    Default Howdy from Texas

    Hi all,

    I'm Melissa and I just joined yesterday. I live in South Texas on the border, moved here 11 years ago from Oregon and hoping to get back to the West Coast some day.

    When I was in OR in December I wound up in a quilt shop and became a proud new member of the block of the month club. My hubby doesn't know what hit him. LOL One moment I was dragging him into the shop and the next we were shelling out a ton of $ to get started. I've never done one of these, but the quilt is so cute and it will be an incentive to actually finish.

    I'm no expert at quilting, I just dabble in it and have a few UFOs that just maybe I will get some mojo to finish. The major one is a t-shirt quilt I started for my son, was supposed to be a gift when he graduated high school. He has since graduated college!

    Welcome Melissa from Canada. I'm looking forward to seeing progress on your quilts. You might warn your husband this is your new addiction, which nobody is looking to cure.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.
