Hello ladies! I am new to quilting (and sewing, even). I've been learning from Eleanor's youtube videos, MSQC videos and my fabulous Mother-in-law. I'm not the fastest learner when it comes to sewing as cutting and sewing straight lines even seems to be a challenge for me, but I'm determined to master this because I love it so much. I'm hoping that one day I will be able to make some of the gorgeous quilts I've seen all of you make!
A little about me - I'm in my mid 40s and learning to sew for the first time. Bought myself a sewing machine recently, nothing fancy, an inexpensive Brother cs600i and am learning with that.
I work full-time as a Pharmacy Tech in Central Florida, so quilting is done mostly on my days off or when my schedule allows me to get home at a decent time.
Have just recently become the parent of an (official) adult, so suffering a little empty nest issues, but also moved in my aging parents to help take care of my father who is not in good health... so life for me is busy. I enjoy my time in my newly established (used to be son's room) sewing room as it's a chance for me to relax and be creative.
I also crochet, garden, and am an avid reader.
I hope to make some new quilter friends of all levels. I enjoy reading all of your posts and seeing all of the gorgeous quilts each of you make!
Looking forward learning from all of you!
