    Total newb

    Hey there! I am a total quilting newbie. I have an interest in quilting, I just haven't made the leap yet. I am trying to ease myself into it with grace....lol. There is a class at our local Hobby Lobby store that I am planning to start attending if I can peel myself away from life long enough. I hesitate because I know I will be hooked instantly...lol!

    Welcome, from Texas! Yes, it's a very addictive hobby . . . but is more productive, then most other hobbies.

    Thanks for the warm welcome and encouragement. :] My better half already thinks I have a fabric buying problem (even though I use it most of the time...lol) this might just send her over the edge...lol. Nah, she likes having a crafty girl, even if she wants to give me a hard time about it sometimes. Even she will admit there are worse addictions I could have...lol

    Remember, people will see your quilts long after you are gone....NOT your housework!

    Hi and welcome to the board from California. I had to chuckle at your screen name. Please let us know how the quilting class goes. You can find TONS of tutorials on youtube as well.
