Packing up.....what to take?
Believe it or not, she did not want me to make her a college quilt! Oh my heart!! Instead she wanted to take her Bat man comforter that has been on her bed a couple of years. She did take a lap quilt that I made for her about 6 years ago. She loves her familiar and well loved possessions more than new things.
The only item she wanted me to make was a set of microwaveable potholders using superhero fabric.
Here is my tutorial for making these: http://quiltandsewforever.blogspot.com/2014/08/microwave-bowl-holder-tutorial.html
Once I gave her the set, she then sweetly asked if she could also take two of our red soup bowls with her to college. Of course she can!!!!!!!
Not only will my home be minus any children now but I no longer have a vehicle of my own. We gave my Ford Escape to Kirsten to take to college. So now I'm stuck in this empty house all day. We almost forgot to put her new parking sticker on the back before heading off on that very long road trip.
This was taken the morning she left....arms loaded with last minute items.
I rode with Kirsten to keep her company and let dear hubby drive by himself in the Jeep.
Ready to say goodbye. I had strict orders from Kirsten that I was not allowed to cry in front of her. I held it together.
Watching her walk back to her dorm, alone, in the rain......
During our trip we were able to visit and spend an evening with our grandchildren before moving Kirsten into her dorm.
We drove back home on Saturday. Since then I've been cleaning and sewing a little. Got the last strip pieced to the top of the 42 Halloween quilt top.
Since we are in the middle of home updates and remodeling, my design wall can not be reached at the moment so back to using the floor to lay out all the blocks.
A few adjustments and now we have this.....
That's my progress update this far. Tomorrow I hope to start putting the top together....after a little more cleaning.
Hope you have a wonderful and productive day!
Until next time!
