My quilting business has always been a bit slow, but there have always been enough quilts to keep me going. Considering that I still work full time, that’s been fine with me. I’m never more than a month or two out, and I’m happy with the additional income. Suddenly, for the past week, I seem to get a call a day for quilting! One day I got two calls! Very strange. I am suddenly booked out to the middle of the summer. I think I like this. If things get busier, I may just have to quit my day job and start quilting full time. Nah, I need to get to that full retirement pension, but I now think I may be a little more comfortable, knowing that I will have enough additional income when the time does come to retire. The pension will pay the mortgage and all my bills (of which there are few), but that darned health insurance is the biggy that has me wondering if it’s wise to retire. I had thought I would possibly need to get a part-time job, perhaps in a store or a bank, but I think I may be able to do without that. Ah, life feels pretty good today.
I’ll finish and ship my little quilt to MQX this week and then load a huge custom quilt. I’m a bit nervous about this one. The customer was referred to me by Ronda, and I know I can’t do quite the wonderful job Ronda does, but I’m gonna give it a whirl! 😉
Wishing a great day to all on this Oregon day filled with liquid sunshine.
