I picked up quilting last October as a way to get out and meet new people and learn a new craft.  I found that I absolutely love it!!!!  Have just started learning embroidery on the machine as well.

What fun this is.  I have taken on some pretty awesome projects and they are challenging but very fun.  Would love to see what others in my are are doing as well as all over.

Welcome to the club, Cay.  I'm not in your area but wanted to welcome you anyway.  Quilting is quite addictive, isn't it.

Karla, it is....and thank you.  I have always appreciated a good quilt but now I really appreciate all of the work that goes into one and that in fact, in can be a team project!!! 

Have a wonderful evening!

Welcome Cay!  When I picked up quilting as a retirement hobby, my hubby thought I'd be alone in my sewing room every day.  He had no idea how often I'd be gone from home for guild meetings, sewing days, retreats, and shop hops.  Quilting really is a wonderfully social hobby!

Looking forward to getting to know you better.

Welcome Cay.  I welcomed you over in another thread before I saw your post here.  Where abouts in Illinois are you.  We have a number of gals in that area.  I grew up on the south side of Chicago.
