A few years back I bought a Pfaff Grand Quilter and the Next Generation quilting frame thinking I would quilt my own quilts. Wow what a learning curve. I have quilted 25 or more quilts but I never felt like they were very good. I just didn't have the control (or it seemed) and most everything was a simple meander. So one day I took my quilter off the frame and put it on the table and did a few table runners. It made a huge difference. They looked so much better and I decided to try quilts without

..another one for the "O crap" file! But I added a piece and rescued all that work! Then finished with Left 13.

Well, after 23 years as Head Librarian for a small district library, I have decided to retire. There are lots of things happening here at the library and I think they need someone younger with more energy than I have to be at the helm. I'm a little excited and a lot sad about leaving.

My husband would love to hear that.
