Hello again! Thanks for adding me as a friend!  That's so great that you got to get a new car!  Mine is falling apart on me, but there's no way I can get another one.  My husband goes to school full-time and only works part time and I'm home full-time on disability, so we don't exactly have much money.  Which is kind of depressing to me this time of year!  It's been this way for four years now; every since my husbands sawmill closed down and I worked full-time.  We had it made an I didn't even know it.  Now it's extremely hard, but hopefully the school will pay off.  I was hesitant about him starting school at the age of 50, but we're in a very small town and there just aren't any jobs.  The schooling isn't costing anything because he's on a special program for displaced workers, so he could really pass that up!

I haven't been doing too much sewing lately.  I was making things to sell in my etsy shop, and then I messed up on a table topper and lost the mood.  So now I'm just taking a bit of a break and reading my quilting books and magazines.  I'll be working on Valentine's things to sell soon.  I have a book on improvisional piecing, which is totally not me, but I thought if I stepped out of my box a little bit that might help inspire me.

What kinds of quilts do you like to make?  I prefer traditional quilts using contemporary or bright fabrics, but I also love the reproduciton 30's prints.  I enjoy piecing, but lately I've been wanting to learn how to applique.  I've done a few easy things, but that's about it.  I don't do the needleturned applique' though...I just use fusible web and raw edges sewn witha blanket stitch.

Well, I hope you're having an good week and enjoying your new car!  Take care!

I noticed on your blog that we share other hobbies as well...scrapbooking, card making and stamping.  For the past few years though I've been spending more time quilting than anything else!

Hi Sally!  I've been here for a few weeks now and am really enjoying it.  This is my first social networking site.  I don't blog or use facebook, so this is all new to me.  I'm almost 50 and when I retired 5 years ago I took up quilting.  I am hooked!  I make quilts for gifts, to sell and to donate.  I mainly donate to "Quilts for Kids" and the "Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative".

I just wanted to say hello and welcome!
