    Hi

    I am new here, thought I would introduce myself.I am Jeanne. I live in Southwestern Wisconsin, best place around in my humble opinion.

    Widow, Husband passed away a year and 1/2 ago, miss him every day. Have 3 grown Daughters, who all have significant others (Boyfriends or Husbands) are all 3 happy, healthy, have jobs, etc. I couldn't be happier about my Daughters. I have 1 Grandson who is the light of my life, funny, and cuter than cute. Wish my Husband was here to enjoy him, he was born after my Husband passed away.

    I am recently retired, after my Husband passed away, I just didn't want to go to work any more, stuck it out almost 2 years and decided it was time to stay home and enjoy my life. I quilt, do alot of hand stitching, embroidery, applique, wool applique, hand dye wool, make journals from scratch, pretty much anything that is stitching or sewing connected I will give it a try. Everyone always told me I would enjoy retirement but no one told me I would be busier than I was when I worked full time. I volunteer at the Local Library and the Humane Society and babysit for my Grandson and try to get some sewing time in there sometimes too. I have a friend who is working on turning her cheese factory into her "Studio" so I am helping her with that too. Not good with hammer and nails but am good at dragging stuff out and helping put it back together

    I am constantly entertained by my little Rat Terrier Dandelion and my big lab Bruiser, also have 3 cats that are pretty independent, but the dogs are definitely my Shadows. Especially Dandelion. Also 4 horses, 1 morgan/paint, 1 breeding stock paint, 1 quarter horse and the queen of the ranch an arabian mare who keeps the 3 "boys" in line.

    I think that is my life in a nutshell. Nice to meet everyone and hope to get lots of ideas here. Going to check out the site and see if I can figure out how to post some of my quilt pics somewhere.

    where can I post pictures? I haven't figured that out yet.

    Another Nancy~~~~~~~I am from over by Dodgeville close to the Mississippi River, The Wisconsin River, Blue Mounds State Park, Governor Dodge State Park, about 1/2 hour from Madison (just far enough away) about 1 hour from the Baraboo Bluffs, 1 hour from Galena IL. Great Quilt Shops around the area too. Are you going to the Quilt Expo in Madison this week? DEFINITELY THINK I AM BLESSED TO LIVE HERE.

    Welcome from Ontario, Canada. It sounds like you are as busy in retirement as you were working but at least you can do fun things. Very nice quilt and Bruiser looks like he is enjoying his pool time.

    A warm welcome from North Central Washington, Jeanne. I liked your 1600 Jelly Roll. One of these days I will tackle one myself. Thanks for sharing a picture of Bruiser.

    Hi from Minneapolis! Love the photo of Bruiser and your jelly roll quilt.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
