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 got the absolutely most wonderful birthday present in the mail this week...thank you so much Darlene and Ron...yes Ron aka Mr. Daze made the quilt holder...Darlene made this quilt...Civil War fabrics, tiny 4 patches and wool letters...I'm sure they heard me squealing all the way in Arizona when I opened this package. Could there be any more perfect gift for an old retired teacher who loves Civil War repro fabrics? I am truly a LUCKY, LUCKY girl! Thank you Darlene and Ron! What a great birthday!
