They didn't give me enough choices in the avatar as it should have more grey hair, LOL. I've been sewing since I was a small girl. Took a break for awhile and now have taken it back up again. I'm probably at the advanced beginner stage with quilting. Do fairly well at it. Prefer older style patterns and patching rather than applique. I used to do a lot of raw-edge appliques but lately, I've gotten away from it. Now I do some paper piecing and a lot of strip style quilting. Eventually I'll finish my first quilt (I have five quilt tops in process right now).
