emtpy nesters

well its finally official.... at least till one of them comes back...!
wemoved my 18 year old into the dorm over the weekend. lock stock and everythign
but a barrel. even with all the shopping we did in the weeks before, we still had
a 2-3 hour wally world mega cart loading trip on saturday. made even more fun by the fact that everyone in hammond mustve been doing the same thing! it was practically claustrophic in there. the only thing we didnt get was a microwave and as it turns out her roomie brought one the next day. there were soem anxious moments when it was time to leave saturday night. she was bound and determined to go to a school where she didnt know anyone.....and since she;s a veyr outgoing social butterfly, will do fine. but that first night alone was a little daunting. you know things are gettign better when you get the *i;m too busy to talk but i need this info* phone calls. ;-)
and i guess if this has to be quilt related i can say that the rag quilt i made her
several years ago looked wonderful at the end of the bed and was a nice cozy familiar touch of home for her.....(that and her mega teddy bear from her boyfriend). AND she gathered togetherall of her high school tshirts into a nice big pile in my studio b4 she left so i coudl (in my *spare time*) make her a quilt with them.
so now all i need to do is get home form work at a reasonable hour with a little bit of energy left adn get back to fiber work.
