“Have Moved On”

After I realized, I could have all kinds of usernames, passwords, etc. associated with my email and groups I might join online, I would very often include identifying names or words relating to my nursing profession. 

When I was forced to retire due to my health in 2009 I was crushed.  As a toddler of three years old when I saw nurses with their caps and black stripe, I knew I wanted to be a registered nurse.  That picture drove me through eighteen years of education with setbacks; but I finally graduated from nursing in 1975.  I then worked 30+ years casually, part time, and fulltime never changing my career.

But now I find my self doing much the same with my quilting.  I am so grateful, I have found something that gives me as much satisfaction as my nursing did for so many years.  I have realized that the satisfaction has come from doing something for someone, else as is nursing.  I have loved making my quilts for my special grandchilldren.  So yes — “I Have Moved On”.

    1. No, but I have two little toddler granddaughters (both turning three this year) that I am sure would love them — what a great idea for Christmas. I even think I have enough fabric left from their own quilts I have made them. I could make them in minature. Thank for that wonderful idea! Do you do a lot of quilting?

    2. I hope two make two this for two little girls that have just lost their grandpa and grandma–they seem to need me so I will make them each one for their “Barbie Dolls” — how big would you make them?

  1. You asked if I do a lot of quilting. I have quilted in the past, but I’m more of a crafter than a true quilter. My daughters each have miniature quilts for their dolls, I’ve done wall-hanging quilts, and I have a quilted chicken pincushion pattern that I made a dozen of and gave away for Christmas. If I ever finish the one I’m working on now, I’ll post it on my Pinterest page so you can see my pattern and the results, if you’re interested. Here’s a link to my Pinterest page: http://pinterest.com/chellywood1/stuff-to-blog-about-later/

    1. They are wonderful. I have seen many of them, but I had no idea they had come from one individual. You are truly talented.
