    Default Hello from Columbia, MO

    hello, hello!~

    I'm a fairly new serious quilter... I've put a few quilt tops together over the years, but never focused on it to improve piecing or ventured to fun patterns... never applique. Then, this year i was staring at the bookshelves full of scrapbook albums and decided it was time to do something different. Instead of glueing pictures to paper for warm fuzzies, I decided to take up quilting for real warmth.

    I'm 40 years old and live in Columbia, MO with my awesome husband and amazing stepdaughter (15). We have 2 lovely furbabies, Newman (orange tabby) and Fast Eddie (Flame/Red Point Siamese). They enjoy my new found craft, too. I'm a computer programmer as a full time job. I volunteer with Girl Scouts and this is my 8th year as a Leader (I have a Senior troop of 7 girls... Freshman in HS... ). I also own a small business that designs patch programs for scouts and other youth groups. I keep busy...

    Just yesterday I decided to write a list of the quilting projects I completed this summer and was shocked to see I am working on number 10! That doesn't even count the coasters I'm making for Christmas. OH!! And I did the Row by Row experience this year and turned in a finished quilt (though it was not very well done, but it was done!) to a shop in New Florence first and got the prize package. It's was sooooo exciting.

    I'm hoping to gain knowledge and read through posts and drool over lovely quilt photos.

    Yeah!! Another one in my neck of the woods. I actually live in SE Kansas but spend a lot of time in Missouri. Maybe we could meet up sometime.
