazing stuff online-wow! Recently learned how to do foundation paper piecing, which was fun, of course I jumped completely in at the deep end, but it went well. It was made for an online craftswap and the recipient liked it. I love craft swapping and can't wait to make some new friends here.

Howdy & welcome from Texas. Happy Birthday to you & congratulations on the completion of your breast cancer treatment. Praying for a long, healthy life for you from here on out. It's good to have you as a new member on this quilting board. I would love to see some of the things you have made (quilting & non quilting).

Welcome from western NY and happy quilting

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

Hello edelc, from someone in your time zone. I love the interesting and useful conversations on here but find that I can use a lot of my early morning catching up! Nothing to rush out for these days though, so why not?

A belated Happy Birthday and good wishes for your continued good health.
