Close to retirement and I can hardly wait. I have been quilting for over 20 years. 4th Generation Quilter on my mothers side. I have made about 65 quilts and have lots more to make yet. I belong to a small satellite group that we call the "YaYa Sisters". We meet twice a month on the first and last Wednesdays. We try to go on a retreat at least once a year somewhere within easy driving distance from here.
