Oh, I Hope Not!

I went to a meeting tonight, and someone said something like "what you find fun when your time is limited turns out to be not fun when you have all the time in the world." I hope that's not true!! Do you think it is??

I've loved quilting for eleven years now, and don't see myself changing that. I've also continued quilting like a fiend during the summer months when I had more free time.

Now that I'm about to retire, is my love of quilting going to stop just because I have "all the time in the world?" I hope not! I hope she's wrong, at least about me.

Four days left! Wheeee!

...working on the nine-patch challenge.. making one per day all summer long. I'm a tiny bit ahead of the date, because I know there will be days I can't do it. I've decided to make these out of "adult" fabrics, more or less.. we'll see how it turns out in the end.

He and his sister are both members of the Class of 2010.. he from h.s., she from college.

I am thinking you have to be open to doing new things so that the old holds joy... something like that!

What a strange comment. I had always thought I would like quilting but didn't really get into it until I retired and had the time. I have always read a lot and now that I have the time I read just as much or more. Now when it comes to cleaning the house I might tend to agree. I now have more time to clean and do less!!

More time = more quilts = more FUN!!!

Lucky you. :-)

Oh gosh, somewhere I goofed up my blog roll and deleted a bunch of my friends. Here I found you again. Four days to go...I don't know when I had time to work when I thought of all the stuff that I do retired.
It's a bit of an ajustment, but oh what a time in our life!

what a sour comment! Besides, you never really have all the time in the world. There is still the house, the family, church obligations, etc. You and your quilts will have a great time! Enjoy!
