    Cool New From Socorro NM

    Hello to all. I am not retired yet but hopefully in maybe 10 yrs will be. Came to NM by way of GA as a travel OR nurse and well this seems to be a great place to finish out my career. Will be permanent staff come March when my contract ends. Small town, great community hospital and wonderful folks. Also finally time to get back to quilting.

    My last and well only completed quilt was a dresden plate lap quilt back in 2006. My hope is to learn from others on this board, share what I can and get ideas on what works or doesn't. Have a real sewing room with lots of help from my dear husband of 27 yrs. This man even helped me hunt for bunnies for the fabhop when my work week ended up being longer than expected.

    Time to be quiet and get back to checking this board out to see what others are doing.

    Take care and have a good evening.

    Welcome! from Quebec city
    nice presentation. I was a travelling nurse also, but with the military. Nice to settle in a place and have time to think of some long term craft projects instead of packing and unpacking all the time. My sister in law is 10 years younger than me, works full time and has 4 grown up kids but she had made quilts for every body and their friends... in 15 minutes or more, here and there for almost 30 years she did not wait for retirement to be so productive. Even more, she handquilts all her quilts, a stich at a time she gets a long way!
    Have fun here, grab a big cup of coffee or tea because there is a lot to see and to learn on this board with so many excellent quilters. Lots of ideas for your future projects!

    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.

    Thanks to all for the warm welcome. Hope to be able to learn and help others, even if it is to report how not to do something.

    my only and firs quilt was handquilted also. I retired in 2003, did my last move in 2004 and finally got settled in a place I wished to call home for more than a couple of years... and I am still here wow a record for me to live in the same place for more than 3 ou 4 years. I took a quilting class in 2006 for small projects like placemats, pot holders and I learn a few different easy pattern and from there I decided to try to make different blocks which ended in my first quilt which is my avatar... slowly handquilting to get the practice. I am handquilting my second one and I started to piece my third one... No rush just fun and enjoyment... I guess that's what I want my retirement to be. a little at a time can go a long way!

    do you know about http://www.quilterscache.com/QuiltBlocksGalore.html
    lots of blocks to try! Keep it simple and enjoy!
