    Default I was promised y'all wouldn't bite...

    ... so I guess I'll say hi. My name is Leslee, and I promised myself years ago when I started sewing clothing that I would *not* get into quilting. Yeah. Then I had a kid and decided she needed an quilted alphabet wall hanging for her first birthday, but that would be it. Yeah. That worked out real well for me.

    Anyway, I've been lurking for a bit, and finally decided I should be a good girl and introduce myself. My leisurely sewing time is quite limited (the aforementioned kid is now four, and four is doing my head in), but hopefully being at least semi-active here will encourage me to finish up some projects so I can join in the fun of sharing.

    Welcome from Wisconsin. As you have found out there is no recovering when the quilting bug bites. Best just give in.

    Remember, people will see your quilts long after you are gone. . . Not your housework!!

    Welcome!
    We all sew as much as we are able around here. Sometimes that is not very much when life and family barge in!
    Glad to meet you!

    Welcome from another Wisconsinite....once the quilt bug bites there is no going back, it may retreat for awhile and then it bites again only harder...might just as well quit the fighting and give in...you will feel better for it!

    Welcome from New York. Keep sewing even if just a bit there is always time. I always found little snippets of time before work , being and early bird, or while dinner was cooking or something. Have to make a wee amount of time for you to keep your sanity. Now kids are grown not out of the house but grown so I have more time if I split it between work and my other time sink online games. skip the housework that can always wait
