Retirement is getting closer by the hour...
Can you tell that I am getting excited?
I guess I need to change my "About Me" soon.

A big surprise from my husband wishing me the best in my retirement. They are very fragrant and making my empty office enjoyable on my last two days of WORK.

Nice Spring arrangement and balloon from my wonderful daughter in honor of my retirement.

I had a busy day organizing a sewing event for our charity project for the Missouri River Quilt Guild. We had 15 members come to donate their time and talents to make quilts for our local Veterans Hospital long term care facility. A local business was kind enough to let us use their conference center as a sweat shop. I want to share a few pictures of our busy day.
We have received some donations from local organazitions to help us with the cost for this project.

Anna Marie busy at work. She is also our photographer. Thanks for taking these pictures Anna Marie.

This is a photo of myself with Linda, past president and Sharon,current president. How do you like or matching T-shirts?

The above label will be placed on all the quilts that we will be donating to the VA hospital.

Look at this featherweight hard at work. What a beautiful machine...
