Nearly College Bound

The youngest of my four........... nearly college bound. He's a sophomore this year and has transferred to a college 30 miles from home and will be living in the dorm. He's left with a car load this morning. Tomorrow morning he and his girlfriend will each have their cars full and then he will only be coming home on the weekends for not quite a month. Then track season starts... He's a decathlon (does 8 events) and is so awesome. I will be updating you all to where you won't want to know anything else!!

Already I have been crying 'puddles'.... he says, "come on mom, it's only 30 miles away. We will be okay".... yeah, right; speak for yourself Ü. What I will miss the most is our late night talks

New fabric

Thanksgiving is a ways off, but I saw this cute 'turkey' print and I'll be making a table runner for myself! I've been making them for everyone but myself the past few years. ( I did get enough to make two however!)

And, I got a yard of this last week thinking it would be a pretty fall runner. I got so frustrated worrying about the lines in it that I decided maybe I'd make just a table cover and wouldn't have to do more that straighten the edges. Now, I think I'll just take it out every now and again and just look at it! (huge sigh........) (I will more than likely cut it into fat quarters so I'll quit fussing about

A Lot Of Reading Going On

Not much quilting going on at my house........... I've been reading every spare minute I can get it seems. I'm catching up on all of Nicholas Sparks books.... and, everyone a tearjerker! My favorite's will always be the Notebook and The Wedding. If you get the chance tho you should read Three Weeks With My Brother.... it will introduce you to Nicholas Sparks the person and his family. I have two more on hold at the library and will no doubt finish another one tomorrow!

I did manage to read the latest book by Danielle Steel a couple weeks ago.... The Rogue.

And, I got a piece of fabric to make some table runners for Thanksgiving. I will be getting back to making them before long. And, making some more of the blocks for the batiks and black stars.

I found a new place to go for my walk.... and, not far from my own house. My oldest son and I discovered it last night. I'll take some pictures when I go again. (I hope you enjoy the pictures I'm putting in the heading of my blog.... I take them myself ... except this latest one is one my youngest son took).
