    Fabric shopping here I come!

    I am retiring this Friday and am looking forward to doing more quilting. My department gave me a little going away party last week and presented me with a $100.00 gift card from Joann's. Another co-worker gave me a $20.00 gift card from Joann's. You can probably guess where I will be in a week or so. I received a flyer on Saturday saying that there will be a good sale the week of Jan. 6. Yippee!!!

    I was there yesterday to pick up Velcro for a church project. Since I had a 40% and a 50% coupon, I bought myself a new cutting mat and a Fons & Porter marking pencil....my own Christmas gifts!! I knew exactly what I wanted! Have fun!

    Congrats! You will be amazed, however, at how quickly your day goes. The old maxim about "I don't know how I had time to work" is really true!

    Congratulations on your retirement and welcome to the 'don't know how I had time to work' club.

    I'd rather spend money on my quilting hobby than the therapist.... I'm probably $$$ ahead.... and I'm happy!!

    Congrats on retirement. I never wanted to work so my retirement has a double blessing. For the most part my time is my own and I love every minute! Quilt on!

    Good for you! I've been semi retired for the last 6 years, picking up a part time job whenever I felt the urge!

    Congratulations! I hope you have a terrific retirement.
    When the last child finished college I handed in my resignation that very day. I haven't regretted it one minute. I love waking up and doing exactly what I want to do for the day.
    Got fabric?
