Hi everyone! I am so pleased to discover a UK based forum as I live Buckinghamshire! I have been on American ones for several years but am looking forward to being on in here as well.

I mainly quilt and have been making bags and simple hime furnishings. I love to paper piece (the more detailed and complicated the better) and have tried most types of hand sewing.

I would love to expand my repertoire even further so I’m looking forward to having a rummage around previous posts and getting stuck in.

Welcome from me too. It's great to have a new Darkside member - you'll be made to feel right at home by all the other quilters on here. I love paper piecing too (I assume you mean FPP and not EPP) and I agree, the more complicated the better. :) Looking forward to seeing what you make.

Hi,

Yes Kenora I do mainly FPP. Although I have made an EPP quilt and have a passacaglia EPP quilt on the back burner for when I feel the need to do some hand work.

I was going to post a picture of my latest FPP quilt but it seems I have to pay to be able to do that?

I had to look up passacaglia quilt. It's a millefiori.  Looks terribly detailed and complicated.

As a non-subscriber you can still post pictures by using an image hosting website and posting the link from there with the img tags. 

There are instructions for using Flickr here (third post down) and a comment about using lunapic, and there are instructions for using Imgur here.
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

Welcome to TSP. As @Acorn says, there are ways to share pictures without being a subscriber, but I think you need to have posted 25 times before you can include a link in your posts (admins - please correct this if it is wrong).
