been busy

I'm busy trying to get ready for the move and desperately trying to work on some projects before we live in the camper for a few months.  Here's some of what I've been working on:

I made two of these for the little girls.  Don't be too impressed cause I bought the fabric five years ago to make these for the big girls!

One of four blocks for a wallhanging for the living room.  I have to take the pacific NW with me to the desert.

Bear wallhanging for the guest/kids bath.  I have some awesome photos to add to that wall too.

Trying to finish learning how to knit TL's socks before we leave!
Enjoy your weekend everyone!

Has it really been that long?

I'm sorry that I haven't posted lately.  School just gets the best of me.  In May, we received some wonderful news.  My hubby made Master Chief!!  For those of you that don't know, Master Chief is the highest rank and enlisted member can achieve in the Navy.  We're so proud!

The week after, we received word that we'd be moving.  Panic!!  I wasn't ready to move!!  I've been busy finishing up my two classes and working on cleaning out the house.  I've been purging into two piles, thrift store and trash.  I'm all done now, thank goodness.  I have to now get ready to pack us up in the camper to live for possibly up to six months.  I'm working on lesson plans and going to be sewing some projects to hand quilt while we're in the camper.  I just bought a new lap hoop that I love!

We're still waiting on orders at this point.  Hopefully, they will arrive sometime soon so we can complete this.  I hate hanging around waiting.

We'll be heading back to Lemoore, CA.  Back to the desert.  Goodbye my beloved snow covered mountains, bald eagles, whales, sea lions, ocean view and onto black widow spiders, mice, brown foliage, and blistering heat.  Ugh.  Well, at least I have some wonderful friends and a great church and quilt guild to return to!

Happy quilting everyone!
