    I am retired. Was a Medical Social Worker with a speciality in Mental Health and Aging. I was also a certified Activity Therapist. I have been retired now for 29 years. Quilting has been a major pass time as well as paper crafting of just about any kind.

    I am employed. Admin assistant. Sewing has been a good therapy tool for me, peace of mind! I still have a few years before I can retire. I don't know really what I'd do if I did retire. I've been so use to working since I was 13 years old.
    Family is a priority, not a convenience!
    Take time to be friendly... It's the road to happiness.
    Take time to give... It is too short a day to be selfish.

    Retired Systems Analyst. Loved the job, hated how much of it I had to do to keep my job and reputation. 60 - 80 hour weeks killed the enthusiasm. I have a long arm but will Not quilt for money as that makes it a job, and I don't want to work (like that) again.

    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.
