    Hi, I'm from Pretoria, South Africa.
    Married for 28 yrs, 2 boys, 1 married, 1 grandson.
    Am a retired Registerd Nurse and Midwife.
    "Discovered" quilting on the internet about 2yrs ago - and about 8 quilt-tops later I can tell you I am what Kay Wood would call .... a "pointless" quilter on a galloping horse!
    I don't have no qualms about points that don't match, haywire seams, if the colors go together .... niks.
    I have way too much fun learning new techniques, and playing with all my sewing-toys ....
    My timing was way off in the chat-room this morning .... but HI to you all ... it is good to meet you!

    Hi from Petoskey,MI. What's the weather like there in March? I'm glad that you are enjoying quilting. I'm not as experienced as the others on the board,but I truely am having fun. I'm working on a hand pieced,hand quilted log cabin quilt at the moment. If you're not familiar with the process ,you quilt as you sew on batting ,and backing. Then I'm going to try to do the cotton theory on the back. I will let you know how it works.

    Thanks to all for the warm welcome!
    Up here in Transvaal, autumn is supposed to start in March, but it is still hot. Our cooler weather only starts in May .... and then we have only about 2 months of winter before Spring sets in. Our winter temps are around 8-15 degrees celcius. I have never seen snow. Pity.
    The Cape Province have it nice - they get to enjoy cold winters for longer periods.
    Someday soon I'll get to move down there ....

    I just read your second post. If you are ever in Wisconsin visiting, the door's open and a bed is waiting. If you visit during the winter, I'll let you use our snow shovel to your heart's content! haha
