After teaching for 24 years and then fulfilling my dream of having a quilt shop, I retired the end of August 2007. Having the shop for almost 8 years was wonderful...I had a great time, met lots of people that I am happy to call friends, but the time came to retire. Andy retired in April, so the time was right. I'm loving spending time with him and getting to go see my 2 grandsons, granddaughter, son and daughter-in-law whenever I want. And I get to SEW!
It's been a pretty productive week...got the baby quilt top done and put the back together, I got 1 soldier quilt top done and ready to go to my friend Jami and I made a dog bed for the shelter...1 yard of fabric for the outside cover and a couple month's a trimmings off of blocks, from straightening fabric, the dog ears off half square triangles. The shelter loves them because they're all cotton and they can be washed and dried a million times and they usually send them home with the dogs when they get adopted...I can make more.
