And she became a little sad that it was over.
Jessica's quilt is finally finished. BIG THANKS to my mother who watched Sebastian all afternoon yesterday while I sewed the three layers together! Its such a good feeling to know that I made this with my little blingy machine and that I can do another one for myself someday! These fabrics are so beautiful together and with the chenille backing and coordinating binding, its truly a special piece. Jessica, you're going to stay toasty warm this winter!
Thank you for the comments along the way. I enjoyed this big project and especially enjoyed meeting someone online that turned out to be someone I would have gotten along with really well if we had gone to college together.
We're flying away tomorrow at noon for three weeks of family get togethers in the Midwest. The machine stays here. I've been thinking of projects I could bring with me to work on while S naps in MO and OK but I know I'm kidding myself. I think it'll be a sweet time to let the crafting rest and give some time to the people I don't see often enough. I'll still be connected to the internet so I'm not disappearing, just relocating for awhile. Sebastian gets to see Brett's family for the first time since October '06 and I think we'll get a fun visit from high school friends and Elsie and Emma!
So, here's to safe travels and smooth transitions. If you're the praying kind, I'd love to be on your list tomorrow.
