Let's introduce ourselves to everyone!

It's been awhile since we've done a specific thread to share about ourselves. Since we have so many new folks, I thought one central thread would be helpful. (Doesn't hurt to refresh the memories of my old & tired brain, either! LOL)

My name is Jennifer. I'm 39, married (for 7 1/2 years) and the stay-at-home mom to Cynthia age 5 1/2 and Jason age 2 1/2. My husband also has twins that are almost 18 and graduating high school in a few weeks. We homeschool the little ones. We also have a 14 year old australian shepherd dog and a 1 year old siberian husky, a turtle, a tadpole, and a pond with koi.

As far as quilting goes, I have a Janome 8080 that I love to death, an old Kenmore, a Juki on my quilt frame and 3 antiques one of which works. I machine piece and machine quilt everything...only dabbling in hand piecing and hand quilting. I don't care much for applique but have done it a few times in a variety of ways.

I've been quilting steadily since I was about 18, but made my first quilt when I was 10 or so. I learned garment sewing when I was 8 years old. I've quilted many many a quilt on my old kenmore...up to king sized. Boy am I happy to finally have a large frame to work from.

Oh, and I live in Virginia if you hadn't figured it out!

Okay...now that you know all about me....who's next!????
