    Hello, a new member from the UK!

    Hello, I am Morag, living near Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire in the UK. I have always loved sewing, but only started getting into patchwork and quilting a couple of years ago...and I am totally hooked!

    I now have a lovely Bernina 230PE sewing machine (second hand, but perfect) and love it.

    I have browsed this board a couple of occasions, but though it was about time I joined in. I love the fact that this is world-wide, so you can be having conversations with people anywhere. It is a great source of information, and I look forward to tapping it in the coming months/years...oh yes, I am here for the long haul!!

    I have only made one quilt so far, a play mat for a new-born, and have a samp,er quilt on the go. I have made the blocks, attaching the sashing next. Unfortunately I have hurt my wrist and have not sewn properly for nearly 2 months now...getting quite frustrated now! I am however catching up with all my Craftsy classes, as well as wandering the internet for more ideas, not that I really need any more at the moment!!

    I am married with two big lads, 20 and 23, both at university. My craft room moves about the house, depending who is home at any one time. This summer I am back in the conservatory as both boys will be home for most of the summer. Much as I love having them about...I can't wait to get back upstairs again!!

    Well, my lunch break is nearly over, so I had better get back to work...in a sewing machine shop! It is great fun, and I love helping folks choose a new machine.

    I will pop back over the weekend and have a proper visit and see what people are up to. I think I am goign to enjoy visiting this board!!

    Welcome from OHIO! So happy you have decided to join us here.
    Being a great quilter is 5% talent and 95% pushing yourself away from the internet!

    Oooh CoventryUK, a near neighbour, less than an hour away!! Oldest son is finishing at Warwick Uni next week, graduating in July. He's been there four years, staying in Earlsdon for three of them, so we know the road up there pretty well

    Hello Morag, welcome from northern California, USA! You will enjoy it here. It is a wonderful place to communicate with other quilters and to be able to ask for help. We love pictures, too!
