My New Adventure!!

Great news! Last week I retired!! I have grand plans to do a lot of sewing. There has been much celebrating and meeting friends for lunch. Things will soon morph into my new normal and the studio awaits me. I have already done some rearranging – even set up my mini Keurig. Now how’s that for a sign of commitment?! Pohutukawa (Large) small block (Large) My big tackle right now is this wall quilt. (Also knowing what day of the week it is!) It is a pattern from New Zealand’s Kiwi Quilts called Pohutukawa (New Zealand’s Christmas flower) by Mary Metcalf Designs..  What I have left are eighteen (18) 3 1/2 inch blocks that have nine pieces each. They are shapes, not rectangles. And the fabric is different in each. I have really been challenged but am determined to complete this. I don’t have enough of the fabric I need to complete one of the borders, so I will be searching. It will be joyous when I get to the borders! Please join me and follow me on my new adventure. There is some travel ahead. I plan to reconnect with my garden. Many books are waiting to be read. And mostly, I will enjoy every wonderful moment I have been given.
