A special thanks goes to Vicki from 2 Bags Full who is hosting this amazing party.

So who am I and what to I do on my blog?

Well.....

My name is Carol and I blog here at Just Let Me Quilt.


My blog name came about because I worked full-time,
took care of an elderly lady, had a busy life as a mom and grandma,
and all I wanted to do was have more time to quilt.
I'm retired now, so I finally have more time to play with my sewing machine...yay!

A few things I love:

Quilting and sewing

Blog hopping with Madame Samm at sewwequilt.com

Snuggling with my Monkey Boys (grandsons)

Playing with my two dogs

Working on my family history

Writing and answering emails

In fact, I'm so happy you're here that I'm having a...

  4. Carol I learn something new everyday. After blogging with you for so long I did not know you are retired, that is so cool. I have ten years to go. I am not rushing it but dividing my time to do the things I love is challenging. Your grandsons are adorable!

  27. Hi Carol- You're an amazing lady! So many things to do, so little time, but you seem to squeeze them in. Being retired isn't any easier except your perspective changes. Now I get to do the things I want, but still -so many things to do, so little time! Thanks for sharing.

  34. I loved your Tammy bag for the She Who Sews hop. I also loved that huge bag for your embroidery unit. But my question is....did you digitize the design yourself? I thought the measure tape for the calves was so creative! sewingblogsarefun@yahoo.com
