    Hi,

    My name is Kirsten and I have been quilting for about 8 years now.

    I used to be really active in one forum in particular (a hand quilting group with Yahoo!). However, I got pregnant and discovered I had the energy to gestate, work and quilt or to gestate, work and talk about quilting!

    Now that my baby is 6 months old I want to start talking about quilting again. However, the group that I used to post in has shut down, so now I am looking for another forum to join.

    I used to travel with work a lot, so I mostly did hand piecing on airplanes. I am much more land-based now, so I have been sneaking in some machine work whenever I can. Unfortunately we have a tiny apartment and my sewing room is also the baby's room, so I have to work around her napping schedule.

    And yes, my baby is the smartest, strongest, most beautiful baby in the world. I am also completely unbiased about her.

    You can check out my blog (which I am trying to start updating again...) at http://www.3dquilt.blogspot.com/

    I managed to organize a trip to Japan during the Tokyo Quilt Festival a couple of years ago - it was one of the best experiences of my entire life (keep in mind I am 6' and blond, in a sea of little Japanese ladies!) The quilts were amazing, and I discovered my quilting hero - Kuroha Shizuko.

    You're so lucky to be close enough to attend!

    OMG - you had me laughing out loud. Sounds like you really know yourself well. I'm surprised you find ANY time to do ANYTHING with that sweet bundle of joy.

    Greetings from frostbit Northern California and hope you will find time to add some actual quilting to your repertoire.

    Welcome from NY. Isn't it wonderful how there's only one "most beautiful baby in the world"... and every mother has that baby?

    (Yours truly IS beautiful! Enjoy!)
