Hello Paula!  Thanks for writing!  You're so lucky to have other quilters to be around.  A quilt camp sounds like great fun!  Even though we have a few quilt shops around here, there isn't much going on.  I guess I assumed they'd all have classes and such, but the only one that has any kind of retreat is over an hour away and their retreats last three days and cost a pretty penny (which I can't really afford at this time).  That's why I'm really liking this site.  There are quilters from all walks of life and that makes it really interesting.  I joined this site back in April and I've been here ever day!  Of course I don't use facebook or anything else, so I have time to visit regularly. is soooo cold today!  I always procrastinate turning the heater on, but I think I'll give in here in a minute.  Seems like we had summer one day and fall the next.  Plus it's been raining two days straight so that cools it down as well.  I want to move south....far south!  Like San Deigo!  Actually, my dream spot is Santa Fe, NM.  I went on a vacation there and fell in love with it.  Of course I fell in love with Hawaii too when I was on a vacation there, but when we moved over it was a totally different story.  NOT the same Hawaii as a vacation!

So, are you working on any projects at the moment?  I'm trying to finish a table runner to put in my Etsy shop, which is practically empty.  I've just not really been in the mood; all that's left is the quilting and binding and I hope I can get myself to finish it soon because it's an autumn theme.  Then I want to make a Christmas table topper.  I used to make lap sized quilts the most, but during the holidays I tend to work on smaller projects for gifts and selling. 

Well, thanks again for writing!  I hope you'll enjoy it here as much as I do!

Hello!  I'm Bridget and I live in Seaside; where are you?  Seaside doesn't have a guild or any quilting groups, so I joined this site in hopes of meeting other quilters.  Do you have a guild or group in your area?  I really feeling like I'm missing out, but this is the nest best thing.  At first I had a hard time meeting other quilters, but once I joined some of the groups it was much easier; everyone is so friendly and helpful!  I belong to Newbies, piecing, machine quilting and a few others.

Anyway, I just wanted to say hello and welcome!
