Exciting news, I have made the decision (monumental for me) and I have retired. I am just so happy and really wonder why I didn't do it sooner. When you work in an increasingly poisonous environmental and you are constantly surrounded by people with huge ego problems, it tends to drain the creative juices, it was time for me to think of me! I was worried I would be bored..... hah! For one I have just discovered free motion quilting and I am hooked! Not sure why I even went down this road but now that I'm on it....I am having so much creative fun! A few quilts I have made since retiring. These were quilted on my home sewing machine, but I have just finished a long arm quilting course and I am thinking that is the way to go.
