Don and I are enjoying our retirement and doing what we want to do now. In 2009 we started making a few things for friends, participated in a few craft shows and On Pens and Needles was born (our daughter came up with the name).
Don works in the garage with his scroll saw, lathe, band saw, drill press, paint and lacquer. Our dog Buddy keeps him company and interrupts Don to get some play time in.
I turned one of our bedrooms in to a nice sewing/embroidery area. Don built a large cutting table and a nice L-shaped sewing area where I keep my serger, high speed sewing machine and an embroidery/sewing combination machine. Across the room is my 6 needle embroidery machine and a large cabinet where fabric/supplies are stored.
