    Greetings from South Africa

    Hello All,

    My name is Lisa and I reside in a town called Centurion, in Pretoria.
    I work full time outside the house. I've been married for 21years.
    I have 2 kids, a boy (eldest) who is now 23 and a daughter who is currently 15.
    I also have two furbabies.

    I started about 18mths / 2yrs ago with teaching myself with the help of the internet to piece together blocks. I do not do this everyday, but around about twice a week for roughly 15 to 30 minutes only. Too many other things to do as well.

    My DH is a wonderful man who indulges my hobbies.

    I have 2 sewing machines (an Elna 2006 and a Janome 8077). I have the permanent use of my mothers overlocker (serger) which I have yet to figure out how to use. My stash is currently able to fit on one shelf (if I had a shelf) or in a small 25litre clear plastic tub (I think they are called rubbermaids in the USA).

    I am too POSITIVE to be doubtful, too OPTIMISTIC to be fearful and way to DETERMINED to be defeated.

    Welcome to the QB from Pennsylvania, USA. Any amount of time spent with fabric is good time. Send out a big thank you to your DH for understanding the importance of hobbies. Please post some pictures of you work as you can. I would love to see some.
