    Has asked me if I would like to work for her for a few hours now and again. I am SOOOO happy. I retired earlier this year after working in the health service for many years and so it will be so nice to get "back out there" again.
    She hopes to get larger premises in the future and wants a few people who can cover for her when she does teaching, workshops or quilt shows. It is my first day next Tuesday and am really looking forward to it !!
    She has also asked me if I will sew some blocks up for a bom she wants to launch in the shop. I cannot believe it and am really thrilled she has asked me.

    What a great opportunity for you. I'd love to do that, too. Only problem would be is that I would spend all the money I make on fabric!

    I'm thrilled for you! :-) :-) :-)

    Do you think you'll ever get to bring home a check? I think I would spend all of mine right there and never get to put a penny into the bank. :lol: :lol: :lol::

    That sounds like so much fun! I secretly (I guess not so secretly anymore!) want to take over one of the LQS's when the owner retires. Enjoy it!

    Congratulations!!!!! I have some friends who work in our LQS, and the money they make keeps them in fabric but does not put food on the table. That would be heaven to me!!

    Now that is something I would like to do when I retire in 6 years. And a litle teaching, of course....just to stimulate the shop's economy!
