    Hello to all you fellow quilters! I have been quilting for a long time, but still learning new things almost every day. I sew as often as I can--I have some major health problems and there are days that I can't manage to get to my sewing room.
    The kinds of quilts I make are varied--from baby quilts to wedding quilts to table toppers to whatever else I want to try.
    I'm pretty blessed to have a husband who is a sewing machine technician and interested in quilting too. He participated with me in a BOM from one of our LQS. We have twin daughters and so making two quilts of the same pattern worked out well. Between us, we have 13 children and 22 grandchildren!
    We just bought a motorhome and I have a sewing machine that will go with us when we travel. Our goal is to find quilt stores and quilt shows to enjoy wherever we decide to go. Having the motorhome will allow us to travel and rest whenever we need to.
    I have enjoyed following the posts on the forum and hope to contribute more as time goes on.
    You are all the best!

    Most of the kids live close by, but the rest are spread around a bit--a son in the Florida Keys, a daughter in Utah, another son in Santa Barbara, CA going to school for his PhD in Chemical Engineering, another son in Southern Idaho. The grandkids are mostly here too, but we have a grown granddaughter in Western Washington and four little grandsons in Utah.
    We still have one son living with us--he's 22 and needs to fly the nest sometime soon :) ! All of our kids are married except three boys.

    Welcome from Ireland. Does that motor home of yours have room for a laptop so you can keep in touch with us while you are on your travels? And can you lend us your DH when we all have problems with our machines please?

    Thanks so much for all the "welcomes"! I will try to get some of my pictures together and get them posted. I have truly enjoyed reading the posts, learning as I go, and getting to know each person.
    I hope everyone had a safe yet enjoyable 4th of July weekend!

    Oh by the way, the picture shown on my avatar is a quilt my sister and I made for our niece, Sammy Jo's wedding. When we decided to make this quilt, I had never done any hand applique'. My sister had chosen the pattern and also found an applique' class for us to take. I had always been afraid to try hand applique', but once I learned how it was great. I now have an applique' project going all the time. I work on it in the car whenever we go someplace. I was involved in a really bad car accident almost ten years ago, and I get jumpy when I watch what is going on outside while riding in a car. This way, I get to do something I enjoy and it keeps me from scaring my husband half to death when I gasp at what usually turns out to be nothing!

    Hello and welcome. I'm on the northside of Spokane. I'm going to the valley today for a sit and sew with a small group I belong to.
