    New from Quebec

    Hey there, I'm not really good at introductions, but I guess I'll tell you a bit about myself.

    I'm a foster mother in Canada, soon to be adopting two of my current children, one sooner than the other. I like to quilt when I have a free minute, so it takes a while for a project to get done, unless I have a little baby that keeps me up at night, then I have more time to sew. I try to make a blanket for each child that comes into my home, but funding and time (some babies only stay for days) don't always allow for it. I am trying to stockpile blankets for the kids that only stay a few days, funds don't always agree with that effort though.

    I'm trying to learn to crochet, I inherited a very nice set of crochet hooks from my mother-in-law and it bothers me that they aren't being used much.

    I have 3 cats and I breed hamsters. I've been married for 12 years and I hope to be moving into a new house in a couple years. One of my goals is to make all my own blankets, curtains and upholstery for the new house. Since I hope to have the house custom built, I'd like to furnish it with nice things that I wouldn't be able to afford if I bought them outright. Plus there's a lot of added pride in a home you've put so much work into.

    I'm happy to find a forum with people who love to quilt as much as I do!

      Yes, yes, congratulations on your adoptions!! That is a very neat thing you do to try to send a quilt with every child that is in your home. I love it. We are glad you are here and can't wait to see what you are working on.

        Welcome to our wonderful board!
        How wonderful you are adopting some children and what a super idea to try to give every child that comes to you - a quilt all their own. I'm sure it will stay with them for a very long time.

        Hugs,

        What if you woke up today and the only things you had were the things you thanked God for yesterday? :icon_hug:quilting trish
