I just finished putting the last two borders on my Jubilee quilt! I'm so happy with how it turned out!
And yes, the top and bottom border are the same, the right border is different, and the left has no border at all! It matches my inspiration piece from the Red & White show.....and I love it! It's totally out of the box for me......woohoo!
I'm still drawing up the plan for the pieced back, but it won't be long before I can start cutting fabric! It will be a very simple back, cuz there is so much piecing on the top, I don't want it to weigh 80 pounds!
And boy, are things ever falling into place these days! Here's my really big news!.......
I just put in my two week's notice at work! I'm done! I'm totally done! I'll never have to work again! Woohoo! I'm so happy I could do cartwheels (and I've never done them before!) lol
A friend of ours who recently turned 62, told us he started his Social Security benefit. And John and I started thinking......why are we waiting!?! He's turning 63 in July, and our plan has always been to wait until he was 65 to start it. But really......why wait!?! So we did the math every which way you can, and figured it going out 20 years, and the difference over 20 years is only about $4,000! I was shocked!
MY SANITY IS WORTH $4,000! lol
So we made an appointment at the SS office, and started it right up! And the very next day, I gave my notice! My last day is May 25......and I'm so damned happy!
This just made so much sense to us. And really, all I want to do is spend time with John, and golf, and quilt, and travel. Two years ago, when John had prostate cancer, it struck us that you just never know what can happen, or what tomorrow will bring. He's totally cured, thank God, but anything can happen......any time! And we need to spend every minute we can together, and happy, and feeling good. And not wasting it at some stupid job that doesn't make a bit of difference in this world.
So.......in just two short little weeks, I might manage to post on this blog a little more often, too! It's a win-win! Yay!
Who knew turning 50 could be so good!?!
Have a great weekend!
