    4 years ago today I lost my best friend and quilting buddy, Betty O'Leary.  I just finished quilting this beautiful applique quilt top of hers as a tribute to her.

    I am right there with you Mary Beth.  Been waiting for the next contest. I need a Millie too.  Now that I am retired I could run a computer and hand guided system right next to each other.

    IBQLTN2 got a reaction from NHDeb in Counting down to retirement   
    I have 25 more days at work.  May 19th is my last day.  I have been at my office job for the last 27 years.  In December I turned 62 and wanted to retire then, but being a bookkeeper I had w-2's 1099's, all kinds of taxes and financials to get through first.  So in the beginning if March, I let my boss know that I would be retiring toward the end of May so he could find a replacement and I would have time to train them.  I am very excited but also a little worried that I jumped the gun.
    I hope that I don't regret it.  When working for so long I think it will be hard to not have someplace to go every morning.
    I am hoping to make my studio my first priority every morning.  If I can get into a routine of starting my day with at least a few hours of piecing or quilting or even cleaning and organizing my studio, that can help me restructure my retirement life.  Wish me luck!
     I haven't decided if I want to go into business of quilting for others yet.  Possibly down the road, but for right now I think I have enough ufo's to keep me going for awhile.
    Here is my latest work in progress.   I took out sone of yhose feathers that weren't very even and didn't cone out to the edge.

    Grand daughters visiting from Atlanta and they wanted to learn to sew.
    I gave them each a block of the month from left over guild projects.  They each made their blocks and chose a fabric for the border and backing.  They quilted the block on the long arm and then stitched it together with the serger.  So they learned to use 3 machines.  We are working on dress patterns now.
