Yes!  I am retired!  As of today, I have retired from the business side of needlepoint. 
From now on I stitch just for fun. 😊  Not that I haven't been having fun!!  Needlepoint is my passion and always will be, but no more deadlines, no more pressure (except for Christmas of course!).  Thank you all for your past business.  It has been a joy to see my designs come alive at your hands.

I have turned over my website to my dear friend, Rinda Just.  Some of you will know Rinda as past-president of ANG's online chapter, Cyberpointers.  Rinda is now your contact for my designs and will be handling orders, keeping the website going and my designs available.  Please continue to check the website from time to time!

Blog will continue, sporadically, as I get around to reporting in and taking photos of works in progress.  I will have lots to show you soon.

Congratulations on your well-earned retirement! Your business is in great hands with Rinda.

Enjoy this holiday season without the nagging thoughts of business in the back of your brain.

I can't wait to see where life takes you!

Dear Liz, I'm so happy for you and wish you the most joyous of retirements! Thank you for sharing your lovely designs with us for so long. I had such fun two years ago with the Leaping Trout collage; now it's hanging in the bedroom of a dear friend whose late father was an avid trout fisherman. And your Rainbow Horses are giving pleasure to the dear friend and former horse owner for whom I stitched them. When I think of how many other lives your work must have enriched, my gratitude grows. All the best for a happy, relaxed future.

Congratulations on making the decision to retire! You'll enjoy stitching as simply an art and process that you enjoy, designing as a way to express your ideas to please yourself and nobody else, and the freedom to take as long as you want and need to complete something. I'm glad Rinda is going to continue the business aspect; I'd hate to see your work go out of print, as so many others' work has done when they retired.

Please do keep us posted on what you're doing. I love reading your posts and watching the progress of what comes out of your mind and hands. Take a break, but don't make us wait too long!

Congratulations...the moment we all strive for. I am glad you will stay in touch. I plan on stitching more of your designs but in retirement I seem to have less time and more wants!
Best of Liuck

What Brenda said—retirement is when you get really busy having fun!
