    I'm brand new to chatting on line, but it looks so fun, I decided to join in. I always love to see beginner's quilts and the most recent showed here were great! I'm not far from being a beginner myself and through friends and some workshops I have learned so much that now I can do things (some things, anyway :mrgreen: ) on my own. So many ideas and so little time to do them! Sigh... But, this year I'm devoting to UFO's primarily as well as finishing quilts I promised my grandkids (I've got to get busy and get them done before they all grow up!!) This doesn't stop my drawing new designs, reading tons of quiting books, and far exceeding my budget buying fabric I just "have to have" for my stash! Buy for now, WLee

    Welcome from PA! I'm new to chatting on line,too. I was getting wrist pain until I learned how to use the mouse properly. I'd love to see the designs you draw and how you go about it. How many grandkids do you have?

    Someday I might be able to show you some of my designs, but I just bought this new computer and I'm still in the learning curve! I don't know how to do everything yet! We have nine grandchildren, from two months old to eleven (4 boys and 5 girls!-fun, fun, fun! Except for the fact that none of them live in Colorado-- :cry: ) Well, it's late--must go! Thanks for giving me a nice welcome!

    Hi, Will's grammy!

    Aren't grandkids fun! I have nine now. Unfortunately, none of them live close, but we manage visits and lots of talks on the phone (not enough, though--wish they lived closer). I think this is going to be a fun experience on line for me--I've never done this before! Well, it's late and I must go now--thanks for the nice welcome!

    Hi there!

    Thanks for the nice welcome. I think this is going to be really fun! It's a new experience for me--I've never joined an online group like this! Right now Florida sounds great! Everything is white with snow here--it was snowing off and on all day. I do love Colorado, though, and the lovely change of seasons. The quilts in your picture looked lovely. Once I get some of my UFOs finished and learn how to put pix up on my new computer, maybe I'll show some of mine!

    Hi Gayle!

    Thanks for the welcome! I used to live in the San Fernando Valley and, more recently, in Simi Valley, and I'm very familiar with Camarillo! Every time I think of the ocean, I get homesick! I grew up in Los Angeles and the beach! However, Colorado is beautiful and I also love the mountains! Colorado Springs is a friendly small city and there are lots of quilters here, which is fun. It's been snowing off and on all day here and it's beautiful, but cold! You must be proud of your children--congratulations and thanks for their contribution to our country and to all of us. WLee

    I, too, am new to this on the computer *** circle of friends***. Only one grand child for me (bet ya can't guess his name). I've made several quilts over the years and now my dream is to get a longarm and put it in its own little building . My house is small and there isn't enough room for one in here.
