I am retired and love it. I am a widow with one daugher and one grandson. I have an addiction to fabric and my stash is growing out of control. Recently I became interested in EPP and I am playing around with hexie's whenever I get a chance. I have been collecting reproductions and batiks for many years and they remain my fabrics of choice when I start a project. I love the piecing of the blocks but often stall when it's time to assemble and finish the quilt. Needless to say, I have a lot of UFO's.
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, paper piecing

I love your profile picture. It put a smile on my face. lol I hear what your saying about loving retirement. I tell people it's the best job I ever had. I too love fabric and have a ton of it all over the house. I'm trying to use up what I have before I go out and buy anymore but It seems I always have to pick up a missing color to anything I plan to make. I take in alterations as a way to suppliment my sewing addiction. But it consumes much of my time and I don't get to do my own fun sewing as much as I would like.
The challenge is out, lets see how many of us can join the wonderful new campaign called Stitching for Pink !!! Starts today until 30 October. Its gonna be so much fun with 10 projects to complete. Come on Embroiderers lets unite and join the fight against Breast Cancer !!!
