    Hi from MA

    Hello all,

    As an empty nester (apart from the dog, cat, and bird), I'm just starting back into quilting after about a 10-year break! I haven't done any sewing at all for about 6 years, so I'm feeling a bit rusty. Luckily, the same can't be said about my machine -- dragged out of its hibernation in the shed just yesterday and looking good.

    I'm excited to get back into it and REALLY happy to have found this site.

    Marie

    Welcome from the Gulf of Mexico! Corpus Christi, to be exact. I was also on a 10 year hiatus. Lost a lot of motivation. Found this site last year and happier. Slowly getting more motivated. The busier I get the more motivated I get. You will learn and gain so much from this site. Also anything you can contribute such as tips and feel free to share your photos of your projects. Happy Quilting!!

    Hi, I'm from MA also and my name is Marie. I joined QB last October. Where about in MA are you from? I'm from the town of Millbury just south of Worcester, maybe we're neighbors?

    Thanks for the welcome, everyone. Marie, I'm living in Townsend, about an hour north of Worcester and close to the NH border. I'm an ex-pat from England (and Ireland) and been living over here for the last 17 years.

    I'm looking forward to getting back into quilting!

    Welcome from OHIO and welcome back to sewing/quilting!
    Being a great quilter is 5% talent and 95% pushing yourself away from the internet!

    Welcome to the Board and welcome back to the world of sewing. Be sure to have your machine serviced before you start sewing too much. (And put in a new needle!)

    Welcome from the foothills of the Colorado Rockies! I am in the same boat as you are. I know you will enjoy the board as much as I do.
    I am too POSITIVE to be doubtful, too OPTIMISTIC to be fearful and way to DETERMINED to be defeated.

    The only place that housework comes before quilting is in the dictionary.
