Thank you helou. I was military but only for 4 years. You are so right about being able to settle down. I hope to get quilts made for my granddaughters before the year is out. Still working on the sewing room and plan to see what others have done for ideas on what I might be able to do. My husband just gifted me with a Accuquilt Go and this weekend if I don't end up being called in will play with this. My only and first quilt was hand quilted, loved working on it and when finished was at a lost. It was like my evening ritual lol. Just so glad I found this board and will be checking out all I can.
