    Default Missouri Star Quilt Junkie

    HI! I became addicted to quilting about one year. We became empty nesters and I wanted a hobby and always wanted to try quilting. Hundreds of dollars later I have completed several nice quilts and am building quite a stash for retirement in a few years. I Have so many great projects ahead of me! Work is really getting in the way of my quilting. My best friend and I visited MQC and the rest is history!

    Good for you... It only gets better after retirement! I live in a community of 55+... have for over 15yrs. and i will NEVER understand what people do all day without a hobby,,,, I get up every day... itching to get into that sewing room to begin or finish a project... Most goes to charity... Enjoy... being creative is such a joy))

    Welcome!

    Work truly does get in the way of what we want to do - quilt! I hope to be out in 18 months and can finally get to work on this stash - aka " STABLE retirement plan".

    St -stash
    A - acquired
    B - beyond
    L - life
    E - expectancy

    Welcome to the forum from Missouri. I've been retired almost 10 years and haven't looked back. I love having the space and the time for what I love to do...quilting and machine embroidery. Glad you joined us!
