    Hello from Southern California

    Hello everyone,

    I'm Carrie and am just getting myself back into quilting after a several-year hiatus. I'm a mother of 3 (plus 2 dogs)…daughter just graduated college and is heading off for a year urban outreach mission in Philadelphia, a son who just graduated high school and will begin college in a few weeks, and a daughter going into 8th grade. I'm a school counselor and life coach by profession, an avid reader, a triathlete, and a soon-to-be owner of the HQ Sweet 16 (cannot wait). I'm happy to be here and look forward to meeting many of you, sharing ideas, pictures, and all things quilting.

    Carrie

    Welcome from Illinois! Enjoy your new HQ machine!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Being a great quilter is 5% talent and 95% pushing yourself away from the internet!
