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!
I power sewed this afternoon and got half of this baby quilt done...the fabric is by MODA and Mary E..."Friends and ?" how pitiful is that? I can't remember the name. This was a kit I got from the Country Threads booth last April at the quilt show in Chicago...Sharon showed the kit on her blog a week or so ago...we both bought one...mine aged almost a year...it's really fun to do and this is happy, happy fabric. I hope to get to sew a good bit tomorrow...maybe I can finish...I'd be a very happy girl!
