Thank goodness I have one more this year....planning on taking it mid Sept. as both sons will be back at school by then, and the 5th grader too....just me and hubby, so when I get up to get daughter on the bus in the morning, hopefully I can motivate myself to get something done at my sewing table.....the last vacations, including the one just ending, have been nothing but run for everyone else....either job hunting, graduation stuff, going off to college shopping trips....etc....ready for…

Happy birthday, Karen~I hope you have a wonderful day!

I'm Bridget and I live in Seaside, Oregon.  I joined this site at the end of April and I'm really enjoying myself!  I joined several of the groups and that helped me to meet others quickly.  I've been quilting for almost 6 years and mainly make quilts to donate and to sell.  My favorite technique is piecework as well as machine quilting.

Anyway, I just wanted to say hello and happy birthday!
