Wow! It's Friday!
I am just exhausted after my first week back at work. It's been a good week, but very busy. Between getting everything ready at school and preparing the OnlyChild for moving this weekend, I haven't had a single minute to work on my two unfinished projects - the Halloween cat wall-hanging and the Patisserie quilt. I really wanted to have a project completed to show you today, but I guess it will have to wait until things calm down a bit.
I do want to share something with you, though.
A few months ago, I contacted Melinda to ask if she would make a special little quilt for the OnlyChild. My blog friend Deb had commissioned Melinda to make a quilt of her Jack Russell Terriers a while back and I thought it was wonderful. I sent Melinda a few pictures of Abby, Derby and Bosun (now deceased) and she created this amazing piece of art:
I gave it to the OnlyChild a couple of days ago and she was completely over the moon! She almost cried when she saw how well Melinda had captured the personality and unique look of each of the pups. I think Melinda's work is incredible! (Thank you again, Melinda!)
This art quilt will hang in the OnlyChild's residence room - a little piece of home to help her adjust. I'm driving her down to school on Sunday...and driving back by myself on Monday. It's going to be a big adjustment for both of us but I'm so excited for her. I loved being in university and I hope she enjoys it as much as I did.
I'll let you know how things go, and maybe snap a few pictures of her dorm room to show you.
Have a wonderful long weekend!
