    I'm new and overwhelmed

    Hi , I just wanted to introduce myself and thank you for all the lovely replies to my post of the poppy wall hanging . I'm from the UK and have been quilting for about six years now. I love doing free-motion and applique wall hangings, although I'm working on a bargello quilt at the moment. It's the first one I have ever done and am really pleased with it so far. I think, perhaps, the hardest part is finding twenty different fabrics lol. Two years ago I start making dolls , they are very "quirky " I just can't stop making them.Thankyou for such a warm and friendly welcome. I really appreciate your kind words and will respond to the questions about the poppies.

    Welcome from Texas. I have a friend in the UK. We are making the same quilt together. We have shared fabric and are working at our own paces. Hers will have a blue background and mine will have a dark green background. We are loving this adventure.

    Welcome form Ontario, Canada. Please show us some pics of your quirky dolls.
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    A big welcome from the eastern part of Texas, USA. I would love to see pictures of the dolls you are making.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.
