    Yes we are all very lucky. I also miss Eddie when he is away too long. His quilts are spectacular.

    I have something that I think that applies here
    "I live in my own little world.---but it's ok, they all know me here." I have this on the front of my car's license's plate. Several women have asked if they could copy it for their on use. Be my guest.

    I bless the day I found this place. Three years ago when I hit 60 and retired from work I bought my first sewing machine, a third hand Toyota from eBay, I also bought a rotary cutter, cutting mat, ruler and a few pieces of fabric. Now I have enough stuff to start my own quilt shop and in two weeks time I will be going to the National Quilt Show at the NEC in Birmingham here in the UK. The first thing I will do when I get there is to hit the sewing machine stands because at last I can afford to buy a BRAND NEW MACHINE, I feel as excited as a child just before Christmas. At long last I will be able to have a go at machine quilting and freehand machine embroidery. Since joining in with all you wonderful people on here it has opened so many doors of interest for me I'm busy nearly all day doing something I love. A big thank you one and all.

    I agree with everything everyone has said about this board. I am addicted and spend WAY to much time here when I should be sewing (or cleaning) but what the hay, it's my home and my time and I'm old enough to choose to *do it or not*! Luckily, or not..., I don't have a job. My DH is disabled and in very poor health and my only job is to take care of him.

    BTW, I'm 56

    ... and if I didn't also spend so much time buying fabric, and looking at fabric, I would probably get three or four times as many quilts made. :-D

    Thanks all this is a wonderful site. I really enjoy every aspect of it. The tutorials are wonderful and so are the people who are so kind and full of knowledge. I read way more than I write! There is so much great information. Thank you so much!

    I agree with all the great comments on the board. I also spend way too much time on here but it is hard not to. I learn alot from all the great quilters on here & I love looking at everyone's finished or unfinished projects. I just love it here!

    By spending time here I am limiting my "carbon footprint"...
    Well, that's my excuse anyway! Seriously, this is a great place, with interesting people. Everyone has a story to tell and knowledge to pass on. It is a good community to belong to and by belonging we are enriching our lives and the lives of others. Long may it continue!

    Ditto to what everyone has said about this site.
    I love reading & learning things from all who share.

    BUT I must also say that there are some awesome quilters here who really care about others. A few I email & talk to everyday. A couple are on my yahoo.
    I am a lone quilter.... no one around me sews much less quilts. SO I have adopted ALL of you to be my quilting buddys.
