I am just joining, following an invitation.  I am very newly retired (6 weeks ago) and am so excited about now having the time to follow my passions for embroidery and quilting and learning to really do them correctly. I was super impressed by the entries in the gallery, beautiful work and quite inspirational. Looking forward to the day I can have something to contribute.  Thank you for allowing me to join, I think this will be fun!  :-)

Mary,

Welcome, you will absolutely love it here I promise.  Everyone here is very helpful and and so nice. Plus they are so funny I am surprised my laptop hasn't fallen to the floor with me from laughing so hard.  Post pics of your quilts so we can drool over them!

Mary,

Congratulations on your retirement. I am eagerly awaiting a break from school, so I can hole up in a sewing room and not come out for days.

Let us know when you post some pictures of your quilts.

Welcome, I am a new one also but love to hear about all the projects the ladies are doing. I read here that someone read that an average quilter buys 106 yards of fabric a year. That is  joke. I don't do that much quilting but know I buy more than that. I would hate to really find out how much I buy. Welcome again, Mary.

Welcome Mary, this really is a good place to be.  I felt the same way when I retired 3 years ago and I have not changed my mind.  I also do the embroidery with many of my quilts.  So jump right in there and remember, we want to see pictures of the quilts you do too.  This is also a great place to get help with any questions you have.
