    Default Greetings from The Big Easy!

    Hi everyone,

    I'm a set costumer for film and television by profession, and I also take costume commissions. I'm an intermediate advanced sewer of more than 30 years, and began my first legit quilt about 4 or 5 years ago. Since then, I've finished only 3 quilts, and made about a dozen of quilt tops. [I need to get to the actual quilting part and finish them, right?! sigh....]

    I found MSQC through Jenny's Jelly Roll Rug video (see the results as my avatar), and I've since fallen down the wonderous rabbit hole that is MSQC. In exploring, I came across MSQC's "Make Three Totes/Purses With One Charm Pack!" video, and it inspired me to use a stash of mini charms to create the bag below.

    "Totes" excited to be here! And now, I'm trying to figure out how to do the "Quilting is My Happy Place" Retreat next March....

    Welcome from Colorado, where today it's sunny & 90 deg. My sewing is on hold until after my son's visit & other obligations. I haven't been very productive (with sewing/quilting) for several weeks. Love your tote.

    Welcome to the forum from Missouri. Your tote is so nice. You will learn a lot here and we help each other when we get stuck or just for opinions.

    Welcome to the forum and greetings from Orleans, suburb of Canada's capital. Try to keep ahead of the UFO tops. One by one, they will get done, then magically you will notice they multiply.

    What a fun job. My step son has been to LA several times, working as photographer on Star Wars last 3 movies. He loves the west coast.

    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.

    Thanks, everyone for the warm welcome.

    Found a better photo for my avatar. Here's my JR rug: Click image for larger version.

ID:	160665 I decided to try it, because I've been recovering from surgery and wanted something that didn't need too much brain power.

    I'm also quite serious about coming to a M* retreat, and I'm working on finding more info on them in the forums ( tried the search function, using "retreat", and I'm working my way through the list that came up). I have so many questions!). If anyone would be willing to point me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated!
