    Hello from Michigan!

    Hi Everyone!
    I wanted to stop in and say hello! It's great to meet you all! (I'm excited to have found this board!)

    I'm in Michigan, more specifically White Lake, which is a small township about an hour from Flint. I live here with my husband James. I work in the IT industry and am lucky that I now work full time from home. We also do puppy rescue, and work with a local rescue organization. My husband and I mainly foster pregnant strays or strays that had puppies (we don't mind the long commitment). My husband will also assist in transporting rescue puppies from out of state (from high kill shelters). And yes, we are crazy and have 5 dogs of our own, as well as a cat

    My home office doubles as my craft area, and I am fairly new to quilting and embroidery, but will confess that I am addicted!

    I look forward to learning from you all!

    Welcome from Texas! I think you will really like this Quilting Board. There are so many helpful people on this board & you will never lack for information. So happy to hear about your puppy rescue work. It's a very good thing you & your husband are doing for the animals.

    Howdy from the Seattle area of Washington State.

    My hubby and his family hail from the Grand Rapids/Holland area so the other side of the state in a straight line. I've only been to Michigan once, hubby and I met on line and I went to meet his friends and family before he moved out here to be with me.

    I've been thinking of going back for the big quilt show in Grand Rapids -- and to visit my dear Mother-in-law too (especially since I'd be staying with her)!

    My other Michigan connection is Fields fabric. When I've had a hard time finding what I want, I've found it on Amazon offered by Fields.

    All of my pets are rescues, or as I say "someone else's problems". I love them dearly. My current two bonded dogs came from a bad situation, their life is so improved with us. Poor little things are terrier mixes (not pitties), knee high and about 25 pounds, they were the neglected dogs only in the garage or backyard, no vet care, never socialized and the one was 3 years old and completely non-housebroken when we got them. Many dogs in their situation give up, but these still wanted and craved human attention and now they get it

    Only have one cat at the current time. Usually I've had multiple cats but since I've down-sized my dogs to be house dogs that creates feeding problems and I only have one cat feeding station.

    Ahh, I know the Grand Rapids/Holland area! I used to go to Grand Rapids for doctor appointments (I have epilepsy and they have a great program there). My husband also goes to Holland when he does interstate puppy runs. There is a person there who owns a strip mall, and stores dog food for various stores. When it gets full, the stores let him donate the food to rescues. So, my husband goes there first to get what he can to take to the fosters.

    My husband is from Virginia. I grew up in Michigan, but was in Virginia for over 20 years working. When I decided I wanted to move back (slower pace of living) he decided he would marry me and join me

    before you speak T.H.I.N.K.
    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.
