    My sister just joined the group. Hurray for that. She's kinda been in a sewing slump for a while now and needs some motivation. I know I can count on all of you to help me get her going again. Just a nudge and some gentle persuasion. Come on Tonsau7, YOU CAN DO IT!!! Just 10 minutes at a time is all it takes to get you going again. Remember, YOU CAN DO IT!!!

    Hello Tonsau7! You just need to spend some time at that machine and start sewing anything! Get use to it again then start with something easy and go from there. It only takes a moment to get to that machine! Happy quilting!

    Look at a few pictures, on here or in magazines, or catch the odd incidental quilt in the props of a tv show, and Wah-Lah there ya go!
    Inspiration!
    Not to mention, if you show your progress, or even lack of it on this board, you will get all kinds of input and encouragement.

    Hi Tonsau7 Welcome to the board! Join one of the swaps or one of the quilt groups. It's really a motivator! We'd love to see you there! I'm doing the Farmer's Wife Sampler. I'm a member of the slackers group. That way I can wait until others have found all the difficulties of the square and post ways to make it easier. :D

    a warm welcome from KY. I know I should spend more time at one of my sewing machines and less at my puter, but this board is so great! It is full of great ideas, some of which I plan to do for Xmas gifts this year.
    happy stitching and WELCOME!!!!

    Hi tonsau7, welcome to our group, we will support you when you start sewing again. Start with something small, like those Farmer's Wife blocks. They are fun to do and you can see the pictures of what they look like. Do a couple of those, they don't take much fabric at all. How's Doug doing?

    Glad you're back to sewing, Tonsau! I agree with everyone else--pick a small project that you really love, and just jump in! Maybe a wallhanging for Halloween? A table runner for Christmas?

    Just occurred to me that we're all "enablers" here--we know exactly what will happen once she gets started, because we share a common addiction!
