A 5 month Sabbatical

I started to work part time without stopping my very full retired life and it finally just got to be too much. So, I finished my duties as programs chair for Friendship Quilters and didn't take on any new ones.  Our wonderful local quilt shop, The Crazy 9 Patch closed a couple of months ago so my tenure as a quilting teacher ended naturally at that venue.  I am teaching my last class which ends in January at Poway Sewing and that will free up a little more time.  I have a break from subbing until January 1 when I will work 2 to 3 days a week until school ends in June.  Because of all the busyness, I stopped blogging for awhile. I didn't have much to show anyway as I hadn't been quilting all that much.

I do want to share "Falling Leaves"  which is Bonnie Hunter's Celtic Solstice Mystery Quilt from 2 years ago.  Just got it back from the binder's and I love it!

This quilt will grace the guest room bed during the fall.  Since the quilt shop closed a few sit and sews have cropped up and I am happily quilting with the girls again.  Life is good!

Hi there! How nice to see a post here today. Love your Falling Leaves - the purples and greens are gorgeous together. So sorry your quilt shop closed, but I'm looking forward to reading what you're up to now that you have more time on your hands. :)))
