    I can't believe ya'll think I was laughing and my fingers were studdering while I was typing what I did.
    I was only telling the truth!

    Hmm...I see, El Segundo. Might have to take a trip there. Never been there. Anyone want to go and play with TaliaRose's cute little kitties? We could give her the low-down on the board and teach her to quilt!

    I don't really have a speech prepared :) But I want to say that running the board has been an amazing experience.

    Users are what makes the board what it is, so I don't think anything is going to change.
    As for the future, Internet Brands has a lot more resources than I do, so they'll be able to make sure everything runs smoothly as the board grows.

    Patrice, thank you for everything, and I'm sure you'll continue doing amazing job moderating the board.

    Thank you all! I'll miss QB greatly.

    It's like a second new year - out with the old, in with the new.

    Not that you're old, Konstantin. WONDERFUL news and many, many, many wishes for wedded bliss.

    Welcome TaliaRose. You have big shoes to fill.
    Please ease us into any changes. If you need an example of how well we do, check into the archives and see what happened when Konstantin changed to the current colour scheme!!!

    We will ALL miss you but I'm certain that we also wish you the best in the adventure of the next part of your life! :-) Thank you for all that you have done in regards to this board for all of us. :) I know that this is the best site that I have ever seen in my life or been a part of. Thank You so very much.

    Talia...WELCOME!!! I hope that things go smoothly for you in your new endeavor with this board. :)

    Hopefully we will get to see pics of the Gorilla and his new Mrs. :D (Please? )

    Good bye and best wishes to Mr. and Mrs. Gorilla... I wish you wedded bliss! (I'm celebrating my 36th anniversary tomorrow!)

    And welcome TaliaRose... what a lovely name... My hope is that you'll be patient with "torons" like me... sigh... My goal is to stay pals with all the techno-brainiacs so that when they take over the world, they'll take me under their wings...

    Fortunately, my sewing machine is mechanical!! (My folks gave me a Bernina 830 in 1975 for graduation from college.) It's still humming along and they won't know what a wonderful gift it was until we meet in heaven...

    Happy Quilting!!! (and crafting)

    Haha! I was thinking about the color scheme change also! Oh, poor Konstantin sure had his hands full trying to appease everyone. He did a great job! We'll miss him. Best wishes!

    Talia, welcome! Please think very, very carefully, about changing the color scheme! :shock: That was a difficult period for many QB members! Hope you get out your sewing machine and break into your stash soon and give some beginner blocks a try. If you hang around here you'll get lots of inspiration!

    I haven't been here very long, but have already learned A LOT! Welcome, TaliaRose, to a great adventure. I love your kitties, too. Are they siblings? My two are sisters, but you'd never know it by looking at them. We think they had separate Daddies. Their Mom was a stray a friend of mine took in. She was a Tabby, but had three short haired tabbies and three coal black long hairs. We took one of each. Having two is so much better than just one. Hope you enjoy yourself here.

    Contratulatons, Konstantin! You are embarking on a wonderful adventure yourself. You will be missed. Do please drop by from time to time to keep us up to date on your new life.
