    To everything , there is a time and place. Good luck to the outgoing and welcome aboard to the newby. Hardest part of your job is keeping the quilting police from using this forum to check on us.

    Welcome TaliaRose. You have big shoes to fill. Konstantin did a great job, and I wish him well.

    Hope you have as much fun as that guy did. I too am a general crafter, but in the past 6 months or so have gotten VERY deep into quilting. So glad to welcome you - from NE Colorado.

    Welcome TaliaRose, I also am new to this site, but I see you are also owned by cats. I dont beleive a quilt is finished untill my cat has slept on it and given it the approval.

    You don't suppose Konstantin has himself a "bridezilla" do you?

    Welcome Talia Rose. We are from time to time a pain in the pahtootie - but we're worth every minute of it...

    And Patrice, I for one, truly appreciate all the hours you put in to this sight. You must never sleep. I've dealt with you all hours of the night. Kudos to you sweetie! Good luck to all!

    and then they aren't doing too shabby either....

    (Reuters) - Private equity firm Hellman & Friedman on Monday agreed to acquire internet media company Internet Brands INET.O for $640 million in cash.

    I don't think I like the idea of 'them' owning 'my' posts.... bye
    And you act like that's a bad thing? I hope K made a fortune. I don't doubt this site was like raising a dozen kids all the same age. Anything K got from this was well earned. No doubt about it...

    As for the new Admin... You're right - They are obviously talented!

    I'm jumping on the "Welcome Talia" bandwagon. And here's wishing Mr. & Mrs. Gorilla the very best in life.

    Welcome! Very cute kitties.

    I realize that the news of Konstantin leaving is a shock for many of you. While I am optimistic about this transition, I understand how some of you might be confused or concerned about what it means for you. QB is a place you’ve trusted with your quilting projects and personal experiences – the friends and bonds you’ve made here are something you value highly.

    My main role as Admin is to provide support for PatriceJ (who will remain the Senior Moderator of QB). We have the benefit of a team of people at Internet Brands that will be able to help us if there are technical issues on the website.

    Along with being a technology geek, I myself am a crafter. I love jewelry making and painting. I have to say, I’m not very good at sewing, although I am TRYING to learn and get better so I can make my own bags!! Maybe you all can teach me a few things about quilting!

    I know many of you have questions. I am very responsive, so please do not hesitate to send me a PM or reply with your questions here.

    - TaliaRose
