    As soon as I read your post I too was thinking "gotta have a CLEAN garage floor" followed by "must be a NICE neighborhood" ... and then I had to check and sure enough, you're not in the frozen north. Ummm... those of us in snowy areas would have wet garage floors or icy ones, for quite a few months! ;)

    Thinking the same way, bring her on board! Cool that the two of you met. Having another creative mind is inspiring.

    That's how I felt last wk. when I served 3 days on jury duty. By the third day, we were all getting a little rummy & got to chatting when I discovered one of the women was not only a quilter but a long armer. She belongs to a lot of guilds & seems to be all over the place. I now have her ph.# for when I need final quilting done.

    Yes, I do to. She seems to be pretty laid back. Just in the little while we spent together, she told me a story about a couple of her quilts. One quilt was made with fabric from Guatemala. She said on the bus trip, people were buying pieces of fabric for her and she made a quilt with it. The next project she is planning on is a french braid. I'm glad I walked over yesterday to see what she was working on.

    Just had to send a quick note when I saw your signature. I'm a sewer/quilter and my mother is a tole painter. We just completed the enclosure of a 3 car carport into our 'great room' for painting and sewing. Nice to hear you have both talents!

    Have you thought about having her join our group? It is always great to have experienced quilters. Great find for you.

    How fun! I have a friend and several acquaintances who quilt. For a beginner it is very encouraging. Hope it works out for both of you.
