Hi...I'm new here as well! My name is Lynda and I am a 57 year old librarian. living in Oregon. My hubby and I will be married 32 years next month, we have 2 grown daughters...one lives here in Portland, the other lives in Boston. We are also expecting our first grandchild in August! I have been stitching since college...a long time! I really love samplers of all kinds and Quaker designs. I too have been admiring all of the wonderful squares being exchanged and am really looking forward to participating in this group and making lots of new stitching friends.I've signed up to start with round 8.
