    Red face Hi from Ontario, Canada

    I live with my husband and our black labrador retreiver about 1.5 hours east of Toronto, Ontario. We have a country home with 14 acres of parkland, creeks and forest. Our two sons are married and have young families, so far 2 grandsons and a granddaughter. I have been quilting about 4 years now before that I sewed clothes and home dec. I have been a stay at home Mom but volunteered heavily till my husband retired 2 years ago. Now we have a Silverton 34C motor yacht and plan to cruise the Thousand Islands as much as possible. I joined Quilting Board actually last summer but on Aug 1 I had a accident on the boat which landed me in hospital for 6 weeks and bed rest at home till end of Nov. Then it was on to agressive physiotherapy to regain mobility in my right leg and right arm and shoulder. Enough of the sob story! I can now quilt again without too much pain and as long as I do not do it for long periods of time. Would love to hear from everybody.

    Hi I am from Colorado and am glad you joined us. I live in a little farm and we are retired too. I am housebound pretty much but find lots of things to do around here. I took up about 13 years ago, (I will be 70 pretty darn quick) and love it. Like to embroider too. Hope you get to feeling better and have a glorious day tomorrow. JO
