    Smile Hello from Pennsylvania

    Hi, my name is Byrl and I've been quiltings for 25 years. I was in a accident 4 months ago and lost a lot of use in my arms. Everyone said I had to find new hobby. They say if you want to do somerthing keep on trying. But I am quilting again. I tell everyone that I may not be as good as I used to be, but I'm as good as I can be now.

    Welcome from Ontario, Canada. Sorry you are hurt but keep quilting. I can't do some of things now that used to be so easy when I was younger. Do what you can and see if you can find someone to help with things you can't do. Since my shoulder injury I've been having help to rotary cut my fabrics. I can still sew and quilt, thank goodness!

    Welcome from along the Delaware in beautiful PA. So good to hear that you are recovering from your mishap and are able to quilt again. keep on finding new ways and methods to be creative and enjoy "the doing".
