    Red face Hi from Germany

    Hi everyone,

    Im new to this forum (first time ever I joined a forum) and wanted to introduce myself My name is Andrea, 45 years old and from Germany. I am married and have two sons. Ive been a stay-at-home-mum for several years and when the kids grew older I decided to go to university which I finished about 1,5 years ago. And now Im a clinical psychologist (but not a therapist), working at the university in social psychology research and trying to achieve a PhD, which will take me at least another two or three years...
    Besides that, I like to read, especially fantasy and crime thriller, rock and metal music. And I like fabric

    I started sewing about 21 years ago after my first son was born. A few years later I somehow stopped sewing and have come back to it about a year ago when a friend posted a photo of a beautiful handbag on facebook that she had sewn.
    Ive sewn some clothing and a handbag so far and tried out some different blocks. I almost finished my very first, very easy quilt top, but it still needs a border and then I have to figure out how to actually quilt it.
    Unfortunately, I havent got enough time to sew very constantly. If I had a wish for free, Id like to have a four weeks vacation with nothing else to do but to sew and try out all these beautiful blocks Ive seen on the internet and in the youtube videos

    Kind regards from Germany,
    Andrea

    Welcome to the forum! I have just booked a trip to your beautiful country in November, I am very excited about visiting Germany, home of many of my family's ancestors and my husbands family as well! We are going to travel on the Danube, so we will be in Southeastern Germany.

    So youre almost German like me I hope you will be having a really nice time over here! But why in November? Its pretty cold then. I have never been to Eastern Germany, aside from a weekend trip to Berlin with girlfriends. I live in Western Germany in what we call "Kohlenpott" which has been the area of coal mining, and to a small amount still is. But I will be in the US pretty soon. My husband and I are visiting New York City for a few days in May

    My last post should have been an answer to your friendly welcome, Jean Sewing Machine. Takes me a little to figure out how things work here...
