The OnlyChild and I have been packing and cleaning. She's getting ready to go to university in a city 5 hours south! I'm not sure it's sunk in quite yet that she will be leaving.
No more dishes left all over the house. No more baskets overflowing in the laundry room. No more backpack left right where I'm sure to trip over it.
And no more Friday Night Sew-ins with my girl. Or impromptu shopping trips. Or silly movies when we're home alone. Or fashion consultations (how will I dress myself?).
What am I going to do? It is going to be so weird without her around.
While we were doing some clothes-sorting this afternoon, we found this old t-shirt of hers and decided to make it into a pillow for her dorm room.
With a bit of Kona brown and a couple of buttons from Paris, it made a cute little pillow...perfect for a journalism student!
I also started a new project - another baby quilt. This time I'm using a Patisserie charm pack that Jen sent me ages ago and some Kona parchment. I had been "saving" the charm pack until I found the perfect little quilt pattern. So far I really like it, but I need to find some fabric for the borders, perhaps some hard-to-find Patisserie yardage...or not. I really need to cut down on my online fabric shopping now that I have to pay tuition!
I also have to keep busy so I don't spend too much time thinking about my baby chick leaving the nest...
