    Hello from Indiana

    Hi,
    My name is Veronica, but most people call me Roni. I recently graduated from college. When I was about half way through college, I was told to apply for disability because it was unlikely that I would be able to obtain employment because of my health. I hate not being able to do anything. I am used to working and miss it. Consequently, I have decided to take up quilting because I have been interested in quilting for many years. This week, I was able to aquire the supplies I needed to get started. I want something that will keep me occupied.

    Welcome from Peru, IN Have you picked out any fabric or a pattern? I think that's one of the best parts of the process.

    To Babyfire04, Yes I have picked out some fabric, still deciding on a pattern. Think I am going to make a set of 4 placemats for starters.
