Raewyn Posted: Sat, Mar 2 2013 1:38 AM

G'Day I'm Raewyn from Australia. I joined the site today and am looking forward to making new friends and new quilts. I've been machine quilting for a year and a half. I love it. My aim is to learn to quilt my tops and also to learn applique. I don't really have any preference for a quilt I like all of them and want to try all techniques. I like making mystery quilts I'm working my way through a Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt at present. Jump in at the deep end right? I've joined the mystery quilt group here and can't wait to get started.

I'm a full time working middle aged woman married to a most wonderful man (he does the cooking so I can sew how good is that!) We have a teenage daughter I have three fur babies. A beagle called Busta , a border collie called Ziggy and a tabby called Chloe and that is my family.

Welcome Raewyn.

A few of us made Bonnie Hunter's mystery in the Scrap Happy group and the appliqué group is just starting a new project that is suitable for beginners.

Welcome Raewyn.  I have 5 Australian cousins.  My aunt in WWII stow away on the merchant marine ship of her boyfriend.  The captain didn't discover her until half way back to Australia, and he then performed the marriage ceremony.  I have yet to visit Australia, but my mother and sister did.

Glad you can join us.  You will find many friends here.

Hi, Raewyn. Good to meet 'cha! Sounds like you have, pretty much, learned your way around our site.

I have a husband, one son, and 4 fur babies. A Yorkie named Lily, three contrary cats, Mother, Kitty,a nd Emmy Lu. The cats are out making paw prints in the little bit of snow we got last night. Their little paw prints are so cute.

Have a great time here. We all do.

           G'Day I'm Raewyn from Australia,

Oh, I love your name, Raewyn!  not sure how to say it but it's pretty in writing.  Welcome, where in Australia are you from?

Nice to meet you, Raewyn!  I suppose as we are anxiously awaiting spring's arrival that you are saying goodbye to summer.  It was fun reading your introduction - I can "hear" your wonderful accent in your writing.

Hello everyone and thank you so much for the lovely welcome I was looking for a button to reply to this thread and have worked out how to drive it now. Yeah! It is a beautiful day here on the central coast. I was at quilt class yesterday (Luvin it) and started a lap quilt which I'm quite happy with.  I've nearly finished the blocks (cheated a little because they were a kit already cut) but have to add my own background/borders/sashing Darn that means I'll have to go buy some fabric (giggle). I have two to make for my sisters in New Zealand. I also have to quilt a dolls quilt I have sandwiched together for my mum. So they are my current projects. I'll post piccies when I finish them. Have a great sewing day!
