have been telling myself all spring I wanted to take a snapshot of the blossoms of the trees to share, but life wouldn’t slow down. With the wind storms of late, I thought I waited too late. But Don and I stepped out this evening and I grabbed my quilt block and camera. With the patience of a saint, we got about a mile up the road and he pulled over for the photography session. Here is the Spring house block for my Four Seasons block of the month.
We’ve got Chelsey’s freshman Orientation for the next couple of days. I got some hand quilting set up for the journey. I imagine this trip will make the entire college thing real. Her future roommate, a friend from home, is going also. Maybe we’ll get time for some quilt shopping. I don’t need anything – period. I’m trying to live with the reality that there will be two sets of college tuition and living expenses coming out of the budget. But even Don says, “Hey, were going to set you up with a quilt budget you can’t do without that….” Just when you gott’em figured out they say something nice….
It’s raining to beat the band right now – Eric called from downstate telling me horror stories about gathering buggys in the Kmart parking lot with the thunder and lightning serenading him…another positive reason why that kid needs to be in college…but his “life lessons” are just too funny sometimes.
