    Hello from England

    Hi, I'm Jo and I live in Lincolnshire England. I have been a sewer on and off for many years but have been quite ill for the last two and lost all interest and ability to sew. I have recently come across Jenny's tutorials and she has revived my interest. I think I have watched most of the tutorials and have gotten back into patchwork.
    So far I have a half finished table runner and a shoulder bag done. I am in the process of making another bag for my friend. These are based on the tote tutorial but I added pockets inside and a fastening flap on the front.

Glad you are feeling better , and can enjoy sewing again. Jenny's tutorials certainly cheer anyone up and motivate them to try !

            Jo welcome from central Missouri, USA. Having had to retire due to health issues I understand the loosing interest in things. I found quilting after retiring, although I have loved to look at quilts and dreamed of doing them prior to that. I don't think you will ever find nicer more helpful people anywhere that on this forum.

              Thank you all for your lovely welcome. It's awful to lose your interest isn't it Bob? I thought mine would never come back, and I still haven't got my art back but I'm getting there. It's great that you are now doing what you dreamed of.
              Maria, thank you for the invitation but I don't think I could manage that, I get tired very easily now.
              Barb, I'm pleased to be sewing again even if it is only small projects.

                        Hi Lilyjo. Welcome. Really glad to hear that you're back sewing. I've recently started up again after 20 odd years and I'm loving it.

                        I'm from Lincolnshire too hun.

                          Hi Renate and thanks. Hi Lorraine, I can't say I'm a Lincolnshire lass, first because I'm not a lass anymore and second I was born in Derbyshire, but I have lived here for 37 years.
