    Hello from the Cotswolds

    Hello Everyone
    I just popped over here as mention was made of this forum on my Facebook newsfeed, and it looks like a fun place to be, so I joined up at once. I was a quilter in the 90s, and moved over to machine embroidery, and then paper crafts when I was homeschooling, as it takes up less time (but not room). A friend asked me to help her to begin quilting a few weeks ago, and I got so fired up, I have pieced some tops, bought some books and fabric....and haven't found time to get together with my friend yet! (Too busy quilting!). I am very excited about the new fabric ranges and the lovely colours, and think I may well be a Jelly Roll addict!
    Oh yes, my name is Kate. I live in Gloucestershire, England, with my lovely husband, three daughters and six chickens. One of my girls is at uni in North Wales, so I am feeling my age a bit these days. I am looking forward to making some fabulous new quilting friends. Lovely to meet you all.

    Oh, I'm so jealous! The Cotswolds is the one place I really want to visit someday. Welcome to the group; you'll love it!

    Hello and welcome from New York. This IS a wonderful place for quilters to meet and share. I've loved it since day one.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Welcome from California. Mention of the Cotswolds brings to my mind lovely green fields and trees.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    Welcome from across the pond as they say and all the way from the Gulf of Mexico in Corpus Christi, Texas. You will love this forum. You will have gathered so much information you'll think your brain can't take in anymore and there you go. Just like dessert there's always room for more.

    Welcome Kate from Washington State. This board is addicting but it is a good addiction! I homeschooled for 17 years and loved it.
