    How did I not know about this forum!

    Wow I have just stumbled across this forum for quilting. I am offically addicted to quilting, just wish I had more time to sew. At the moment I go every Wednesday from 6-9pm which are my hours of sanity.

    I'm currently working on
    An appliqued family tree/photo quilt for MIL
    A simple panel and border quilt for DS
    A flannette quilt-as-you-go project for DD

    Hoping to have some pics of my latest quilts soon. I would love to hear from any other quilters here!

    I am frantically trying to finish a cot quilt for my SIL who is due in about three week's or so. Almost finished the top. But, as usual things stuff up when you are rushed. I am a leave it to the last minute type of crafter.... grrr

    Well done leanne - can't wait to see the pics

    Tali - that dress is gorgeous!

    I am suppose to be finishing my MIL quilt but have just found out my quilting group has been canned :-( I am devasated - it was the only time I actually got to sit down and sew. Hoping to find something similar somewhere else but this one was great as we would just bring along whatever we were working on and the teacher would help us if we got stuck. So sad

    I just finished my new little nephew's quilt. He arrived three weeks early on Thursday, so everything stopped and I have been quilting for two days now. There are some pics in my gallery.

    Sarah - Bmr about your quilting group being canned. If only you lived closer, I meet up with a couple of relos on a Friday night and it's a great way to get things done.
