Denys Posted: Mon, Feb 6 2012 10:46 AM

My name is Denys ( pronounced Denise). The spelling is archaic Flemish. Somehow I think my grandfather influenced my EDad who picked my first name. My grandpa was in the Battle of Ypres in Belgium during WWI and always said the Flemish were the nicest people. So that's where that came from.

I live in Northern New Hampshire. Our total year round population is 254. To get to a quilt shop of any kind is at least an hour's drive so I tend to do a lot of ordering on line. Not a great quilter but trying.

Welcome Denys!  Love your name.  I think unusual names, spellings, etc. are cool myself.  Of course, I've only met one other Georgia in my life until my granddaughter was named after me, so...

I'm from NW Minnesota and I also live in a small town but next to yours, we're a metropolis... about 1000 people.  The being a great qullter part is not a problem.  We are all just works in progress around here.  All the different skill levels of the members is a great benefit that is not listed in the member perks.  Lots of help available if you post a question.  Again, welcome... hope you enjoy QCA!

Hi Denys!  Welcome to QCA!!  You're right up the road from Keepsake Quilting!  I'm from southern NH but living in SW Texas now.  Cold, snowy winters are a thing of the past.  Be sure to check out QNN TV and Craftsy.  You'll learn lots !  Looking forward to seeing some of your quilts.

we're all great quilters, denys.  some of us make,   hmm, let me think how to say this, more well constructed quilts than others?    some of us aren't carrying around  a full spool of thread, some of our needles aren't so sharp, sometimes our pincushions are empty ( this is  usually temporary), and  there is one tentmaker in the mix, but we are all great quilters, and every quilt we make is more wonderful than the last one.  i know  yours are wonderful, too.
