Thanks so much for letting me join in the bee. Like Katie said, we met in person last week, and I was looking at her blogs and saw this one, saw that you might be in need of a 'filler' person so I jumped at the chance. I'm excited!
I thought I should at least introduce myself since I missed out on that the first time around!
I have lived in New Hampshire for almost 4 years now, and was in Salt Lake City for 7 years before that. I am originally from New Zealand and as Katie can attest, I talk kinda funny!! I met my husband - wait for it - online! So embarrassing:) But 11 years and 3 kids later, I think it worked?!
I can't remember a time when I wasn't quilting - I remember tying quilts with my mother when I was a child in the 70's and 80's. I got serious about quilting 17 years ago in 1993 when my manager at work bought in a copy of the quilt book "Watercolor quilts". I was mesmerized - I never new quilts could look like that!
Now my passion is applique, needleturn to be specific. But I can do a bit of everything:) I was lucky to marry my husband, as his mother is a quilt teacher and I really learned to get the basics right from her. I love my MIL!!
I am a stay at home Mum, and with just 1 left at home I have plenty of time to quilt!
I am so impressed with the blocks you all have made so far, and I am really excited to get working!
Hillary, if you are missing out on getting your blocks done this month because of the change, I would love to do them for you! Like I said, I have lots of time to quilt ;)
I'm off to look at all your blogs!!
