    Hello from a very cold Northern Ontario

    Good Morning. Woke up to a very chilly minus 29 Celsius morning here in Northern Ontario. But the sun is up and a beautiful clear blue sky. I have been quilting for a number of years. Really enjoy piecing and am now trying free motion with my Janome 6600.

    Welcome from Central Florida! We had two days of getting up with temperatures of 32 and 30 degrees Fahrenheit. That's cold for us, but it's way better than what you have.
    Enjoy the QB. Lots of help here.

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

    Welcome and Hi from North Carolina. Snow was predicted for us this weekend, but we got only cold rain. The mountains of NC got snow, but not us in the Piedmont. Snow is pretty, but I am housebound when it snows. I'm old and originally from Florida. I can't drive or even walk in the stuff!

    Welcome, so glad you found us. I thought 7 below 0 at my house this morning was cold, boy was I wrong. I just look at it as a good excuse to stay in and do what else but quilt��.

    Welcome from South Louisiana. I cannot even fathom living in an environment that gets as cold as yours is. I am definitely a warm weather gal.

    Welcome from the middle of the US - the state of Missouri. I have always wondered how you'all heat your houses up north? Gas, electric, wood???

    Hello from usually Soggy Seattle. Doesn't look like we'll get snow this year but it is cold for us. I grew up in Alaska so I've had my share of cold winters and don't really miss it...

    Thank goodness quilting is a warm activity. Of course I don't like that so much when it is hot out, I don't know why but it seems I always have a queen sized quilt that must be finished in August. I've used a vintage machine for the last 20 years and I've had access to a long arm for a couple of years, but back in November a friend gave me a modern Bernina and I'm just about finished with my first free motion project on my domestic machine. First thing I learned is the batting I chose was too thick
