    Hi from Maryland

    Hi, I'm new to the board, from Maryland. Consider myself a beginner quilter. Not sure why my profile photo is not showing up. I see it on "my profile" but it doesn't seem to show up when I posted. I'm already a board failure!

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

    Hello from the soggy side of Washington. I'm reasonably internet savvy and have been on the board for a couple months now -- and still haven't figured out a lot! Like when I look at my options and on computer I get paragraphs just fine and on the other one I don't...

    Finding this was the big thing, we can work on the little things together.

    I'm a Marylander, too . (Close to PA line.) Welcome to the board, and you are not a failure. I have been around here for a few years, and still learning and messing up. No big deal, really.

    Welcome to the board! I just got back from Maryland for vacation. We ate tons of fabulous seafood!! Our son and his wife live in Alexandria so we visit often. Such a beautiful part of the country.
