Teresa Posted: Sun, Sep 30 2012 8:57 AM

I actually joined in January but have recently become active on the QB. It's going to take a little time to get to know the board but am learning. I actually started a gallery and joined a group! Hope to become friends with a lot of you! I already have a friend from another board. Let me tell you a little about myself. I am married to my 2nd hubby for 16 yrs now, I have 2 grown daughters. I am/was a nurse by profession but I also have a degree in electronics and my cosmetology license. I most recently completed radiation therapy (about a week ago) because of breast cancer. Fortunately, it was caught early. It was because of a friend of mine who emailed me to tell me she had breast cancer that I went for my mammogram. I hadn't gone for the past 2 yrs and it was because of her that I went this time, otherwise, I wouldn't have gone this yr. My rationale was "if I didn't feel a lump, I didn't need to go." Never again will I miss another mammo! Get those mammograms ladies! I'm very happy to be here, in life and in this group.

Hi Teresa! 

 

I've just joined today! I love quilting, patchwork and applique and have just got back into it! I have done a 2 year diploma so like to think I know a little about a lot of things but need more help from experienced quilters! I wish I lived in America but come from United Kingdom (England).

 

Hope to meet more quilters soon! Lindsey :-)

I am so glad to have one of my favorite friends from another board here too! Trying to recruit another friend or two from our EMAIL RAK group, time will tell if they join us here or not. Hugs Teresa, we ARE going to have fun here, of course with the two of us here are we really SURE they can handle our crazy wit? (of course I am really joking). HUGS my friend!!!

Oops, didn't relise I introduced myself on the wrong forum! Lol! It'll take a while I think to learn my way round here!

 

It's nice to see another quilting person from England! I get frustrated when I see some lovely fabrics from US and in particular Paula Nadelstern, whose fabrics I love!!! I think I've just about got enough fabrics to try making one of her (easyish!) quilts. 

Right now, I'm making a double bed size quilt for my daughter in Cath Kidston fabrics. I guess no-one is going to know what I'm talking about, so I will have to learn how to take pictures on my family's mobiles and download them to here!

Cath Kidston is quintessentially english, very pretty. This quilt is supposed to be a christmas present, so I'm working on it when I get home from work and again after dinner, and at the weekend, when I can fit it in. 

I was working it out in my head the other day that I've got 8 quilts on the go and 4 that need quilting! I was shocked! Time to get some quilts finished I think, lol!

Perhaps you lovely people will give me some encouragement!

Ok, need to go but hopefully speak soon, happy stitching, Lindsey :-)
