    Congrats Konstantin: Best wishes for a very happy life with your new wife.

    Welcome, Talia, from Northern California. So happy to meet you. I hope you will enjoy this QB as much as I do.

    Patrice: Thanks for the update and all that you do for us.

    Thanks for the update, Patrice and WELCOME TaliaRose. Since you have cats, the "not being a good sewer (yet) can easily be overlooked. Don't you know that cats and quilting go together? So you are on the right road, lol.
    Haha!! This is very true!

    I think I'll get bitten by the quilting bug very quickly since I'll be hanging around here so often!

    I'm sure K made bookoodles of bucks on that transaction... so I don't think you have to feel too sorry for him.... does, "independently wealthy' mean anything to you....

    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

    well, now ... :hunf:

    let me urge everyone who is not wholly comfortable with the concept to give things a "wait and see" before jumping to conclusions and freaking out to such an alarming and hostile degree.

    What a blessing that Konstantin has found a bride.
    May your life be blessed and then some with little ones running around following in your shoes.
    Thank you for the time you gave all of us on this board.

    Welcome TaliaRose. Love your kitties you are holding.
    All the quilters here will help with any questions you have with quilting. So many talented people on this board.

    Blessings,
    Sandi

    Hi! Thanks for the warm welcome! We are also hoping for a smooth transition and we're working behind the scenes with Konstantin to make sure the website continues full "seam" ahead during this transition. Ehhh attempt at a bad joke, sorry!!

    Once we post something on any forum, it's out there for the public eye. I don't remember anything about an entity "owning" my posts in the registration part of the forum. I do appreciate the info. but hope that the forum will continue onwards and upwards
    :thumbup: Welcome to the new admin.
