Good morning everyone!  So happy to be here amongst you clever and experienced sewers. I've done a little sewing in the past and managed to gather material and all sorts of sewing aids. Having spent lockdown viewing youtube videos about all types of sewing, my mind is a muddle of what to do and where to start, and at the moment I feel like an artist afraid of a  blank canvas.  I'm interested in having a go at applique and quilting, and I know I should start with something small (though that's never stopped me from biting off more than I could chew in the past :)) Please bear with me as I have sooooo many questions.
Creativity is contagious, pass it on

Hello and welcome!  We love questions.   :)   
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

Hello from an ex (South) Derbyshire girl (near Swadlincote)  0_0

I know nothing about quilting, I make garments, but there's lots of very knowledgeable peeps on here.

Oh yes, I forgot to add that I grew up very close to Derbyshire - across the water from @Bodgeitandscarper, in the neighbouring county.  I'm not aware that we knew one another, but who knows?  We may have met at some point!

Welcome, I'm in NE Derbyshire just outside outside Chesterfield. I grew up in Manchester but love the Derbyshire countryside very much.

Welcome @Butterfly.  No question is too stupid to ask, so don't be shy.
