I discovered the rags_and_bones when I (in my other LJ identity as galileah) was looking for other LJ folk with an Interest in Bedouins. That aside...
I've joined as veryty, my main LJ that includes my being a quiltmaker interested in all kinds of textiles and embellishments. I'm looking forward to reading back through old entries of this LJ community -- first glance, looks great! And enjoying accounts and images of what others are up to is 'way faster than plodding away on my many unfinished quilts!
Also I realize that my sole LJ icon-image (titled "SWR-MJF") is a little blah for this crowd -- so now I can start dreaming up a more likely design. That's going to be fun (and again, faster than hand-quilting...)
