What was I thinking when I named my blog! I obviously thought that as a new retiree I was going to have all the time in the world to do whatever I please (and write about it!) My love of sewing does joyfully fill a lot of my time, but honestly, there is never enough of it!

I am the President of a traditional quilt guild in the Washington DC area, Needlechasers of Chevy Chase and a member of the DC Modern Quilt Guild. I truly love being part of both groups. The sharing of ideas and projects is so inspiring.

I have recently started teaching beginning sewing to adults using Shea Henderson’s book “School of Sewing”. It is such a pleasure to teach something that I love so much. I teach at the Finch Sewing Studio is Leesburg, VA where I have had to learn how to use their beautiful new Bernina sewing machines. I have sewn on a Bernina 1230 for the past 25 years and never thought I would want another machine. However, I have updated to a Bernina 770QE and my old 1230 is only being used when I sew away from home.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  1. Isn’t retirement great! I’m loving having the time to do things that I’ve thought about for years.

  2. Oh my goodness, I felt like I was reading about me! I just discovered your blog while doing a search for the Moneta dress.

    I too am a former R.N.. My dh and I have three daughters and I sewed for them as much as I could, loving every minute of it. And much of my sewing is now quilting, though I do have grand-babes to sew for now!

    I love my Bernina sewing machine and my Juki (who makes Bernina sergers) serger.

    I will be popping in again!
