    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?

    I just got a mailing today w a coupon good Jan 5-7 (Sun-Tues) for 25% off your entire purchase. I believe you can find it on-line, if you didn't get one. Have fun!

    Congratulations on the retirement.
    I bet you spend more than the gift cards are worth. I know I always do. I'm like a kid in a candy store, so I don't go often.

    Yes, congrats.!! Enjoy spending your gift cards. Do you have a specific project in mind? Or just going to add to your stash?

    Congratulations on your retirement. Sounds like you must have been telling everyone at work what you plan to do with your time now! Enjoy it.

    Happy, Happy retirement. The freedom is amazing, just being able to decide what you want to do without the long list of have to dos. Have fun!

    Thanks everyone for the well wishes on my retirement. I plan on enjoying it as much as possible.
    Joyce, that is the flyer that I got a couple days ago. I'm waiting until Jan 5-7 to shop. That way I can use any 50% off coupons in addition to the 25% off total purchase coupon. What a deal, huh?
