Hi Fiona - I've been through Dingwall on my way up to Caithness/Orkney. I love Northern Scotland. Many good quilters up there, too. I have friends in Caithness who travel to Inverness quite often to take classes, retreats, etc. My ancestors are from Aberdeen (Thom), Orkney (Bremner) and Argyle (McNeil). I've been lucky enough to go to all of those places. Just keep sewing, it gets easier! Charlie

Hi Fiona,

I have a sister that lives on the Isle of Sky, are you anywhere near there?

Hi Fiona, I feel your pain! I avoided curves like the plague until I invested in this curve foot. Have a look!

Hello Fiona ! Nice to hear that you are enjoying quilting and learning new technics. It looked like a new world was opening in front of me when I started quilting and I think you can explore it again and again and never be disappointed... I could not find that much time recently to sit down and quilt but I am looking forward to having far much time pretty soon. I have got a few projects in store and one or two quilts almost done or half done - enough to keep me busy ! Let me introduce myself briefly - I am a Frenchspeaking Belgian, born in 1951, single. I live and work in Mons, a lovely little town and I am interested in human sciences and crafts. I like reading and cooking and I am a "cat person". These are my last days at work, I am getting retired on Dec 1st but I saved as many as "days-off" as possible in order to leave as soon as possible so I think that I will be able to stay at home starting from October 1st. I was trained as a social worker post graduated in mental health and I am working for the Belgian railways company since 1974 plus 18 months before in an other company. I think it is time to close the "work chapter" after 39 years and 11 months and to take time for myself - or at least not to be involved in time schedule and  imperious tasks any more, see what I mean ? But the big event of the coming weeks is that my daughter and her family (my grandson Edouard, 7 and my granddaughter Charlotte, 6) are coming back in Belgium and visiting next week for about 2 weeks and I am very excited of course. They moved to New Zealand 2 years ago and I cannot wait to see them especially my grandchildren. I hope we will have a great time alltogether after these (too) long 2 years. I plan to go and spend a few days in London in November - getting free or cheaper train tickets is a privilege of my job and travelling from Brussels to London with the Eurostar train is very easy and fast. Well that's all for today - I hope to hear from you soon ! Happy quilting in the meantime !
