Tonight's picture walk...

All I can say is "Wow!"..... If been a blissful state of a whirlwind friends...... Between it being the end of the school year and a few retirement celebrations.... Lets just say its been very busy around my little corner of the world! Its a bitter sweet feeling knowing I have taught in the classrooms of Southern Pines Primary for the last time after so, so many years! But, with retirement from education affords me the opportunity to spend more time on my Carolina Stitcher business and you guys~ By late 2017 I hope to be offering faster finishing timelines and offering more Carolina Stitcher products~ More to come!!   For now, I will offer this picture walk showcasing your beautiful stitching coupled with my finishing skills.... Enjoy

Congratulations on your retirement! I can't wait for mine but I'm still a few years away. It will probably hit you as feeling weird in August when school starts up again.

Sandy said...

Congratulations. I just celebrated my three year mark from teaching. It took a while to schedule my days and turn my old life off if I am real honest. I am loving retirement now except for the paycheck:) Can't wait to see what you do with Carolina Stitcher.

Karen said...

Lovely finishing as always, Faye. Really enjoy seeing how the Prim Stitcher freebie differs from stitcher to stitcher. Congratulations on your retirement!

Aah I'm sure it was a bittersweet moment to teach your last day. Congratulations on your successful career in teaching. You made a huge difference in so many young lives. I do look forward to see what is ahead in the stitching world for you. I know it will be special. As always your finishing is perfection. RJ @stitchingfriendsforever
