Give Away Celebration!!!

It is my last day working in the hospital!!!  I am officially retiring from my life as a Registered Nurse and  continuing on in a life that is wide open!  To Celebrate I am having a Give Away! and there will be 5 lucky winners!  Remember a few post back I talk about these amazing Clips !  Keith at Hancock Fabrics is sponsoring the Give Away by providing me with a box of 50!  I divided them up into groups of 10 which is perfect for tacking a binding...you may like them so much you will need to purchase full box of your own.  Included in the Give Away is a cute pouch to hold the clips and a variety of 6 quilt labels!!!  All you have to do is be a registered follower of the Woolie Blog, leave a comment in celebration!!! on Sunday Enzo's dog dish will cough up 5 winners!  Best Wishes!  If you have a blog please pass on the Give Away...retirement conga line!!!



Yesterday Lori and I went to Anne's house for a Applique Tutorial.  If you have ever seen Anne's applique you will know why we consider her the Queen of Applique!  I love this photo cause she is reprimanding Lori for not listening, ROFLOL...not really but it looks like we are in trouble...I of course was teacher's pet!  I am very excited about this because I have several months of the Stars and Sprigs BOM backed up and it is all applique!



I had to take photo of Anne's design wall because there is so much to admire and sooooo much to long for!  Yep, this girl is in deep! lol


I love her quilt cabinet...so many beautiful quilts!


This is her latest project, so beautiful!


Have a wonderful Wednesday, don't forget to sign up for the Give Away and pass on the news!

  8. Ah-h-h retirement...sweet words. I also retired in May (the 5th, Cinco de Mayo!)fourteen years ago. Being an RN is an admirable profession and I know you will be missed. I'm sure there are UFO's awaiting your attention and many new realms of quilting to travel to. Enjoy the journey!

  20. Congratulations Anna!! You will LOVE retirement. I'm from Van. Island, BC but am sitting in (somewhat) sunny Cannon Beach right now. We've been RVing down the coast for the past two weeks and I've visited almost all the quilt shops. I've certainly helped out the Oregon economy, love the lower US prices and no tax. Sure wish I was visiting the shops in your area, as the wool has been scarce on the coast.
    Thanks for the chance at the giveaway, I think I picked up a package of those clips, they look wonderful.

  27. Congratulations on your retirement! I retired two years ago from teaching. Sometimes I have to pinch myself to make sure it's real - I'm having so much fun. It helps that my first grandchild was born within a week of my last day of work. I babysit her every other day during the school year - life is good!

  29. Wow, I admire you for making the decision to retire! I , too, am a RN, 41 years emergency nursing, but am struggling to make that decision. I do think, however that my body is doing it for me...my sciatica is so much worse after working a shift. Enjoy all you have looking ahead!
