I am starting a new chapter in my life...for health and sanity reasons I have quit my job to become a Lady of Leisure. After a crazy couple of weeks of getting a replacement "me" trained, it is done! My coworkers got me a cake and they all chipped in and sent me off with a hefty Joann's gift card! I cried, but already a huge burden is off my shoulders. Here is to a happier, if poorer me! Cheers!
This morning, I took Miss Molly out in the backyard to give her fur a good brush out. She had to run away to bark at a father pushing his kiddo in a stroller across the street. They stopped and waved and then stayed and watched as Molly got brushed and waved again as we went back inside. I must remember to dress nicer and wear a bra next time we go outside if the neighbors are going stop to watch!
Here is my new start, another Blackbird Designs pin pillow. This has been nice to stitch so far. I really enjoy the dense motifs stuffed into the small area. I'm stitching with my usual DMC, loving the tweeded colors! If you look close, you can see two different colored threads in my needle. Very pretty!
Now, I am off to stitch and maybe even clean house a little. I do hope no one stops by...I am still braless! And enjoying every minute of it!
Thank you for visiting my blog today!
Enjoy your newfound freedom - good for you making the choice.
Good luck with your new life!
Congratulations on the early retirement! I work ten hours a week, I cannot imagine going back to full time work! When would I stitch?
Best wishes to you on your new status of Lady of Leisure! I like your new start. Molly is a cutie!
Congratulations!! Enjoy every moment of your 'new beginning'. xo Diana
Congratulations. Enjoy all that extra time that you will have for stitching. Molly looks happy with her brushed out coat.
You've already learned the biggest perk of being retired! Enjoy every minute!
Welcome to your next chapter!! Enjoy!
Enjoy your retirement! Stitch a lot!
Enjoy your 'retirement' - you will find that you are definitely NOT a 'lady of leisure'. :)
Congratulations on your promotion to Lady of Leisure! It's sounds fabulous and cannot wait until I can do it too.
Congrats on your retirement! May each day bring you joy!
Enjoy your freedom in more ways than one. Just be comfortable.
Congratulations on being brave enough to say 'enough'! Imagine how much stitching you'll get done now, although I have to say that I still struggle to stitch as much as I would like..
Congrats on your new freedom. I'm counting down the days to when I'm released. Love your new start, I need to pull out one of my Blackbird charts and give it a whirl.
Hope you enjoy your freedom, looking forward to loads more posts with stitching, quilting and Molly.
That's awesome, though I might be just a tad jealous 😉 Maybe you'll find a little spare time to design a new reindeer this year. Hope so!
Health is priority #1....congrats on becoming a lady of leisure! I love that pic of Molly! :-)
Congrats!! Enjoy your bra-less days! And such a sweet new start!
sincere congrats sharon, wishing you many happy days doing as you please!
Congratulations on your decision!
Retirement is definitely a busy life too! Lol ! Enjoy! Happy Stitching and relaxing! :)
Enjoy your new peaceful life.
Enjoy the freedom and well, I must say bra-less days. Wishing you lots of happy stitching!
I'm so glad you've made a new lifestyle choice and it's making you happy. Looking forward to seeing your latest project grow!
Good for you, the life of stitching leisure!
Sweet picture of Molly, I'm sure she doesn't care if you're braless.
Cute start, keep stitching and clean later!
