I live in northwest Kansas and have been quilting for about12years. I retired 7 years ago from being City Clerk for 28 years and am wondering how I ever found the time to work. My days seem to always be full of things needing done. Once you retire, everyone seems to think you have all the time in the world to do what you want to do. Boy, are they wrong! Quilting is my newest hobby. I also love counted cross stitch and reading.
