IT IS OFFICIAL!!

It is definately official, I have closed my machine quilting business as of yesterday! After 10 of quilting for others I am now going to finish all my quilts. I will still quilt for friends and myself but that is all. YEAH!!!
The first thing I put in was my Christmas quilt. I love this fabric and besides this quilt, I have 2 table runners made from the same fabrics and my "Trick or Treat" baskets by Backbird Designs. It is so bright and cheery, it just makes me smile. :D
Have a great Sunday everyone! I just wanted to say, I am so looking forward to the first day of the rest of my life!

How ironic that even something you enjoy can turn into a chore when it turns into a job and not a hobby. Have fun finishing your own quilts -- with no schedule or pressure.

My day will come too.

cheers

Congrats....I'm trying to do both for customer and me...and could easily see losing me time. But for now this is ok with me. Happy retirement to your own fun quilting!
