    New from Australia

    Hi everyone. I am from the Snowy Mountains area of NSW. Am a passionate quilter, have been quilting for about 9 years and only regret that I do not have enough years left to tackle all the wonderful projects that present themselves to my overactive imagination.

    I love living here in this beautiful part of Australia and share my life with a wonderful and supportive husband, an elegant gentleman cat, and an abundance of wildlife. Our two daughters live not too far away and we have two grandchildren.

    I am curious to know how many other Aussies are out there in Quilting Board land ... lots, I imagine. Am really looking forward to getting to know you all.

    Mary B

    Hi and Welcome from Las Vegas. Years ago I had a very dear friend from Australia. She came to the US with her American husband and lived across the street from us. Sadly for me after about 5 years they moved back to Queensland. My family and I saw them off on the ship in San Francisco. We wrote over the years and then I got a note from her son that she had passed away. She was such a sweet and dear friend and we always talked about someday maybe I could go to Australia and see her. You will find they are quite a few of your mates on this board and everyone is so helpful and nice, I know you will be happy joining all of us....
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    Hi Lyn. My next-door-neighbour moved here from Campbelltown. Where's your nearest quilt shop? Do you visit the one at Camden?

    Hello ShabbyTabby. So sorry to hear you lost your Australian friend. Do you think you will ever visit Australia now or is that not likely?

    Thank you for the welcome, I am looking forward to joining in here and sharing with you all.

    Howdy from NC! there are several of your neighbors here on this board! (you may not know them...yet)

    A great way to meet people on this board is to jump into some of the swaps we have such as the December Doll Quilt Swap.... here is a link you can read and see if you would like to give it a try. We have a swapper who lives in Australia too!
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/member-...p-t206348.html
    We have so much fun with this swap. NO PRESSURE at all with the doll quilts. We offer themes but purely optional.
    Give it a thought! We would love to have you!

    Much as I would love to, that time for me has passed. I'm just too darned old and about the only places I go these days are the Dr., the grocery store, Joann's Fabrics and the drugstore...my friend, Betty, used to buy a lottery ticket for me hoping that someday it would hit and I could go visit. She was from Belambi (sp?) Togoolawa, Queensland.

    Welcome from Fargo, North Dakota (USA). I haven't ever participated in any swaps, but I'm thinking of jumping in soon. Donna

    Hi Mary,
    Right now I am visiting my daughter and family in North Melbourne. I come to visit every year. I live in southern California near Disneyland. I hope to make it over to NSW to check it out. Welcome to the board. There are other Aussies on this board.

    Hi Mary B. I am from Perth, Western Australia and am just re-kindling my interest in Quilting. I am just getting back into quilting after a hiatus of quite a few years. I have two grown kids, each with their families. They live too far away for my liking. One on the south coast of WA and the other in Tassie. [so I am just a Nanna on the Phone]

    This is my first post on this board - so I will say welcome to you and me!
