    Hi everyone!

    I am Alexis for VA. I am a homeschool mom to a 6 year old, and recently got back into quilting. I have made 4 and i am working on number 5 right now!

    I also just got a new kenmore machine this week since I killed my old brother machine last week. It was very sad.

    Anywhoo--I am excited to join here!

    Hi Alexis and welcome from southern Indiana! How do you manage to get anything done with home schooling a 6 year old???? (We would love to see pictures of the 6 year old and your quilts :-) )

    ok...well, I added an avatar...sorry it is so small!!!

    We were out bowling and at taekwondo today...then dinner and ice cream. Hubby/daddy is out of town, so you would THINK I would be happily sewing along...no...all tv tonight.

    this is my son bowling in PJ's last week with his homeschool league. Can you guess who the clown is? He is on a team with 3 girls. They think he is weird. They are right.


    Oh...and I am currently working on blockcentral.com's Patchwork Panache. I have done through May. I should get off the PC and do a block before bed. Everything is cut out and parceled out...just need to actually piece it together. Now I am feeling guilty. I really should go do a block...

    Hi Alexis - love your pics! I've got a 6 year old boy as well (and a 4 year old girl!) your boy isn't weird, maybe a little eccentric maybe LOL - but I bet PJs are really comfy for bowling in so he's right it's everyone else who's wrong! Love you block!

    Hi Alexix -

    Welcome from New Hampshire - Where are you located?? We just moved from Warrenton (Northern VA) up here to the cold country.

    Miss the beautiful Piedmont but am enjoying the mountains now.

    Good luck with the new machine.

    I also sew on a Brother machine--mine is 60 years old. It was my Grandmothers' machine. It only has a straight stitch, no fancy stuff for this machine!
