    Hello Quilters

    Hi, I am Toogie and I love sewing, embroidering (machine or by hand), quilting (hand or machine), smocking and making baby garments, crochet.....well just about anything I can learn-lol I have 3 grown and married children, with 11 grand children, 1 great grandchild and 2 on the way. I love the three 'F's" God the Father, Family and Fabric!-lol And I guess you could say I like to joke and be light hearted. I have so far made 3 Queen size quilts, a throw I just finished and plan to post, several baby quilts. I guess you could say I'm still learning if I can still count them. I plan on learning a lot from this site and each of you. Have a great day-Toogie

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Howdy Toogie, nice to have you here.

    I'm always impressed by hand work and people who do stuff like smocking -- please share pictures!

    Thank you all for the warm welcome.
    Iceblossom, I would love to show you some smocking or hand embroidery, but where do you post pictures not quilt related?

    Welcome, Toogie!
    As far as I know you can post them under Pictures- someone correct me if I'm wrong.
    Glad you joined us!

    Toogie, I haven't figured out why some of my pictures load and others don't and I apparently don't take very good pictures. I thought the modern cameras would help me but apparently not! Thanks for trying, we'll get it figured out eventually.

    Welcome from Maine. I'm a newbie to this forum and any forum for that matter. I feel your pain in uploading pictures. I'm somewhat technology challenged so even after reading the very clear and informative help section on how to upload pictures I too still get some that fail, and the why behind it is beyond me. Enjoy the forum, I've already learned alot and have put some of what I've learned into motion improving my love of quilting.

    Welcome Toogie! Sounds like your life is busy and full. What a blessing to have such a big family.

    For pictures to load here they need to be *very* small. I use my Iphone to take pictures, and I have to reduce them down to just 25% of the original size in order to post them here. Good luck, we'd love to see your work!

    BTW, the "Pictures" section is only for quilting-related photos. All else can be posted in the "Chit Chat" section.
