Hi, I'm Vivian from Hinton Alberta, Canada. Welcom, We live close the the mountains and I actually love the snow. (From the inside, not the outside. lets not get carried away!!) I joined a month or so ago and i'm sorry i didn't join sooner. My husband and i are poised to retire and i'll have to get internet at home instead of using the one at work.
Hi! I'm Katherine and I have been Quilting for over 20 years but I also like to sew; my latest project is sewing dresses for little girls in South Africa, but I would also like to include the little boys by making them shorts. Do you know where I can get a pattern for little boys shorts. Happy Quilting!
Welcome Susan, Calano, and Katherine! So nice to make new friends.
Calano, the time zone isn't a factor for me, but because I can only get online here once a day, I know what you mean about the "chatting." I've gotten used to being half a day behind posting comments. Sometimes I just read and don't post because I know my comment will be way too late.
Susan, I may have questions for you. I am bound and determined to try paper piecing soon.

I learned about the dresses for little girls from South Africa on a NBC news program with Brian Williams, I have 40 dresses ready to send; I would like to make some shorts for the little boys in the 3 to 5 year old range. Update 4/2/2011: I have now made 45 dresses and 15 shorts that are on their way to South Africa! Katherine Parkin
