Hi: to Everyone from Oshkosh, WI: I enjoy everything about this website and the great quilters out there. It is great to find answers/help with my quilting.  My problem is always finding the time to quilt, since I work full-time as a home care nurse.  So I really love my days off when I am able to quilt.   I am slow at it though; I have 2 quilts started and 1 baby quilt finished... New grandbaby due in 3 weeks!

Congrats on the new grandbaby! And welcome from another wisconsinite. I think that most of us have a hard time coming up with some time to sew due to job schedules and even just life. But this place is great and I hope that you find all the help you may need

Welcome Dawn!

I was born in Fon du Lac, but mostly lived in the Appleton and Hilbert area growing up. I'm still a Packer fan - serious Packer fan.  Welcome to QCA - you will enjoy it here.

No, this is number 4;  This is the first grandchild since I started quilting though.  I finished the baby quilt and am now embellishing cloth diapers for burp towels using fabric and machine embroidery. Has been  great fun.  I, also, want to make each of the new baby's siblings a themed pillowcase so they don't feel left out.  Lots of work to do before the end of the month!  Stay warm over there in Michigan. We are in 70's this week, probably the last hurrah!

Thanks for the welcome.  Grandbaby girl, Hadley, was born a little early, on Oct 8th, down there by you in Kansas City, MO; their family lives adjacent to Liberty, MO! It's a small world isn't it.  I love that area of the country.  Dawn
