    I'm a seriously lapsed quilter. I have a king-size scrap quilt that is half quilted but hasn't been worked on in around 3 years. I've been a quilter for aroung 30 years. Was heavily involved in our local guild, even held the office of president about 10 years ago but drifted away after that. I am scheduled to get certified on a longarm this weekend and hopefully finish the scrap quilt soon. Then I have my president's quilt top to do. I spend most of my time in the garden. My hubby and I got into tent camping about 4 years ago, mainly camping in N. Ga. and NC mountains...where we hope to retire in around 3 years.

    Welcome back! The Quilter's Call will always becon! The longest UFO I have is about 3 years old, and someday it will have a purpose and I will get it finished! There's a great group of individuals on here who make both wonderful friends and a treasure trove of a source for advice, experience and inspiration. Good luck on your certification and very glad to see you on the boards!

    Explosive blessings, abundance and inspiration to you all!

    Welcome from NC! We have a place in Blowing Rock, next to Boone where my daughter goes to school. Have you camped out that way?

    Welcome from Texas. Three years is not long for a project to lie fallow - it will be enjoyed for many years to come.
