BARBSCH Posted: Fri, Nov 5 2010 4:43 PM

I have been quilting off and on for many years. Last year I was laid off from my job and have plenty of time to Quilt. I am one of the quilters who has to finish a project before moving on. I just can't wait to see the finished project.

I was born in Buffalo New York but have been in Ca. for 30 years.

My daughter and Grandaughter live with me. Sarah is 11  and is learning to Quilt . She has made three throws so far, 13 tote bags and is working on pot holders for xmas gifts. My favorite part of sewing is teaching her how to sew.

I look forward to chatting with all of you.

Welcome Barb (?) 

Where abouts in Northern California.  I have a brother who lives in Kelseyville on Clear Lake.  I know it's above Santa Rosa.  When I visited my folks out there before they passed, I used to fly into either San Francisco or Sacremento.  Northern California is so pretty.

Welcome to the QCA forums, Barb; and welcome to the extremely small group of "those who must finish before starting something new" group. LOL!

Welcome!  Northern CA is beautiful - and doesn't have the Buffalo winters!  Your granddaughter is very lucky to be learning - and she sounds like an overachiver - 13 totebags!!!

Welcome Barb

Hope you enjoy the site.  I used to only do one project at a time now I tend to have 6 or 7 or more in the works at the same time.  This site makes it really hard to stick to one at a time.  There is always so many projects going on and I always have to do them....LOL>

Barb!

Welcome, I am also happy you are teaching your granddaughter.  I taught my best friend to quilt and she never even sewed before.  Miracles happen! LOL 

You will love this site --everyone is very nice and helpful.

WOW!  I am impressed -one project at a time.  I wish I could do that.  I am like Nana and everyone else--lots going at once--- and always thinking about future quilts.  LOL

Welcome to the club.  I also have to finish something before I move on. I think it is because I have no room left to store things.  Also I get excited to see the end result when I get a quilt half way done.  Then I have to watch out or I would spend all my time in the sewing room

  i'll need to work on you, too. hmmm, maybe you need some help with creative storage.  the car is a good place and has lots of room.  do you have an extra bathroom in your house?  you  don't really need two.  just think of how much fabric you could get in a bathtub.  the toaster takes up a lot of space, and who needs toasted bread anyway?   see, i bet i could come up with a lot of storage at you house.       gini

Ooh Gini, I think I need to hire you for tips on storage. I've run out of space in my sewing room. It's getting so I can no longer see the floor in there.
