Hello and thank you to Lizzie for allowing me to join. I don't have my pattern yet so I will mostly read everyone's posts and comment once in a while if I have something to add. My name is Eileen Keane and I live in the Hudson Valley between NYC and Albany. We've lived here for 27 years. Before that, we lived in Westchester; much closer to NYC. I have the most supportive husband, Mike, who sort of understands my love for quilting since he's made one himself and has started a second one. Now applique, he's not too sure of but he likes to see me happy. We have a son, David, who's married to the greatest girl, Alicia. They've blessed us with our 21 month old grandson, Tyler. I never knew I could love anyone so much!! I have my own home based longarm quilting business. I've been doing this for 10 years now. Wow, how time flies. I'm still learning-I probably will be until I decide to stop altogether. So that's me. I love hand applique but since there are more quilts than there is time to make them, I'm going to be taking a class in machine applique at MQX in April. I don't think I'll be doing the CWB by machine though. I want to enjoy every minute. Talk to you soon.
