My son and daughter-in-law were lucky enough to find a house they liked and could afford, so we helped move them. I didn't take very good photos, but this is of their very lovely kitchen.
It feels good to have them settling in.
And soon after they moved, my daughter graduated (Dr. Alex now--whoohoo!). We moved her home so she could prepare and pack for her next move.
|Packing mess for weeks!|
While she was "packing", we came across the pillow I made for her undergraduate years (some 9 years ago--yikes--no wonder she feels like she's been in school forever!)
It's made with old jeans (obviously).
The flower section is actually one I embroidered on my pant leg back in the hippy days when I was in middle school. I saved it when the jeans wore out. I can't believe I had saved it all those years, but it was nice to find a perfect use for it. (Makes me wonder how many other ancient things are in my sewing room!)
The pockets were taken from jeans, and topstitched onto other jeans when necessary.
This is the other side. Pant leg seams were cut to use in the side panels, so the topstitching could be there as an accent.
Then we were off, moving her to Oregon, where we got to spend a few wonderful days on the chilly coast, enjoying every moment.
At least until we had to say goodbye.. :(
I did manage to squeeze in a bit of sewing, a Roseville piggy,
a few more Just Takes Two blocks,
and a couple of Flower Garden blocks.
And now you're pretty much up to date!
There are a couple things in process, but no photos to show, and if you've read all this, that's really quite enough--poor you! :)
