    My name is Sandy Cowan. I live in Caldwell, Texas which is Central Texas. Beleive it or not, I used to make quilts about 20 plus years ago. Nothing really fancy, just functional quilts. Im just getting the bug again!
    I have no idea how to upload images on here. The choose file icon isnt lite up so I can show my first quilt after many years quilt top Im quilting right now. Once again though, its nothing fancy but the colors sure are pretty. Ive used Batik fabric with black and yellow borders and wanted to share. Oh well, guess ill learn how eventually.
    Anyway, ive been reading the forum and boy am I out classed! LOL. ITS OK THOUGH. I love the visual and inspirational creativity in here. Beautiful work ya'll. Im gonna post my intro now and hope I can find this thread again to read responses. ;)
    Oh, one thing about me.... Im pretty rough around the edges. Guess its just the Texan in me. Pay no nevermind, ok? Im a nice lady. :D

    It sure seems like a nice place to be. Ive been on a few other types of forums before and didnt care for the arguing and skuffles between members. I hope this one doesnt allow that. I was once a glass worker, sculputor. It gets really messy in those forums. I am finding so far, that this forum is much more mature. Thank god! Its hard to find a good clean forum these days.
    Thanks for the welcome ya'll

    so far, im really impressed with the quality of people and the art of quiilting.
    Hey, i just went to the thread on how to post pictures. Mine doesnt have a browse button. It says choose file but its not lite up. Do I need to change some settings in my profile or something? Can someone help me out please?

    Welcome Sandy,
    From one of the other central Texans!
    Just be sure when you go to upload a photo to your post to not do a preview, for some reason that take it off the post.

    You will love this board, something for everyone.
