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!
Just had to share this picture...My Prince Howie...
Now Howie says I really do need to explain...the day before the kids left we did a little furniture rearranging. This chair and ottoman are my absolute favorites...this is the comfiest chair...I call it my nest...it's a chair and a half so I can curl up with my quilt, watch TV, sleep, stitch whatever I want...well, when we moved to this house 8 years ago we decided that we wanted a loveseat and couch, along with Andy's chair for the family/living room, that's what would fit best and we thought we'd get more seating...so my favorite chair went up to my sewing room. We had another loveseat that we put in Andy's office...well my chair didn't get a lot of use up in my sewing room and I always missed it. So while we had Josh here I talked the guys into moving furniture for me...my chair and ottoman came down...the leather loveseat went to Andy's office and the older denim loveseat went up to the sewing room. I'm thrilled and as you can see, so is Howie. He and Zack used to sit on this ottoman together when they were little, then when they got bigger only Zack got up there, it was his favorite spot...now it's Howie's favorite spot.
I've been cleaning, sorting, and reorganizing in my sewing room...I am posting some stuff over at Brown Quilts and more and there will be more to come as soon as I sort some more! Good prices...maybe there's something that you've been looking for.
