New beginnings

The "quilt Police" showed at a group I was at.  Our retreat is suppose to be having the police, too.
Today is a new beginning for me.  I am trying something new, a blog!  I have decided to share my love of quilting and things I have learned.  I have a good friend Elaine that blogs and told me to give it a try--well, here goes.  This weekend I am going to a 3 day quilt retreat and plan on sewing until my machine starts yelling "stop".  I'll keep you posted on how much I get done and what others are doing.   Enjoy the future and God Bless.
