Small New Blog Meet Up

Hi new bloggers! Isn't this wonderful of Lynne to help out those of us who are new at this blogging stuff.
I am retired, as you can tell from my blogname! I started quilting almost 2 years ago and took classes at my local quilt shop and of course I became completely hooked. I think I even dream about fabric! I love the process of picking a pattern and then the hardest part for me is picking fabric. There is so much to know- warm, cool, dark, light. big. small. It's mind numbing at times for me, but then I just start and it comes together. Sometimes better than others!
I hope everyone jumps in and checks out each others' blogs. Happy quilting everyone!!
