It's hard to believe I haven't been on Quilt With Us for almost 5 months. So much has happened; my beloved mother passed away after Christmas and I miss her terribly. Although she had a long good life and was healthy for most of her 91 years...I miss her.
Also my husband has decided to retire from his job in December of this year. We will be moving back home to Colorado, which we are really happy about. We will be close to most of our family and it will be much easier and faster to see our daughter, son-in-law, and granddaughter. It's hard to think about packing the house and doing all the paper work, etc. but we are planning to stay there forever. Although I realize things might change at least we won't be planning moves for our jobs anymore.
I've been doing quite a bit of quilting, knitting, wool applique, and reading. The quilt shop where I work is for sale. If it doesn't sell by July 1st, then she will liquidate. I'm finished adding to my stash because I knew we were moving. I don't need any more to pack! It's fun to dream about my new quilting space and think about having all of my fabric, books, thread, and patterns all organized and in one space with my yarn, a big cutting table island, and room for a friend or two.
Anyway, it's good to be back.
