Weekend Progress

WoW! This was a busy weekend. the DH and I had to split up as our oldest dd hada job intervies in Lexington Indiana and our middle DD had to be moved home from college. I got the middle one and Chris and Shelby headed for Indiana. They ended up staying in Madison, which, apparently, was fabulous. It is in Jefferson county and both of them thought the town was wonderful. It is on the Ohio river and there is a watefall in the town. They arrived on Thursday and drove around and walked around the town. Chris dropped Shelby off at the school where she had her interview. It is a school for troubled kids, middle school to high school aged, boys. She had to spend the night at the school as that is what she would be doing in her job there. She would be a small group counselor. Chris picked her up on Sat about 4pm and they headed home. The interview went really well and they will let her know about the job on Tues. Keep your fingers crossed!! Housing is cheap there too so she might even be able to get into a house there eventually.

I moved Kelsey home, not quite as much fun as the rest of the fam had, but it had to be done. It looked like a "stuff" bomb exploded in my living room!! It is no small feat combining 2 households!! I missed her but not all her "stuff!"

I did manage to finish an old baby quilt I had begun quite awhile ago. I had all the 9 patch units done and a friend's mother took all my setting triangles and set them on point in strips. I had to cut the sashing and sew it on as well as the borders. I got that all done and also sewed the back so it is ready to go to the quilter!! Another UFO finished and fabric from the stash used!!!

I also worked on the UT quilt. I got the blocks all sewn together and my son informed me that he didn't want it square, so I have to make 2 more rows, arrrrgh!!! I got the blocks all cut out but it will take me a little more time to sew the blocks. I also worked on the U of M quilt a little. It is all cut out, but last week I traced all the l "M"s and cut them out. This weekend I fused them all to the backgrounds, (there are 2 for each background, one on top of the other to make them stand out a lot!)

My good friend across the street, Marcia lost her mother on Friday. I made soup for her and her family as I remember how much I appreciated not haveing to cook when I lost my mom. It has been a difficult time for her and her family as her husband lost his mother about a month earlier. I knew Marcia's mom quite well and she will really be missed by her friends and family. Please keep my friend Marcia and her family in your prayers.

You are a good neighbor. Will the "Stuff" stay in the living room all summer? Keeping my fingers crossed for good news on the interview... no pictures of the quilts in progress?
