    Hello everyone! I'm soooo glad I found this site and joined up!!! I have only made 4 quilts,,actually a bed quilt, a lap quilt and a wall hanging, and a quilt for a trucker friend. I sewed the lap quilt and the trucker's quilt by hand, every single stitch from start to finish b'cuz I didn't have a sewing machine,,lol. I'm hoping to learn alot from you seasoned quilters! I already have actually-I've learned just from reading some of these blogs that quilters are FRIENDLY and very helpful! I crochet better than I quilt, but I hope I can start quilting again soon and improve my quilting skills (now that I have a sewing machine,,lol)Anyway, for you upstate NYers, ever hear of Waterloo or Romulus? I lived in both places(at different times of course,,lol)

    We finally got rid of all the snow we have been getting. I got my sister to move down here too. Where in AR are you. I am not too far from FT. Smith.

    Hi Miss Suzie! I am about an hour from Little Rock, I go there to the VA medical center for medical treatment. I think Ft Smith is where I need to go to get another military ID card b'cuz I lost mine. Can't go to the comissary or PX without one ya know.

    Miss Anne, I see your pic of your dog on a bed,,did you make that bed? I've looked in stores and in the Foster and Smith catalog for dog beds and they are pricey. I have several large dogs and they ALL need beds,,I have decided to make them myself,,,did you design your own bed or did you use a pattern?

    Hello from your neighbor in Kansas. I have just started taking up crocheting again after many years away from it. I would like to incorporate into my quilting somehow. You will learn a lot from this site. Great place to be.
