    Recently moved back to Maine after living in Calif for 37 years. I took quilting in Home Economics in my high school years 1978-1980 and have fallen in love all over again this past winter. Wow... what a difference 30 years makes... fascinated with fabric cutters and mats compared to pinning pattern pieces and cutting with ordinary scissors from years past. Just finished my first quilt in 30 years, crafting a King size quilt for my mother just in the knick of time for Christmas and have sewn two more quilt tops in the past month.... happy to say "I'm hooked."

    Welcome from North Central PA.
    Interestingly enough, my DH and I spent some time in Damariscotta several years ago when we spent our vacation in New England. We stayed at a camp ground at Pemaquid Point. It is a beautiful area. When we asked for directions to Pemaquid Point we were told to go to Damariscotta and turn right (I think it was right). Small world, huh?

    Not really... we are in for a big storm tomorrow. 12-16 inches Wednesday, but will provide a great day for pjs and my sewing machine!

    very small world! Pemaquid lighthouse is beautiful and Maine is a great vacation destination. Not much goes on in the winter months, but it passes quickly with a few quilting projects. Let me know if you ever get up this way again.

    thank you... I guess you guys got a bit of snow today too. We're in for 12-16 inches tomorrow. I like your penquin icon... so appropriate.

    No, not really. We're expecting 12-16 inches tomorrow. My brother-in-law lives in Newark, OH and says they're getting "ice"

    are you getting any snow?

    Have you guys thawed out? I was in Atlanta a couple of weeks ago for the America's Mart and Atlanta was "stunned" by the snow storm. It was a bit comical being a "mainer" and understanding what "snow" really means. Hope you are back to normal.
