The past week has been so busy for me! I had family camping, I quit my job, got a new job, helped move two daughters home from college, and now started my new job.

I know that sounds so frivolous, but I have been job hunting for almost 4 months, and I got to the point where I had to quit whether I had something or not. Right after that I had a GREAT interview and got the job the same day. Whew!!!

At family camping I presented my sister in law and her husband with their wedding quilt. I know it's hard to see the blocks in this picture but it's so pretty outside!
Now we are trying to make room for two college students and their stuff. I cannot for the life of me figure out how they could fit all this stuff into half of a dorm room, and we can't fit it into a 2 story house!

Congradulations on your new employment! Sometimes you just need to quit for the respect of the self! Ask me how I know! lol Nice quilt! Enjoy the summer with your daughters. Keep well!

Oh, the quilt is lovely -- and it looks right at home outside. Congrats on the new job too -- I know what it's like to just HAVE to quit the old one, even before you have a new one.

As for the "stuff" -- it's magic stuff. It immediately expands when it gets to mom and dad's house and will not shrink again until they are back at school. (or at least, that's what I told my parents when they complained about my stuff over the summer)

Space issues! From Florida to Wisconsin - it is all relative! Love the quilt, it is so beautiful. Your color choices are gorgeous.
