Julie - welcome to QCA and welcome to retirement.  It does give you tons of time to quilt - I am a good example of that.  I retired and my quilt life started full time.  Please post your progress - what kind of quilt are you starting?  I am so nosey...teehee...

I have been retired since 2002 - I did 21 years in the AF and then started getting sick - diagnosed with a multitude of problems - RA, OA and quite a few others... but they are of no consequence... they allowed me to retire and take up my passion...

Welcome...

Welcome Juliebelle.  Congratulations on your retirement  You won't have to wonder what you are going to do with your time as you can spend all day on the computer between these forums and QNN and at the end of the day have not sewn a seam.  Fun:-)

Congratulations Juliebelle! You retired EXACTLY, to the day, one year before I will be retiring.  I am SO looking forward to it and to having time to quilt.

What did you retire from?  What type of quilt are you starting?  Keep us posted on your sewing progress and on your adjustment to a more leisurely lifestyle.

Welcome, Juliebelle! Congratulations on your retirement. I 'retired' via layoff last July. It has been so nice to have time to quilt and not rush as well as being able to do it in an empty house. Now that the weather's nice again, my puppy isn't as content to lay at my feet and wait for "just one more block" but that's okay, too, because during the day my time's my own. Enjoy!

Welcom to QCA Juliebelle.  I retired eight years ago (I can't believe it--the time has flown) and enjoy it so much and I  hope you do, too.  It's great having your own schedule and time to quilt.  What type of quilts do you like to make?

I worked in the mortgage insurance industry for 25 years and the last 2 years were a whirlwind with what has happened to the housing mkt.  I have 1 daughter and a 4 year old grandson who is the love of my life.   My husband is teaching me the ropes of being retired since he been retired for about 10 years. I am starting to get the hang of doing as much or as little as I want to.  I will post a photo next week hopefully---have been under the weather with allergy issues for the last 2 days but I plan to get back to it tomorrow.

I've been retired a little over a year and am loving having more time to quilt.  I don't have to look for the quick and easy patterns, can take my time and enjoy some challenges.  With a LITTLE housework and cooking and reading, gardening, and quilting my days are full.  Also enjoy listening to books on CD while I sew.
