Hello new paper piecing friends! I love paper piecing and am looking forward to new avenues....several of you have mentioned Craftsy..... I signed up for Carol Doake's class....the first project I did was ? Mariner's compass, I believe? Twin quilt put together but not quilted...2nd project was Dream Weaver for a charity project...patriotic colors...it was posted on their site as I finished it! :).  It's been a few months since I've done any pp so am ready to learn again....hope I do better than signing up for this group...I see I've done it 3 times! Not computer smart, lacking in memory but certainly ready for some pp challenges!

Oh yea, I go by SoBuzy! As that I am ------ as I am sure all of you are as well! And although I am a farm girl, I now reside at Lake Ozark, a house NOT big enough for my quilting hobby!

Welcome SoBuzy. Glad to have you with us.

Check out "Pages" for project ideas, group projects and interesting links. We're in a bit of a lull with all the holiday activity but we will be starting Jinny Beyer's Moonglow next year. The pattern is available as a free download. A few of us (like me) may be finishing up Harry Potter Project of Doom. 

Please feel free to share your projects and ideas with us.

Nice to meet you also, Spudgrandma!

 

I have to agree with you on always needed more room. I have way to many hobbies, way to many wip's & then there is the stashes.

My house just got "smaller".  For 8 years I have kept my sewing in my sewing room. We had an electrical problem over the summer and my husband has not worked on it yet. Still I brought my machine down and took it up every day. Until Christmas.  The tree came down and so did my sewing machine, table and all.  I plopped it right in the middle of the living room.  Let's see if the electric gets fixed now! :)

Good luck with that.  Husbands have a way of not noticing things, he probably doesn't even know you have moved your sewing there - unless of course it is in front of the television. lol

It is living between his computer and the TV. Lola.  And he helped bring it down.  I promptly went up and totally opened out my cut table so it takes up the space and he doesn't have any ideas that space will become his.
