I am retired from the insurance industry. Worked for 33 years with the same compnay. But did not start until all my children were in school. I have 6 grand children, aging from 26 years to 3 years. I am married for 48 years and have lived in the same state all my life. I like to travel, but not to far from home. Took a trip this last year and was gone for 6 weeks and that was much to long to be away from family. Saw most of our wonderful country, but was exhausting. Love to sew, do machine embroidery and am learning to quilt. Have 3 full sized quilts under my belt ( not the best, but they keep getting better) am better with wall hangings and table runners and baby quilts, so maybe that is where I will stay.
