    Just getting started.... after a long time

    My love of quilting was fostered by my Grandmother who was a Master Quilter and teacher. That was over 30 years ago. I was also always trying to find a way to improve, modernize or simplify quilting so that I could fit it into the life of being a military wife and mother of three. Approximately 7 years ago my everyday life became painful and difficult. After some tests I was diagnosed with RA. I struggled physically just getting out of bed. Then there was the myriad of meds to find what would work for me. During this period, my sewing room became a reminder of something that I felt I could no longer do. I carefully packed up (out of sight) my projects that I had started and put my machines away.

    Fast forward to now and the bug has bitten me again. I have just begun to take out my projects and set up an area to sew. My kids are grown and I now am finding time for me. I am a bit overwhelmed because quilting has come a long way. But I came upon this site when I was looking for a simpler way to do what I love. I consider myself a newbie and am so grateful I found this forum. Cannot wait to look around and be inspired!

                  Welcome to the forums and Welcome back to quilting/sewing. I'm glad you have found a way to work sewing back into your life. It is a lot of fun to create. If you don't overdo, it may even help with the stiffness in your hands and fingers.
