    Hello from Canada

    Good morning from a very hot Canada, I am a mother of two children both grown and on their own and a grandma to six grand children . I have recently retired from a 27 year career in female Corrections and have just registered in school for Office Administration, due to start Sept 04. Im hoping to learn a lot about mid arm quilting as I just purchased a Pfaff 16.0 sit down machine. I have a busy home with 7 dogs on a half acre with lots of grass to cut and flowers to love on top of the quilting and other things I love to do.

    Hey, there, fellow Canuck.

    I'm out west and love to know see the growing number of Canadians here. Like you, my two children have yielded many grandchildren (my seventh was just born) and am likely to have great-grandchildren one day. I wish I could say they all have their own quilts but that's just something more to strive for. Enjoy your return to school. And, be sure to show us pictures of your quilts.

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

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

    Welcome to the board from a Canadian transplanted to Minnesota!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
