    Howdy from snowbound north Missouri

    Hi everyone, I am new to this board and anxious to learn oddles and gobs. I am an avid seamstress, and an intermediate quilter. I am looking forward to buying my own long arm quilting machine. I am looking forward to making 18 quilts for kids and grandkids in the near future. I have 5 kids and 13 grandchildren. I am a Nurse Practitioner who at this point is working full time, so look forward to time off to quilt. I think I might win a race for "she who has the biggest stash wins the race" LOL. It is my habit. Since I don't drink or smoke or do drugs, I have a pretty safe habit of buying fabric. Unfortunately in my rural area, there are few quilt shops. I am a farm girl and we raise black angus cattle. I do gardening, canning, freezing, rug hooking (the old fashioned kind), make reproduction samplers, etc. Am anxious to meet you all and become friends. Have fun quilting..marti

    Welcome Marti - a big SHO-ME welcome - coming from Lebanon, MO. We also raise registered Angus cattle - DH just got done ear-tagging a new baby born in all of this mess/snow. Sounds like you may have to wait until you can retire to get much long-arm quilting done. Doubt if you can top my "story" but my sewing room's floor collapsed with the weight of all the fabric in it!!!!!
